It was San Diego Comic Con 2014 and Legendary said they had one more movie to show, many people though it would be a teaser for Jurassic World but instead it was for a new King Kong prequel titled Skull Island. Many were disappointed including myself as I wanted any type of Jurassic Park news which was going to release in a year while this movie was scheduled for 2 years later in 2016. So out of the gate the new movie started with a bad word of mouth as people expected many things including a Pacific Rim sequel.
Since Legendary had the rights to Godzilla many had speculated if perhaps a new Godzilla VS King Kong would be possible and Legendary listened to the bad press and what they wanted. Eventually the movie was postponed and re-scheduled for 2017 and it no longer had Universal involved with Warner Bros replacing them to make the Godzilla crossover happen and reboot King Kong with the Skull Island movie instead of it being a prequel. I may have mixed opinions about Godzilla fighting King Kong again but it’ll be something awesome to see, nevertheless if the original plan had gone through we could’ve gotten something quite awesome.
