While many fans patiently wait for the premiere of Godzilla vs. Kong after multiple delays, we just got our first look at a massive brawl between the two Titans in a brand new image that has made its way online. The crossover event between Legendary's Godzilla and King Kong franchises is finally coming together in May, but we now have a sneak peek of their epic clash. The film has been pushed back multiple times, first from March of this year back to November, and again to 2021 because of the ongoing spread of coronavirus and the COVID-19 pandemic. But now we finally have our first major look at the upcoming event.
Unfortunately, it's the same case with this first look at the actual fight between Godzilla and King Kong in Godzilla vs. Kong. According to @KaijuNewsOutlet on Twitter, the first image of the two Titans squaring off comes from the back of an upcoming line of toys and figures from Playmates to coincide with the upcoming launch of the film.
The merchandise line has presumably been finalized as the film was initially scheduled for a Fall 2020 release, but it's still good to take this image with a grain of salt since it most likely is promotional art for the film rather than an actual image from the film. But until more official artwork or imagery is released, fans are left to pour over images like this. Beware of spoilers, but you can find the image below!

Godzilla vs. Kong will be rated PG-13 when it launches in theaters next May, and the film is described as such, "In a new world where man and monster now coexist, Monarch must lead the way to a prosperous future alongside the Titans, keeping humanity in check. However, rival factions that want to manipulate the Titans for war begin to rise under the guise of a nefarious conspiracy, threatening to wipe out all life on the planet. Meanwhile, on Skull Island, strange seismic activity draws the attention of Godzilla and Kong alike."
