There were big announcements about "Godzilla"
and "King Kong"
at Comic-Con this weekend. There's going to be a "Godzilla 2"
, and three classic monsters from the old days are coming back: Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah.
That's HUGE for Godzilla fans. But it gets even better . . . the people behind it are also doing a "King Kong" movie called "Skull Island". That's the island he comes from, and they showed a brief teaser video that included a shot of Kong.
And since the same studio is making both movies, people are speculating there could eventually be a "King Kong vs. Godzilla" movie.
Some fudging would have to be done though, since the new Godzilla is 350 feet tall . . . while King Kong was, at most, 60 feet tall in his various movies. And in the most recent Peter Jackson remake, he was only 24 feet tall.
Kong and Godzilla did fight once before, in the 1962 Japanese classic "King Kong vs. Godzilla"
. In that one, Kong was increased to about 150 feet tall, with Godzilla being a little taller. And King Kong won.
