WB is betting big on Godzilla vs. Kong. They certainly think that the battle between Godzilla & Kong could be one much bigger than Batman V Superman. They have taken every measure for Godzilla & Kong to perform well. When Godzilla: King of the Monsters didn’t do well at the Box Office, WB delayed the next film in the Monsterverse franchise to possibly fix it. Godzilla vs. Kong was pushed from March to November 2020. But COVID-19 has caused the film to be delayed even further. It has now taken Matrix 4’s previous date of May 21, 2021.
We recently discussed a theory that Mothra will return from the dead and stop the clash of the titans. But, we still don’t know why these two giants will take each other on in the first place. One angle could be that both of them will think of each other as a destroyer of Earth. So, they’d battle each other to save Earth. Another angle could be that they’d simply fight each other to see who’s alpha. But since the MonsterVerse has been developing an entire mythos around their existence on Earth, we believe that the battle between them has to be a bit more layered. And that’s why, we’ve got a new theory suggesting that their battle could be based on a territorial conflict.
Before we move forward with the theory, check out he official synopsis of the movie:
“In a new world where man and monster now coexist, Monarch must lead the way to a prosperous future alongside the Titans, keeping humanity in check. However, rival factions that want to manipulate the Titans for war begin to rise under the guise of a nefarious conspiracy, threatening to wipe out all life on the planet. Meanwhile, on Skull Island, strange seismic activity draws the attention of Godzilla and Kong alike.”
With this synopsis, 3 things become clear. First, the humans have a conspiracy in play. Second, it is a faction of humans who might manipulate Godzilla & Kong into fighting each other. And third, Skull Island is important and the Titans are attracted towards it. The Conspiracy here could be that the humans have created Mechagodzilla to end the Titans (good or bad). And Skull Island is an important destination because it has been confirmed as the entry point to “Hollow Earth.”
It was revealed that the Hollow Earth is where Godzilla hid in the past when the humans & Titans co-existed. The humans of an ancient city discovered by Monarch, worshipped Godzilla as a God. The post credits sequence of Godzilla: King of the Monsters hides a bunch of details. Among the several news articles and findings, these credits show how Monarch is interested to explore Skull Island in particular. If you watch the credits properly, you’d notice that the Titans have been spread across continents, and they’ve been restoring mother nature to its former glory. But, there’s also an article headline which suggested “Ancient rivalries between Titans suspected.” And then, the credits ended with the following image of Godzilla & Kong engraved in a cave:
This image wasn’t just an implication for the upcoming battle between Godzilla & Kong. But it is also proof that Godzilla & Kong’s ancestors fought each other hundreds or thousands of years ago. This battle must have taken somewhere. It could have taken place on Skull Island. After the battle, Godzilla may have left Skull Island using the giant tunnels beneath the surface world, which are accessible through the Hollow Earth. A few Titans may have followed him and ended up in various continents across the globe. Even though the titans have been scattered across the globe since forever, it might be possible that Skull Island was their original home. Since all the Titans are going to be attracted towards Skull Island through seismic waves, it is possibly that Godzilla could be coming back to claim an area that was once his home. Let’s see who would win this territorial battle, a God, or a King?
