For those that have seen the new Godzilla movie, you already understand the Monarch reference and that this makes Goodman’s character the connective tissue between Kong and Godzilla. While Goodman’s Randa calls it his organization, it’s not confirmed whether he is the head of Monarch or just a member. The term M.U.T.O. being used makes this interesting, knowing that this organization has known about massive beasts for decades prior to Godzilla is a neat little tidbit.
Kong: Skull Island is set to release in just a couple of weeks, on March 10th, 2017, followed by Godzilla: King of Monsters in 2019 and the untitled Godzilla Kong battle film in 2020.
Scripted by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Dan Gilroy, and Derek Connolly, and directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the film also stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell, and Eugene Cordero.
