Director of Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters, Mike Dougherty just shared a photo of a prop of of the infamous Oxygen Destroyer - the iconic weapon created by Dr. Daisuke Serizawa in the 1954 original Toho film - to Twitter. The capsule shown below contained "Micro Oxygen" an element which was discovered to have devastating capabilities when unleashed on living organisms. The result of being exposed to the Oxygen Destroyer rendered nearby living organisms to mere skeletons - which is exactly what happened to the original Gojira.

Sharing the photo to Twitter, Dougherty tagged the photo "Day 41", accounting for the 41st day of Godzilla 2's filming:

Does this insinuate that the Oxygen Destroyer will be devised in Legendary and Warner Brother's Monsterverse? Will it ultimately be used against Godzilla once again? We doubt it.

Since before the 2014 film, rumor had it that one of the contractual agreements made between Legendary and Godzilla rights owners Toho stipulated that Godzilla was not allowed to die in any of the films Legendary and Warner Bros. produce. Introducing the Oxygen Destroyer would introduce a means of killing Godzilla. What's more likely the case for the photo tease is merely to excite fans for the continued production on King of the Monsters and nothing more.

Alternatively, it could also be an insinuation that the Oxygen Destroyer is at some point in the film introduced or discussed - but due to the agreement with Toho - will not be used on Godzilla. Perhaps a Godzilla sympathizer manages to convince the government not to unleash the weapon on him, for fear of eradicating Earth's last line of natural defense against other-worldly threats (ie. Ghidorah).

Regardless of the intentions behind this teaser image, we're excited to see Dougherty continuously posting about the film on his social media channels. We'll be keeping a close eye on any future reveals, so be sure to keep your browsers locked to Godzilla-Movies.com as we move forward!

9 Fan responses to Godzilla 2: Oxygen Destroyer prop teased by Director!

I'm guessing that King Ghidorah will be too powerful for Godzilla and Mothra so they will use it.


TitanosaurusMember934 XPAug-14-2017 12:09 PM

I was wondering if they would bring the Oxygen Destroyer into the MonsterVerse.

I think it's going to just be a neat little Easter egg for the fans when the movie comes out.


Mothra LarvaeMember10 XPAug-14-2017 1:00 PM

I have a feeling they'll save it for an After Credit scene.


BaragonMember339 XPAug-14-2017 2:17 PM

It was and has been a purposeful weapon in the original movie and the destroyer film.. but in the Showa era.. it was never mentioned.. that I'm aware of. If the monster verse is going to exist as Godzilla being the cornerstone on which they build it with.. it would make no sense to kill Godzilla off with a oxygen destroyer weapon.. or any other monster for that matter. 

Besides.. the theme is nature has a balance.. not nature must be balanced by mankind for survivals sake.

They really need to leave the doors open on Godzilla for future movies.. and Toho should allow it to grow.. after all.. THIS Godzilla was far better than that crappy iguana version. Toho could make money big time.. instead of relying on shin gojira.. to carry the franchise along.. imo.

Hypothesis: They use it on Ghidorah, then in Godzilla vs Kong the Kaiju unite to fight Destoroyah, born from the Oxygen Destroyer. Of course this seems unlikely but it could happen.

If Michael Dougherty does mention the OD at all it is probably going to be Dr. Serizawa's back story. Maybe that's the real reason Monarch wanted Dr. Serizawa on their team. Not just because his father told him secrets of the organization, and Godzilla along with other MUTO's, but because maybe Monarch learned of Dr. Serizawa's "Oxygen Destroyer", but because he knew the power of his invention was more destructive than Godzilla he kept it hidden out of Monarch's reach. Maybe that's why they ask his son to come join the team.
