    Both universes will be tied in together. First a Kong reboot, then a Godzilla 2014 sequel, and then Godzilla vs Kong.

    http://deadline.com/2015/10/king-kong-godzilla-warner-bros-legendary-pictures-1201582155/

    As Deadline revealed September 10 when Legendary Pictures moved Skull Island from Universal to Warner Bros, the studio has announced that they are going to launch a new franchise that will be a true clash of the titans. King Kong will share the stage with Godzilla. The property value will be enormous, but this is an important piece for Warner Bros, which has had a tough year launching tentpoles that include last weekend’s washout Pan. Here’s Warner Bros’ press release on the story we told you about last month:

    Following Legendary’s and Warner Bros. Pictures’ 2014 success with the global reinvention of the Godzilla franchise, the companies have come together to create an epic, new shared cinematic franchise. All-powerful monsters become towering heroes for a new generation, revealing a mythology that brings together Godzilla and Legendary’s King Kong in an ecosystem of other giant super-species, both classic and new. Monarch, the human organization that uncovered Godzilla in the 2014 film, will expand their mission across multiple releases.

    The announcement that the reinvention of monsters continues was made today by Legendary CEO, Thomas Tull, and Kevin Tsujihara, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros. The initial trio of films are 2017’s KONG: SKULL ISLAND; GODZILLA 2 in 2018; and then GODZILLA VS. KONG, arriving in theaters in 2020. While Legendary maintains its new home at Universal Pictures, the GODZILLA films remain in partnership with Warner Bros., who will now also distribute KONG as a part of this franchise. Production on KONG: SKULL ISLAND begins October 19th.
    Warner Bros. and Legendary released Godzilla in May 2014 with an agreement to release Godzilla 2 on June 8, 2018. Both films feature the human Monarch organization. Shortly following Legendary’s pact with NBC Universal, Legendary acquired rights to additional classic characters from Toho’s Godzilla universe, including Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah. This paved the way for developing a franchise centered around Monarch and anchored by Godzilla, King Kong, and other famous creatures.

    When Legendary announced films centered on Godzilla and Kong, fans all over the world speculated these two characters might one day meet in the same film. Classic Toho monsters including King Ghidorah, Mothra, and Rodan, as announced at Comic-Con 2014, may also join the Legendary pantheon of giant monster mayhem going forward.

    “Audiences really responded to Godzilla,” stated Tull. “Today, I’m excited to reveal that film was only the beginning of an epic new entertainment universe. As a lifelong fan of these characters, I’ve always wanted to see the ultimate showdown, and today we’re pleased to be announcing that and more.”

    “Working with our partners at Legendary, we enjoyed tremendous creative and commercial success with `Godzilla,’” said Tsujihara. “It’s great to be able to revisit these characters and help create a franchise with so many creative possibilities for filmmakers. Fans love these big, globally iconic films and it doesn’t get any bigger than this.”

    If they are going to do movie mashups, I'd rather Rocky vs. Rambo or Jim Carey and Ben Stiller Meet the AIDS from Philadelphia.

    Any remake is going to suck very hard. I love the original movie (IN JAPANESE not the lame dub version).

    The Godzilla in the movie that just came out was about 40 stories tall. King Kong is probably 40 feet tall. Godzilla can squash King kong like a bug.
