*WARNING: THE FOLLOWING POST INCLUDES A SPOILER FOR GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS. IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED KING OF THE MONSTERS AND WANT TO REMAIN SPOILER FREE, THEN STOP READING OR YOU WILL MAKE BIG G VERY UNHAPPY.*
OK, so by now you will know at least one very important thing about Godzilla: King of the Monsters – there is an after credit scene. If you sat through the very long credits, you may be asking yourself ‘was it worth it?’
You may also be asking yourself, ‘what was the end credit scene all about?’
Hopefully I can shed some light on what you saw.
To recap, after the credits have concluded, a new scene opens up with Colonel Alan Jonah (Charles Dance) and his soldiers stood in a warehouse looking at a lifeless head of King Ghidorah. Jonah then indicates that he will take the remains for an undisclosed purpose, before the scene fades to black.
So, what does it all mean?
Well, this scene appears to be setting up the potential for yet another monster in a future movie – Mecha-King Ghidorah! Mech-King Ghidorah is a mechanically modified version of King Ghidorah, who has battled Godzilla in the original Japanese movies.
Presumably, Jonah and his team will bring Ghidorah back to life through science and cyborg wizardry, utilising what remains of the monster following his titanic showdown with Godzilla. It’s unclear if Mecha-King Ghidorah will appear in 2020s Godzilla vs. King Kong, so expect the character to be the star of yet another MonsterVerse movie.
