    They have to license Godzilla and all of his characters from Toho. The moment Toho decides to take their toys and go home, the monsterverse is caput. By making Kong the star they future proof themselves from this.

    There's also the fact that the Kong movies just make more money than the Godzilla ones for them.

      Prove the point on why they should be kissing Toho’s ass. Directed said in GvK he was a Godzilla fan but fell in love with Kong. Original script Kong was going to get jobbed a lot more. It’s not rocket science why Kong is liked. He’s more sympathetic and relatable versus a unstoppable atomic lizard. It’s literally giant monster version of Superman and Batman

              Skull Island started development as a Jackson prequel before it became its own thing. It's apparently why Islands of Adventure got that Skull Island ride instead of using that plot for a Jurassic Park expansion, it was pushed through just before Jackson bailed out.
              Incidentally, Wingard was supposed to direct that version of Skull Island.

            Because even if the character were public domain, if you have the best example or the most money put into your version, yours can be the definitive one in the public eye. See: Batman and Superman in about 10 years.

              King Kong's somewhere in-between. The original novelization is public domain from never being renewed, so the characters and storyline are public domain, but certain details that changed between the script drafts that book was based on and the final film are still protected, which is why the shipwreck temple in Monsterverse heavily implied to be the '33 boat is called the Wanderer instead of the Venture and also why there's been multiple bad King Kong cartoons since the late 90s.
              The trademarks to King Kong are in dispute between WB, Universal, and Merian C. Cooper's estate which all have tried staking a claim on being the legitimate owners of Kong, but its a confusing clusterfrick and honestly, the Cooper estate's Kong franchise (which is what that shitty video game is tied into) is mostly built on the back of a rewrite of the public domain novel anyways, so it's about as "TRUE AND HONEST KONG" as the aforementioned shitty cartoons.

    It’s easier for audiences to sympathize with our fellow mammals, which is why a lot of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s Godzilla movies gave him a monkey/puppy/feline face. Legendaryzilla is more reptilian, so Kong has to be the pathos character. Toho is also supposedly being strict about Godzilla is allowed to emote. They want him portrayed as a “god of destruction” monster now instead of a courageous heroic one. That isn’t to say that Godzilla is bad, just that he has his own motivations that may or may not align with the human cast. Kong is more like Mighty Joe Young now who is a hero on the same side as the humans.

        Nah she was kino in KOTM, and still likeable in GVK even if the director had no idea what to do with the character.
        Honestly that was the biggest problem with GVK, it was clear they had big ideas for the whole Kong and Hollow Earth plotline, but were lost when it came to how to introduce Godzilla or Mechagodzilla into it. It probably would have been better off just being a King Kong movie.

          No she took up what could have been her father's plot in GvK(he is a far better actor) and the movie was worse off for it.
          It got rid of the monarch cast of the last film, when we could have had the father and the Mothra twin in the lead roles
          She was annoying in KOTM and the film would have been better if it was just a race between the mum and dad for letting the titans out or stopping them from awakening.
          And using their grief over their dead children as their motivations on how to interact with the world of the titans.
          Simple changes in these films make a massive difference in how good they can potentially be

            She was literally the only good character in KOTM besides Serizawa. I agree that her dad should have had the focus in GVK given his role as a top Monarch guy but even then the movie still would have been a mess because the plot involving Godzilla felt tacked on from the get go. With how little thought it was given, frick it might as well just make it about teenage Scooby Doo shenanigans anyway. It meant nothing.

            >she was kino in KOTM
            Yeah.
            >still likeable in GVK

              I will agree to disagree on her in KOTM.
              But I did like her father more in that film, but that is just my opinion.
              But what I do not a agree with is that any character comes close to Serizawa, he was by far the best part of KOTM and the second half of the first film.
              And yeah the Godzilla side of GvK needed a lot more attention given to it, I agree.

          I have no issue with the idea of Legendary having their own distinct Godzilla running alongside Toho with their own distinct Godzilla.

I liked 2014, I liked KotM, and I liked Skull Island, but GvK wasn't very good and this one looks like it's taking everything I hated about it and cranking it up to 11.

            Same, I really liked KotM and was eager to watch the next one, then heard it was going to include Kong and I got skeptical but still had some hope that it would be good.
            Then I watched it and it was so fricking dumb. The whole subplot with that b***h from stranger things, her brownoid male pet and the old frick infiltrating military bases unnoticed was moronic and had no place in the movie.
            The fight on the boat was lame and had no tension, Kong's handler being a deaf 8 years old girl was beyond pathetic, the whole Earth in the center of the Earth (it even had fricking sunlight) was the stupidest origin story they could give Kong and the end fight was just a copy of Batman v Superman's plot.
            Now, somehow, the trailer for the new one looks worse than I could have expected, won't even bother pirating it.

                They have to license Godzilla and all of his characters from Toho. The moment Toho decides to take their toys and go home, the monsterverse is caput. By making Kong the star they future proof themselves from this.

                There's also the fact that the Kong movies just make more money than the Godzilla ones for them.

                Exactly. Having both American and Japanese movies is beneficial for both of them. I'm sure Godzilla vs Kong's popularity helped Minus One do well in American theaters, just like Shin helped renew interest in Godzilla and benefited the Monsterverse.

                It's unlikely to happen soon, because Toho and Legendary renewed their agreement for more movies after Godzilla vs Kong released. There's going to be at least one more.

            But Kong gets the story in both these films and Godzilla just feel like he is there for a ride/be the muscle for thing s Kong can't handle.
            If that makes sense.
            But don't get me wrong I like Kong's character arc GvK and seemingly what it looks like it will expand into in GxK.
            But I also want Godzilla to get the same care given to his character as well.

      I hated GvK but Minus One was kind of dumb and simplistic. Spoiler alert I guess, the characters wouldn't be out of place in a cliched anime from 20 years ago and Godzilla is defeated easily in a lame way. There's barely any Godzilla in it anyway. Did Toho really can Shin Godzilla 2 to make this crap? Which steals elements from Shin Godzilla anyway, like how he regenerates after being damaged and how he grows in size after the opening scene.

        Shin Godzilla's characters felt much more like anime cliches to me than Minus One's. By far the thing I like least about Shin is that it begins with characters that feel somewhat grounded but then as the government reforms all the new staff have to be quirky outsiders. Minus One is still melodramatic and has characters to match if, but it doesn't feel like it just plucked its cast from some random shounen. If Minus One's characters were written like Shin's then the scientist guy would have been some some over the top mad genius instead of just coming across like a normal but smart guy like he does.

        >Godzilla is defeated easily in a lame way
        False, he was defeated after thousands of people died to him and was one of the only realistic “deaths” in the series, and the Will to Live themes only enhanced the kino. I saw it three times in theaters and every single time when the audio pause happened the entire theater was dead silent in awe and anxiety, and all three were packed.
        >There’s barely Godzilla in it anyway.
        There’s more Godzilla than in most movies, and when he IS in there it is quality and a menacing force of nature, not some Le Silly Mean Lizard who pick on Le Steppin Fetchitt Monke.
        >Which steals elements from Shin anyway
        Falss.
        >Like how he regenerates after being damaged
        Literally every Godzilla that ever existed except for 98, I think even Legendary does.
        >and how he grows in size after the opening
        This happens in multiple Godzilla films, see 1984.
        >tl;dr: You’re full of shit and have probably only seen the American movies, Shin, and maybe like 2 Showa movies. I love Shin Godzilla but Minus One is not only Top 3 Godzilla for a good reason but it was the best movie to come out in 2023.

              He was only slightly weaker than a supercharged Godzilla and once he absorbed the power grid He wrecked Godzilla.

              He is currently the strongest antagonist in the series.
              And before you say Godzilla beat him in the water no shit it's his domain.
              And the Antartica fight was right when Ghidorah just woke and had to fight Godzilla but also unknown enemies with projectile weapons, so the safest option for him would be to flee for the time being.
              We just have to wait for the new movie to see where Shimo actually stands.
              I could see her actually being equal to Ghidorah.

    It was described to me that Shimo just creates a regional ice storm over that part of Rio and Godzilla just blasts that away. Not a small feat but not anything Godzilla couldn't have done before. Shimo is mentioned to have started the ice age back in prehistoric times but she's not, like immediately just freezing the whole world over. Takes time.

    Shimo doesn't have much fight moves beyond her frostbite breath/charging and tail smacking. She's big and tanky by the virtue of her size, but she's slow and not really all that threatening. Her frostbite breath isn't really that powerful, Kong is able to hold it off with his BEAST glove for a full minute when he and Godzilla switches opponents for a while.
    Godzilla fights on equal footing with her and is never really overwhelmed in any point of the fight, instead he actually gains the upper hand when he goes full-on glowing pink and unleashes his full energy.

    Skar King is pretty weak, he's clearly shown to be lesser than Kong. He does put up a fight in their first encounter when Kong doesn't have the glove yet, Kong can't just casually curbstomp him, yes, but when Kong gets serious Kong is able to overwhelm him with his superior physique alone and Skar is almost strangled to death with his own whip til he calls for Shimo's help.

      Well that furthers my impression that Shimo is basically just 98 Godzilla with ice powers.

      Apparently he destroy Scylla and Tiamat and fights evenly with Shimo and even gets the upper-hand

    is King Kong too big or Godzilla too small? they shouldn't be the same size

      This movie literally cucks Godzilla in every way for a giant Black person monkey. I wonder how much Toho would let the US humiliate Godzilla before refusing the license? Is there no limit to the depravity they will let him suffer? We will see I guess.

    Don't blame Toho or anyone else. It's just Wingard showing his favoritism. He prefers Kong to be the main character so if he returns Godzilla will be neglected again.

      Gvk and gxk are King Kong movies foremost. Godzilla is just a non character on both movies.

        That's just the director's bias. No one will ever convince me that he's a Godzilla fanboy. He only talks about how he used to watch Godzilla vs. Hedorah when he was a kid. He's such a fake.

          KotM may have had some problems but it was obvious that Michael Dougherty was genuinely a big fan of Godzilla at the very least. I definitely don't get that impression from Wingard.

            Wingard only talks but can't prove it. And on some occasions his mask slips.

    Godzilla is Japanese. Kong is American. Obviously the US film industry was gonna push him.

      Wingard said on couple occassions that Kong being the lead character is his decision. He pretty much said he considers him the main character of the franchise He cares about Kong more than he does about Godzilla and morons are still going "nah dude it's Toho," "the movie was a Kong solo film when they started writing it," "I want Wingard to direct his third movie but this time Godizlla should be the main character."
      You won't see Godzilla being important in any way with this man as the director. When will you morons finally realize it?
