While Godzilla and King Kong are gigantic and terrifying monsters, there is a huge difference in the way the two have been depicted over the years. Kong is always shown in a sympathetic light, a gentle creature who only attacks others when disturbed. Godzilla, on the other hand, has been portrayed as everything from hero to antihero to outright villain. In a new interview, Godzilla Vs Kong Director Adam Wingard confirmed that the next film will also feature Kong as the heroic lead.
“I see [Kong] as not just an animal. It’s the gunman without the shooting. He’s this overflowing action hero who doesn’t find himself in a great place in his life. The way I always see my version of Kong … in Kong: Skull Island, back in the ’70s, it’s basically Clint Eastwood in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. In my version, this is Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven. It is at the end of its rope. He’s not having a great time. But when action calls for you, you’re always ready to step up and take it on! “
Through the trailers released for the film so far, fans have gotten a glimpse of Kong’s personal motivations in fights. Godzilla. The two super predators share an old rivalry that is renewed when it seems that Godzilla has gone rogue and attacks cities for no reason. This leads the government organization Monarch to bring Kong, with a battle ax, to face the giant lizard.
So does that mean Godzilla will be the villain of the story? While the trailer certainly seems to suggest it, previous films in the franchise established the giant lizard as a force for good, taking on the threat of the MUTOs and King Ghidorah to protect Earth. According to Wingard, both legendary monsters will have equal time to make their case and win the sympathy of the audience.
“I like how Godzilla is a character who is a pendulum in terms of his personality. He oscillates between being a heel and the good guy. I was really excited to be able to do the first legendary Godzilla where he is seen as the heel of the movie. And so by proxy, Kong will feel a bit more like the hero. I think fans of both will be able to cheer them on equally. They both get equal weight in the movie, in their own ways. “
No matter how the big fight between the two main characters goes, we also know that Mechagodzilla will enter the fray at some point, forcing Kong and Godzilla to team up to defeat him, but hopefully not before the debate over who would win. a fight between King Kong and Godzilla is finally resolved.
