All hail the king, King Kong that is. With Godzilla vs Kong slated to begin production, we’ve gotten a slight teaser that there will be changes to the design of the well-known Kong character. Below is an image from Adam Wingard’s Instagram, teasing an “upgrade” for Kong’s appearance the next time we see him. As you can see, the picture warns for those thinking about trespassing to not do so and Wingard commented that what we see is not as “cool” as what we’ll see in the upcoming movie.
“FYI this is not Kong’s new design,” Wingard said. “He looks way cooler than this in the movie.”
Kong is in good hands with Wingard, according to Kong: Skull Island’s director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
“Yeah. He’s got plenty of freedom to sort of play around with how he wants and to play around with … I always joke that my Kong was kind of like a character in a Shane Black movie in the sense that he just gets beat the fuck up by the end of the movie,” Roberts said. “He’s just battered and scarred, and so he’s got that kind of reluctant protagonist vibe to him. I think Adam’s willing to take that anime thing and do what he needs to do as he squares off with Godzilla.”
Before we see Godzilla vs Kong, we’ll be getting another Godzilla movie, Godzilla: King of Monsters. Below is a synopsis:
“The new story follows the heroic efforts of the cryptozoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.”
