A new Monsterverse Titan has been revealed! During an unexpected panel by Legendary this weekend at the LA Comic Con, we were given our first look at "Camazotz." Sporting a bat-like appearance, Camazotz is said to appear in an upcoming Kong graphic novel.

"Camazotz" is prominent in Mayan mythology, where the figure is associated with sacrifice, night, and death. The literal translation of the name "Camazotz" in English is "Death Bat." Another notable feature is that Camazotz is commonly shown as having only a single eye in traditional Mayan descriptions.

Having a new Titan with a mythical background is nothing new for the Monsterverse. Many of the new Titans showcased in Godzilla: King of the Monsters have a history of being associated with cultural legends, so it's not surprising that Legendary is continuing this trend with Camazotz. The new Titan may also be paying homage to other classic kaiju, such as Bagorah, the Giant Bat, or Battra.

Are you excited that there's now a new mammal/flying Titan in the Monsterverse? Let us know your thoughts about Camazotz in the comments below!

Gotta be honest; That new titan looks pretty damn cool.

KaijuWorld #TeamGodzilla

I have to agree with macumbalove here, that design looks dope.

Camazotz is a badass name.

Kamoebas V.6 #TeamRodan

It looks like Battra,i like it.

Kamoebas V.6 #TeamRodan

It also looks like a combination of Battra and Otachi.

Xenotaris #TeamMothra

I'm sorry but it doesn't look anything like battra, but it does like a World of Warcraft bat

RR44 #TeamGodzilla

I think that would look sick on the big screen. Too bad its in a comic.

G. H. (Gman) #TeamGhidorah

Oct-13-2019 1:15 PM

You guys do realize Battra and his name has nothing to do with a bat right? His name is actually an amalgam of the Japanese words for "battle" and "Mothra".

Xenotaris #TeamMothra

Oct-13-2019 1:21 PM

@G.H. (Gman) I agree. Battra is a butterfly, not a bat.

Xenotaris #TeamMothra

Oct-13-2019 1:24 PM

 I guess calling it Butterflyra doesn't sound as cool as Battra, But in all seriousness this new titan looks just like those giant bats you fly around on in World of Warcraft in the undead lands.

G. H. (Gman) #TeamGhidorah

Oct-13-2019 1:24 PM

He's a divine moth--Like Mothra.

Xenotaris #TeamMothra

Oct-13-2019 1:27 PM

Oh, looks like I made some errors when describing Battra in the gojiverse

G. H. (Gman) #TeamGhidorah

Oct-13-2019 1:30 PM

He's essentially the same creature as Mothra, merely described as the "Black Mothra". Battra is also sometimes referred to as "Battle Mothra" which is what his name is derived from.

Xenotaris #TeamMothra

Oct-13-2019 1:32 PM

Ohhhhhhhh!!!!

Gomi: Ninja Monster #TeamMothra

I dunno, I'll have to see some more of this one before I make any judgments, but it seems promising enough. Name's cool, I'm looking forward to the explanation as to how it flies with those ratty wings though. Also, does no one remember the Giant Bat from Godzilla: The Series? This looks like a meaner, older version of that.

It looks cool, but it's too bad that it is restricted to a comic. Hopefully, it gets some screentime. (Maybe in a fight between it and possibly Rodan or Kong, perhaps?)

Thats a bat looking titan that's very cool 

TheLazyFish #TeamGodzilla

Oct-13-2019 7:03 PM

Looks cool, but seeing as how bat creatures are usually one shot in... everything... I don't think the future is very bright for this one...

Stealthybison

This sounds like an awesome edition! I'm familiar with his mythological basis enough that i'm interested in how they interpret Camazotz. Although, like TheLazyFish said, he may be a one and done. I hope not!

Not the most original idea, but overall I'm pretty happy with most of the Monsterverse's original titans.

really n0ice, I like bats.
