When King Kong and Godzilla square off, it’s hard to go much further. But what if you throw in the Justice League for good measure? That’s the premise behind Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong, a new crossover comic from DC and Legendary Entertainment.
The series was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. Produced in partnership with Toho International, Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong is a seven-issue crossover that sees the barriers between life break down and the creatures of the Monsterverse spillover into the DC Universe.

It is a great pleasure to open up the DC Universe and Legendary’s Monsterverse to this dream project.”
