Michael Dougherty, the director of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, has discussed if the film’s post-credits scene teases Mecha-King Ghidorah.
In the post-credits scene for this year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Charles Dance’s villain Jonah looks at the recovered severed head of King Ghidorah. There has been speculation that this could lead to a Mecha-King Ghidorah in a future film but was this the intention?
In a recent interview with Comic Book Movie, the director discussed what this scene was all about: “That wasn’t a direct set up of Mecha-King Ghidorah, no. I’m not saying it’s not, but if you think about King Ghidorah and what’s he capable of, regeneration being a key one and the ability to call the other Titans, he’s a gold mine of opportunity. That DNA is an untapped resource as far as Charles Dance’s character is concerned. A few scrapings of cells and who knows what you can create with it!”
