Warning: SPOILERS for Godzilla: King of the Monsters ahead!
This year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters was a battle royal of sorts, exchanging the slow build of 2014’s Godzilla for a free-for-all, where multiple Titans all battled for dominance and the right to be called king. As exciting as that was, everyone knows that the main event Warner Bros. and Legendary’s MonsterVerse is building towards is 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong. A funny new video for King of the Monsters pokes fun at that coming battle. Check it out:
It was notable that King Kong did not show up at the end of Godzilla: King of the Monsters when Godzilla defeated King Ghidorah and called all Titans to him to swear fealty. The novelization for the film reveals that Kong hears the call, he just doesn’t answer and never has. He’s simply not interested. This video from How It Should Have Ended posits another possible ending to King of the Monsters, one that shows the real reason Kong may have flaked out of this meeting.
This hilarious ending would have teased the impending battle between Godzilla and Kong and poked fun at what a mismatch all reasonable observers believe it will be, until they ultimately power Kong up in some way, of course. If Kong had answered Godzilla’s call, he might have wanted to challenge Godzilla for the throne right then and there. However, the solitary Titan who styles himself King would have quickly thought better of it.
To begin with, Godzilla is bigger than Kong and he has atomic breath. He can put Kong out of service from a distance without getting in range of the monkey’s hammering fists. Godzilla: King of the Monsters introduced Fire Godzilla, another power where Godzilla glows red and burns everything around him. In this state, he can also emit nuclear pulses. In this ending, those nuclear pulses would have dissuaded the furry and highly flammable Kong from challenging Godzilla or taking part in the Titan pow wow.
I love how Godzilla raises an eyebrow, Dwayne Johnson style, just before emiting the nuclear pulse. When King Kong slowly exits like Homer Simpson disappearing into a bush, Godzilla nods his head like ‘Damn right, you better walk away.’ King Kong is going to need a Pokémon-esque evolution, a Super Saiyan transformation or a seriously skilled hype man to convince people he stands a chance against the true king of the monsters.
This video also goes in on some of the other things in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, making fun of them in hilarious fashion. The desire of Ken Watanabe’s Dr. Ishiro Serizawa to die (after saying goodbye to Godzilla) is great, as is the flying Titans making fun of Godzilla for not being able to fly. The best part, though, is how this video makes fun of Vera Farmiga’s character Dr. Emma Russell, who throughout the film displayed stupidity bordering on insanity, or just insanity weaponized by extreme stupidity.
Godzilla vs. Kong dukes it out in theaters on March 13, 2020. Check out our 2019 Release Schedule to see what this year still has in store and for the latest in movie news, stay tuned to CinemaBlend.
