If they can be hand wavy about a nuclear powered dinosaur, they can do the same with a huge telepathic moth, a 3 headed space dragon and a supersonic flying pteranodon.


OH MY GOD THIS 1000X!

We're getting a giant moth goddess of peace and world destroying alien that looks like a hydra/dragon and a super sonic pterodactyl. And we got EMP parasite. If anything Legendary is taking few films to escalate into balls to the wall than Toho's first few Godzilla movie. At least Gojira only had Gojira, we already got 3 monsters in the first flick, and Ghidorah took 5 films to show up in GTTHM, we might get Ghidorah by movie 2.


and then theres kong
your source of self destruction

As I repeatedly told the same people now praising the movie, Ghidorah would have looked hilarious if they kept the Showa style wings and therefore it would not happen. At least there's one area of this movie where I'm glad I was right again.

I’m perfectly fine with Ghidorah’s wyvern method of walking. Keep in mind that, outside of GMK, Ghidorah almost never actually walks. He flies up, lands in one spot, and fights there. So walking was always going to be the area where they had the most creative license.

There were several other ways to make ghidra's wings look good without resorting to the usual bat wing type look. one would've been to have multiple single-fingered wings with membrane between them; so there's muscular support

I like ghidra in this movie, just felt a bit of a 'safe' route

He walks in his original film appearance, though.

You know, I sort of agree, as much as I love the design they settled on. I think the sort of classic wings have a distinctly alien look. I think they could have played up the alien aesthetic more. The MonsterVerse Ghidorah looks like a being of earth, based on the others. The concept art felt more alien as well.
