Kong: Skull Island marches into theaters later this year, but fans are equally as excited to see the King take on the equally deadly Godzilla in their new versus movie. While many details are still unknown about the film, the umbrella they all fall under finally has a name.
Eagle-eyed shoppers have started spotting some of the Kong: Skull Island toys in the wild already, and thanks to those early releases fans now know what this monster-filled universe will be called (via Scified). On the back of one of the boxes the company lists several other sets that shoppers can buy, and underneath that it lists the name they all fall under, the MonsterVerse. You can view the photo below.
Legendary has high hopes for their new universe, and expectations are high that the studio can bring Kong back to prominence just like they did with Godzilla.
Kong: Skull Island reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.
Kong: Skull Island stars Tom Hiddleston (Thor: Ragnarok), Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers), Oscar-winner Brie Larson (Room), John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane) and John C. Reilly (Guardians of the Galaxy). The international ensemble cast also includes Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell and Eugene Cordero.
Kong: Skull Island hits theaters on March 10, 2017. Godzilla 2 is scheduled for March 22, 2018. MonsterVerse is slated for May 29, 2020.
