The Godzilla vs Kong trailer continues to spark debate on the internet. After breaking Warner’s most viewed trailer in the first 24 hours with 25.6 million views, surpassing The Batman, which had 22 million views on day one on YouTube, the film yielded memes of people supporting their favorite titan and continues to engage fans on social media.
Another popular theory is that the villain of the film would be none other than the deadly Mechagodzilla, one of the greatest rivals in the vast history of Godzilla. This speculation started in 2020, when the film’s first official toys leaked, which confirmed, for example, that Godzilla and Kong would be roughly the same size. Also, there was a silver doll in the same shape as Godzilla, but it didn’t appear to be the monster itself. The look was very similar to a metal skeleton of the Monster King. With that, the folks at #TeamGodzilla panicked. It also weighs on their side that in all of Mechagodzilla’s appearances on the big screen he was only defeated by Gojira’s partnership with another Kaiju, be it King Cesar or Rodan. With the launch of the trailer, several people claim to have seen the Silver Monster attacking a city.
However, looking at Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters (2019), the post-credit scene for the feature seems to point to the emergence of a new villain. And no, it’s not Mechagodzilla. In the scene, ecoterrorist Alan Jonah (Charles Dance) is seen, who believes the destruction caused by the titans is necessary to restore Earth’s natural balance, negotiating a body part of one of the monsters with Mexican traffickers. And it wasn’t a nail or a bone plate, but one of Ghidorah’s severed heads in the fight that took place in Mexico.
As some may know, Mechagodzilla is made by aliens. He would later gain a man-built version in response to frequent attacks from Godzilla. However, none of them were made with cut parts of the Monster King. Now, there’s a villain that fits perfectly with what’s shown in the post-credit scene: Mecha-Ghidorah. Created in 1991, in the film Godzilla vs King Ghidorah, the monster was made in the 21st century, with the remains of Ghidorah, after the last battle of the 1990s. He is then sent from the future to 1992, in an attempt to defeat Godzilla once and for all and prevent him from destroying Tokyo again. Mixing organic pieces with futuristic technology, Mecha-Ghidorah is an even more powerful opponent than “organic” Ghidorah. Its most striking feature is, without a doubt, the anti-gravity beam, which was responsible for lifting the Godzilla into the air as if it were moss.

After several postponements, the studio has now informed CinePOP that the film will hit national theaters on March 25, a week before its release in the United States.
