Kong: Skull Island will be giving the great ape a major size upgrade

06.22.2016

Kong: Skull Island

King Kong has never been a slouch in the size department, but compared to Godzilla, he's rather puny. With Warner Bros. gathering up their giant monsters under one roof, they've realized that King Kong will need a size upgrade if the great ape is to pose a threat to the over 300ft tall Godzilla. During the Warner Bros. panel at CineEurope in Barcelona, KONG: SKULL ISLAND director Jordan Vogt-Roberts revealed that his Kong will be quite a lot larger than the previous American incarnations.

This is going to be the biggest Kong there's ever been, not 10 foot or 30 foot, but a 100-foot ape.

Those 100 feet still fall significantly lower than Godzilla's height, but who knows, perhaps Kong will receive another size upgrade in between KONG: SKULL ISLAND and GODZILLA VS. KING KONG. Of course, being an ape, King Kong will also be quite a bit more agile than ol' Godzilla. It pays to be limber, folks. Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Mitchell, John C. Reilly, John Goodman, Tom Wilkinson, Toby Kebbell, Corey Hawkins, and Shea Whigam all star in KONG: SKULL ISLAND which is due out on March 10, 2017. The sequel to GODZILLA will follow on March 22, 2019 and the two will finally face off in GODZILLA VS. KING KONG on May 29, 2020.

Of all the proposed shared universes, I hate this one the most. Give it up! The two just don't work together and should never be forced into one movie! It doesn't make sense for Kong to be that big, (even if he's still too small to take on Godzilla) given that everything on Skull Island would have to go from big to ridiculously sized just to compare with him. I also have zero interest in seeing these two fight. What would be their motivation at this point? Godzilla is earth's guardian in the

Godzilla is earth's guardian in the new franchise, so is Kong suddenly going to go from sympathetic to villainous? Did we not learn anything from the terrible Japanese film that paired these two together? Can this thing now!

Why stop there?

I can hear the producers now; Why not a 1000 foot Kong? 10,000 feet! And to keep things fresh, let's make Kong a lizard and have a gorilla Godzilla! Oh and can we can squeeze Johnny Depp somewhere in there? Haha jk jk I don't really care

If it's the original-sized King Kong that somehow gets bigger, can we at least get a training montage?

Why does every universe have to be combined nowadays. The Godzilla and Kong ones especially shouldn't be united.

Stupid

Seems like all these movies nowadays have to have something 'versus' or 'against' something else. Gets boring pretty quickly.

Like "Civil War"? Which was not boring. Or is this just a slam against "BvS"?
Not sure what you mean beyond that. Pretty much every any movie that is detailed on this site, has something vs something. Hero vs villain. Humans vs aliens. People vs dinosaurs. Freddy vs Jason. Luke Sywalker vs Darth Vader. Transformers vs transformers. Ninja turtles vs Shredder. Indiana Jones vs Nazis. Snake Plisken vs the Duke of New York.

I'm with yah on this. Seems like everyone wants a WWE match for the kids. Think I started noticing with Alien vs Predator (2004). Way to fuck up a franchise.

I see it as a cop out to from doing something original.

I still think it's a terrible idea....

You finally create a Godzilla that's not a joke, then immediately team him up with monsters from his past when it was ALL a joke. Even though I wasn't a huge fan of the monsters they designed for the film, at least they were something different. There was a Godzilla script floating around before Emmerich's debacle that had to do with a meteorite crashing to Earth and creating a monster out of animal DNA from near the crash. The result was basically a Griffin, and might have been pretty cool

The result was basically a Griffin, and might have been pretty cool (bat wings, lion's body, eel's tongue, etc. . . ). I just don't understand why they're trying to go backward and do a better job with things we've seen a dozen times already. It makes no sense.

Given that he's expected to eventually face Godzilla, this only makes sense.
