Legendary Pictures' Reportedly to Stage the Rematch of the Century: 'Godzilla vs. King Kong'!!!

Variety is reporting that these two iconic creatures are REALLY REALLY close to having their long-awaited rematch.

Source: ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Moving From Universal to Warner Bros.


Before Cowboys met Aliens, Ninjas, Zombies, or Nazis. Before Aliens took on the Predator. Before Jason fought Freddy. Before the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever happened. The greatest battle of two titans of similar genre cinema occurred in 1962 with Godzilla vs. King Kong. Ever since then, the studio who made the film above, Toho, tried for a sequel several times, but never could hammer down anything due to copyright issues.

Well, the stars might be aligning, and a change is in the wind.  Variety is reporting that Legendary Pictures (the company that produced last year's 2014 Godzilla movie for Warner Bros. and is currently putting together a King Kong prequel with Universal starring Tom Hiddleston for 2017) is in negotiations for the eventuality of a rematch by moving the Kong prequel rights to Warner Bros. so a Giant Dinosaur can take on a Giant Ape. 

Okay, yes it would mean the 2014 Godzilla (plus we still have a 2018 sequel to have too! Along with Toho's 2016 entry!) vs. 2017's King Kong. Of course you know what this reporter thinks of this topic aka the default answer to anything Kaiju or giant monster related movies:

Because they must! What say you though?

As of this moment there's nothing truly anything set in stone other than Variety's sources. But if this comes to fruition, can anyone pass up the greatest grudge-match in cinema history?

And Legendary Pictures, can you just throw in a fire-breathing and saucer-flying giant turtle for good measure?
