Does New Godzilla Trailer Confirm The Flying Kaiju Is Muto?
All of these Godzilla trailers have found a way to take the excitement to a new level, but this one has to be the ultimate. This latest trailer gives us our best look ever at the mystery flying kaiju antagonist for Gareth Edwards' May 16th release, but it would seem we still can't agree on who it is. Some say that it is Mothra. Other's are sticking with Rodan. Unfortunately, it looks like they're all wrong (us included) because this trailer serves as the best evidence yet that the flying Kaiju is the new Legendary Pictures creation, Muto.
Indeed, this Muto or Hakmuto as it is being called is the only Kaiju other than Godzilla to have been officially registered by Legendary and Toho, so why would there be anything else? I'll admit, the images of the flying kaiju sweeping past the skyscraper windows still has me convinced that Rodan is making an appearance, but maybe that's just wishful thinking more than anything.
Somewhat more interestingly, this latest international trailer seems to suggest more strongly than ever that Godzilla is actually on our side. With the flying kaiju having escaped capture, it looks like humanity's only hope is to bring Godzilla to the fray. Seems kind of counter-intuitive, but the end product looks spectacular, so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt!
Got any other theories as to which monsters are appearing?
