In the history of the Godzilla series, it's tough to gauge the strength of each huge creature, as the conflicts between monsters require both brute strength and fighting strategies to come out on top.
About five years have passed in Godzilla: King of the Monsters (out May 31, 2019) since the events depicted in 2014's Godzilla. Michael Dougherty went into some detail about one of those monsters, Rodan, calling him a "winged A-bomb".
"Rodan's been kind of a sidekick character, but I've always had a soft spot for him". With human characters played by Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, and Millie Bobby Brown, who find themselves caught up in a grand conspiracy to harness the power of Godzilla and his kind as they begin to reawaken.
The new photos certainly make Godzilla out to be a threat, as one depicts the giant lizard effectively trying to light the sky on fire with his atomic breath.
That ability to vomit out a nuclear blue flame came in handy, with the king of all monsters eventually cementing his place at the top of the food chain with a kiss of death that wrapped up the MUTO threat for good. "Not without giving away too much", he laughs.
Entertainment Weekly has released the first look at Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Another announced film in the MonsterVerse is Godzilla vs. Kong, pitting the monster against the star of Kong: Skull Island.
"It's not like we're bending over backwards to introduce Kong, but there's definitely some bread crumbs", he said.
Plot details revealed for Godzilla: King of the Monsters include that Vera Farmiga's Dr. Emma Russell is a scientist working for Monarch, and her daughter Madison, who is portrayed by Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, get kidnapped by a "a mysterious organization, with their own plans for the creatures". The director went on to say that he may even be more powerful than Godzilla.
