The first teaser for Godzilla: King of the Monsters finally dropped yesterday, and while Warner Bros. are evidently still holding off on the big reveals – namely, our first look at the lizard’s next set of gigantic foes – we do get a tense little scene of actress Millie Bobby Brown trying to get in contact with the mysterious government agency known as Monarch, which was first introduced in 2014’s Godzilla.
To coincide with the release of this footage, the typically secretive fictional organization has given members of the public an early glimpse at their monster-tracking activity with the launch of the new Monarch Sciences website. Though the site certainly makes you work for the info, you do get to see the current locations of each of the monsters in the upcoming film, as well as some illuminating character profiles.
Based on the following information obtained from the page, the three-headed King Ghidorah seems like the greatest threat of the three for both mankind and the Big G, though you probably wouldn’t want to cross paths with Mothra or Rodan on a bad day, either.
MOTHRA – Height: 52 feet, Wingspan: 803 feet
“Pupal DNA samples suggest a remarkable, multi-stage evolution. On reaching adulthood, Mothra’s gigantic thorax is capable of emitting beta-wave bioluminescence which can be projected through the intricate patterns on its wings and weaponized into blinding ‘god rays’. As one of the deadliest and most beautiful natural phenomena in Earth’s history, no wonder this devastating guardian angel was worshipped as a goddess by the ancient human civilizations blessed to witness her.”
RODAN – Height: 154 feet, Wingspan: 871 feet
“Rodan’s wings are wrapped around its body in stasis, but our cryptos estimate a wingspan big enough to create a sonic thunderclap capable of leveling entire cities as it flies overhead. RF-Capture scans reveal that Rodan’s skin is not made of rock, but does have an outer dermis of sharp volcanic sediment collected from centuries of dormancy. Sci-ops theorizes the vulcanized appearance of its skin may be an evolutionary trait developed as a form of camouflage against mountain or large rock formations. Truly, a Titan forged in fire.”
KING GHIDORAH – Height: 521 feet
“Monster Zero’s dermal layer is gilded with trace amounts of aurum (See Ark Record # 73.126). Metallurgical studies theorize the scales act as a conductor capable of carrying bioelectrical currents through the creature’s body. Injuries have been discovered on several locations on the beast’s body, reminiscent of claw and scorch marks. Exo-Forensics are currently investigating.
Muscle tendons on the wings are so hyper-tensile that their massive aerodynamics could generate hurricane-force winds when in flight. Coupled with its body’s electro-receptor molecular biology capable of conducting electrical currents, water vapor in the air would be heated at extreme levels creating its own localized storm system as it travels. Simply put, if Monster Zero were to fly again, the stratosphere would be torn open by an otherworldly tempest of thunder and lightning our sky has never seen. Cryptolinguistics has analyzed translations of every worldwide case study of Monster Zero in the Monarch database across tens of thousands of years. The ancients called it Ghidorah.”
From the sounds of it, the titular kaiju of Godzilla: King of the Monsters may have his work cut out for him when the film hits theaters on May 31st, 2019.
