Who Will Win? Cinematic History May Hold the Answer

If you consider yourself a Baby Boomer or one of the Generation X crowd and you take pencants to the B movies, then you have no doubt that Godzilla, Kong and the rest of the Toho Studios grew up in the Pantheon of Monsters. No other entertainment property was as fun for a child on Saturday morning as watching the poor, helpless city of Japan from year to year after watching our favorite kaiju.

But many times it is forgotten that King Kong came first. An original by Radio Pictures in 1933, an American production starring Bruce Cabot and Fay Ray, Raymond Burr inspired the Godzilla classic for over two decades and for you fans of ‘Team Kong’, the original King Kong Rotten Tomatoes was ranked as the fourth biggest horror film of all time. Not bad for what was actually a romantic adventure film.

However, Toho went on to succeed the 1954 original Godzilla and parted with it, making 32 films over the next 64 years, with the last four during Japan’s Reva era that debuted in 2016.

In the early years of the original monastery, Godzilla and Kong clashed for the first and only time. The year was 1963 and to date, this Titanic clash is the most included in the Godzilla film in Japanese history. Being successful, Toho Studios and US-based production company Rankin / Bass, followed with King Kong survived It was 1967 where viewers saw McKeny-Kong’s talent that Kong fought and lost. Interesting, in the giant octopus scene King Kong survived It was later referenced by filmmakers after 39 years Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest For inspiration of Kraken’s movement. They say that imitation is the most honest form of flattery… well, there you go. You can never watch this scene again.

Toh Studios completed 60 years in 1992 and to honor this legacy, they wanted to put a rematch on the big screen between Godzilla and Kong, but did not own Kong’s rights, so they decided to use one Developed the idea of ​​a new version of Maxi-Kong. Again, fearing that they could not even gain image rights for the giant gorilla, Mekhagodzilla (or was chosen instead to use the idea of ​​Mexi-Kong to inspire the creation of the super-Mehagodzilla) resulted in Monster of 1993, Rome Godzilla vs Mekhagodzilla II.

in the original King Kong vs Godzilla The two giants lost to Kong soon after. Later in the film, in a later fight, his power boosts due to lightning, with Kong gaining the upper hand over his reptile rival. In the final confrontation, the two fall off a cliff and only Kong emerges to fight underwater as he appears to return home to the island of Phar … Godzilla is nowhere to be seen. Fans debated for the years that actually won the fight, but in subsequent decades, even Toh Studios admitted that Hong Kong won. It is important to understand that at that time, Kong was treated as an anti-hero because he had a special connection to humans and in a way was trustworthy to the audience. opposite of this, Godzilla Was still seen as a villain in Japan and was not seen as an accessory to mankind until later films. But will the same be true today?

Let’s examine the possibility a little more. The Godzilla vs. Kang trailer footage of the upcoming show is likely to have boarded an aircraft carrier. Later shots show Kong in a weak cargo ship with a weak cargo ship likely to lose the initial battle. We then see a secondary encounter where Kong appears to be gaining the upper hand with the help of a ‘battle ax’, which also appears to have qualities that can counter Godzilla’s atomic breath. It is usually out in the same style as the original with Synopsis losing the original encounter but eventually winning in the final confrontation.

Additionally, the film poster Godzilla vs Kang It says, ‘One will fall.’ This may be simple wrongdoing and marketing hype, but it is plausible if, for example, Godzilla leaves a legacy behind. There has been speculation that Godzilla is banned from dying in the contract signed with Toho unless he has an inherited child in the movies. Interestingly, a post-credit scene from Godzilla: King of the Monsters shows us a newspaper featuring a giant egg clipping found by Monarch.

The giant egg found by Monarch - Godzilla vs Kang

By reading the caption, the evidence is pointing to something else.

Godzilla is also a strong example for offspring in the film canon. The first sight of a baby godzilla was in 1967 Son of godzilla Where his son, named Minilla, took the form of an egg. Even more ironically, another iteration of Godzilla’s son came out of an egg mentioned earlier Godzilla vs Mekhagodzilla II In 1993. This offspring was slightly more than the original in comparison to the physical characteristics of his current father, but both of these films clearly set up the possibility that we might yet see a baby godzilla in the upcoming Clobberfest, making King Kong the final Will be able to win fight.

In addition, a quick overview of the toy site BigBadToyStore shows the two last toy releases with no pictures and is cited as ‘Godzilla Little’ and ‘Godzilla Minira’. Minira is the Japanese name for the original Junior Kaiju from the 1967 film. These facts are too specific to be coincidental.

Another theory states that Godzilla will die in a joint attack of King Kong and Mehagodzilla, which is also set to make a modern appearance for the first time in the Godzilla epic. This monster saga goes full circle with the addition of Mekhagodzilla with its historical predecessors. The result certainly has important implications going forward.

Real Kong vs Godzilla The classic, looking far beyond our minds and joys, produced many references in pop culture to include the music industry, advertising, board games, and even once was spoiled by The Simpsons .
