Skull Island To Pave The Way For King Kong Vs Godzilla Movie

Cinematic shared universes could potentially grow to monstrous proportions. This time we’re not talking comic book crossovers but giant monster crossovers. Because according to Deadline, Legendary Picture’s King Kong “origin” story movie Skull Island (ick, that’s still causing disturbing images of giant ape rutting scenes in our heads) has moved from Universal to Warner Bros in order to facilitate the development of a King Kong Vs Godzilla movie that ties in with the continuity of the current Universal-distributed, Gareth Edwards-directed Godzilla films.

Skull Island is still set for a release date of 10 March 2017 with a sequel to Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla planned for 8 June 2018. Presuming they both have successful enough box office clout, the Eighth Wonder Of The World will be taking on the King of Monsters in the ultimate movie monster smackdown.

The Japanese studio that created Godzilla, Toho, pitted the two movie giants against each other in 1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla.

Kong: Skull Island, which will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer),  will take audiences to the the island of super-apes where Kong was born.

The Godzilla sequel is rumoured to feature some other famous Kaiju, such as Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah, although none have been fully confirmed at this time.
