Because everything needs a cinematic universe, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have announced that Godzilla and King Kong will share one across three movies scheduled to follow the Godzilla flick released in 2014. There will be Kong: Skull Island in 2017, Godzilla 2 in 2018 and finally, Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020, while the press release dangles the possibility of other "famous creatures" joining in. While the idea of giant monsters and robots fighting is hardly new, the prospect of real-life robot combat plus an inevitable slew of spinoff toys, videogames and new effects for these movies has us more than ready. Perhaps it's even time for another Rampage -- does Warner Bros. still own those old Midway trademarks?
