"Kong: Skull Island" has received numerous and various feedback from fans all over the globe, with the majority of it positive reviews. The new monster reboot is said to be more than just the continuity of a legacy, but the start of another in the cinematic universe. Some spoilers may be witnessed.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Kong: Skull Island" is said to mark the dawning of a "monster-verse," which will highlight not just the gargantuan ape, but also the other monstrosities that could have existed in the same era. This primarily points to the previously released 2014 movie "Godzilla," one which many expect to have more than one installment. This was, indeed, confirmed, with 2020 being the year to mark for these two monsters to clash.
Other justifiable feats claim that they will not be the only ones to exist in the coming universe. As per Screen Rant, the post-credit scene of "Kong: Skull Island" is the biggest spill in the future of the franchise-leaking Mothra, King Ghidora and of course, Godzilla. It was also mentioned that despite Kong being believed to be "King," he is not the only king around, pointing to the other kaiju-esque creatures to come.
Other clues include the photos taken in the film, which were requested to be kept hidden. While the expedition was merely to prove the existence of monsters, a concealment of information took place after all that transpired, which could be essential to the impending clash of monsters. Lastly, the tease of Kong continuing to grow much bigger at present, being more than a hundred feet tall, shows that there is still a higher tendency for the big ape to be competent to the other freakishly huge movie mutations, with Godzilla being eyed as the primary opposition.
"Kong: Skull Island" turns slightly away from the conventional plot of a creature falling head over heels with a human girl, being shot down by aircraft and plummeting down to his death. For now, fans will have to wait a few years before the awaited gladiator battle ensues.
