So far at San Diego Comic Con, we've seen a geriatric Crow fan crash a wrestling toy panel, we've seen the first images of some Greek chick who gets off on a leather clad Batfreak and an alien fighting over her, and we've heard that Legendary pictures is moving forward with a sequel to some movie about a lizard.
But, saving the best for the last, Legendary closed out their panel with the biggest news of the convention: the cinematic return of the Great Ape himself, KING KONG!
Last seen (allegedly) in the 2005 twelve hour Peter Jackson documentary, "Ain't CGI Grand", Kong retired back to his Island home in despair after realizing that he'd just spent twelve hours with Jack Black. It's been nine years, but the poor Ape has finally re-entered the public eye, starring in a new film called SKULL ISLAND, scheduled to premiere in November of 2016.
Most intriguingly, this news means that the film rights to King Kong and Godzilla are now owned by the same company, opening the door for a rematch of their big 1962 slugfest. Which, we hasten to point out, was won handily by Kong.
