Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty shares video turntables on Instagram showcasing King Ghidorah from different angles.
A new Godzilla: King of the Monsters video has been posted, offering a detailed look at the film’s kaiju antagonist, King Ghidorah. Although not one of 2019’s financial hits, Godzilla: King of the Monsters delivered grand monster battles with some of the biggest names in kaiju history. Godzilla will return to do battle with another king in Godzilla vs. Kong next year.
Every major hero has an arch-nemesis, and it’s easy to say King Ghidorah is Godzilla’s. While the King of the Monsters has battled several notable foes over the years, such as Mechagodzilla and Destoroyah, King Ghidorah is his most recurring and iconic. Debuting in the 1964 movie Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster, King Ghidorah is an evil, powerful creature capable of wiping out entire civilizations. He was so strong, it took the combined power of Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan to drive him from the Earth. From there, Ghidorah would appear in a number of films, comics, and video games. It’s no surprise he appeared last year in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Ghidorah’s portrayal here was met with much acclaim. The character was shown to be immensely evil and powerful, just like almost all of his Japanese counterparts. In an interesting twist, each of the heads had their own distinct personality.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty has shared a King Ghidorah video to Instagram. The video is split into three turntables showing different angles of King Ghidorah. Check it out below.
The turntables do a good job showcasing Ghidorah’s detail. As evidenced in the film, Ghidorah was magnificently adapted from the Japanese movies. From the heads to the wings, Ghidorah was arguably Godzilla: King of the Monsters‘ biggest highlight. For those wanting more, Dougherty shared some concept art featured in The Art of Godzilla: King of the Monsters last year.
Many fans are probably wondering what’s next for Ghidorah in the MonsterVerse. The villain was killed at the end of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. However, a post-credits scene revealed one of Ghidorah’s heads was being kept. There are certainly plans to use this head for something, whether it be in Godzilla vs. Kong or a future MonsterVerse movie should the franchise continue. Either way, Ghidorah’s appearance in the 2019 film was satisfying enough if the character never appears again in this continuity. Ghidorah standing atop the volcano roaring has been immortalized as one of the most iconic scenes in the Godzilla franchise.
