In true fashion to franchise films in 2017, Kong: Skull Island ran one more scene before the lights came up in movie theaters after being released this weekend.
Many fans were aware of the fact that King Kong and Godzilla would be clashing in an upcoming film as the announcement came in 2016, however, every moviegoer who stayed beyond rolling credits of Skull Island is now fully aware of the event coming to the big screen.
When Kong concluded, Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson's James Conrad and Mason Weaver characters were in a holding cell within the Monarch company. It was Corey Hawkins' Houston Brooks character who introduced the other characters and audiences to the Godzilla and King Kong crossover.
On the following slides, we take a look at the Godzilla monsters teased in Kong's post-credits scene - Monsters that we may see in the saga's next chapter, Godzilla: King of Monsters.
Mothra is a fan-favorite among those who root for Godzilla.
Having appear in a dozen titles across various mediums, Mothra is the original flying opponent to Godzilla. She originally introduced the idea of a monster being one of the "good guys." Mothra is always ready to throw down and frequently finds herself involved with fights but, historically, has rarely left too many marks on her opponents.
However, when Mothra dies, she tends to leave some larva behind which can take her place.prevnext
The Charizard-looking monster which was shown in the black and white images at the end of Kong was Godzilla opponent Rodan.
Rodan has appeared in over half of a dozen titles and is a well-received flying monster which resembles a pterodactyl. Rodan has served as an enemy to Godzilla on several occasions but is, quite often, an ally to the scaly one. While Rodan has never been crucial to Godzilla stories, he earns favoritism from his ability to be a supporting role to Godzilla's lead.prevnext
Ghidorah is one of the top ranking Godzilla monsters and was clearly revealed when what looked like a three-headed dragon took the screen during Skull Island's post-credits scene.
Ghidorah is a golden dragon which has appeared in just shy of 10 titles. He is Godzilla best known foe and is considered by most to be his arch-enemy. If being a three-headed golden dragon wasn't enough, Ghidorah ups his appearance game when he becomes "Mecha-King Ghidorah" is the Heisei series.
The addition of Ghidorah to the Kong vs. Godzilla franchise will certainly up the anticipation ranking.prevnext
