It makes no sense that they only kept unpopular Zilla cast for this crossover but didn't bring back SLJ from Skull. he has boxoffice value, Zilla noobs don't.

Only 3 people are returning 

 

MBB

Kyle Chandler 

Zhang Ziyi

 

The rest are new people including Alexander “V pack” Skarsgård and Eiza González

In fairness that would be hard to do story-wise..given that Skull Island takes place in the 70's plus his character did get squashed by Kong.

His character died.

I expected a delay. Hopefully it's because the movie needs more time and not because Wingard & co. fucked so many things up along the lines.

LOL, characters die all the time and come back. If you need a boxoffice push by all means resurrect him and kill what's his face that Hollywood is trying to make happen for 10 years now. The nobody that plays MBB's dad. he's in every movie ever and I still don't know his name.

Kyle Chandler is the actor’s name. He was in Peter Jackson’s King Kong.

And the film was set nearly fifty years ago.

LOL, really (PJ's KK)? Ah, yes, I remember the name now. 

 

SLJ playing the son of SLJ? They do that the time.

You're giving SLJ too much credit. Shaft just flopped this year and The Banker is looking to be a stinker for Apple. Very few actors have star power and SLJ isn't one of them.

I agree about star power but he has added value in certain genres which KoM cast obivously doesn't. But I concede that Zilla vs KK is the draw, not whatever no1curr humans are in the movie.

If Skarsgard is shirtless the entire film it will make no less than Tarzan

Matthew McConaughey was available during the time Kyle Chandler was cast. They should’ve gone with him instead.

They need to cast a real superstar. I'm thinking Drake would fit in well.

I think Drake's stopped sugar daddying MBB though considering that she's become a 40 year old now.

I’d be glad if Wingard’s really still attached to the reshoots and not just there for P.R. reasons now while some ghost director takes over. 

 

The guy did The Guest & You’re Next, two genre films I really enjoy (very thrilling films I must add). Blair Witch was meh (but was a case of hopelessly trying to be a remake/reboot/sequel) while I’d argue for Death Note to be more problematic in its approach to begin with (with the producers being responsible for past American J-Horror remakes, multiple screenwriters) and less of the blame being on Wingard’s shoulders. 

 

So while he’s made some misses in mainstream cinema, his original works are enough to convince me that the man has talent that I’d wanna see translated to Godzilla vs Kong.

They showed a shot of Kong and Godzilla fighting in the intro of the Warner Bros panel at CCXP. Don't know if I can post bootleg footage, but it's online.

 

Could they release a teaser today?

Probably not. Too early. They're not going to release the first trailer 11 months before release like they did with GvK. We're probably getting our first trailer at SDCC.
