Who is the new villain in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire?

Director Adam Wingard, who helmed Godzilla vs Kong, has been talking about the film's mysterious new baddie, a primate named The Star King.

He tells Total Film: "What’s interesting about this new film is that we go in a direction that I don’t think this series has ever seen before, which is that the Skar King is, in a way, the closest that the human threat has ever been juxtaposed onto a titan itself. The Skar King almost represents an upscaled version of the worst parts of humanity, just as Kong represents some of the best parts of humanity. I would say the Skar King is the greatest threat that we’ve seen in these movies. It’s really going to take a full team together to bring it down because it’s too big for just one titan!"
