In the latest MonsterVerse hit “Godzilla 2,” the giant lizard of the same name battles the three-headed Ghidorah. The golden dragon disturbs the natural order of the earth because it is out of this world. This origin could still be important …
Warning, spoilers for “Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters” will follow!
The land in Warner’s MonsterVerse is also inhabited by numerous ancient giants, the so-called Titans. Most of them sleep a lot, others gradually wake up in “Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters.” Godzilla and company are also known as the first gods on earth who lived in harmony with the ancestors of man millions of years ago. However, a creature falls off the net. Why as Monarch scientist Dr. Ilene Chen (Zhang Ziyi) determines, with the help of various historical records, that the three-headed dragon Ghidorah did not come from the earth at all, but rather fell from the sky millions of years ago.
Ghidorah, the alien
According to records, archrival Godzillas landed on our planet in the early stages of Earth’s evolution. Various interpretations of ancient civilizations such as the hydra from Greek mythology date back to Ghidorah. His story as an alien who came to Earth to wreak havoc is deeply rooted in classic Japanese monster movies.
Ghidorah had his first appearance in “Frankenstein’s Monster in the Fight Against Ghidorah” from 1964. There he came to earth with a meteorite and terrorized the population. Ghidorah’s backstory is finally expanded upon in “Orders of the Dark.” It turns out that Ghidorah was controlled by the alien race of Alphas and sent to Earth to prepare for an invasion.
Aliens in “Godzilla 3”?
If MonsterVerse takes a similar path as the Japanese squad, we can possibly set ourselves up for crazy alien adventures. It’s also quite possible that Warner ignores this section and instead establishes people as the masterminds behind a new threat from Ghidorah. This assumption also matches the “Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters” credits scene, in which eco-terrorist Jonah Alan (Charles Dance) snatches the severed head of the Titan under the nail. So we firmly hope that the three-headed monster will return.
It remains to be seen if Ghidorah’s regeneration ability is activated with the help of the head or even if it is cloned. We could even get to see the known Mecha King Ghidorah from “Godzilla: Duel of the Megasaurs”, a cyborg that evolved from the remains of Ghidorah.
“Godzilla 3” has yet to be announced. If Warner decides to end the franchise after “Godzilla Vs. Kong,” the giant lizard should have to deal with a new Ghidorah, because otherwise, why would this beast have been brought back any other way?
“Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters” is currently screening in theaters in Germany.
