San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone, and one of the clear contenders for best in show just might be Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The movie released an awesome trailer that finally teased the additions of classic Godzilla monsters Mothra, Rodan, and the evil King Ghidorah. That's a lot of monsters for just one sequel, but director Michael Dougherty teased he wasn't content with just four Titans. Yes, the Godzilla sequel may have even more monsters in store for Kaiju fans.
It's unknown how large a role these other monsters will play, but one would wager it won't be too large, considering there are four perfectly good Kaiju the sequel has to service. King of the Monsters is about reawakening the Titans to save the planet, so perhaps these extra monsters are just teased or appear for brief cameos. whatever the case may be, it's still really exciting! Godzilla has no shortage of characters to choose from, and these classic monsters feel like a good bet to cameo in King of the Monsters.
Anguirus was Godzilla's first ever monster opponent, so he feels like a good one to start this list off. Premiering in 1955's Godzilla Raids Again, Anguirus would kick off the long-standing tradition of Godzilla going head-to-head against other Kaiju. As his first opponent ever, Anguiris is pretty decent, though, he's a bit underwhelming compared to later additions to the series. Anguirus possess a strong spikey shell, and fights by biting and ramming his opponents. He's later given the ability to curl up into a spiky ball. Anguirus would appear a few more times after his initial defeat as an ally of Godzilla, helping him defend the planet. His inclusion in King of the Monsters would be a neat callback to the earliest days of the franchise.
Now we get somebody a bit more exciting. Biollante is a plant-lizard thing that debuted in 1989's Godzilla vs. Biollante. In the film, Biollante was created by a scientist who spliced together the genes of Godzilla, a rose, and his dead daughter. Whatever he wanted to happen backfired big time and Biollante was born. In her monster form, Biollante can spew corrosive sap, control massive vine-like tendrils, and turn into a cloud of spores when weakened. She only appeared in one movie, but has had a presence in video games, comics, and other media. She's got a really unique look and seeing her on the big screen would be a real treat.
