Godzilla vs. Kong spoilers follow.

Godzilla vs Kong is out now on HBO Max and the latest MonsterVerse movie was a fun ride in our opinion. It's not without its problems, but as far as blockbuster movies go, it's one of the prettiest we've seen in 2021.

As the dust settles over their epic fight, a few questions remain after the film's final scenes. We imagine you will have your own questions about Godzilla vs Kong, including questions about its ending.

This is where we come in. We are here to answer some of those questions, such as who was crowned the winner of Duo's Battle, how the movie ends, and if there will be any other entries in Legendary's MonsterVerse.

Please note that there are major spoilers for the film after the subtitle below. If you haven't seen Godzilla vs Kong in its entirety yet, please leave this page and come back when you have. Otherwise, you will have the spoiled movie to yourself.

It's a great question to start with, but it's best explained now to provide more context for the section below.

For those unfamiliar, director Adam Wingard told IGN that there will only be one winner in the duo fight. "He's the one who makes the decisions," he said. You don't have to debate it anymore. You watch this movie. It's Godzilla, it's King Kong. They fight… and you win, and that's it.

Godzilla and Kong only crash twice in this movie, which is a bit disappointing for a movie touting this as the ultimate showdown. Either way, despite how the final scenes of the film play out, more than that later on, there is only one clear winner.

It's Godzilla.

Why? Well, because the prehistoric sea monster wins both fights. In the first, Godzilla nearly drowned Kong. But for the US Navy's depth charge dam, it would have been successful as well. Kong returns to his ship and is clearly in no condition to continue fighting. The US Navy entourage even turns off their engines, lights, and weapons to make Godzilla believe that he has won, so that he doesn't come back and finish off Kong.

In the second fight, Godzilla defeats Kong again. Of course, this fight is more balanced thanks to Kong's intelligence and his Hollow Earth ax, but Godzilla still surpasses it. It is the latter who tears Kong apart with his sharp claws and stomps his chest to finally end the contest.

Once again, without humanity's intervention to aid Kong in his hour of need, he would not have survived. It's Dr. Lind who uses one of Apex Cybernetics' HEAV ships to reboot Kong's heart and allows him to help Godzilla defeat the film's true antagonist, which we'll cover next.

At the end of the movie, there is a grudging respect between the two. In our minds, though, it's obvious that Godzilla is the ultimate monster in MonsterVerse no matter what Kong or his fans say.

Adam Wingard's movie may have been heralded as a titanic showdown between the titular pair, but they aren't the only monster in the movie. It turns out that some sections of humanity have not learned their lesson from Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, or Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

What have they done now? Okay, they made a robotic version of Godzilla. You read correctly. Through a combination of cybernetics, one of King Ghidorah's skulls, Apex Cybernetics, and Hollow Earth energy, Apex Cybernetics, the film's antagonist company, created Mechagodzilla.

If you'd like an introduction to who or what Mechagodzilla is, you can find more information in our how-to article on Mechagodzilla. If you only want answers by the end of the movie, read on.

Ultimately, Apex Cybernetics created Mechagodzilla so that humanity would have a way to fight Godzilla if he ever turned against them. It's a silly idea of ​​him, considering Godzilla has left humanity alone since the end of King of the Monsters, but there is always someone looking to take advantage of a situation.

To function properly, Mechagodzilla requires a greater power source than Apex can provide. In short, they are stealing energy from the Hollow Earth to power their creation, and unsurprisingly, things go terribly wrong. Mechagodzilla becomes sentient, thanks to a combination of the Hollow Earth power source and King Ghidorah's lingering consciousness, and begins leveling the Hong Kong base of Apex Cybernetics.

Godzilla, who just defeated Kong, finally meets his rival in the battle that follows. Fueled by the energy of the Hollow Earth and the fury of King Ghidorah, Mechagodzilla immediately takes over his namesake. Godzilla stands no chance against his arsenal of weapons, Hollow Earth energy surges, and metallic shell, so it's no surprise to see Mechagodzilla defeat his counterpart.

However, all is not lost. As we mentioned in the previous section, Kong joins the fight after Jia, the girl Kong has a trusting relationship with, convinces him that Godzilla is not his enemy. By saving Godzilla from certain death, Kong and his former opponent put their differences aside and teamed up to defeat Mechagodzilla.

After a thrilling back-and-forth crash, Godzilla overloads Kong's ax with his nuclear blast and Kong slices off Mchagodzilla's tail. Another blow with the ax and his right arm falls to the ground; oil leaking from the wound on his shoulder.

With Mechagodzilla on his back, Kong continues his assault. A chest swing is followed by the amputation of Mechagodzilla's left arm and right leg, causing him to fall to the ground. Mechagodzilla prepares to unleash a nuclear blast attack, but is stopped by another ax blow from Kong. Kong leaps onto the fallen body of his enemy and rips his head and upper spine apart to finally end Mechagodzilla's reign of terror.

Kong, exhausted, falls to the ground. As humanity celebrates Kong's victory, Godzilla stands up and walks towards the giant ape. Kong grabs his ax and prepares for another fight. To his surprise, Godzilla silently acknowledges that Kong saved his life and seems to offer him respect. In response, Kong drops his ax to defuse the situation.

With the pair knowing where they are, Godzilla swims in the Pacific Ocean. Kong, along with Jia, Dr. Lind, and Dr. Andrews, returns to Hollow Earth, which is now his home.

It is difficult to say. Godzilla vs. Kong's Ending Certainly Leaves the Door Open for Movies In solitary for the pair, but Wingard himself says that any sequel will be dictated by audience demand.

Speaking to DreadCentral ahead of the film's release, Wingard said MonsterVerse is "at a crossroads now. It's really to the point where the public has to go ahead and vote for more of these things. If this movie is a success, obviously they [Warner Bros] will keep moving forward. »

If there are going to be any sequels, they will likely take place in the Hollow Earth. There's still a lot we don't know about this underworld where Titans are supposed to be born. Furthermore, exploring this world would ensure that there is no other repetition of the Warner Bros. formula of "Titans fighting for the fury of the Earth." Hollow Earth gives them creative license to represent Hollow Earth as they see fit, and shows Kong to face threats in his new realm.

As of now, Kong and Godzilla have gone their separate ways, and it's unclear if we'll see them again or the MonsterVerse. It is up to the global public to decide if there are future installments.

Godzilla vs Kong is available now on HBO Max and in theaters in the United States, as well as in theaters in other parts of the world.
