Simple or going-to future? Which one is correct? And why? And, if both are correct, please, explain in what context you would use each one. A) That'll never happen. B) That's never gonna happen.

Both are correct and they are interchangeable. There's no clear scenario where you would use one instead of the other. "Gonna," however, is slang for "going to" and makes option B read more informal.

A is referring to the future: Me: "One day the Uffizi gallery will sell all of Michelangelo's work to the Americans." You: "That will never happen." B is referring to the present: Me to woman on Date: Hey give me a goodnight kiss! Woman: That is never going to happen.

Both are correct, but B is more informal.
