The Godzilla And Kong Films: 6 Questions We Have About The Future Of The MonsterVerse


Depart a Remark

Godzilla vs. Kong

There’s rather a lot we already know concerning the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong. We know the director, the date, and even a few of its competitors on the field workplace. However as a lot as we do know concerning the film, there’s additionally rather a lot that we don’t know. Not solely that, however there are additionally many lingering questions concerning the MonsterVerse on the whole, since Godzilla: King of the Monsters didn’t accomplish that nice on the field workplace.

However worry not, monster followers, since I’m right here to sift via among the questions and ship the most effective solutions I can. As a result of if Godzilla vs. Kong does do properly on the field workplace (regardless of Pixar’s Soul popping out the very same weekend – November 20, 2020) then there are numerous large prospects for the way forward for the MonsterVerse that would doubtlessly make followers very completely happy. So let’s see what we are able to discover out, we could?

Godzilla vs. Kong

Will the MonsterVerse Proceed After Godzilla vs. Kong?

Right here’s the multi-million greenback query. Godzilla vs. Kong is the final film formally slated for the MonsterVerse, which now consists of the 2014 Godzilla, Kong: Cranium Island, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. However the query is, will there be any extra motion pictures within the MonsterVerse following Godzilla vs. Kong?

Nicely, probably, however issues aren’t wanting so nice. Largely due to diminishing returns. The 2014 Godzilla made a wholesome $527 million worldwide towards its $160 million finances, making it a success. Likewise with Kong: Cranium Island, which price $185 million, however remodeled $566.7 million worldwide. However Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which price $170 million, solely made $386.6 million worldwide. A minor hiccup? Possibly. However with King of the Monsters together with fan favorites like Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, one would assume that this might be the largest film but within the MonsterVerse, however as a substitute, it carried out the weakest. In order that implies that Godzilla vs. Kong actually has to step it up on the field workplace if there are going to be extra motion pictures within the collection.


/* BS event triggers */ var played_media_items = {}; player.on('play', function(){ var partial_uuid = $(document.getElementById(config.div_id)).closest('.partial').attr('data-uuid') || ""; var item = player.getPlaylistItem(player.getPlaylistIndex()); if (!played_media_items[item.mediaid]) { played_media_items[item.mediaid] = true; window.PubSub.publish('video_play', { uuid: partial_uuid, data:{ partial_source: getPartialSource(), jwplayer_id: player.getConfig().pid, media_id: item.mediaid, media_title: item.title } }); } }); if ( document.readyState === "complete" || (document.readyState !== "loading" && !document.documentElement.doScroll) ) { fireVideoEmbedEvent(); } else { document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", fireVideoEmbedEvent); } function fireVideoEmbedEvent(){ var partial_uuid = $(document.getElementById(config.div_id)).closest('.partial').attr('data-uuid') || ""; window.PubSub.publish('video_embed', { uuid: partial_uuid, data:{ partial_source: getPartialSource(), jwplayer_id: player.getConfig().pid, media_id:"", media_title:"" } }); } function getPartialSource() { if ((config.div_id || '').match(/rr_/)) { return 'snippet:jwplayer_rr_trending'; } else if ((config.div_id || '').match(/inline_/)) { return 'snippet:jwplayer_inline_article_match'; } return 'snippet:jwplayer_recommended'; } }; document.head.appendChild(script); })();

Will Different Monsters Get Solo Films?

This actually goes to my final level, because it all is determined by Godzilla vs. Kong’s field workplace efficiency. However you possibly can’t fault Legendary Footage for attempting. Godzilla: King of the Monsters featured many alternative titans, with a few of them seen on the finish bowing to Godzilla. King of the Monsters additionally featured well-liked monsters like Mothra and Rodan, who’ve had solo motion pictures of their very own again within the ’50s and ’60s. One would assume that Legendary would love to present these different titans the highlight.

And they nonetheless may. The Mothra twin sisters had been teased in King of the Monsters, and Rodan didn’t die in that film, so there’s all the time the possibility that he may present up once more in his personal image. Plus, there’ll in all probability be a second Kong film if Godzilla vs. Kong does properly. However a Mothra or a Rodan film in all probability would not be too far off, both. They’ve already been arrange as it’s.

King Kong vs. Godzilla

Who Will Win the Godzilla Vs. Kong Combat, and What May That Imply For the Future of the Franchise?

Godzilla vs. Kong’s director, Adam Wingard, says that he desires there to be a victor in his film, which is sweet information for followers of the 1962 film, King Kong vs. Godzilla, as a result of neither behemoth received in that movie.

However what may the victor of this film imply for the way forward for the franchise? Nicely, as I stated within the final entry, if this film is profitable, then there’ll probably be a Kong 2. And since Godzilla has already gotten two motion pictures, my prediction is that Kong will “win” on this movie. What a win will truly appear like is debatable, bit my guess is on the King, which might doubtlessly lead right into a Kong sequel.


Will We Really See Mechagodzilla?

And then there’s the chance that Mechagodzilla could possibly be on this film! The inspiration for this concept is from newspaper clippings on the finish credit of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. A few of the clippings reveal a lead-up to Godzilla vs. Kong, with just a few of them mentioning how the titans themselves could also be coming from Cranium Island, which might technically make King Kong the king of the titans. However essentially the most attention-grabbing clipping comes from one with the headline, “Monarch Boosts Forces Round Cranium Island”, because it mentions a “mechanized big.” Monarch, for those who don’t keep in mind, is the group behind protecting the titans in test.

This may be superior, since Mechagodzilla’s solely American look, consider it or not, is within the film, Prepared Participant One. Might the individuals at Monarch wage conflict towards the 2 titans in an enormous mech? Indicators are definitely pointing in that route.

Pacific Rim: Uprising

Is a Pacific Rim Crossover Nonetheless Presumably within the Playing cards?

This can be a loopy concept, however previous to the discharge of Pacific Rim: Rebellion, the movie’s director, Steven S. DeKnight, teased {that a} Pacific Rim/Godzilla crossover was a chance. Might that be the “mechanized big” that’s being referred to somewhat than Mechagodzilla?

That might be fairly badass, however unlikely. Sadly, Pacific Rim: Rebellion didn’t do in addition to initially hoped. When you didn’t know, the unique Pacific Rim did okay within the U.S., and surprisingly properly in China. However with Rebellion not doing in addition to anticipated, it sort of squelched the chance of the Pacific Rim model persevering with on the massive display (although, we’re getting a Netflix anime). Nonetheless, if Godzilla vs. Kong does properly, perhaps it would reinvigorate the thought of a crossover. It is nonetheless too early to say.

Shin Godzilla

Will the Subsequent Toho Godzilla Films Contemplate the American Godzilla Films as Canon?

And lastly, what is perhaps essentially the most attention-grabbing query is the place these American Godzilla motion pictures will stand with the Toho Godzilla motion pictures. In an interview with the Japanese publication, Nikkei Fashion (by way of Bloody Disgusting), Toho’s Chief Godzilla officer, Keiji Ota, revealed again in 2018 that after the take care of Warner Bros. expires in 2021, Toho plans to create their very own Godzilla “shared universe”. This would come with all of the well-known monsters like Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah present in King of the Monsters, and probably different fan favorites like Gigan, Destoroyah, and Biollante.

The query is, will Toho contemplate the American Godzilla movies as canon, or will they only ignore them altogether? Nicely, consider it or not, however the Godzilla featured in Roland Emmerich’s 1998 Godzilla film was truly repurposed within the Toho produced Godzilla: Remaining Wars and simply referred to as Zilla. If Toho isn’t happy by the outcomes of Godzilla vs. Kong, you may see the American Godzilla in a future Toho film, getting knocked round by the Japanese Godzilla.

And these are my questions. Do you’ve gotten any questions of your individual? Depart them under within the feedback.
