    I've always held that, regardless of size between the two, Kong doesn't really have any durability compared to Godzilla. He's flesh and blood. He is easily cut/slashed and burned as seen in 'Kong: Skull Island' but I suppose you could make the case that, after growing to the size he has because of the radiation coming from Skull Island, he also has potentially gained some form of "super" durability that the Titans have. How far that goes in a fight between the two remains to be seen.
    i think after the skull island movie it was damn explicit that kong have "super" abilities as well, obviously he is not just a giant gorilla, he can't shot lazer from his ass but his martial abilities are definitely super, including his durability, that punch rly showed everything

    i think people re underestimating how goddamn strong gorillas are, compared to humans or other animals, take that and put into godzila size, with superior speed? that this is terrifying

    I keep seeing Mecha Godzilla rumors/leaks/theories/speculation a lot, and that makes sense with the hints we've seen, and (unverified?) leaks, but one thing; King Ghidora's head was made a big deal in the after credits scene of King of Monsters. I don't think that was for nothing. I mean, yeah, we might get Mecha Godzilla, but I really thought a King Ghodora clone might also be another threat in this movie in place of or on top of MG. King of Monsters also hinted Ghidora is indeed from outer space. Maybe whatever world it's from, that planet's race creates MG? Nothing is off the table.

    Also hope we see Rodan and Mothra again but long shot I suppose.

    Yeah yeah, none of it is supposed to make sense, I know.
    Probably they'll make him faster and/or more intelligent; Kong used tools and weapons in Skull Island and already does in the trailers. As us humans can attest to IRL, smarts can often beat strong.

    If Godzilla swallows another nuke he should give any titan a problem...but especially to a mecha of any sort.

    Kong: Skull Island Show Coming To Netflix Following Shipwreck Characters.

    https://screenrant.com/kong-skull-is...story-details/
    BY RACHEL LABONTE 16 HOURS AGO

    Taking place in the 1970s, Kong: Skull Island follows a scientific expedition to the mysterious titular island, which is home to various terrifying creatures. The humans' arrival on Skull Island puts them on a collision course with the monsters and introduces them to the king of the island: Kong. It starred Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly, and John Goodman, among others. In earning $566.7 million worldwide, it is currently the highest-grossing movie within the MonsterVerse. Up until now, however, there hasn't been a direct follow-up to the project.

    Today, Netflix has announced the development of an anime series titled Skull Island. Described as a new chapter in the MonsterVerse, Skull Island will follow shipwrecked characters as they try to escape their dangerous surroundings, which of course are home to "prehistoric monsters, including the greatest titan of them all, Kong." Brian Duffield (Underwater) will serve as a writer and executive producer. Also executive producing is Jacob Robinson under his company Tractor Pants. Powerhouse Animation, the studio behind Castlevania and Blood of Zeus, will work on Skull Island.

    In moving to animation and Netflix, the MonsterVerse is growing in a brand new direction. Skull Island presents the opportunity to further develop the strange location, which so far has really only been shown in the 2017 film. It isn't clear as to when in the MonsterVerse timeline Skull Island will take place, but it seems likely it will be sometime after the movie itself. Since Godzilla vs. Kong will see the giant ape leaving Skull Island, the anime will have to take place well before that, so it will potentially fall somewhere between the two.

    It also seems likely Skull Island will be populated by entirely new characters, so audiences shouldn't expect to hear Hiddleston or Larson lending their voices. There could be references to the characters found within Kong: Skull Island, particularly in the case of Reilly's Hank Marlow. He lived on the island for decades before the start of the film, and he surely left a mark on the area. All told, there are many possibilities for where this new Kong: Skull Island project can go, and it will be interesting to see how it impacts the MonsterVerse.

People hardly complain that "the human side plotline sucks", which is a valid complaint, but mostly the argument is over the fact that the movies focus too much time on the humans. And I am like, HAVE YOU EVEN WATCHED GODZILLA!?

    Many of the Showa series also focus a lot of time on the human side. Including the original Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, although that admittedly is one of the weaker of the Showa series. I've watched Ebirah, Terror of the Deep recently, and Godzilla had a low amount of screentime in that movie as well compared to the humans.

    I mean, yeah I can see why the human plot in 2014 is bad, it does get pretty cringe in places. But to use the fact it focuses too much time on the humans against the movie is just silly because Godzilla 2014 isn't even the first movie in the franchise to do so. It wasn't even the second, third, or even fourth!
    Nobody said it's the first movie of Godzilla's franchise to focus on humans.
    But we're not talking about Godzilla's movie from another generation where there were technical limitations. Now we're going to IMAX theaters with Dolby surround 9.1 to see cutting-edge CGI 100m-high monsters hitting each other.

    Godzilla 2014 was like, hey Godzilla will appear on screen fighting against his enemy *switches from Hawaii to San Francisco (?) where you can see the fight happening on a 10inch tv in the background while NPCs are talking about their miserable life nobody cares about*

    Godzilla KotM was the same. Hey mate, Godzilla and Mothra will be fighting Rodan + Ghidorah ! Damn 2v2 that will be epic ! *camera switches from the fight to useless man looking for his useless girl/boy (don't even remember) somewhere where neither should be in the first place* *camera switches back to the fight, oh, Godzilla nearly dead already lol sorry*
    Then Mothra sacrifices, ready for Godzilla round 2 ! LOL U THOUGHT *cameras switches back to useless dude*

    I mean, Godzilla movies are 4 seconds of fight for 10 minutes of useless human drama. Not even full scale drama. But more like "where is my identity card, I'm sure I had it in my pocket 2 minutes ago" drama.

    Who decides all that?

    Also, I never heard of Primal Rage. Bloody Roar yes, Primal Rage nope.

    Humans creating things they shouldn't because it messes with the "natural order" of the world/titans.

    So is this movie a sequel to anything, or is it all original? Godzilla and King Kong have been rebooted so many times it's hard to tell.

    Sequel to Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017) and Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019).

    Part of what they call the MonsterVerse, which is like a Marvel-esque shared cinematic universe.

    They are all pretty good popcorn flicks. Stupid, big and loud popcorn flicks.

    Primal Rage was an old 2D fighting game(originally an arcade, then brought to SNES, Sega, and other systems) set in a post-apocalyptic Earth where the players took the role of one of I think 8 supernatural dinosaurs/giant apes who were worshiped as gods by the surviving humans(you could eat them during fights to regain some health). It had all the typical post-MK fighting game tropes of special moves, blood, and fatalities as well as a couple of "crude" moves(one of the apes had a fatality where he pisses on his opponent).

    Thanks! It's so bad I love it, and made me want to revisit King Kong Escapes. I remember Linda Jo Miller being quite the cutie.

    This is... interesting, I guess. Not a fan of it taking place back in the 70's but I suppose it makes sense as it will take place within the MonsterVerse.


    Now I have to watch Netflix for Godzilla: Singular Point and now this. Damn it man.

    Anyone else got the feeling it’s going to go the way of Batman vs Superman where they beat the heck out of each other and end up teaming up on a bigger bad?
