Place Your Bets: 'Godzilla vs. Kong' in 2020

The world better get ready to rumble because two monstrous titans are coming to blows in 2020 when Godzilla takes on King Kong in the aptly titled "Godzilla vs. Kong" from Warner Bros. and Legendary.

As reported by Variety, the upcoming throwdown not only unites the two mythic monsters in one film but also brings to culmination the separate franchises that began with 2014's "Godzilla" and continues into the upcoming "Kong: Skull Island" on March 10, 2017 and "Godzilla 2" -- which features alongside with the king lizard Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah -- on June 8, 2018.

"Audiences really responded to Godzilla," said Legendary’s Thomas Tull. "Today, I'm excited to reveal that film was only the beginning of an epic new entertainment universe. As a lifelong fan of these characters, I've always wanted to see the ultimate showdown, and today we're pleased to be announcing that and more."

Kong and Godzilla battled one another way back when in the 1962 film "King Kong vs. Godzilla." Much of the battle final battle between the two wasnt seen and took place underwater and the outcome differed between the Japanese and American releases.

Look for the cinematic rematch -- and official first match of the modern day franchises -- in 2020.
