Godzilla vs. Kong, also known by the working title of "Apex" is an upcoming American science fiction monster film produced by Legendary Pictures, and the fourth entry in the MonsterVerse, following 2019's Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It acts as a sequel to both King of the Monsters and Kong: Skull Island, and it will be released to American theaters on May 21, 2021.
Godzilla vs. Kong is being directed by Adam Wingard, produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod, and Brian Rogers, with the screenplay written by Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein, from a story by Terry Rossio, Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields. Borenstein, Dougherty and Shields also wrote King of the Monsters. The film is slated to continue where King of the Monsters leaves off, and will see Godzilla and Kong meeting and battling each other.
In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, off of the face of the earth forever.

On October 14, it was officially announced that Legendary Pictures will be remaking King Kong vs. Godzilla. The project had been rumored ever since Legendary acquired the rights to King Kong and announced Kong: Skull Island in 2014, and the rumors have become even more prominent after the project was moved from Universal Pictures to Warner Bros.
On September 10, Legendary announced its plans to create a shared cinematic universe featuring both Godzilla and King Kong, as well as other giant monsters including Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. Legendary's Godzilla was the first entry in this universe, followed by Kong: Skull Island in 2017 and the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019, culminating in Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020.
On May 10, it was revealed that Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong had gotten new release dates of March 22, 2019, and May 29, 2020.
On March 10, it was revealed that the film's writer's room had been established, consisting of Patrick McKay, J.D. Payne, Lindsey Beer, Cat Vasko, T.S. Nowlin, Jack Paglen, and J. Michael Straczynski, under the direction of screenwriter Terry Rossio. The writers have been tasked with creating and thinking of the best basic ideas and beats for the script until a writer is hired to properly write it out.
During San Diego Comic-Con, an interview with IGN and Adam Wingard took place. The director spoke on how he felt Kong: Skull Island gave him an "easy way out" with explaining Kong's size change in the upcoming film, but acknowledged how they were aware of the issues involving the plot point. Also, upon being asked about how monster films tend to deal with figurative and tonal shades of gray, Adam brought up the idea of how easy it is to demonize Godzilla while going on to express how he has emotional attachments to both monsters. Godzilla vs. Kong was once again confirmed to still be on track for a 2020 release during the interview.
In August, another interview took place with Adam. Much of the subject matter remained the same as his SDCC interview, with Wingard reiterating that he wants there to be an emotional drive to the film while expressing how he wants "people to really be teary-eyed at the end of the movie". Adam also revealed that Godzilla and Kong won't be the only monsters in the film, calling it "a massive monster brawl movie".
Shortly following the prior interview in August, director Adam Wingard was then interviewed by Entertainment Weekly, and went on to speak about how the film will have a definitive winner, in light of the decades-long debates over King Kong vs. Godzilla's ending. Shortly afterward, during an interview with Slashfilm, Adam Wingard revealed that Godzilla vs. Kong will take place in the present-day and feature some characters from Godzilla: King of the Monsters. He also teased a "more rugged, a bit more aged" Kong in the film.
|“|| Talking to Adam made me so happy because he, in particular, really understands the kind of anime, manga, mech sensibility that I was trying to bring to Kong. He gets that and that was something that I fought so hard for and was so difficult to sort of realize to life through concept to execution with ILM [Industrial Light and Magic.] That’s one of the things I’m most proud of with him. I think he truly gets that and he truly wants to lean into this version of Kong that kind of was born from my crazy and stupid video game brain.|
Yeah. He’s got plenty of freedom to sort of play around with how he wants and to play around with … I always joke that my Kong was kind of like a character in a Shane Black movie in the sense that he just gets beat the fuck up by the end of the movie. He’s just battered and scarred, and so he’s got that kind of reluctant protagonist vibe to him. I think Adam’s willing to take that anime thing and do what he needs to do as he squares off with Godzilla.
— Jordan Vogt-Roberts

|“||He’s not an alpha, bad-ass hero, which I thought was quite interesting. He is thrown into this very dangerous situation and is definitely not equipped for it and that makes it a bit more interesting in my opinion than had he been a bad-ass dude. He’s just a tiny, tiny human trying to survive between these two behemoths.||„|
— Alexander Skarsgård

On May 5, in the June issue of SFX Magazine, Michael Dougherty spoke briefly about writing for both Godzilla and Kong and how they are different.
|“||Because Kong is a little close to human - he's a primate, as we are - he's allowed to show a slightly larger range of emotions. We expect those very unique, and even warm, bonding moments between Kong and human beings. That goes back to the 1933 film, where he was never strictly a monster; there was always a very human side to him in the ways that he interacts with us. That was a joy to write. With Godzilla, that's not expected. That's not to say that you can't do it, but any kind of bond between Godzilla and humans has usually been more implied. So you rarely get to see Godzilla's softer side.||„|
— Michael Dougherty
|“||I like the idea of going back in time, and telling creature stories from different eras. Skull Island was set in the 70's, but personally I'd like to do GODZILLA-BC, go back to ancient times and really see the Ray Harryhausen-esque world where primitive humans had to try to survive with these creatures. Maybe we'd get to see the first time mankind truly encountered Godzilla, and get to see how that relationship was christened.||„|
— Michael Dougherty
On May 27, in an interview with Bloody-Disgusting, Dougherty gave his explanation of how and why Godzilla and Kong would come to blows. He calls it reminiscent of an underdog battle, comparing it to David vs. Goliath and the fight between Rocky and Ivan Drago in Rocky IV, where Kong is easily seen as the underdog but might have some surprises being an intelligent primate who can use tools and has his speed and agility. Dougherty added it's a primal part of the human species that enjoys watching animals fight each other as the gods depicted in mythology, and that Godzilla and Kong fighting each other is destined to happen as Kong is partially what originally inspired the creation of Godzilla.
|“||The hope is that their motivations for fighting each other are sound, and not contrived. But when you have two extremely hyper-aggressive masculine territorial animals who both believe that they’re the rightful rulers of an entire species, chances are they’re going to do more than have afternoon tea.||„|
— Michael Dougherty
On May 30, the first official promotional graphic for the film appeared online after being revealed at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo with the tagline "One will fall".
On October 18, in an interview for The New York Times, Alexander Skarsgård revealed that his character is a geologist who works closely with Kong.
On October 24 and the 30th in interviews, Skarsgård revealed some more details about his character and why he joined the film. Skarsgård cited the reasons as getting the chance to work with Adam Wingard, wanting to play a different type of character in a film with a different tone compared to many of his past roles, and since he finds the protagonists of "big, action films" fairly boring. He also revealed that Wingard and Legendary's creative team being open to rewriting his character to suit him with his own input is what sealed the deal, and during production, Skarsgård was free to explore the humanity of his unlikely hero character and make him appealing enough for audiences to become invested in.
|“||He’s a good guy and a likable guy, which I was quite ready to play after row of dark characters, but he’s also not boring... What I liked about it is that he’s a reluctant hero. He’s a geologist, who’s not tough, or brave, or an ex-Marine, or a cool, strong leader. He’s nervous and uncomfortable, and he’s thrown into this crazy world that he’s not equipped to deal with.||„|
— Alexanders Skarsgård
On October 31, in an interview with Collider, Eiza González revealed the first details about her character, stating that she plays a slightly comedic character in the form of "a very smart woman behind a company" the audience will encounter throughout the film.
On November 5, a video was uploaded by Gormaru Island featuring bits from brief interviews with some Godzilla vs. Kong cast members including Julian Dennison, Lance Reddick, Brian Tyree Henry, and Millie Bobby Brown while the film was in production. A new piece of information was revealed by Brown, stating that Madison Russell's journey in the film involves her deciding whether she will be "Team Kong," "Team Godzilla," or both of them.
On November 25th, it was announced Godzilla vs. Kong would be delayed eight months and be released on November 20, 2020.
On January 17, 2020, Adam Wingard revealed on Instagram that Godzilla vs. Kong was "on the home stretch of editorial", with a few months left until the film will be completed.
On February 19, a listing appeared on Amazon for The Art of Godzilla vs. Kong, revealing the artbook will be available on November 17th, three days before the film's release. The following day, Legendary Pictures and Toho revealed licensees that would handle the film's merchandise, including Playmates, Bioworld, Rubies, Funko, and The Virtual Reality Company (VRC), while Legendary Comics will head the publishing program. An image reportedly taken from the upcoming New York City Toy Fair also appeared online, depicting Godzilla with slightly redesigned dorsal fins. At the end of the month on the 28th, it was revealed that Warner Bros. had an unannounced test screening for the film the previous day, and the footage received very positive reception.
On March 16, Eiza González revealed the film only had brief reshoots that took place over a few days, dismissing previous rumors of extensive reshoots, and that the heart of film's human element centered on "two young girls."
On April 14th, during an interview with Rebecca Hall, she revealed Godzilla vs. Kong was the first film she did after having a baby, and that she brought her baby with her to Hawaii and Australia during filming and "imagining King Kong and Godzilla" in the jungles.
On May 10, a listing appeared on Amazon for a children's book based on the film, titled Godzilla vs. Kong: Sometimes Friends Fight (But They Always Make up After), scheduled for release on October 20th.
During the Wondercon@Home 2020 event on May 20, the Legendary Comics: MonsterVerse panel revealed the first details for the upcoming graphic novels, art book, and a picture book centered on Kong, featuring teaser images from the graphic novels. After it was revealed that Godzilla and Kong would get separate prequel novels, it was said the Godzilla novel would be told from Godzilla's point of view and explore his character, mainly Godzilla's protective heroic side. For the Kong graphic novel, Kong's adult design was revealed with a new look at Camazotz. The novel would not only feature the return of Houston Brooks but also focus on a new female fighter pilot character, who writer Maria Anello describes as "a woman who is struggling with a lot of baggage. A character who is both a very fierce pilot and someone who is also very vulnerable." After returning artist Zid talked about how he designed Camazotz, Anello revealed new details about Kong's new foe representing the element of darkness and being the embodiment of nightmares, similar to how Rodan and Ghidorah respectfully represent fire and electricity.
On June 3, the MPAA officially rated Godzilla vs. Kong PG-13 for "intense sequences of creature violence/destruction and brief language". Director Adam Wingard then tweeted in response to this, stating, "That's an understatement."
On June 12, Adam Wingard announced via Instagram that the film’s release date has been postponed to May 21, 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film takes the date that was originally scheduled for Matrix 4, which in turn was moved to April 1, 2022.
On July 6, the titles of the prequel graphic comics were revealed online as GvK: Godzilla Dominion and GvK: Kingdom Kong. Their synopses were also revealed, with the summary for Kingdom Kong revealing Audrey as the name of the female pilot protagonist mentioned during Wondercon@Home event. Both comics have the release date of March 31, 2021.
On July 19, fans were given a sneak peek of Godzilla and Kong battling atop an aircraft carrier in a leaked image from Playmates Toys' figure packaging.
