    Adam Wingard tweeted a few times about Hedorah just days before he was announced as the Godzilla vs Kong director, and I wouldn't be surprised if that was the kaiju they team up to fight. Two defenders of nature fighting the personification of pollution makes the most sense thematically tbh.

    Isn't Godzilla looking repulsive in Shin Godzilla's pretty much the point though? They were trying to bring out the original theme of him having keloid scars and burns from the 54 film and ramped it up a notch here to further present the theme of radiation affecting wildlife in general in a horrific manner. He's not supposed to look majestic or "good" as his other versions because this movie isn't about that kind of Godzilla. This is meant to closely evoke the original which was already a dark and horrific film in it's own right.

    Wait I thought Godzilla vs Kong was just gonna be them fighting? Like this was the epic rematch to get a true victor.
    Yeah pretty much.
    Is there a confirmed or approximate price on the ghidorah like Godzilla?

    Yeah, I guess it's the biggest thing they've ever tried to make.

    True. But I’m just not sure cause of the wings. Like they just don’t have many options. Same with Rodan.

    It’s practically a small clip of the film right there. I need to go to the cinema again.

    Monarch Science, the official website. Monarch Sciences – Now Declassified

    It has a VR Globe with various locations, with 3 marking the resting places of Monthra, Ghidorah and Rodan (these are identifiable as spots that pulsate, as they are now getting crowded by spots with pictures).

    If you go to Ghidorah's spot in the South Pole and click on it, it will give you references to his height, and Ghidorah is stated to be 521 ft in height, his wingspan is still unknown. Interestingly we have the wingspan and height for both Rodan (WS: 871 ft / H:154 ft) and Monthra (WS: 803 ft / H: 52 Ft). So considering Ghidora's size, his winspan may well be over 1400 ft.

    See my approximation above. His actual wings aren't technically that long given the way he carries them, but from the 3rd finger to the 3rd finger itsieasiky 1400 feet.

    Small wonder they made talk about really buffing Rodan and Mothra alongside Godzilla clearly being tougher than he was before; all three of them gonna need to bring their prime time to beat this glorious golden asshole.

    Another Attempt. The four monsters in the movie, plus a Boeing 747-100, a Nimitz-Class Aircraft Carrier, A Blue Whale (the largest living organism), and 1954 Godzilla.

    Cool stuff. Are you sure you were meant to reply to me though?
    Damn. That’s epic. Any idea on how tall Rodan is just standing?
