Godzilla: King of the Monsters may be one of the most anticipated releases of the year, but fans are looking even farther into the future for what could be the biggest monster fight in Legendary's Monsterverse quadrilogy, Godzilla vs. Kong.
One artist is helping hype up this huge match between titans with a neat fan poster calculating the odds for each kaiju going into the fight. You can check it out below.

Drawing reference sheet part 2, sized for final battle. Not predicting anything official, this is for my own referencing for separate fan fiction. Monsterverse weird tales, whacked out shocking stuff the movies probably wouldn’t responsibly decide upon. Character wise, Godzilla on par with an unstoppable Terminator/ Superman, Kong as the more resourceful cunning Kyle Reese/ Batman. More ideas as it goes. The core concept that it’s not so much about winning as it is the journey towards making a god bleed, and the terrible ramifications that would cause. It’s doomsday fantasy stuff, with the battle of Godzilla/Kong being the second act peak before the fall.
Artist @bill.b.couture on Instagram shared the above infographic as a fun exercise. He doesn't make an official choice as to which way this fight will go, but gives fans enough details here to imagine just how the fight will go between the two Titans. Notably, his take on Godzilla is that the Monsterverse version is "virtually indestructible" and seems to have a lot more advantages its bringing to the fight such as size and power.
But he doesn't count Kong out either. It's got its own share of advantages such as its youth, intelligence (which was shown off during Kong: Skull Island with the use of weapons, and movement ability. While Kong might not be as invincible as Godzilla, it seems the concept Couture imagines is that Kong will be able to damage Godzilla's pride through the fight. Fans wouldn't mind if the two Kaiju come to a begrudging respect, especially if it's the result of an epic fight.
