Godzilla and King Kong are now the same exact size in the MonsterVerse as revealed in the first ever Godzilla Vs Kong footage from CCXP. Warner Bros. arrived with a very brief amount of footage. Short though exciting, the first look footage showed the King going into punch Godzilla in the face, and it got the crowd cheering, with the anticipation of what's to come in this big monster brawl.
No one was expecting Warner Bros. to show off anything from Godzilla Vs. Kong at CCXP, so this certainly came as a huge surprise. The footage was shown right before the big Wonder Woman 1984 panel was set to kick off with a livestream. Even though Diana Prince is one of DC Comics favorite superheroes, these two monsters might have just stole the show.
The image shows King Kong going in for a quick punch to Godzilla's face, which proves these two aren't friends. Kong isn't bowing down to the big lizard in this epic battle to end all monster fights. This could be bigger than Avengers: Endgame, with all monsters expected to jump into this melee.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty recently commented about the size of these two iconic beasts going toe-to-toe and what will happen between them. It has been perceived that Godzilla is much larger than King Kong, but their scale has been somewhat adjusted for this upcoming movie. Dougherty says this.
"We're looking at an almost David vs. Goliath situation. Because everyone, the moment you say Godzilla's going to fight Kong, your first reaction is Kong doesn't stand a chance. Godzilla's got his radioactive breath, et cetera, et cetera. But then if you really take the time to look at Kong as a character, it's like, okay, in Skull Island he was an adolescent, so he was still growing. So who knows how big he is since the 1970s when they first met him?"
Watching this footage as it was revealed on the CCXP showroom floor, it looks like this may be an even fight, though Kong doesn't have atomic breath. Godzilla Vs Kong was originally supposed to hit theaters this summer, in May. And a trailer should have been released by now. But instead, Warner Bros., faced with some disappointing box office numbers for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, decided to devote a little more time to making this perfect. Now, we can expect to see these two legends go at it in November 2020, making for one heck of a Thanksgiving run at the movies.
That tiny glimpse of #GodzillavsKong was the best 1 second of my life.— christmas boy alex (@IshaBoiAlex) December 8, 2019
I’m so happy Godzilla and King are like exactly the same height, and uuh...
they weren’t lying when they said they were fighting ON TOP of an aircraft carrier. https://t.co/60q3s4JVJD
