Don’t you love when companies get along? According to Deadline, Legendary Pictures (which parted ways with Warner Bros and moved to Universal last year) has moved their in progress, Kong: Skull Island to Warner Bros (from Universal) in order to have Godzilla and King Kong under the same roof. What this means is that after the Kong: Skull Island reboot and the also in-progress Godzilla 2 (which promises all sorts of Kaiju mayhem on its own), Legendary plans a team up/versus film with the two.
With all the hype surrounding crossovers lately, you’d think I’d be against this on principle. But nope, I’m a huge mark who can’t wait for this. There are few film series I’m unabashedly a fan of, and this is one of them. I can’t wait for their rematch. King Kong might’ve taken the first round (cause he’s a dirty, dirty fighter) but with Godzilla’s blown popularity? I don’t know. Either way, I’m ready for a shared giant monster universe.
This is going to look so damn good, you guys. But we’ll have to wait long after Godzilla 2 comes out in 2018. Soooooooo I wish I didn’t know about this yet. Wait, I ruined it for you too! Now we’re both nervous wrecks waiting for this hahahaha![via Deadline]
