It’s official. The King Kong and Godzilla cinematic universe is upon us.
A promotional poster for “Kong: Skull Island” handed out at New York Comic Con hints at a tie between the upcoming film and Gareth Edward’s 2014 “Godzilla” reboot. The poster is a map of Skull Island, home of the impossibly large ape King Kong, that reads “bring the truth to light,” and, boy, does it mean it.
According to some experimentation done by Coming Soon, when exposed to a black light the poster changes completely, showing that Skull Island actually rests on the bones of a massive, ancient monster. A Monarch insignia is also revealed at the top-left of the poster, Monarch being the project which, in “Godzilla,” initially unearthed the bones of a massive creature in the Philippines.
A newly revealed inscription can also be found on the Skull Island poster, which seems to describe Godzilla rather than King Kong: “His mouth is fire; his roar the floodwater; his breath is death. Enlil made him guardian of the Cedar Forest, to frighten off the mortal who would venture there. But who would venture there?”
The King Kong and Godzilla connections are not unprecedented. In 2015, Legendary Pictures announced the two kaiju would share a cinematic universe linked by the Monarch organization. The series will culminate in “Godzilla vs. Kong,” which is slated for release in 2020.
“Kong: Skull Island” is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and stars Brie Larson, Tom Hiddelston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman and Vivienne Taylor. The film premieres in theaters March 10, 2017.
