So that new image from Empire, of Godzilla looking at the submarine...I feel like that’s from the ending of the movie. From all the leaks, Godzilla never surfaces near it except for before the final fight to fire into the sky. The background isn’t as red as it would be in Mexico, so that’s ruled out. There looks like the remnants of a storm behind him, so I assume after Ghidorah is defeated the storm he creates dissipates. Just a guess.

Either that or it’s a newly included scene.

Most likely Mexico I'd imagine since color match from what we've seen likely Godzilla just saved their asses

So this just occurred to me. If Godzilla tames all the titans on this film does that mean anything past GvsK has to be Titans from space, man made Titans or do you think even Ghidorah couldn't wake all the Titans on Earth?

Well based on what we've seen already some Titans do adhere to a hierarchy like Godzilla and Mothra are the King and Queen, Kong's king on Skull Island and Rodan's chaotic neutral. Other pretty much do what ever they want the Mutos clearly didn't respect that otherwise they would have just stayed dormant and the Skullcrawlers still anatognized Skull Island even though Kong did keep them from spreading outta control. Main point is they're plenty of rogue monsters out there no matter who running things.

Would anyone like to discuss Baphomet, Typhoon, Abaddon, Methuselah, and the Bunyip?

The most concerning news from this article is the bit about them going for a “fun” vibe that isn’t as serious as the first. He compared it to the difference between Alien and Aliens; hopefully he’s actually right and we aren’t in for Marvel-movie comedy.

The best news is that there won’t be any “magical flying camera” shots. This pretty much rules out any of the action being filmed like the self-indulgent helicopter and boneyard sequences of Kong: Skull Island.

Not going to be a Marvel-esque comedy, by far. From all the leaks to what the people working on and acting in the movie have said, it takes itself seriously but not super overboard.

I like this directing idea. It allows the beasts to be in a much grander scope of display, when seen from our point of view.

Well we can conclude the Bunyip is in Australia.

Some ass jockey decided to not crop dust the crowd, dude let off some straight napalm and cleared a 20 ft radius and didn’t flinch, he just moved up closer. I prayed Sandra wouldn’t catch a whiff, talk about Endgame....just gross.

Damn, what an epic flow of new info. Spoilery as hell, but worth a read. Makes me even more excited than I already was :D
And of course, if anyone was still doubting the leaks at this point, those interviews are basically the final nail in the coffin. It's real alright.

Intrigued by the additional Titan info. Really interested to see how the "Bunyip" titan looks in particular.

If you're familiar enough with Aliens, that's not a Marvel style "fun" movie by any means, if anything, it's a classic 80s high octane fun. All the over jacked marine stuff in the beginning makes it fun without being funny. People mix fun and funny just because of word similarity.

Comparing it to Aliens is what scared you about the movie being too funny? Not the fact that Bradley Whitford's character is based on Rick from Rick and Morty?

Aside from that little tidbit (which doesn't concern me too much seeing as overall the film seems to have a fairly consistent tone), that was a neat read. No real point to point out how much it confirms the leaks, because that's basically beating a dead horse by this point. Nice to hear about the new Titans, as well.

I do wonder if he's leading us on about the Shobijin or if there really is some sort of cameo - as hieroglyphics depicting twin priestesses, or just a pair of twins in one shot like GMK, or what?

Yesterday, there was a 100% completed film showing, and a lot of details were vivid, which made me so excited that I didn't fall asleep all night.

In particular, I would like to talk about the soundtrack of the movie, mothra and Godzilla themes have appeared more than three times! And according to the change of the plot, they will have different tones. That's great.

I will answer your questions positively.

They shuttled between buildings, causing a storm that swept up vehicles on the ground. The camera focused on Milie. Millie tried to avoid the ruins and vehicles that were swept up by the storm. Mothra was gradually losing the battle, but it succeeded in using its own poison needle to defeat rodan.

Thanks for replying at all! It's a lot of questions! So, could you please tell us how many after credits scenes there are and what happens in them?

There are a lot of news and photo clips at the end of the film, and it was mentioned that Titan makes the ecosystem better (which proves Vera's point is correct).
It was mentioned that Skull Island was invaded by other monsters and that there was an ancient mural of Godzilla and Kong fighting.
Then there's Charles Dance and Ghidorah's head.

Godzilla's theme has appeared many times. Almost every time Godzilla appears, it plays different Melody of the theme. The most impressive thing is the revival of Godzilla and the defeat of King Ghidorah by fire godzilla.
