MechaGodzilla is reportedly hiding in plain sight in the Godzilla Vs Kong trailer. Legendary and Warner Bros. released the first trailer for the highly anticipated movie this morning and people are panicking. The images promise a colossal battle between two of the most iconic monsters of all time, while also looking pretty fantastic. The TV spots released last week were just a tease Godzilla to Kong has to offer, and luckily we won’t have to wait too long to see the action unfold, as the film hits theaters on March 26 and premieres on HBO Max.
In the first seconds of the Godzilla to Kong trailer, viewers think they’ve seen a brief glimpse of MechaGodzilla. The monster leaves a huge path of destruction, although it has not been confirmed whether it is really the iconic Kaiju character. The trailer also appears to show someone driving the monster. A January 2020 toy leak seemingly confirmed the inclusion of MechaGodzilla in the movie, so it’s really only a matter of time before we see some footage.
MechaGodzilla was first introduced in Toho’s 1974 film Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla, with the monster’s backstory. According to the movie, aliens invented the mechanical monster to fight against Godzilla. However, in later movies it was said that the monster was made by humans to fight Godzilla as well. MechaGodzilla’s idea and design are actually from the 1967 Toho movie King Kong escapes, with Mechani-Kong. The mechanical Kong came first, but its legacy pales in comparison to the King of the Monsters taking over the design. Maybe Mechani-Kong plays a part Godzilla Vs Kong too, although that seems like a pretty big piece.
To date, MechaGodzilla has surfaced in every era of Godzilla. The character is one of five kaiju that appear in all eras. However, it is unclear what the mechanical sample will do Godzilla to Kong. Until now, the focus has mainly been on Kong and Godzilla, which is more than enough to keep fans excited. Theories are starting to emerge among fans who believe that Kong and Godzilla will join forces to defeat MechaGodzilla, meaning director Adam Wingard’s words about a winner revealed at the end of the film remain true. When Godzilla and Kong team up to defeat MechaGodzilla, they both win.
Godzilla to Kong takes place when Kong and his protectors embark on a perilous journey to find his true home. But they unexpectedly find themselves on the path of an enraged Godzilla, who is cutting a trail of destruction around the world. The epic clash between the two titans, sparked off by unseen forces, is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep in the core of the Earth. Could the rise of MechaGodzilla be part of the mystery reveal? For now we will just have to wait. You can watch the trailer for Godzilla to Kong above, thanks to the Warner Bros. Pictures.
