Two days ago Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty tweeted an image of the Oxygen Destroyer. The prop looked like the spitting image of the same device used in to kill the original Godzilla in Ishiro Honda's 1954 masterpiece. Since then fans have speculated whether or not the legendary weapon will be a mere Easter Egg or a notable plot device.
According to Harry Knowles at Ain't it Cool News, Dougherty has told him that the device will factor in to the movie's storyline.
"I asked Mike Dougherty if the OXYGEN DESTROYER was making a Cameo or was an actual PLOT DEVICE for his upcoming GODZILLA movie, which I still hope is GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS. And Mike gave me a firm answer of "YES"!"
If what Knowles says is true, could fans see the Oxygen Destroyer detonate once again? Would it be used against Godzilla or another beast? And who is in posession of it? MONARCH? Jonah Alan, teased in the viral MONARCH timeline? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
