Monsterverse Destroyah vs. Godzilla theories

Monsterverse Destroyah vs. Godzilla theories

Chris #TeamRodan

Jan-16-2019 8:29 PM

The theory / rumors surrounding Destroyah's potential inclusion in Legendary's Monsterverse has been a hot topic of discussion within the fandom for a while now. Rumors suggest Destroyah will be the actual enemy in Godzilla vs. Kong (2020), meaning Godzilla and Kong will need to team up to defeat him. The inclusion of Fire Godzilla in KOTM 2019 also acts as reference to Burning Godzilla from Godzilla vs. Destroyah.

My questions for you are:

1. Do you think the rumors are true and that Destroyah will be introduced?

2. If so, how do you think his origin will be explained?

3. What do you hope he will look like?

I don't think destroyah will be in the monsterverse.

Sorry to all who think he will be though

1. No

 

That pretty much covers all the other questions too

1. I hope not.

2. If they introduce something like the Oxygen Destroyer in this universe than I can see later on introducing a monster that is based off of that.

3. Don't care.

1. Yes, but not this soon. Maybe in the big finale movie of Phase 2 but not in GvK.

2. Yes

3. Hopefully even more demon like. Something like this design of destroyah made by InkVeil-Matter on DeviantArt.

still waiting for a good modern kaiju game. *sigh*

Phase 2, eh? I suppose optimism is important.

Haha yes, let's hope Legendary and WB continue the Monsterverse on and renew licenses for a phase 2. Not sure if Toho will bite, though.

Hey man, we still have 2 years to go and 2 movies to be released. Anything can happen at this point and hopefully Toho will see the huge potential of the Monsterverse and extend the contract. We just have to wait and see what happens.

I still haven't found where the contracts are expiring next year. But who knows. As for Destroyah I think it's way to early for something like that. Maybe after we've had a few more movies and some faction thinks that the monsters need to be taken care of permanently or something. But until then it's just to early for Destroyah, in my opinion. Oh and on the rights thing, as long as these movies continue to make boatloads of money I'm sure Toho will continue to let Legendary keep going.

Artemisace,
Here's the G-Fest panel with Shin Godzilla co-director/special effects director Shinji Higuchi where he explains that the contract with Toho ends in 2020: Click here.

Additionally here's an article from The Hollywood Reporter that mentions the contract ends in 2020. It's brought up at the bottom of the article: Click here.

@G.h.(Gman) Ah thank you, I kept wondering where this info was coming from. Either way I'm still sure that as long as the movies make big money Toho will continue to extend the rights if nothing else

In Godzilla rulers of Earth, Destroyah was created by some aliens using Crab DNA. In Godzilla V Destroyah, I'm pretty sure he was some sort of crustacean mutated by the oxygen destroyer. So If Destroyah were to be a giant mutant crab thing, that would make sense to me, since each of the Kaiju seem to be based off of an actual animal or animal genus.

Wait a sec... Destroyah is a giant crab?

Also, I think that Toho will probably eventually renew Legendary's lisensce, especially since their reboot films are good, but haven't attracted quite the amount of attention the Monsterverse has. I'm not saying the reboots were bad (Although Shin Godzilla was boring AF, complete waste of my time to watch despite how awesome Goji was in that movie) But the Reboots dont exactly have quite as massive a fan base as Legendary's monsterverse.

Cecegames02,
Yes, but Shin Godzilla made more money in Japan than Godzilla '14 or Skull Island combined in Japan. There's evidence to suggest that Toho would make more money making their own movies to a domestic audience than they would on Legendary's Monsterverse.

That doesn't mean they'll say no to more Legendary/WB Godzilla movies, but if they were to extend the contract, there would probably be new rules put in place so they could produce their own movies at the same time. And I imagine the price tag for Godzilla's license will go up as well.
