Fans will have to wait just a little bit longer for the highly anticipated meeting between Godzilla and Kong. As first reported by The Wrap, the release date for Godzilla vs. Kong has been moved from March 13, 2020, to November 20, 8 months later.
The film, directed by Adam Wingard with a screenplay by Terry Rossio will serve as the official crossover between Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Godzilla and Kong franchises. It will star Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, and Jessica Henwick.
Godzilla vs. Kong will serve as the culmination of Legendary’s MonsterVerse which began with 2014’s Godzilla. 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, set decades before Godzilla, included the same Monarch Sciences and featured the familiar roar from the giant kaiju.
This year’s sequel, Godzilla: King of Monsters, received favorable reviews. However, an underperformance at the box office cast doubt over next year’s big crossover. Additionally, fans grew concerned over the film since no sign of marketing materials were released just 4 months before the original release date. Moreover, Warner Bros Chairman Toby Emmerich mentioned a potential pushback earlier this year during a panel.
