    A mildly interesting monster vs. one from one of the most boring movies I have ever seen. Will pass unless Godzilla gives that gorilla a total humiliation. It feels very contrived to have a creature who was wounded by helicopter blades and soldiers be able to go up against a monster who shortly before battled ravagers of entire cities and was hit point blank by shots from naval ships just because the aforementioned creature had a growth spurt. I see no way that Kong's durability can scale properly just because he got a bit bigger, but that's just me.

    Okay, so I finally watched the trailer.

    I think humanity is boned.

    King Kong is going to need some lightning powers to be able to go toe to toe with Godzilla.
    Though to be serious, I think making King Kong as big as Godzilla is kind of a copout. I think it would have been a more interesting change to have King Kong be Hokmuto-sized would have had a whole David vs Goliath angle going on that would have been interesting to watch take place in a city setting. Making them equal size takes away from clever fight choreography that they could of had.

    If they're even making them fight at all, then you know that Kong will get enough of an upgrade to actually hold his own against Godzilla. :p

    So Kong can match up to him in size... now let's see how fire-proof will he be.

    The talks about Kong vs Godzilla have defended Kong being far more faster and maneuverable than Godzilla. As well as being far more intelligent and can use weapons and tools.

    I honestly think we're gonna see Kong do a roundabout on the empire state building and throat punch Godzilla before having a chance to use his atomic breath.

    Man, the mental image that conjures up...

    And in regards to Kong’s durability, could it be possible that now he’s full grown, his hide is much thicker/denser now?

    Most likely. The bigger you get, the stronger your muscles and bones need to be to cope with the increase in weight. Given he's now three times his original size, Kong would gone through a massive increase in density (volume increases more rapidly than surface area), and so he needs to be built like the mother of all brick shithouses to keep from collapsing.

    I would give Kong a slight strength edge and Godzilla a moderate durability edge. The fight would mainly come down to Kong's ability to use tools and Godzilla's Thermonuclear Breath. If Godzilla is able to spam it like he can in some of the Showa movies than Kong could be in trouble. The location also matters for Kong.

    I think it's more likely that a third monster shows up to turn the fight into a fatal three-way. So far both movies have shadow dropped in the trailers that there's more monsters than the top billed ones. A lot of people think it's Destroyah for some reason.

    There were apparently Destroyah eggs in the Kong movie. Didn't see it, but that's what I read.

    I do think you're right in that a third Titan will show up and cause the Godzilla/Kong fight to stop.

    Have Godzilla and Kong fight each other twice, each winning a round. Then have a 3rd monster show up and mess with each of them. Have them team up to defeat the 3rd monster.

    I too think a 3rd monster should be Destroyer. He's the only one who can keep both of them occupied in fights because of his many forms.

    Oh damn how did I not find this thread!? Epic. Fairly moderate Godzilla and Kaiju fan. Very excited for King of the Monsters 2019 and Godzilla vs Kong but still sad that Shin Godzilla 2 was canceled. Favourite kaiju is Jet Jaguar and favourite film is Shin Godzilla with Rodan being a close second.

    Still haven't seen Shin in it's entirety. I just find the design to be utterly repulsive, so the typical monster screentime that I would pay the most attention to is spent rolling my eyes at the horrible design instead. Story is good, but not good enough to make.me want to sit through the whole thing.

    It took me about my third time to love the design. It was on late one night and I decided to watch it. I loved it though. Like I finally understood why people loved it so much. It’s the true successor to the 54 Gojira. Like I just love how they returned to keloid scars as the basis for his skin. And just how ugly and horrible it must be to live like that. I just like that aspect of Godzilla. That he’s just this horrible thing that represents some form of suffering. So I guess I like it because it’s so ugly. And the meaning that it brings. Also I find there’s just some really cool elements to his design. But I won’t in depth go into them until you see it fully. I’d say it’s worth the chance.
