When Legendary Pictures had their shingle at Warner Brothers, they got involved in all manner of the studios properties, such as Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight movies. Now they’ve moved to Universal and are looking into that studio’s back catalogue. Perhaps unsurprisingly they have come up with King Kong.
At Comic Con, Legendary managed to surprise the Hall H audience with a teaser trailer that many apparently initially thought was going to be for Jurassic World, but ending up taking the viewers through a lush, tropical island until they finally meet the star of the show, Kong himself.
The film will be called Skull Island, and will presumably be a prequel set in the place that is Kong’s home. No other story details were released.
During the panel Legendary also announced that in Godzilla 2, the big lizard will fight Mothra, King Ghidorah and Rodan. Now some are wondering if we’ll eventually get Godzilla Vs. Kong.
