A content embargo has been lifted recently for many outlets who got the chance to visit the Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters movie set while it was still filming. Many websites have begun to publish their reports and a ton of info has come out of it. We'll be breaking down the major points from all sources to get you up to speed on what was revealed and what to expect when Dougherty's Godzilla sequel arrives in theaters this May!
First up, we have an interview from Collider, where they sat down with Dougherty and discussed cameos by Mothra's Fairies and King Kong:
Collider: We had an Easter egg in the last film, of the fairies. Can we see anything extrapolated from that in this film? Are they growing? Going back to your statement in regards to religion, and, monster worship as it were.
DOUGHERTY: Yeah. I love the fairies in the original films. I don’t know how big they’ll be in this movie. They might make an appearance.
Collider: So in regards to the myth building, overall, are we going to see any reference to Kong in this movie?
DOUGHERTY: Yeah. He’s out there. I mean I love the idea of the two creatures crossing paths. Loved that idea since a kid, even in the original Godzilla vs Kong. For as cheesy as it was, the concept was brilliant. Who wouldn’t want to see that smack down? It makes sense that they would exist in the same universe I think.
Collider: With all the mythology and world building that’s going into this movie, and obviously you’ve given this a lot of thought, was there, with all the franchise considerations, was there like a Monarch bible already in place or are you writing it as you go?
DOUGHERTY: Ah, it wasn’t a bible. More like a pamphlet. It was more like a presentation video. I think the bible is constantly for Monarch being written with each film. You know, it changes. But I really did want this to be the first film that blow open the doors and lets us get a peek behind the curtain. Which is why we’re shooting in Monarch’s headquarters, in their underwater base. I think there was something really powerful about the idea of this secret organization, which has altruistic intentions and noble ideals about trying to understand our place in the world after these creatures have been discovered. So this will be the first film where you finally get to know some of these scientists on a deeply personal level and understand how they interact with each other and how they interact with the creatures. But yeah, well find these things behind the curtain.
