In the imminent Monsterverse movie, Godzilla vs. Kong‘s musical score composer, Junkie XL, revealed some behind-the-scenes insights into the epic kaiju battle.
Following the release of the latest clip, the film composer Junkie XL described the mouth-watering scene that recently became available to fans.

As per Screen Rant, he stated:
I’m not going to say how this thing ends. And then so, this scene that was released today, was it on IGN? Forty seconds of footage? That scene is 18 minutes long and it’s ridiculous.
Godzilla vs. Kong‘s latest teaser featured a snapshot of the battle at the aircraft carrier. While the footage was a fleeting shot of the fighting kaiju, viewers now realize, as maintained by the music composer, that the fighting scene lasts far longer in-air than what was teased in the preview.
There have been different directors for each movie in the franchise. The 2014 Godzilla was headed by Gareth Edwards, 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, by Jordan Vogt-Roberts while 2019’s Godzilla: King of Monsters was helmed by Michael Dougherty.

While the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong is the first Monsterverse project where Adam Wingard will be sitting on the director’s chair, he said:
I wanted this to feel like the Godzilla that we’ve been used to for the last few movies, and I wanted Kong to feel like the Kong that we had in Skull Island so that when they fought, it really felt like this was really them going at each other.
Following the trailer drop of the upcoming Kaiju movie, Wingard said he was trying to place his special directorial imprint on Godzilla vs. Kong, adding,
I know it looks like it shows a lot but this is only the tip of the monster iceberg.
Godzilla vs. Kong is set half a decade after the events of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which shows Kong in the custody of humanity in order to face Godzilla.
The latest movie also hinted at the appearance of another Kaiju, namely a cybernetic entity developed from the remnants of King Ghidorah.
