Kong: Skull Island movie news, trailers and cast

Kong: Skull Island March 10th, 2017

Learn More

A term used by fans for some time now, the name for Legendary Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures and Universal Pictures' joint shared cinematic Monster universe, which includes Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong is now officially known as the MonsterVerse! The name was discovered on the backside of the new Kong: Skull Island toy merchandise packaging - which encourages fans to collect all the available creature packs, which we reported on earlier this month.

Despite the unfortunate departure of Thomas Tull from Legendary Pictures and contrary to fan doubts and worries associated with that decision, the upcoming Godzilla sequel "King of Monsters" (slated for March 22nd, 2019) and the planned Godzilla vs. Kong film in 2020 are still happening.

Thanks to Gormaru Island for the find!

AWESOME!!!!!!!!  I love it!  I am so pumped for this universe to continue, its the one Cinematic Universe I've always wanted, but never thought possible in Hollywood.  What a time to be alive, my friends.

By the way, I have to thank you for posting this, Chris!  After I saw this, I left work and went straight to Walmart to see if, by some miracle, they had any Kong stuff out on shelves yet.

And OH BOY YES!  YES THEY DID!

I got the big Kong, and the three Creature Encounter packs that include monsters!  I'm not chomping at the bit to get the boat and helicopter, but in one night (and for a whopping 50% OFF MSRP!!!!), I got figures of Kong, a Skull Crawler, the Giant Spider, and the Pteradactylus!  I'm so happy, its like 2014 all over again!

Now, if they would only make a bigger Skull Crawler, the Log Bug Guy, the Giant Octopus, and the Giant Water Buffalo, I'd be in business!

I wonder if there will be some non Godzilla/ King Kong monsters will appear in these movies. Like the beast from 20.000 fathoms.
