The plot synopsis for Godzilla vs. Kong 2 supports the theory that SpaceGodzilla is the movie’s villain and a major figure in Titan War.
Details of the history of Godzilla vs Kong 2 supports the theory that SpaceGodzilla is the next MonsterVerse villain. Concept art not used for Godzilla vs. Kong led to a number of theories about the ancient War of the Titans. Some posited from the artwork that SpaceGodzilla was the true villain of the conflict and that he would return in a sequel.
As of now, there is no official word on who Godzilla and Kong will be facing off against in the untitled MonsterVerse movie. After the sequel was confirmed to be in development, several Too kaiju emerged as possible options that Legendary could choose for. Godzilla vs. Kong villain. Among the names thrown into the hat were Destoroyah, Biollante, Gigan, Orga, Hedorah, and of course, SpaceGodzilla. Despite appearing in only one Toho film, the main antagonist of Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla has remained a viable candidate for a future villainous role in Legendary’s MonsterVerse franchise. Easily recognizable by the giant white crystals on his shoulders, SpaceGodzilla is an alien being born from an incident in which Godzilla’s DNA was mutated by a black hole.
Not used Godzilla vs. Kong Concept art showing Godzilla and Kong seemingly teaming up in a fight with a Godzilla-like flying Titan led to a common theory that SpaceGodzilla was hiding somewhere in the MonsterVerse’s Hollow Earth. It was suspected that if that was the case, she might emerge as his next opponent. Now, it’s been confirmed by a plot synopsis that Godzilla vs Kong 2 will see the two titular titans fight against a “colossal threat hidden within our world” Y “explore the mythical battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings”. It is worth noting that the revelation that Godzilla vs Kong 2 The story will involve an ancient Titan War and a hidden monster from the Hollow Earth fits with the SpaceGodzilla theory.
Was SpaceGodzilla the real villain of Titan War?
If the theory turns out to be true, it would have massive implications for the movie and go a long way towards expanding the MonsterVerse’s mythos while also providing a new understanding of what really happened during the War on the Titans. The aforementioned concept art suggested that Titan War didn’t end with Godzilla driving the Kongs out of the Hollow Earth; instead, it implied that the two opposing sides in the War of the Titans might have come together to fight a common enemy. If that’s really what happened all those millennia ago, that would mean that SpaceGodzilla was the true villain of the MonsterVerse’s old Titan War. And since he looks like Godzilla, it may be that he actually instigated the war by causing a case of mistaken identity.
Adapting SpaceGodzilla with this as his MonsterVerse backstory would help make him a compelling and fitting antagonist for Godzilla vs Kong 2. The prospect of Godzilla and Kong having to join forces to stop the same threat that challenged their ancestors in the original Titan War is certainly an exciting scenario to entertain. Such a fight would give both monsters a chance to end a conflict that has gone unresolved for thousands of years.
