Oh boy. Can't wait to see what it will be used for.

Holy Crap it's back. The infamous weapon that killed the original and spawned his ultimate enemy is back. This just got serious.
Aug-16-2017 7:32 AM
I felt it was coming back once I saw the tweet. You just don't tease that in the Godzilla fandom.
Aug-16-2017 12:15 PM
"Would it be used against Godzilla or another beast?" Or be the creation of Destoroyah!
Aug-16-2017 12:40 PM
I have a feeling that Dr. Serizawa is going to introduce this weapon.
Aug-17-2017 4:47 AM
I don't know why it would be needed.. it just does not fit with the theme of this series of movies. The original had it.. because they needed to kill Godzilla... but this series is not the same as the original. I don't see how it would fit in to the story... imo.

Well the only way I see it is through a possible way to exit the film and create an introduction to GVKK. Im sure we will have to wait until the end of the movie to see a way it might be introduced to start a premise for GvKK? I mean the world would have to press their governments somehow to get rid of these monsters, and that's possibly how they introduce the Oxygen Destroyer. There are 4 monsters wrecking havoc in the world and their cities. Im sure there is room to introduce the idea or at least the blue prints for the OD.
similar to what they did in the prequels for star wars, they had that hologram of the deathstar briefly showing. maybe a fun way to introduce the OD in that way?

They could possibly have to use it on Ghidorah, and this in turn makes Destroyah. That would give GvK a big enemy to fight.

Wow that adds a huge plot point. So wee have 4 monsters and and the Oxygen Destroyer? Slow down legendary.

Not to be a killjoy, but what I read from the original article was the guy asked Dougherty if the Oxygen Destroyer was going to either make a cameo or be a major plot point, and all Dougherty said was "Yes." The way I read it, Dougherty only confirmed the OD will be featured in the film somehow, either as a cameo or a plot device (provided he wasn't just screwing with the guy).

^I've reached out to AICN for clarification on that as well. Interestingly all I got was the same vague "yes" as a reply. It's entirely possible I got it wrong, but to be fair Harry does emphasize "plot device". Still waiting for another reply.
Aug-17-2017 1:11 PM
Well it is still interesting to throw that in there. The OD is only referenced a couple times in the series after Gojira. Literally like 3 movies ever mention it and only does it ever become a plot point was Godzilla Vs. Destroyah. So if it does come back, it would be neat to see it used with modern special FX. Imagine it being used on King Ghidorah, with his skeleton showing and all through his skin.
But even tho I doubt Destroyah would ever come into this series of monsterverse, I doubt king kong could seriously stand up to a kaiju like that. that thing took on Godzilla when he was at one of his most powerful forms. king kong had the strange power-up from the lighting, and still had a tough time!!! Im sure we are all agree that king kong wouldn't stand a chance against Destroyah. plus its cheaper for Legendary to make there own MUTO.

I'm still wondering about the monster that Goodman's character refers to regarding the attack on the USS Lawton.. it predates Godzilla's awakening.. and Godzilla avoided the ships in Edward's film.. some my question is this.. are they saving Ghidorah for a skull island battle which will involve G and KK (the last cave painting suggests that this may be the case) and.. since Ghidorah is frozen in ice.. currently.. will there be another Kaiju in this next movie that we don't know about.. and will it be the one who attacked the Lawton? I mean.. having the other two.. Rodan and Mothra.. makes sense for King of the monsters.. but.. I'm betting that Legendary is gonna introduce a new Kaiju in the second film.. Goodman's monster. and the after credits scene (you know they'll have one).. will reveal Ghidorah in the ice.. and the ice is melting and cracking and we see movement. <theory only
well.. how about it?

Jordan Vogt-Roberts revealed in the audio commentary for Kong: Skull Island that it was actually Godzilla that sank the Lawton. It was going to be explicitly stated in the movie, but Vogt-Roberts thought it was "too on the nose" and wanted audiences to figure it out for themselves.
Also, there's no chance that King Ghidorah isn't appearing in a major role in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. He's already been teased and hyped up for the film, and the official synopsis even says he will be fighting Godzilla in the film.
Aug-18-2017 4:57 AM
Not to mention that the DVD extras for Godzilla (2014) already had Vivienne Graham telling us that Godzilla was responsible for attacks on ships in the 1940s.
Godzilla wasn't solely awakened in 1954, that's just one of the times that humans were explicitly responsible.
On that note, you guys think the Oxygen Destroyer could've been drawn up during the Pan-Pacific Proving Grounds as a potential alternative to the nuclear detonations that General MacArthur had in mind?
Aug-18-2017 11:47 AM
^I think it definitely has been option. But I bet that General MacArthur knew that the OD would be way more destructive than the nuclear option.
In 1954 movie Gojira, Dr. Serizawa mentioned that the Oxygen Destroyer was much more powerful that the A-Bomb. That is why he didn't want to reveal it to the world. It was so powerful that it killed Godzilla! So keeping in mind what the OD can do, Im sure it may have been an option in 1954 in this monsterverse, but thought it might be to destructive by Monarch and MacArthur.

yea, I'll take this as a grain of salt.

If this is real, then my excitement levels are through the roof right now.

The oxygen destroyer is one of the main problems I have had with the Godzilla franchise in the past. I don't believe it could harm Godzilla. I hope they hit the monsters with the oxygen destroyer and megaton nukes and everything fails to harm the titans, they survive without a scratch. A great part of the Godzilla formula is watching fake and real weapons proven futile against him as he destroys buildings. I have written off any Godzilla Ghidorah and Rodan past deaths or wounds in my book and I hope the oxygen destroyer doesn't do shit but make Destroyah for Godzilla and King Kong to team up and fight. Seeing those two Kaiju kings kill Destroyah would be the best ending ever in 2020. Imagine Ghidorah down to battle Destroyah if in KOTM Ghidorah submitted to Godzilla to later return to help Godzilla and King Kong's team and kick Destroyah's ass!

Sounds like you completely missed the narrative point of the oxygen destroyer.
