The Godzilla vs Kong prequel comic has teases the return of Dr. Houston Brooks.
The Godzilla vs Kong prequel comic just keeps on giving! Late last month, the prequel comic gave us a cool new look at an adult King Kong who was rocking a beard. Now, the comic has revealed to us that Dr. Houston Brooks will be making some sort of appearance in the larger story. ComicBook.com revealed that the prequel comic has has a subplot that reveals Dr. Brooks’ son led an expedition to Skull Island, only to be stranded after his team was killed by the island’s treacherous creatures.
In case your memory isn’t up to speed, a young Dr. Houston Brooks first appeared in Kong: Skull Island and was played by Corey Hawkins. After being part of the first expedition to survey the island, Dr. Brooks joined the Monarch organization. Joe Morton later took on the role of Dr. Brooks for last year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. While he was only briefly seen in the Godzilla picture, his appearance served as the perfect bridge for the character and the shared universe as a whole.
Seeing as Godzilla vs Kong will see us returning to Skull Island, as per the new synopsis (which you can see below), it isn’t hard to imagine the film somehow tying Dr. Brooks’ stranded into the mix. Details on the upcoming vs. film are quite slim at the moment but this key Monsterverse tease has us excited to see what’s next for Godzilla and King Kong!
