Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire roars its way into theaters just a few months from now and Playmates has shared the first wave of action figures (via SFFGazette.com) based on the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong follow-up. 

These appear to be a tad spoilery; for example, we see "Kong with B.E.A.S.T. Glove," suggesting Monarch will supply the iconic Titan with some tech to help him take on the movie's big bad, Skar King. As you can see below, he looks particularly formidable and should be more than a match for the titular duo.

Godzilla, meanwhile, is getting his own upgrade after evolving into a powerful new version of himself. Finally, we have Suko, a character believed to be Kong's son.

During a recent interview with Total Film, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire director Adam Wingard explained why he decided to change the appearance of the sequel's titular duo. "Very specifically in the last film, I wanted Godzilla to have a continuity, to look the way that he had in King of the Monsters and the 2014 Godzilla," the filmmaker said. "But then I didn't get a chance at doing my version of Godzilla."

"So now I wanted to do different things with the spines, and try different colours. I didn't want it to just be random; it's part of the story. And similarly with Kong, I wanted to give him some sort of new look as well. We grew his beard out, and gave him a little bit more grey hair and stuff."

Take a closer look at Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire's Titans in the X post below.

The epic battle continues!  Legendary Pictures' cinematic Monsterverse follows up the explosive showdown of 'Godzilla vs. Kong' with an all-new adventure that pits the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence—and our own. 'Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire' delves further into the histories of these Titans and their origins, as well as the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire stars returning Godzilla vs. Kong actors Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle alongside Dan Stevens (Legion), Alex Ferns (The Batman), and Fala Chen (Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).

The screenplay is by Terry Rossio (Godzilla vs. Kong) and Simon Barrett (You’re Next) and Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight), from a story by Rossio & Wingard & Barrett, based on the character "Godzilla" owned and created by TOHO Co., Ltd.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire rampages into theaters on April 12.

I'm never going to get over the fact they pinked out Godzilla..I'll catch this on a streamer.

And he's an even bigger Kong who's clearly killed a godzilla at some point so its spine can be draped over his shoulder like a sash.

Off topic - In my opinion, Monarch has gotten better during the later half of the season. It’s not top tier TV, but jeez this human story is far more interesting than in any of these Godzilla or Kong movies. Kurt and Wyatt Russell are absolutely the stars of the show! Second shout out to Mari Yamamoto and Anders Holm! The young actors in the 2015 story are still the weak link, but they are doing better than earlier in the season when they were all unlikable and annoying.

@mountainman - glad to hear because episodes 5&6 were absolute ass!

Or maybe 4&5...
mountainman
mountainman - 1/4/2024, 12:26 PM
@EZBeast - I’m guessing 4 & 5. 6 is where it all starts coming together. 7 was May centric and I’m not a huge fan of hers, but it expanded the story a lot at least and the backstory ends up paying off.

@mountainman - I would love for May and the other girl to be crushed by Godzilla or some other titan by the end of the season. I cannot stand those 2 characters...
mountainman
mountainman - 1/4/2024, 1:21 PM
@EZBeast - Kintaro isn’t any better. But they become less dislikable as the season goes on, primarily because their roles become more than just complaining all the time. Still the weak links, just not as bad.

Adam Wingard: “I have an idea for the bad guy in the new Kong/Godzilla movie. His name is ‘Shar-King.”

Audiences: “Cool, is he a big shark?”

Adam Wingard: “… shit.”

Since they’re going pink I wonder if Space Godzilla is next. 🤷‍♂️

@AnthonyVonGeek - Close but not far off the second monster villain of the movie possible or a flashback.

@r1g0r - The little girl will do some sign language and then Kong will say, "Oh ok. I'm down. Let's do this." Then Godzilla will show up, they'll high five each other and race towards danger.

KONG Skull Island > Godzilla 2014, King of Monsters, Godzilla v Kong and probably Godzilla x Kong. Kong needs a true sequel.

That apple show has been ok, some shitty writing at times but the heart is there.

@UniqNo - I like Skull Island a lot, I also really liked King of Monsters, didn't understand the hate on that one.

@soberchimera - It wasn't bad, but i liked the tone set by Edwards in the first, and the sequel changed it a bit.. i understand the new director had his own vision but the change maybe didn't please all. It's watchable though.

We've had serious Godzilla Movie with Minus One, now we get the Fun/Action Godzilla Movie with Godzilla x Kong.

Perfectly balanced, as all things should be

That whole hollow inner earth upside down stuff is so dumb. It's against all basic geology and physics and is a huge reach.
