What I would want to see if Adam Wingard does a Director's Cut of Godzilla Vs. Kong1,060 Views3 RepliesAdd A Reply
Adam Wingard has stated that he filmed over 5 hours of footage in the initial non-edited cut of Godzilla Vs. Kong, and if some of that footage is released as deleted scenes in the home release or used in a director's cut, here are the top 5 things that I would want to see in a GVK Extended Edition if it ever comes out:
1. More fleshed out development of the human characters
Godzilla Vs. Kong had a whole lot of new human characters that were not developed at all in favor of devoting the majority of the film to CGI kaiju carnage. I would've liked to see these newcomer characters, particularly Nathan Lind (Alexander Skarsgard), Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall), Jia (Kaylee Hottle), Ren Seriwaza (Shun Orguri), Walter Simmons (Demian Bichir), and Bernie Hayes (Brian Tyree Henry) developed more. WB and Legendary could've also delved into existing MonsterVerse characters that returned in GVK, like Madison Russell (Millie Bobby Brown) and Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler). Maybe more fleshed out human characters wouldn't be a bad thing in GVK for all it's worth.
2. More screen-time for Godzilla
A problem that has plagued Godzilla (2014) and Godzilla: King of The Monsters gave so little screentime to it's title star. Godzilla got more screentime this movie finally beating the 8-minute mark with 11 minutes and 16 seconds of screentime. But that was still less than half the screentime Kong got, which was 26 minutes and 51 seconds of screentime. For a title that puts two characters on there, I think it only made sense for the two monsters to get equal billing. I also think Big G should've gotten an epilogue like Kong did at the end of the movie as well.
3. The Ancient Titan War
Another great opportunity that was missed was showing flashbacks of the ancient war fought between Godzilla and Kong's ancestors. Not only would it have been great to see, but it would've provided more insight on their rivalry.
4. Longer runtime
Another thing that could've given opportunity for the said above is to have a longer runtime. Sure, long runtimes can sometimes lead to bloated messes in movies. But this movie could've used at least 40 minutes more of runtime to flesh out the already coherent story.
5. A post-credits scene
One MonsterVerse staple that was oddly not present in Godzilla Vs. Kong was a post-credits scene. But some concept art surfaced of a planned post-credits scene teasing the rebirth of Mothra after she was killed by Ghidorah in Godzilla: King of The Monsters. But what if this post-credits scene was filmed? Zhang Ziyi and Jessica Henwick were supposed to have roles in GVK but were cut. So what if this art was their scene? We may never know.
But do you guys think we should get some deleted scenes or maybe an extended cut of Godzilla Vs. Kong? Let me know down in the comments. That's all for now!
we dont know the others scenes tho, they might make the movie worse.
