The three brothers, Godzilla, Minira and Little, are working hard today to train for a great monster!


King of the Monsters Sets Up Mecha-Ghidorah For Godzilla 3

From Screen Rant

The post-credits scene of Godzilla: King of the Monsters sets up Mecha-King Ghidorah as a villain in Godzilla 3. Godzilla has succeeded in defeating his ancient enemy, but thanks to advanced technology, Ghidorah can get another shot at Godzilla. Godzilla 3 can renew the rivalry between the two alpha predators -- but with a twist.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters brings three classic Toho kaiju to the MonsterVerse for an epic showdown that threatens the entire planet. When eco-terrorists scheme to save the world by using a device called the Orca, Titans are unleashed upon the world. The return of King Ghidorah, an alien monster defeated by Godzilla centuries ago, draws Rodan and Mothra into a battle for dominance with Godzilla. After a near-death experience and three brutal encounters with King Ghidorah, Godzilla makes one last stand against King Ghidorah and manages to destroy him with his atomic pulses. With King Ghidorah dead, Rodan and the other Titans recognize Godzilla as the new alpha.

King Ghidorah is Godzilla's biggest enemy in the Toho movies, so it seems only fitting that he would be the main antagonist. Ghidorah has been a thorn in Godzilla's side for 50 years, having fought him seven times now beginning with Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster in 1964. King of the Monsters may not be their last fight in the MonsterVerse. Here's how Godzilla's ultimate enemy can be back for another round at some point in the MonsterVerse's future.

“Godzilla” Director Reveals New Easter Egg and the Post Credit Scene We Almost Had

From Bleeding Cool

Godzilla: King of the Monsters was a box office underdog this year, but is conversely labeled as a pivotal chapter for kaiju movies. The epic levels of monster-madness the film used provided such an onslaught of creature carnage that director Michael Dougherty recently spoke out about an easter-egg we may have missed as well as a post-credit scene that never was.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters was in a unique position, coming off complaints from the 2014 Godzilla film for being too driven by character storylines as opposed to Godzilla himself. In KOTM, Godzilla, as well as his monster co-stars, received a majority of screentime introducing several epic titan battles that were unlike anything the franchise had pulled off in 35 films. As the occasional casual viewers took issue with the choice, hardcore fans of the insanely expansive franchise (like myself) have fallen for Dougherty’s adaptation for good reason.

With Dougherty having that same passion for Godzilla as the fandom, he has introduced a plethora of easter eggs and intended scenes. One of these scenes includes the skeletal remains of Anguirus, which first appeared in 1955. Dougherty took to Twitter and explained:

THE TRUTH OF THE KAIJU-SIZED URBAN LEGEND ABOUT KING KONG VS. GODZILLA'S ENDING

From SyFy Wire

For years, King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) was the subject of one of the most endearing urban legends in the study of science fiction cinema. American genre fans spent decades believing that the movie had two distinct endings, and that the winner of the film's eponymous battle depended on which one you saw. In the original Japanese ending, supposedly, Godzilla won; in the heavily re-edited American version produced by John Beck (the cut most U.S. fans are familiar with and the only one commercially available in North America for the longest time), Kong came out on top.

The Japanese version of King Kong vs. Godzilla has historically been barred from release in the U.S. due to peculiar legal roadblocks, so it was perhaps rather easy, in the days before the internet, to accept this undeniably flavorful story at face value. However, thanks to the efforts of resourceful fans, the truth is now pretty well known: Disappointing though it may be for some, the Japanese version of King Kong vs. Godzilla has fundamentally the same ending as its American counterpart. In both finales, Godzilla and Kong are locked in a furious battle; they smash Atami Castle before tumbling off a cliff into the ocean; an undersea earthquake churns the water where the two behemoths vanished; Kong rises to the surface and swims away; Godzilla is nowhere to be seen. The end.



Although there was ultimately no truth to it, the "double ending" still makes for a tantalizing conversation piece. (Who doesn't like the idea of alternate endings to a battle between the two most famous movie monsters in history?) And since the original Japanese version of King Kong vs. Godzilla is at long last set to receive an official U.S. release this October (not to mention there's a new Hollywood film, Godzilla vs. Kong, coming out next March), it seems like a good time to try to discuss where this "double ending" myth came from in the first place. What metaphorical atomic bomb mutated this falsehood into a monstrous urban legend?
