🚨 SPOILERS AHEAD 🚨
The MonsterVerse’s last film in its franchise might be its most successful one. Godzilla vs Kong is proving to be a post pandemic box office juggernaut both internationally and state side (despite many people in America viewing it on HBO Max.) GVK was always intended to be the final chapter in the MonsterVerse saga and the rights were meant to revert back to Toho. The Japanese studio had talked about wanting to make their own Godzilla films for the new millennium using the CGI technology first implemented in the critically acclaimed Shin Godzilla. However, money talks and Toho might be better off extending their big radioactive lizard’s green card. But where does the MonsterVerse go from here? Despite the mass appeal and love for Godzilla, fans and non fans alike appear to have a little bit more love for Kong. After all, he’s American and he’s a monkey. Everyone loves monkeys. Still the question remains, where do these two colossal titans and their fearsome friends show up next? Here’s some ideas HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience had:
Kong At The Center Of The Earth
When we leave Kong at the end of GVK he is the ruler of The Hollow Earth. Or is he? Kong might be the new Apex Predator in town, but whose to say he wouldn’t have any challengers. Maybe a sequel would give the giant ape his full name at the end, King Kong.
Destroy All Monsters
Let’s face it, GVK didn’t feel like a closing chapter. It felt more like a renewed starting point in the MonsterVerse. But if Warner Bros really wanted to go all out with a mega Monster crossover, why not remake the Avengers Endgame of its time, Destroy All Monsters. Imagine a new alien threat emerges from the Hollow Earth and they have dispatched a creature made from the Oxygen Destroyer used in KOTM. Now Kong and Godzilla must lead the other Titans in a winner takes all battle for supremacy of the Earth.
Pacific Rim Crossover
If you watched GVK you know Mecha-Godzilla is in it. The groundwork has been laid for mechs in the MonsterVerse. Not to mention how one of the characters in the film controls MG is reminiscent of how the Jaeger pilots in Pacific Rim control their giant mechs. Combine this with how MG’s hand turrets look almost identical to the Jaegers hand turrets then you have some very interesting world building that could lend itself to a crossover.
Even if GVK is the last time we see Godzilla or Kong on the big screen and together, what a way to go out. The action scenes and subtle homages to the original King Kong vs Godzilla makes this the most enjoyable post pandemic film to come out yet!
