The marketing for Michael Dougherty's Godzilla sequel, titled Godzilla: King of the Monsters has officially begun today with the mention of Monster Zero! On Twitter, Dougherty himself shared a frame of what looks to be MONARCH satellite imagery. The image seemingly shows off massive thermal radiation and/or seismic activity. The code-word labeled at the top of the frame reads "Monster Zero" and we all know what means!
Previously, Dougherty also shared a picture of the Godzilla 2 crew capturing sound bites from a Rattle Snake - insinuating that King Ghidorah may in fact hiss like a Rattle Snake in some capacity:
Of course, we're speculating the Rattle Snake is in relation to Ghidorah, we just don't see it being a noise Rodan or Anguirus would make.
The exciting fact here though is that marketing for Godzilla 2 is officially gearing up and will continue to ramp up throughout the summer! For the latest on King of the Monsters, keep it locked to Godzilla-Movies!

If they end up saying that Ghidorah was the first monster discovered by the government before Monarch was even established, then I'd say that is a damn clever way to incorporate the "monster zero" nickname.
I am wondering if the name of "King Ghidorah" will even be featured in this movie, seeing as he is only named "monster zero" in the marketing so far. if the name of "King Ghidorah" does get in the movie some way, I am interested to see where the origins of that name comes from.
@riggzamortis86"I can tell Dougherty really wants this movie to be for the fans." The stuff in this movie is clearly content fans will love and appreciate, but this movie, like the first two MonsterVerse installments, are design to appeal more to the general audience.
^while I can agree with you on that 100%, there are small things that Dougherty has teased/added to this installment that only true fans would appreciate. For example(not confirmed but teased to all): a possible introduction of including the Oxygen Destroyer. Referring King Ghidorah as "Monster Zero", having Monarch file numbers reference dates that certain Kaiju films released in theaters(see Mothra for reference).
Just saying this movie is different. This is an American made monster movie that features 4 of Toho's most popular characters and giving them a whole new look and feel. King Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan have never been through a "Hollywood" treatment like Godzilla has.
Through a director like Dougherty, where he himself is a fan and knows the audience that he is always trying to reach with his films, he knows this is going to be special for Godzilla fans as well as the general audience. I just hope he knows how to balance this one out for both.
Making a movie exclusively for fans is a huge mistake every company can make and avoid. Godzilla fans(Or Kaiju fans in general) are very small compared to the mainstream audience, so our support isn't enough to help the movie.
