Kong: Skull Island is currently being promoted at New York Comic-Con this weekend and promotional material for the film have confirmed the MONARCH organization will be present! Photos of a unique poster have surfaced online and it features a LANDSAT view of Skull Island, with a cryptic message written on it. Due to the glare of the photos we've currently found, it's difficult to make out what exactly it says, however we have transcribed what we could, below!
Regarding MONARCH, this is the first official acknowledgement of the organization being present in Kong: Skull Island, as you can see the organization's logo on the underside of the poster. MONARCH were the research company present in Gareth Edwards' Godzilla (2014) who studied both Godzilla and the MUTO. It's likely King Kong was the first massive unidentified terrestrial organism discovered by MONARCH, seeing as how Skull Island will act as a semi-prequel / blood relative to Godzilla '14.
The message reads:
His mouth is fire; his roar the floodwater; his breath is death.
Enlil made him guardian of the Cedar Forest,
To frighten off the mortal who would venture there
BUT WHO WOULD VENTURE THERE?
Thanks to Brian Luong on Facebook for the complete message!
Thanks to Reel News Hawaii for the photos!
