Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire’s Ending, Explained

Godzilla X Kong New Empire

When the MonsterVerse first began, fans were a bit divided over the approach. Some didn’t like how Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla movie in 2014 minimized the presence of the giant lizard. But since that, Legendary has been unleashing a bevy of Titans and focused more on action-laced narratives.

Everything culminates in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, where the titular characters have to unite against a scarier threat. This is none other than the Skar King, a giant ape in the Hollow Earth with his own army. The Skar King was sealed away by Godzilla eons ago, but The New Empire’s finale has the villain finding a way to come to the surface and wreak havoc. It builds to an epic, violent conclusion that reminds fans who humanity’s defenders really are.
