The director of Godzilla vs. Kong’s Adam Wingard reveals the reason for the film’s ultimate winner, admitting that it originated with a second-degree gamble.
As two iconic titans prepare to fight in Godzilla vs. Kong, Principal Adam Wingard confirmed that the outcome was decided many years ago, when he was in second grade.
Talking to Total movie magazine, Wingard revealed the origin of the film’s decisive conclusion. “I felt like I would have walked away from the movie at any time if I had been pushed into a corner where there was not going to be a definitive winner,” he said. “Part of the reason I wanted to direct this movie in the first place is because I wanted to win an argument I had with my friend in second grade where we were discussing who would win in a fight: Godzilla or King Kong? I knew who I thought should win. , 100%. And I thought my friend was 100% wrong. So, 30 years ago, and here I am. This is the smallest conducting gig I’ve ever taken, because it’s for Win a fight with a sophomore! grade! “

The debate over which Titan is the strongest has captured the public’s imagination for decades, as past examples failed to provide a definitive answer. While the two have fought before in King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962), the deliberately ambiguous ending left open the question of who reigned.
Of course, Godzilla and Kong won’t be alone, as it’s been largely hinted that other major kaiju will challenge the main titans, including a potentially major threat from Godzilla lore.
Directed by Adam Wingard and written by Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein, Godzilla vs. Kong stars Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, and Brian Tyree Henry. The film hits theaters and at HBO Max on March 31.
