Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Kong: Skull Island released in 2019 and 2017, respectively. Since then Legendary Pictures has been teasing to bring together both monsters for the first time in their shared universe, in their next film Godzilla vs Kong.
New footage has been surfaced on the internet and it appears that the two monsters are barreling towards each other. In the clip, Godzilla can be seen swimming while Kong appears to be in a chain around his neck. The clip also emphasizes the colour palette that shows Godzilla drenched in dark blue and Kong against the bright orange sky. The clip appears to be from footage screened during CCXP. A logo for Godzilla vs. Kong also reportedly released during the screening.
Take a look at the clip below:
