Before Godzilla stomps his way to San Diego Comic-Con Entertainment Weekly have debuted our first official look at the upcoming sequel, King of the Monsters!
Revealing Godzilla's mighty atomic breath in an exclusive movie still (below), EW also caught up with director Michael Dougherty, below are excerpts of their interview:
The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” says director Michael Dougherty, whose previous credits include the horror movie Krampus. Godzilla hasn’t been seen since that destructive finale, “but there’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.
He goes on to mention Rodan's involvement and the other monsters:
Rodan’s been kind of a sidekick character, but I’ve always had a soft spot for him” says Dougherty. “In a lot of ways he’s more powerful than Godzilla. He’s like this winged A-bomb. I think we’ve done him justice.” But let’s not forget Godzilla himself, who reveals he has the ability to exhale “atomic breath.” Can Dougherty expand on that description? “Not without giving away too much,” he laughs. “But it takes place at a very key moment and it’s a sort of call to arms.

Can I get a second pair of eyes to confirm that tubby's spines are bigger and/or redesigned a bit? That's one adjustment I thought would really improve the design and it looks like a shade of Millennium Godzilla spines made it in there.
Exactly. Hell I do not mind Dougherty borrowing from Shin, it's the highest form of flattery and Godzilla looks badass in this pose. This alone has convinced me the movie will at least look good, which is fair since it's the same cinematographer. Definitely a bit of a tub, but let's be honest, Shin is THICC.
But judging by the stormy background, that begs the question: Does he get more powerful with more electricity? In other words, does electricity enhance his own abilities? And on that note, has he gained more since the last time we saw him? So many questions, yet so much more anticipation and excitement. Let's just wait and see.
Holy ****! It's better than last time. It's back. Godzilla has a proper Atomic Breath again! No more thin lasers like in Shin and the anime. Furthermore this doesn't look like the weak blast from 2014. This is a full powered blast. I can't wait to see this in battle! I love it! I love that the spines are bigger! I just hope the eyes and teeth are bigger too. But thankfully Godzilla's signature weapon has been given justice. The King has returned!
