I think she may be the person behind the most knowledge of Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah.

With maybe the inclusion of her knowing that where they can be found.

Nice, great pick.  Movie certainly is turning into quite the ensemble piece.  Funny enough I'm re-reading through the old Marc Cerasini Godzilla books and it occurred to me just how every book was just jam-packed full of incidental characters, but managed to remain very enjoyable and good on the kaiju action.  I'd like to hope they strike a similarly good balance here.

Very likely, that's how Kong was, and it worked.

diversity in talent.. makes for a potentially great story line. I really want a good story line in this movie. I think Ghidorah is going to be referred to as a mythological creature.. with a grand back story. BTW.. did anyone else notice the 3 headed Transformer in the latest trailer? talk about stealing a concept from the kaiju world.
