Most of us who have seen Godzilla vs. Kong already know the feeling we experienced when watching the film regarding Kong and it appears director Adam Wingard felt the same!

During a recent interview with Variety, Wingard was asked whether he sided with Godzilla more over Kong while making the movie and although Wingard admits to being more of a Godzilla fan over a Kong fan, he did acknowledge that he felt more for Kong. He felt for him so much in fact that he actually removed a number of scenes from the film's early scripts because the acts against Kong seemed to much:

Kong did have a more prominent human connection in this film, from his development to his interactions with the film's human characters, so it's natural for most of us to have developed a sense of sympathy towards him. Whether you're more of a Godzilla fan or Kong fan, we can all agree, we felt bad for Kong when he was losing and we felt overjoyed when he managed to get a win or two.

Did you feel bad for Kong at any point during the film? Did this movie make you more of a Kong fan than Godzilla fan? Let us know below!

I was unhappy that Kong didn't win...

I gained respect for Kong due to the determination of his character.  As a Godzilla addict, I felt bad for how badly he got messed up at the end but to be fair, he gave it just as bad to Kong who probably just wanted to be left alone and not hunted down for something that happened before his time.

I wish the kaiju war was explored more...

Team Godzilla from start to finish but Kong really grew on me after watching this film

I would have liked to have seen Kong take more of a beating. Godzilla easily took more damage than Kong. Kong pounded on him and stabbed him in the leg with his axe. Then he was beaten badly by MG. MG really did nothing to Kong.

Godzilla certainly took a good beating in this film but I have to feel bad for Kong as well, he was clearly the underdog and had the odds stacked against him pretty heavily. Godzilla is the big bad guy on the block and I actually preferred Godzilla taking a more antagonistic role this time around. I'll always be more a Godzilla fan but I'll admit I was rooting for Kong by the end.

I understand why they removed that, Kong didn't deserve that much abuse. Even the scene of Godzilla shredding Kong's chest was honestly hard to watch.
