Posted by March 7, 2017 4 Comments

kongskullislandKong: Skull Island is still a few days from its worldwide release date but screenings have been going on since last week and the embargo is up. My review of the movie is right here and it is, overall, pretty positive. There are no spoilers in the review but there is mention that there is a post-credits scene. There are going to be spoilers for who lives through to the end of the movie along with information about the mythology going forward. This was also half spoiled about two weeks ago but this is a description of exactly how the scene plays out.

The scene starts with a black screen and, in a bit of a fourth wall break, James Conrad (Tom Hiddleston) asks “why are we just sitting here in a dark room.” The light comes on to reveal Conrad in a room with Mason Weaver (Brie Larson) in what looks like an interrogation room. They both say that they won’t tell anyone anything and that they just want to go home. Houstin Brooks (Corey Hawkins) and San (Tian Jing) both walk in and sit down. Conrad and Weaver ask Brooks and San what is going on. Brooks goes on to explain that Kong is not the only monster out there. The movie previously explained that there are large holes underground where ancient creatures could live. Brooks says that the world does not belong to humans and that they need to be ready if the monsters should decide to take the world back. He hands them a file and pulls up slides of ancient drawings. They appear to be drawings of Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. The screen cuts to black and we hear the roar of Godzilla from the 2014 movie.

When this information about the credits was released, I speculated that “Is someone going to have a folder of picture and rosters like the end of Suicide Squad? and I was very close. While none of the names of these creatures are mentioned the primitive drawings make it very apparent to monster lovers that these are the Toho classics.

While not revealed in the post-credits scene the issue of size in the King Kong vs Godzilla fight is brought up as Hank Marlow (John C. Reilly). When this was first announced, a lot of fans were confused because this version of Godzilla is massive while this version of Kong appears much smaller. That wouldn’t be much of a fight, but Marlow says that Kong is “still growing”.

So a Kaiju-Verse is happening with more than just Godzilla and King Kong on the horizon. All the scene needed was for Samuel L. Jackson’s Preston Packard to come back from the dead and say “I’m here to talk to you about the Avengers Initiative.”
