. I expect the 2020 film to follow roughly the same pattern as BvS in this sense, hopefully minus the shit editing and unnecessarily weird supervillains.

So Kong is going to kill Godzilla until he hears Mothra?

They also deliberately said ''and he's still growing'', so I guess when we see Kong 45 years older in the crossover film, he'll be even larger. I still think he's going to be small compared to Godzilla.

This article cites the 2014 Godzilla as being 355ft tall (or 108m), whilst the latest Kong is 100ft tall (30m). I doubt they'll make Kong 3x the size if they're going with the explanation that he's still growing naturally, so he'll still likely be half as tall as Godzilla in the 2020 film. I expect the 2020 film to follow roughly the same pattern as BvS in this sense, hopefully minus the shit editing and unnecessarily weird supervillains.

Will Godzilla and Kong both have a mother called "Martha"?

If the two monsters fight I think it's ok for Kong to be a bit smaller - he just needs to be in the same ball park

See my problem is that I enjoyed Pacific Rim and really disliked Godzilla.

If they do a crossover isn't Kong going to be a lot smaller than the 2014 Godzilla? I guess they could have a younger Godzilla or have Kong grow between films but from what2014 i recall from trailers/the movie Kong could pretty much ride on the back of 2014 godzilla

I expect they will be fairly similar in size when the two films eventually come out.

The whole point of Kong's tremendous mountain like size in this film is that he is set in the Godzilla universe. Otherwise the size of him in the King Kong film by Jackson would have been fine. They also mentioned that he is still growing which I guess will be used as an explanation for even greater size in 2020.

Saw the film this weekend. I quite liked it, amusing, worth seeing. Certainly not excellent but the reptiles were a passable antagonist I suppose. This made me do a comparison with the 2005 Peter Jackson films.

  • I think both versions of Kong look awesome, and I like them, but in terms of size I prefer Jackson's Kong. Surely a Kong the size of a house, several times the size of a man, which is what he is in that film, is more than sufficient. 
  • Still, once you get used to his size in this new film, it's not an irritant. But it feels a lot stranger than 2005 Kong. I also feel that character was more expressive.
  • What brought the 2005 film down was that awful first hour of introduction. Once that is over it's a fine film to watch, but that is one of the slowest intros I can recall. Mercifully this one doesn't have that.
  • I do think this film lacks the real set pieces like the fight against theT-rexes in the 2005 film.

I saw this a couple weeks ago and left thinking it was a decent monster movie. And yes there are some stupid character/plot decisions but that seems normal.

If Godzilla was 300'+ as referenced earlier, and he fought this 100' Kong it would be unfair, especially since Godzilla breathes fire! So Kong will have to get bigger, so 200' Kong vs 350' Godzilla? My question then becomes how does Kong get off Skull island to fight? Do they tie him down to the top of an aircraft carrier? Doubtful there is a ship with a large enough opening to put him into, not to mention how do you pick him up? You can't assume he just leaves the island on his own since he can't breathe underwater or swim like Godzilla? I mean I guess if there are giant monsters then an giant ship with an opening big enough for a 200' tall and 75'-100' wide Kong can fit in. Thoughts?

I suppose Godzilla could go to Skull Island. Alternatively, the Monarch scientists spent a lot of time talking about their 'hollow Earth' theory, maybe there are some really huge caverns below Skull Island that lead from it to some other landmass.

Yeah, that's a very good point about the hollow Earth theory. I'm sure that'll play a key role in the two meeting. I think we'll see older versions of the young Monarch scientists from the coda scene in this next film, which I think everyone is just assuming will be called Kong v Godzilla. And you know they'll have one meh fight in the film then team up to fight skull crawlers or a swarm of Mothras or whatever. Regardless, if they stay on track with this third film the way they did the other two then it'll be awesome.
