Netizens are still obsessed with their first-look at the epic crossover which is slated to debut this spring.

Taking to social media, Wingard hit up fans with a video reel he edited on his own time.

"Watching the Godzilla Vs Kong trailer blow up across the internet has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I can't thank you all enough for making the launch such a success. When directing a big movie like this it takes years off of your life," Wingard wrote.
"Its a long difficult process that sometimes feels like there is no end in sight! Just look at my beard before and after GVK, I barely had any grey hairs and now I look like f-cking Santa Clause! BUT NOTHING has rejuvenated me more than being able to watch the excitement to the trailer online in the many fan reaction videos. This is what its all about. I may not be able to enjoy this with ya'll in a cinema just yet but to see and hear the excitement in these trailer reaction videos has made this long journey worthwhile."
Clearly, Wingard was blown away by the success of the trailer. The wait for Godzilla vs Kong has been a long one given a slew of release changes and pandemic delays. Now, it seems the crossover is slated to debut this March in both theaters and HBO Max. Given how epic the trailer looks, Godzilla vs Kong might just be one of the first big hits of 2021, and this reel proves how hyped fans are for the big premiere!
