I had my doubts on the design of Godzilla for this movie after those few images made the way the tail connected to the rest of the body look really wonky, but that poster and the trailer really renewed my confidence.
so from the angles we see of Godzilla, does he evolve from having eyes or is that just me? It looks like he evolved from having eyes, like his body is one with the planet and he see's and feels all that goes on there so his eyes just went out? since there are beings there that are 97% Godzilla maybe that's the next step? just making conversation here.
I love that they also showed the Atomic Ray. Hooray for classic blue. But I wonder how it will look and what kind of damage it will do? Will it be like Shin Godzilla's super focused beam that cuts through or more like the Heisei and Millennium ray that deals a massive amount of concussive force along with the intense heat? It was hard to tell in the trailer, due to the angle of the shot.
Okay, riggzamortis86, I did some re-checking. Godzilla DOES have visible eyes! In the scene from when the humans were leaving Earth 20,000 years ago, Godzilla has visibly glowing red eyes. Later on, in the scene where the returning humans are engaging him, we can see that he has small but visible eyes if you pause at the right time, and they look kind of blue.
As to the atomic breath, the supplementary material that came in the early days of the movie's announcement had Godzilla using his atomic breath to melt part of the Himalayas after 2000 thermonuclear bombs were detonated to crack the tectonic plates in an attempt to trap him. Now, the shot we have of it has him blowing stuff up, but that's probably just human ships and whatnot being destroyed, so it makes sense they'd explode.
Given the prior information, I'd say that the beam is most likely a vaporization beam.
@Dragon King Ultrazero80, yes. I believe it has been confirmed that Anguirus, Rodan, Kamacuras, Orga, Dagahra (first seen in Rebirth of Mothra 2), and Dogora (from the 1964 movie by the same name) will appear. How much a role each monster will have remains unknown. They may be making minor appearances since the official plot says that the monsters appeared suddenly at the end of the 20th century. This means that we may/will see most of these monsters during the beginning of the film, assuming during the first few scenes we see the war between man and Kaiju before mankind flees Earth. Also, a new monster is being introduced. Servum, which originated from Godzilla cells. So yes, there will be more kaiju. The movie is called Godzilla Monster Planet/Godzilla Planet of the Monsters for a reason. It's not much of a monster planet if there aren't other monsters.
KingKaijuGojira, There's no confirmation that they will appear. Merely that they are part of the timeline. There were also many monsters that were part of the Kiryu timeline, but we didn't see all of them on screen. It doesn't mean we won't see any of them, but there's been no confirmation that we'll see them onscreen.
G. H. (Gman), That's understandable. It's nice that they're at least mentioned. I still think they'll make at least a small appearance in some manner. But the new monster Servum will still be in it. It was in the trailer.
it would be interesting if Godzilla does fight a giant Servum in the end. Someone mentioned that there are 2 different kinds of Servum, a flying type and an underground worm type. maybe a giant flying Servum would be cool to fight. It would be like Godzilla fighting another flying Godzilla like creature. that would be cool.
I feel like the Servums serve Godzilla, as he's essentially the King of the Giant monster ecosystem. In fact I feel like most of the Monsters either serve Godzilla or run, very few will try to fight. Regardless I can't wait to see this G in action, he's going to be insanely OP.
