It has been a long wait but finally, we got our first full look at the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong film. We’ve been anxiously awaiting any sign of life for the project, which was hit by the ongoing pandemic. After countless delays, the film will finally release in just a few months with the first official poster hitting the web around three days ago. The concept of these two titans facing each other has been in development since 2015, as the Monsterverse started to grow out of 2014’s successful reboot of the Western Godzilla franchise. It will serve as the culmination of Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla: King of Monsters. Without further ado, here’s the first official trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong.

The trailer perfectly matches the rest of the franchise and I cannot wait to finally see it once it hits theaters and HBO Max in March. It almost makes Godzilla look like a villain that just randomly started attacking Kong and various cities. It is strange to see him dedicated as this, so they might be using this as a tease for a third enemy that is pushing Godzilla to go on a rampage. We even get glimpses of some unique monsters that will join the fray. Whatever is happening to the nuclear lizard may be connected to why they are bringing in Kong. He might be their weapon to stop Godzilla, who has gone insane after his fight with Ghidorah in King of the Monsters.
It does feel like a culmination for the franchise, as they are referred to as the last remaining monsters. Hopefully, the franchise will continue after this film and continue exploring the titan’s history on this version of Earth. We just recently heard rumblings of a potential spin-off that focuses on Monarch, the secret organization overseeing their activities. I have to say the trailer really sold me on the film and I cannot wait to see these two fight it out once it finally is released in March.
