Whoa, Kong Punches Godzilla In Super-Brief But Badass Godzilla Vs. Kong Footage

King Kong

Hot damn, didn't see this coming. Warner Bros. just showed off some footage at CCXP in Brazil, including a very brief but exciting look at Godzilla Vs Kong. The first Wonder Woman 1984 trailer was expected for later in the panel with the stars, but first the studio showed off what was coming to Brazil later in 2020.

Some of the movies in the Warner Bros. reel have already been released in the U.S. But that shot of Kong going in for a punch to Godzilla? That's coming for all of us in 2020.

You're not supposed to tape the comic-con presentations, so several early videos from Twitter were quickly pulled. But some Godzilla vs Kong fans managed to pull the relevant screen shots:

It wasn't very long footage, and it was sandwiched around other releases coming in 2020. But it was enough of a teaser to get fans pumped for the fourth movie in the MonsterVerse after Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017), and Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019).

The most recent movie, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, disappointed at the box office in comparison to the first movies, but hype seems strong for Godzilla vs. Kong.

Michael Dougherty directed and co-wrote King of the Monsters and also co-wrote Godzilla vs. Kong. A few months ago, he framed this movie as a potential underdog fight, with Godzilla as the Goliath to Kong's David:

We’re looking at an almost David vs. Goliath situation. Because everyone, the moment you say Godzilla’s going to fight Kong, your first reaction is Kong doesn’t stand a chance. Godzilla’s got his radioactive breath, et cetera, et cetera. But then if you really take the time to look at Kong as a character, it’s like, okay, in Skull Island he was an adolescent, so he was still growing. So who knows how big he is since the 1970s when they first met him?

From this first glimpse, they seem pretty evenly matched. At any rate, Kong does not look intimidated.

Godzilla vs. Kong was recently delayed from a May 2020 release to November 20, 2020. Keep up with everything heading to the big screen next year with our 2020 movie release date schedule.
