Godzilla: King of The Monsters hit theaters not too long ago and the film was not received too well. 2014’s Godzilla and 2017’s Kong: Skull Island gave the audience a taste of what’s to come from WB’s Monsterverse. Although the recent Godzilla release showed promise from the trailers, the film was panned by critics and wasn’t the box office smashed the studio wanted. Now, the proposed Godzilla Vs. Kong film might have reached a snag because of recent events.
The inevitable battle between film’s biggest monsters was expected to be released on March 13, 2020. Originally the film was set for a May 22nd opening but was moved in order to avoid heavy competition from the latest Fast and Furious installment. That March 13th may no longer be the case as well due to the box office numbers.
While speaking to Deadline, Warner Bros. studio chairman Toby Emmerich, spoke about the status on the big kaiju battle film. Emmerich was asked a question regarding franchise fatigue and the tanking of Godzilla: King of The Monsters. He said that Godzilla Vs. King Kong “will deliver for fans in the way they were looking for.”
Emmerich later added:
“It might come out later in the year, so we can deliver an A+ movie”
It sounds like WB might be getting nervous with another franchise.
Not a whole lot is known about the plot regarding Godzilla Vs. King Kong but we did find a synopsis to tide any over:
In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.
This film could be too big for the WB to cancel so, the audience might get a Godzilla Vs. Kong whether they like it or not.
