It may star two of the most popular on-screen monsters in existence, but one monster in particular will win the battle in 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong. Both of the incredibly popular franchises are working their way towards this undeniable crossover spectacle, and the wait to see who emerges victorious shortens by the day.
According to Entertainment Weekly, director Adam Wingard insists there will definitely be a winner and a loser in this particular clash.
“I do want there to be a winner,” Wingard enforced. “The original film (1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla) was very fun, but you feel a little let down that the movie doesn’t take a definitive stance. People are still debating now who won in that original movie, you know. So, I do want people to walk away from this film feeling like, Okay, there is a winner.”
Not only did Wingard divulge his desire for a definite winner in Godzilla vs. Kong, but he also shed a bit of light on his experience on the set of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, directed by Michael Dougherty.
“It was really cool,” the director said. “Part of me just wanted to go there and see what a $200 million — or whatever it’s costing — movie looked like. And I was kind of relieved to see that, at a certain point, movies can only get so big. That’s kind of what I got from it. It was really educational, just from that perspective. Mike was really nice. I’d never met him before. I walked up to him on set and he was taking pictures of one of the props or something, and he was laughing with somebody, and I was like, ‘Oh, this was really encouraging, to see that you’re smiling and looking happy!’ Because he was halfway through that production, so he could have been in horrible shape.”
Wingard’s latest movie, Death Note, will debut Friday, August 25 on Netflix. The director has previously worked on a collection of horror films, including You’re Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch.
Godzilla vs. Kong is set to stomp into theaters on May 22, 2020, but not before Godzilla: King of Monsters on March 22, 2019. Part of the so-called “MonsterVerse,” Godzilla vs. Kong won’t only see the titular characters up against each other — they’ll be taking on both classic and new monsters, too.
