‘Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire’ Unleashes Two New Posters

‘Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire’ Unleashes Two New Posters

Godzilla vs. Kong was a titan of a hit in 2021. Now, two new posters for the follow-up film dropped, hinting at a monster team-up.

Behold! Feast your eyes upon these two posters unveiling the next chapter of the epic Godzilla x Kong saga. Prepare to be mesmerized by the majestic monochromatic portrayal of these colossal titans. On the left, witness Godzilla, reigning supreme with his enormous foot imprint. And on the right, glimpse the ferocious grin of Kong, revealing his formidable set of chompers.

However, this time out the monsterous duo aren’t locking fangs. Recently, the Godzilla x Kong team unveiled a striking third poster that left fans buzzing. The artwork, rendered in vibrant red hues, showcased a mysterious primate titan that resembles Kong.

However, it didn’t take long for monster lovers to realize that this ape-like creature was a fresh addition to the MonsterVerse on the silver screen. This epic poster featured the Scar King, making it his most prominent appearance in the franchise thus far. Reportedly, previous MonsterVerse literature has alluded to the Scar King’s significance, and it appears that this beast will serve as a formidable adversary in Godzilla x Kong.

The New Villian For ‘Godzilla X Kong’ Was Teased Back in April

Indeed, marketing materials for the upcoming film have teased the Scar King’s arrival for some time. Back in April, an image of the new titan was teased alongside the title reveal for the sequel.

Reports suggest the Scar King, an ancient titan, once ruled the Hollow Earth. This formidable beast could mimic others’ powers. However, Godzilla previously confined the Scar King to a specific area within the Hollow Earth. For centuries, the Scar King has prepared for his revenge against Godzilla. Given the events of Godzilla vs Kong, it seems the Scar King may soon resurface to reclaim his power.

Adam Wingard, known for his skillful direction in the first crossover, is set to direct the upcoming film. The sequel will see the return of Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry, with Dan Stevens leading the ensemble cast. The story will explore the budding bromance between Godzilla and Kong as they come together to face the Scar King. They will defy their history as enemies and become comrades in arms.

Of course, it’s a good time to be a Godzilla fan. Apple TV+ is currently airing Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, which explores the history of the Titans. Meanwhile, a new Toho film, Godzilla Minus One, recently dropped and met with positive reviews. Godzilla x Kong will roar into theaters in April of 2024.
