Godzilla vs. Kong MonsterVerse Character:
Godzilla vs. Kong will take the headlight to its name till the release, and promisingly every week after the release because the trailer has sent a wave of excitement amongst the viewers. The trailer was straight up a bomb that exploded in the right way. The first wave of promotion started right away when WarnerBros. announced that the fans of the MonsterVerse will not have to wait till May 29, 2020, as the movie has been preponed to March 13, 2021. But then again, fans did not know a single thing about the movie except the early release of toys. But yes, that wasn’t enough. And now, the trailer is here. Directed by Adam Wingard, Godzilla vs. Kong will see the two Titans clash in a “spectacular battle for the ages” while Monarch still tries to determine the origins of the Titans.

Let’s talk about the characters that will be returning or will be becoming a part of the MonsterVerse:
The new film will mark Godzilla’s third appearance in the MonsterVerse. In 2014’s Godzilla, the said character emerges as the “alpha predator” on a mission to hunt down the M.U.T.O.s, seemingly in an effort to preserve balance. The titular Titan returned in Godzilla: King of the Monsters for a dramatic showdown with his ancient rival and longtime Toho antagonist, King Ghidorah. After three brutal battles and heroic sacrifices from both Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Mothra, Godzilla entered into his burning form and finally put an end to King Ghidorah.
It’s have been nearly fifty years since King Kong encountered a group of humans and battled the Skullcrawlers in Kong: Skull Island. The actions of humans caused the Skullcrawlers to emerge from the Hollow Earth tunnels beneath Skull Island, forcing Kong to make a stand against them. Afterward, a Monarch outpost was built on Skull Island, which now monitors Kong. He was referenced numerous times in King of the Monsters, but Kong never answered Ghodirah’s call. When Ghidorah summoned all the Titans, Kong ignored the call simply because he didn’t regard Ghidorah as the true alpha. This may mean that he won’t accept Godzilla as the alpha either. It could be that when the two finally meet, Kong will challenge Godzilla for the role of the alpha Titan. In Godzilla vs. Kong, it’s possible that this person will be Skarsgard’s character since he reportedly interacts with Kong in some way.
The Chen Sisters
Zhang Ziyi plays the dual roles of Dr. Ilene Chen and Dr. Ling in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, though Dr. Ling is only present in one scene. Dr. Chen, however, is an important character who works at Monarch and is actively involved in their mission to avert the crisis put into motion by the eco-terrorists. The Twin Fairies are usually present whenever Mothra is born, which is why it was fitting that Dr. Ling was standing nearby when Mothra emerged from her cocoon in King of the Monsters. The fact that Zhang Ziyi is one of only three actors coming back for King of the Monsters could provide evidence for Mother’s return in Godzilla vs. Kong.
Kyle Chandler’s Mark Russell was the human protagonist of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but for this film, Skarsgard has top-billing instead. Where Mark fits into King of the Monsters hasn’t been disclosed, but his presence in the movie suggests that he has renewed his ties to Monarch. In King of the Monsters, Mark – the inventor of the Orca – turned his back on his work but was forced to team up with Monarch when his wife and daughter used the Orca to wake up the Titans.
In King of the Monsters, Stranger Things, star Millie Bobby Brown portrayed Madison Russell, the daughter of Mark and Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga). After initially siding with Emma out of loyalty to her mother, Madison ultimately betrayed her and the eco-terrorists who were led by Alan Jonah (Charles Dance). According to Brown, what side she’ll end up on in Godzilla vs. Kong, whether it be Godzilla’s or Kong’s, will be part of her character’s journey in the movie.
Played by Eiza Gonzalez, Maya Simmons is revealed very briefly in the first trailer, in a helicopter overseeing Kong’s transit on the Monarch ship. So far, the only information on her calls her a “very smart woman behind a company” suggesting she’s a power player with Monarch. She’s also being described as “slightly comedic”.
Ilene Andrews and Jia
Rebecca Hall’s newcomer Ilene Andrews is linked to Kong and appears to be an expert not only on Skull Island’s resident monster but also on the history of the Titans in general. Most intriguingly, she’s also the guardian of Jia, a young girl with a special link with Kong who is the only person he will communicate with. She’s played by Kaylee Hottle and is arguably the most important new character of all.
Played by Alexander Skarsgård, Nathan Lind is a geologist who is described as an atypical alpha male character. In the first trailer, he’s the one who identifies that humanity needs Kong, so it’s likely he’s involved in Monarch’s attempts to use Kong to restore order.
The previously unrevealed son of Ken Watanabe’s Dr. Ishiro Serizawa (or at least another relative), Ren appears to be linked to the mysterious Mechagodzilla plans, judging by the graphic behind him in the trailer.
Nozuki & Warbat
The newest additions to the Monsterverse’s cast of monsters, Nozuki and Warbat are shown in the trailer attacking Kong on Skull Island. Whether it’s in the present or during the Titan War remains unconfirmed for now.
Though there’s very little on his character so far, Bernie Hayes is played by Brian Tyree Henry and joins Millie Bobby Brown and Julian Dennison’s characters on their quest to uncover the truth about Godzilla. He seems to be an insider of some sort, which suggests he’s the key to unveiling Mechagodzilla to Madison and Josh.
Played by Demián Bichir, Walter Simmons is another character linked to the key human organizations and is presumably Maya’s father.
