Legendary Pictures is apparently all about the info bombs at this year’s Comic Con, as they’ve just announced the return of King Kong in a Skull Island movie! Yes, the stars are already aligning for a King Kong/Godzilla rematch, aren’t they?
Legendary previewed some ambiguous teaser footage at their SDCC ’14 panel, which wound up being a teaser for a Skull Island movie, set to showcase the return of King Kong.
While it doesn’t take a genius to see what Legendary Pictures is planning to do with all these resurrected monster franchises, King Kong has always been near and dear to my heart. I’ve even got nostalgia for King Kong vs. Godzilla, as it was one of the first films in the Godzilla series that I saw. The prospect of another knock-down, drag-out brawl between these two cinematic titans makes me smile.
Of course, Godzilla was distributed by Warner Bros., and Skull Island will presumably come from Universal. How will this affect things? Stay tuned!
