So, where does John Wick: Chapter 3 go from here? I say a crossover. Hear me out. Who doesn’t love a good heavyweight bout between familiar characters? Freddy Vs. Jason! King Kong Vs. Godzilla!

What’s more is that the King Kong reboot will eventually connect to the rebooted Godzilla franchise, which will continue with Godzilla: King of Monsters in 2019, and culminate with King Kong vs. Godzilla in 2020. So we’ll have plenty of huge monsters terrorize themselves and other people for the rest of this decade. Isn’t that nice? As Kong: Skull Island is getting closer to its release reporter Kellvin Chavez of Splash Report has a little extra information for fans about the monster flick.
