Toyline Reveals Godzilla vs Kong feature Titan:
Godzilla is a creation of the Japanese monster movie genre of the 1950s and 1960s. But he has found newfound success in the west with the new Warner Brothers MonsterVerse movies. Kong is also one such monster who has gained Warner Brothers acclamation in the 21st Century. Warner Brothers are making a Monster Verse and they have already released three movies on that line – Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Now Warner Brothers are on track to release the fourth Monster Verse movie titled Godzilla vs. Kong. And believe it or not, the movie will not feature one but three titans!!
The Monster Verse movies have been widely successful. The first Godzilla movie made more than twice its budget in the International Box Office. Godzilla: King of the Monsters made around US 386 Million Dollars at the Box Office. Kong: Skull Island made, even more, tapping out at about US 566 Million Dollars. The Monster Verse movies are about to gain some major audience with the fourth installment of the same, which will feature two of the most popular Titans in movie history – Godzilla and King Kong. The fans are eager to see the two Titans clash. But as it turns out, there is going to be another Titan in the fray and the plot might not be as straightforward as everyone thought it would be.
The Monster Verse started off with 2014’s Godzilla movie directed by Gareth Edwards, which firmly established the monstrous titan for a modern audience and set up the framework for connecting the dots. Monarch, the organization that was working and researching on Titans from behind the scenes, was also present in Kong: Skull Island, financing the research team that went into the Skull Island in search of mythical beasts. Kong: Skull Island revealed that there aren’t a few but many monsters living in the corners of the planet and the Earth belongs to them, not us.
Kong led to the groundwork for Godzilla: King of the Monsters where the Reptilian Titan faced off against King Ghidorah and Rodan, and was supported by Mothra, Queen of the Titans. In the fourth monster Verse Godzilla vs. Kong movie, the focus will be on the Origin of the Titans.
The Toyline we are talking about reveals action figures for not just Kong and Godzilla. Two other monsters are featured within the merchandise. The first is the Skull-Crawlers, the bone-headed beasts that were the primary antagonists during the King: Skull Island movie. But it is the second newly revealed villain that might catch your attention. The fourth action figure is of a winged snake-like creature that is better known in the Monster World as Nozuki, the Gigantic Snake Demon of the Under World. How Nozuki fits into the equation of the movie is still up for debate. Guess we have to wait and find out.
The release date for Godzilla vs. Kong is slated for the 20th of November this year. But due to COVID 19, it might be deferred to a later date. Here’s to hoping Warner Brothers can make it in time.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters as released on the 13th of May last year. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
