Generally, shameless corporate promotions are the realm of Fortnite. You haven’t truly made it until your parent company shells out millions of dollars to have a skin of your main character shoved into a battle royale. So when we heard Godzilla and King Kong would soon make guest appearances in a video game, Fortnite is where we assumed they’d show up. Not this time…the movie monsters are headed to Call of Duty!
Putting the worlds of Godzilla and Power Rangers together is such an obvious idea that we find it hard to believe no one’s ever done it before. Both come from Japan, both involve giant monsters wrecking buildings, both are about larger-than-life battles and explosions. IDW will finally marry these two concepts in Godzilla Vs. Power Rangers, their upcoming five-issue miniseries.

Godzilla vs. King kong lost its chances to be a box office giant because of Covid 19. Dreams of this film having worldwide cinematic glory is all gone. This crossover Kaiju film is actually a remake of a 1962 Japanese movie King Kong vs Godzilla. That Kaiju battle is a classic but seeing it in modern special effects would be an interesting spectacle.
When you’re a kid, you learn that if you overfeed a fish, you wind up killing it. Clearly, nobody in charge of the major movie studios owned a fish, so they had to learn this lesson the hard way.
Like death and taxes, trailers at San Diego Comic Con is inevitable. WB Pictures didn’t disappoint at their panel by showing four trailers for four highly anticipated films. However they have a lot of work to do to win back DC fans after the streak of mixed DCEU films.
Despite some stumbles in the past, both Godzilla and King Kong have had financial success in their most recent movies in the US and around the world. So, not surprisingly, we’re going to be getting a film that’ll put them against each other in Godzilla vs. King Kong. The film will be directed by Adam Wingard, who was at SDCC, and talked to IGN about the pleasures and wonders of making this film.
