Which Kong: Skull Island Character Appears in Godzilla: King of the Monsters?

Which Kong: Skull Island character appears in Godzilla: King of the Monsters?

Last summer it was revealed that a character from Kong: Skull Island (the 70s set second movie in the Monster-Verse) would appear in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Many theorized that the character in question would be none other than Tom Hiddleston’s James Conrad, who they thought was being played by Charles Dance.

Now that Godzilla: King of the Monsters is here though, we know which character appears, and if you blink, you’ll miss them. Hint: They’re in the photo above!

Spoilers ahead!

A brief scene about 2/3 of the way through Godzilla: King of the Monsters sees Mothra emerge from her cacoon, spreading her glorious wings. In the scene, none other than Terminator 2 star Joe Morton appears as a scientist, which seems like a random cameo from a character actor; however, Morton is actually playing Dr. Houston Brooks, the character played by Corey Hawkins in Kong: Skull Island! In the post-credit scene of Skull Island, Hawkins’ character was recruited to become a part of Monarch, and it seems like he stayed with the company four decades later.
