At the beginning of the week a promotional statue of the 2017 Godzilla was teased for fans. Twitter recently exploded with multiple angles of the full reveal.
The Godzilla of the upcoming anime movie Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters first appears in the year 2030. Humanity had been at war with monsters since 1999, as a result of Earth's evolving environment, but they had never met a force like Godzilla. SciFi Japan reports that Godzilla is, "the largest life form ever recorded and possesses unique body tissue integrated with metal-like muscle fibers, which can generate a strong electromagnetic charge, to support his massive weight. The end result of natural selection on Earth, he originated from plant-based life and has gone on to survive 20,000 long years as a super-evolved living organism." No word yet on if radioactivity will factor in to Godzilla's origin as well.
Below are images of the 2 meter tall statue, emphasizing the plant-influenced design:
