Kong is back for Godzilla vs. Kong, but now the only question is, how much has he changed since his last MonsterVerse appearance? The new artwork for the film is giving a clue about the changes over the decades.
It has been over 45 years since the titular Titan went with the military and saved his home from the Skullcrawlers in Kong: Skull Island. The second MonsterVerse movie took place in 1973, and was released in 2017.
The King of Skull Island will return to the main screen with the fourth installment of the MonsterVerse, Godzilla vs. Kong. As of now, the movie will be hitting the theatres in May 2021. An Adam Wingard directorial, Godzilla vs. Kong, will be declaring a definitive winner when the two Titans come for their long-awaited showdown.
What is the plotline for Godzilla v/s Kong?
Now, if we are talking about the story, it is revolving around what was there in the credits of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It reveals that the secret government organization known as Monarch will soon begin an exploration of the Hollow Earth. Also, the Monarch’s investigation about the origin of the Titans of the MonsterVerse will somehow be linking with a human conspiracy to eliminate the monsters for good.
Box art from the packaging of a Godzilla vs. Kong action figure gave out a good look at the two Titans battling it out on top of an aircraft carrier. This image makes it clear that Kong will have changed a lot since Skull Island.
Are there any changes in the physical appearance of Kong?
As previously said, Kong went through a massive growth spurt. He was only 104 feet tall in his first MonsterVerse movie, which is very less than Godzilla’s towering height of 393 feet in King of the Monsters.
Without a doubt, this is one of the most significant changes in Godzilla vs. Kong. But it is not the only one. It seems that Kong now has a beard of fur on his chin. It is much more noticeable in another piece of artwork for Godzilla vs. Kong.
What is Kong known for?
For decades Kong has kept Skull Island safe. So there is a good chance that he’s learned a lot from his battles with the monsters. Although Titans are known to be incredibly intelligent, Kong, in particular, is known for his impressive intellect. The best part is, Kong can learn from his mistakes and his past experiences with other monsters.
This is a great advantage for him when he goes up against Godzilla. Also, there is a high chance that Kong’s intelligence will lead him to a giant stone ax in Godzilla vs. Kong.
