There have been numerous rumors which have circulated about Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters and the potential of additional Toho Monsters (not including Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah) being included. Although some of these rumors have seemed probable in a few cases, none of them were ever confirmed. But now, thanks to the February issue of Movie Hidden Treasure Magazine, we have confirmation from director Michael Dougherty himself that the other, unnamed Titans are NOT Toho Monsters.
The magazine was translated and broken down by our friends at Gormaru Island, check out some other points that were brought up:
Michael Dougherty believes the original 1954 Godzilla is the Godzilla with the best dorsal fins.
In bringing back the classical themes, Michael Dougherty states that he wholeheartedly believes that Akira Ifukube's iconic franchise scores and themes should never be separated from any Godzilla movie.
Michael Dougherty - "On the first day when we started principal photography on 'King of the Monsters', my agent gave me a photo of Godzilla, a photo that was signed by Godzilla himself Mr. Nakajima (Haruo Nakajima).
While I was filming the movie, throughout the entire duration, I had it framed up in my trailer. In a way, it seemed akin to an alter.
When Nakajima had passed, we had turned down the lights on set, and our entire staff, all of us, stayed silent. And we kept silent. Even for the American staff working on the film, Mr. Nakajima was a treasured existence."

"When the animators tried to make the gravity beams different, I would stepped in, and with readied images in hand of Ghidorah and the original gravity beams seen in films, I would say 'No, that is different!' "
In regards to the mysterious other Titans teased to rise in KOTM, and in answering on the speculation of one of them being another Toho-Monster, Michael Dougherty states "There are no other Toho-Monsters appearing".
