It's official, confirmed by director Michael Dougherty himself during San Diego Comic-Con - there will be more than the four announced Monsters (Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah and Godzilla) in Godzilla: King of the Monsters! Of course this has been rumored for months already, it was nice to receive some confirmation of the fact. What other Monsters Dougherty meant, he never clarified and it's unlikely they will be any other Toho-licensed Monsters, but probably some new Monsterverse creations like the MUTOs from the first Godzilla movie.
Although the additional Monster identities remain a mystery and are unlikely to be other Toho Monsters, it hasn't stopped fans from speculating on which Toho Monsters might have been secretly licensed and used for the upcoming film. The most frequently named seem to be Anguirus, Gigan and Baragon.
Despite being highly unlikely, the most probable Monster of those three to be included would be Anguirus, given the relatively easy way to explain his existence and the established alliance between Anguirus and Godzilla which formed over the years. But that's mere speculation at this point.
Going forward, we now know Godzilla 2 will feature more than the 4 confirmed Monsters, so the question we have for you is - If the additional Monsters are more Toho Monsters, which ones should be included? If not Toho Monsters, should these Monsters be more like the MUTOs or something completely new? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section!
