Yeah I get Godzilla is vastly more superior in size to Kong.
I just don't like the idea of 2 monster creatures stomping cities to rubble...yet again.

I like the imagery & notion of Kong climbing & swinging from skyscrapers not knocking them down. I like the idea of an agile Kong rather than a colossal one.

The mention of Kong still growing really doesn't prove much though, and I outlined why in the CV thread.

And Kong's parents Skeletons weren't any bigger than Kong himself, based on comparison of the size of the bones next people vs the size of Kong next to people. But I digress.

The idea of Kong being much smaller and using his ape agility and intelligence is, to me, far more appealing than another typical "two big monsters crush skyscrapers and step on people" scenario. And I'm glad you agree, it means I'm not crazy for thinking it, lol.

Point is, this Kong is designed with more human-like features, walking upright with longer legs...compared to Jackson's Kong which was literally an oversized Gorilla.

Jackson's Kong is in my top 10 favs list so I'm constantly imagining that version fighting Godzilla.

Having said that, Skull Island was just as awesome so I have every faith that that version of Kong will not be disappointing either.
