At this point, Spoiler Godzilla would be the most accurate and current name for this version of Godzilla from the upcoming sequel, but unfortunately it is not. Since we unveiled the new Jakks Pacific Godzilla figure images and revealed what looked to be Burning Godzilla - fans were polarized by the acknowledgment of this information.
Since those images went live and since our report went live we now have further clarification on the actual name for this version of Godzilla. Thanks to ToyArk, we have a list of corresponding names for the Jakks figures and it has been revealed that the name for this Burning Godzilla is actually referred to as Fire Godzilla:
Names and classifications for Godzilla's various incarnations are important. This also helps to separate the association between this and Burning Godzilla from Godzilla vs. Destroyah - meaning Godzilla's Fire state is not indicative of him internally combusting, like that of Burning Godzilla. In our previous report we exclusively revealed that Godzilla becomes Fire Godzilla by Mothra transferring her power to him in order to take out Ghidorah.
Until we hear otherwise, this Godzilla will now be referred to as Fire Godzilla. Let us know what you think of this name in the comments!
