Shin-Gojira set out to change the way audiences viewed the King of all Monsters and created a completely new origin story for Gojira, once again rebooting the franchise for Toho in Japan. In Shin-Gojira, Godzilla was a marine organism that mutated as a result of nuclear waste infecting the local ecosystem. This Godzilla was not a pre-existing prehistoric creature like the 1954 classic or Legendary's 2014 Hollywood adaptation, nor was it a mutated dinosaur like later Toho installments. This Godzilla was completely new and although the concept was innovative for the franchise, it was met with some hostility by some fans, which was to be expected after rebooting and rewriting mythological history for a film franchise as big as Godzilla. However, despite the early criticism and skepticism, it seems as though Shin-Gojira has managed to capture the imagination and appreciation of most of its fan base, ringing it in as one of the most powerful and influential Godzilla films to be released to date.

In Shin-Gojira, Godzilla also evolved through various forms as the film progressed. On-screen, we witnessed five main forms, a larva / tadpole like form where Godzilla was merely a snake / slug looking monster, a slightly enhanced and larger version of the precious, with two legs and then finally the massive behemoth witnessed in the film's trailer.

Following this stage we also witnessed smaller humanoid creatures coming out of Godzilla at the end of the film. While many have had theories as to what these creatures were, it seems that these creatures were in fact collectively Godzilla's next form. (Not offspring, as some had thought.)

In a page from The Art of Shin Godzilla art book, concept art depicts the final stage of development - one that has Godzilla spawn a rather Humanoid looking Hybrid army to better combat Humanity. Thanks to our friends at Gormaru Island, we have a look at what this Humanoid Godzilla creature would have looked like:

UPDATE: The artwork depicts actual concept close-ups of creatures featured in Shin-Gojira, not unused concepts. Article updated.

Oh my, that's quite chilling! This human form Godzilla has definitely captured my taste, but what I find most interesting is the single eye socket upon its head!

Reminiscent of a Cyclopean being?! 

Quite a revealing post Chris! Upvoted!

No, I wouldn't. This creation looks nothing like Godzilla and I would not have accepted it.

This could be a Neomorph in Alien: Covenant, but Godzilla??? :D By the way, the concept of the creature itself is awesome.

I will admit,I like the design,it reminds me of a xenomorph.

I like the design but not for Godzilla himself. Maybe for those things you see Frozen at the end. Just don't keep ten running around that size/design long or its gonna feel like the '98 flick. Need giant monsters in out giant monster movies.

That's disturbing.

Updated OP apparently these are not unused concepts but actual concepts which made it into the film. How creepy and awesome!

These are the creatures sprouting from Godzilla's tail at the end of the film. The Art of Godzilla seems to confirm my theory--These creatures are Godzilla's next form, collectively.

I like it, but it doesn't really feel like Godzilla. If they were another monster or even his offspring, that would be acceptable, but not as Godzilla himself.

 

The head design looks a bit like the Future Predators from Primeval...

AdminGodzillaDec-30-2016 10:19 AM

I don't like the offspring idea, and never did. Although they mentioned this Godzilla could propagate on its own, I'm glad they never show it and went with the idea that his next form was multiple, humanoid Godzillas splitting off.

Because he's the perfect evolutionary organism in this film there's no reason he couldn't evolve into another Godzilla-design creature, if his body deemed it a necessary, evolutionary step.

Also reminds me of the"River Ghost" in PREDATORS ;)

Those are both incredibly disturbing and creepy at the same time. I love it. I like the concept: Godzilla spawning an army of humanoid Godzillas to fight humanity. It is cool and unprecedented but it still fits into Godzilla's character. Throughout the franchise, we have seen Godzilla's cells (commonly referred to as G-cells) be used in a variety of ways. Many of those ways resulted in monstrous mutations. Biollante, SpaceGodzilla, Megaguirus, Orga and even the Millennium series incarnation of MechaGodzilla (G-cells were used for the bio-computer that help operate MechaGodzilla, which is why he went wild). This is just another example of how Godzilla's cellular makeup is incredibly flexible. Shin Gojira as a whole is an example of that. I hope we see these Humanoid Godzillas in the next movie.

KingKaijuGojira- I'll be alright with these creatures, as long as there's a normal Godzilla in the movie too.

This is a fascinating Article. I, myself, have not yet seen the entire movie, but I have a theory as to how they could continue the series with the "New Creature". I call it a "New Creature" because, in my opinion, That's what it is. My Opinion is, That the Creature in the Film is NOT the true Godzilla/Gojira, But a wanna be Creature attempting the steal the crown away from the "King of the Monsters". This "New Creature" is an Ancient Alien Life Form (much like the Shapeshifting Creature in "The Thing") Mutated by the Nuclear waste in the ecosystem (as mentioned in the article above), Possibly with a little Goji DNA thrown in to the mix. This is where they could Tie-in The original 1954 movie in with the new Franchise (the remains of the Original Godzilla/Gojira are still at the bottom of Tokyo Bay). And No one really explained where the second Godzilla came from in The follow up "Godzilla Raids Again". So, There is another Monster out there. I think "Shin Gojira/ Godzilla Resurgence" is Setting up for a return of the one true "King of the Monsters". A battle for the Crown. And all of Humanity hangs in the balance.

If there is to be a (n inevitable) sequel, I don't think it will revolve around these creatures in the least.

And Arnold Schwarzenegger thought Predator was one ugly mofo

MemberTitanosaurusDec-30-2016 1:14 PM

G-Forum Senator Ultrazero, Of course there would be a normal Godzilla in the movie. It's not a Godzilla movie without Godzilla.

I'm with Gman2887  on this one. but it does comfirm something I have wondered.. did Shin G eat people in his second form ? I mean.. where else would the humanoid forms come from ?

Jamaal

MemberMothra LarvaeDec-31-2016 4:38 PM

I could see these beings being in a sequel in addition to, but not in the place of, Godzilla. I could also see the fourth form Godzilla evolving somewhat, as long as he looks like Godzilla. Maybe closer to the ShodaiGoji, which would be basically a move from concept drawings to final form for the 1954 design.

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaDec-31-2016 5:40 PM

RR44,
That's like asking why did it take on the form of a retro-saurus looking creature. The characters explained earlier in the film that it was the perfect evolutionary organism, so as long as there was air and water it could evolve into whatever its body perceived as the dominant life form.

In the end Godzilla was being beat by humanity, or a collective of humans working together to achieve a certain goal. Since humanity was beating him, his body tried to also become a collective of humanoids. Basically it's a symbolic epilogue--Anno is merely stating that the dominant life form on the planet is humanity when they work together.

MemberBaragonDec-31-2016 7:10 PM

Gman2887.. I guess I did not think of it that way.. but you have a good point.. but for Gojira to evolve in such a way.. would indicate a massive intelligence at work.. and I am not sure if he has that in this version... but I could be wrong.. and I've been wrong before. But how does it know to do that ? considering it was a marine life form to begin with? unless the approach is from a Darwinian concept of fish to man type evolution.. which just turns me off to the whole notion that that's what is going on in this film.. partially because I don't believe in evolution the way that it's taught.
