Ever since Warner Bros. announced Godzilla vs Kong was delayed back in December, many people speculated the movie was undergoing heavy reshoots. On March 16th in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, actress Eiza Gonzalez had shed some light on the reshoots and it turns out that it is not as much as fans and clickbait blogs made them out to be.
THR asked Eiza Gonzalez if she had to go back for more additional photography after a couple of other cast members from Godzilla vs Kong mentioned that they didn't have to go back. The actress replied, "We did a few days [of additional photography], but it wasn’t really crazy. Like every other film, we did a couple days, and that was kind of it. When you do these big, massive films, there’s always moments that you didn’t see and want to fill in. It was really basic stuff. Nothing too crucial or crazy."
Basic means very minor scenes had to be redone whether it was to add or fix a small shot in a scene or two. This is especially so when it involves a scene that isn't anything "crucial or crazy".
Before she answered the question about the reshoots, she shared her experience on the set of Godzilla vs Kong in the previous paragraph.
"Yeah, everything’s been done. These movies take a long time because there’s a lot of CGI in them. But, yeah, we’ve done everything, and they’re just going through and creating these incredible characters. I’m just really excited to see it because it’s these two worlds colliding. The fan base for Godzilla vs. Kong is incredible. When I say I’m in the movie, people are like, “Oh my God.” Seeing that fanaticism and seeing how excited they are to see this movie makes me really excited; I think they’re going to be really happy. [Director] Adam Wingard is so talented. Both stories are going parallel, as you’ll see, without giving anything away. It’s a large cast as well, and it was really fun to be part of it. There’s so much going on, but the heart of it is two young girls as well, which is such a positive message for society nowadays. It’s just incredible."
It sounded like Eiza Gonzalez is excited to see the finished product of the film. During the filming of Godzilla vs Kong, Eiza was also shooting Bloodshot with Vin Diesel. So she had a conflicting schedule having to fly back and forth between shooting locations and the schedule for Godzilla vs Kong was very demanding as she is in the whole film. Despite feeling pressured from shooting two movies at the same time Eiza is overall happy that the fans are excited and she is excited to see the final product of the film as well.
