On Reddit “Ask Me Anything,” the director of Godzilla vs. Kong’s Adam Wingard reveals that the latest MonsterVerse movie originally had a different ending.
Godzilla vs. Kong Director Adam Wingard reveals that the movie originally ended differently. It’s been almost a month since the MonsterVerse showdown was released. Suffice it to say that it has been a great success. The public loves it and the critical reception has been generally favorable. Impressively Godzilla vs. Kong has already surpassed the worldwide box office of Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
59 years after the original King Kong vs. Godzilla, the beasts collided again. It’s a different story context, but the wonder of seeing two giant monsters bump into each other was still there. Godzilla vs. Kong It certainly had a notable presence on social media in preparation for its release. Fans enjoyed going back and forth over who will emerge victorious. In the end, after a three-round fight, Godzilla emerged as the winner. However, Kong was revived to help fight Mechagodzilla and received the final blow on the robot. The finale saw the monsters recognize each other before Godzilla went into the ocean. The movie then gave Kong a farewell as King of the Hollow Earth. Interestingly, the movie could have ended differently.
Recently, Wingard participated in a “Ask me anything“on Reddit, responding to various Godzilla vs. Kong questions. One user asked the director if there were any alternate final plans before the final version was put together. According to Wingard, the movie originally ended differently.
“The original ending was just G swimming in the ocean, but Kong’s story didn’t seem to fit right in.”
Most fans would probably agree that the ending of the final version is superior. Godzilla and Kong recognized each other after their tag team established that the two were no longer enemies after an old rivalry. After that, although Kong lost the battle with Godzilla earlier, showing him ruling in the Hollow Earth gave the ape a satisfying closure. The end of Godzilla vs. Kong It didn’t set any future sequels as some expected, but it ended in a way that could effectively end MonsterVerse or leave the door open for sequels.
It is always interesting to hear about the development of a movie and what was changed / cut. Wingard revealed earlier that there was enough footage for a 5 hour cut of Godzilla vs. Kong. Unfortunately for fans, Wingard isn’t interested in any kind of director’s cut. Hopefully, when the movie is released on home media, the deleted scenes will make way for special features, along with more information on Godzilla vs. Kong growth.
