Thanks to the MCU, post-credits scenes are now considered almost essential to franchise films, where upcoming sequels and spin-offs can be teased to hypnotize fans. In an interview with Collider, the director of Godzilla vs Kong, Adam Wingard revealed that the film would also have its own post-credit scene, which was later shifted to make it part of the main storyline.
“We did shoot a post-credits scene, but we ended up using it in the movie. Because we were filming it while we were making the movie, we realized we needed a scene at the end of the movie. had this footage and we were like, ‘Wait a minute, if we really change this thing about this footage we originally made for a post-credit thing, we can actually use it in the movie.’ And it’s really effective. We just sacrificed our post credits scene. Which makes sense because frankly it’s not even like that post credits scene is picking up anything special. It wasn’t like saying “this is definitely where the MonsterVerse is going. [next]
The truth is, the MonsterVerse cinematic universe is that GvK is part of struggling financially for a while. The previous films in the series performed poorly at the box office and failed to sway the critics too much in their favor. It is quite possible that the studio saw Godzilla to Kong as the last, epic hurray for the franchise before the series ended, which is why the post-credit scene was dropped. According to Wingard, the absence of the post-credit scene frees the MonsterVerse to go in a new direction based on the audience’s reaction.
[The post-credits scene] would have done something, but it would have cornered us. I think the MonsterVerse is at a crossroads where audiences have to vote if they want to see one more of these movies before moving on. I think that’s very healthy. We’ve been through a decade or so of the rise of movies from the universe, the versus movies. Marvel is clearly doing the best. Ultimately, though, I don’t think these movies should necessarily imitate Marvel. They should be their own thing. So I think it’s better not to corner yourself to some degree. It makes sense that we don’t have a post credits scene. Let’s find out what people really like about this movie and then if we’re going to make a sequel, let’s see what that is based on what people like and don’t like. “
Based on the positive reviews for Godzilla vs. Kong, and his stellar box-office debut, it’s quite likely that the MonsterVerse is finally back on track and ready to get bigger than ever. Directed by Adam Wingard and written by Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein, Godzilla to Kong stars Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry. This news was first reported to Collider.
