Complete agreement! While there was a lot of stock footage, and the appearance of the new Muto was sprase, I like how they actually feel like a part of the franchise now, rather then a random mook of the week.


Kinda funny that they now have more appearances than, say, Biollante or Spacegodzilla. That's pretty good for an American-only Kaiju.

Orochi i assume is one of the names on the screens as for Manda he was supposedly in the newspaper clippings during credits.

Thanks! That one bugged me. It wasn't named in the novel an i couldn't remember it from the movie.

I'm guessing the art book will give us a better look at some of the other monster concepts. At least I hope so.

The MUTO was nice to see, hope it shows up in Godzilla vs Kong.

Hey, does anyone know what the Kraken looks like? Or the Leviathan?

The leviathan is only stated to be from Loch Ness in the Novel, nothing more. But the Kraken is given a fairly good description. From the Novel...

"They had learned quite a bit about Kraken. X-rays, sonic scans, DNA analysis, had built a picture of what he must be like. His central brain cavity was enormous, far larger than it needed to be to control his body, suggesting a certain amount of intelligence, not unlike his distant cousins, the octopuses – although unlike octopuses and squids, his head was protected by a dense, curving cone of shell. He had dozens of smaller brains associated with his limbs. Like octopoids, he could also change the color and pattern of his skin and shell; when they found him, he had been virtually invisible. They pinpointed his location by radiation signature and his bio-sonic emission. He had multiple hearts, and there was good evidence that he could regenerate limbs and, in fact, virtually any part of his body."

Not the artbook, someone uploaded a video on YouTube thumbing through it and there’s nothing save for a depiction of the bowing scene and everyone’s just a silhouette.

Unfortunately, nope. Our best hope is whenever Legendary allows their team to update the website to include the other Titans. When that'll be? No idea.

This sounds so cool, I was going to say it sounds like Gezora, but this sounds so much cooler.

Behemoth for life.

I really hope we see these other monsters show up in later installments, but I'm not holding my breath.

I'm sure we'll see them in GvK, Maybe as fodder for Godzilla and Kong.

No, the New Muto is basically a stylized Femuto instead of Bayformers from Aftershock.

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.

Ah, ok. I knew that it looked a little different, but I didn’t know if that one that Godzilla fights in the comic was the same design,

I've noticed this, when they make an original monster to be a stand in of a character that is too normal or obscure for the GA to know who it is (Example Komunga, they'd just see it as a giant spider and not know why fans are geeking out, why waste money getting the rights?) they go the extra mile to give them something to make them an original character in their own right like Mother Longlegs.

That's one of the things I love about the Monsterverse, they give every monster something equally cool to the next. Feels godly and Lovecraftian
