A recent rumour has suggested that the Warner Bros. highly-anticipated monster flick, Godzilla vs. Kong may be released on a streaming platform. Fans are naturally divided on this decision as it provides them an avenue to see the film sooner but it also takes away that opportunity of seeing two of film’s biggest monsters duke it out on the big screen.
If not for the ongoing health crisis, Godzilla vs. Kong would have hit cinemas in December 2020. However, considering how some tent pole films such as Mulan, which was released on Disney+ as a premium option, and Wonder Woman 1984, which will be headed to HBO Max in December, we may well see these monsters follow a similar path.
Godzilla vs. Kong is produced by Legendary Pictures and distributed by Warner Bros. The film is not just a direct sequel to Godzilla: King of the Monsters but also a continuation of sorts of Kong: Skull Island. Some reports have surfaced that Netflix is reportedly offering over USD200 million for the film, which is indeed enticing for Legendary.
However, with distribution of the film handled by Warner Bros. there is a high chance that Godzilla vs. Kong may well wind up on HBO Max instead. The film though is now slated for release in end May 2021.
