The offer, allegedly, is for around $200 million, which would most likely cover the budget of the film for Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros, who have a stake and will ultimately decide the picture’s American fate.
HBO Max is another option as Wonder Woman 1984 is landing there come Christmas. However, the fourth installment to the monster saga and, in many ways, the ultimate “Avengers” level team up movie, which Warners has been trying to pull off for nearly a decade now, is set to release May 21, 2021. A time where, hopefully, they will not have to choose between streaming services, but could just release the film on the big screen.
The film is a culmination of six years of films starting in 2014 with Godzilla. Following that was Kong: Skull Island in 2017, which opened the world with an after credit scene. Then finally the 2019 Godzilla: King of Monsters came out to set the final stage for this cumulative film in Godzilla vs. Kong. Seeing the two monsters King Kong and Godzilla coming together to fight. The films all have received mixed to solid reviews.
After the devastating loss that the film industry has taken due to the COVID pandemic it will be interesting to see where 2021 takes Hollywood. Warner Bros and other studios must be prepared to make hard decisions, there are so many movies that are done or filming right now and they cannot just wait until everything is back to normal to get money back for their investment.
As of now, Godzilla vs. Kong is set to release on May 21, 2021.
