Alexander Skarsgard joins ‘Godzilla vs Kong’ as ‘a tiny, tiny human trying to survive’

True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard is part of the new cast in the upcoming movie Godzilla vs. Kong and talked about his character during  an interview with SiriusXM on Monday in New York City.

“That’s not true. That’s a lie,” Skarsgard said, refuting the rumors that he’s playing the leader of a military unit.

“He’s not an alpha, bad-ass hero, which I thought was quite interesting. He is thrown into this very dangerous situation and is definitely not equipped for it and that makes it a bit more interesting in my opinion than had he been a bad-ass dude. He’s just a tiny, tiny human trying to survive between these two behemoths.”

Adam Wingard is directing the film, which will be the fourth installment of the Godzilla-Kong cinematic universe, following Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla, Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ Kong: Skull Island, and Michael Dougherty‘s upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Skarsgard joins Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) and Oscar-nominated actor Demián Bichir (The Nun) in the film as new cast members joining to the big budget monster bash.

The new film stars Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler and Zhang Ziyi, who appear in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, along with Danai Gurira, who played Michonne on Walking Dead and Okoye in Black Panther.

The specific details about Godzilla vs. Kong are still under wraps. Regarding the upcoming movie, director Adam Wingard said: “I really want you to take those characters seriously. I want you to be emotionally invested, not just in the human characters, but actually in the monsters. It’s a massive monster brawl movie. There’s lots of monsters going crazy on each other, but at the end of the day I want there to be an emotional drive to it. I want you to be emotionally invested in them. I think that’s what’s going to make it really cool.”

Wingard, who directed The GuestDeath Note and more, also added: “I do want there to be a winner. The original film was very fun, but you feel a little let down that the movie doesn’t take a definitive stance. People are still debating now who won in that original movie, you know. So, I do want people to walk away from this film feeling like, Okay, there is a winner.”


Godzilla vs. Kong has  a release date set for May 22, 2020
