Godzilla may be the King of the Monsters, but there are other creatures out there gunning for his spot. The kaiju is a fierce and all, but guys like King Ghidorah have thrown down for the title. And, if Monarch is on to something, there may be something in the North Atlantic Ocean waiting to surprise Godzilla.
After all, the mysterious organization is teasing a little Bermuda Triangle tie-in, and it has got fans theorizing the worst.
Recently, fans were given a teaser about the Bermuda Triangle when the official website for Monarch Sciences updated. A few classified bases were mapped, and one was pinned just outside of the so-called Devil’s Triangle. As it stands, the Monarch base is totally classified, but kaiju fanatics can sniff out a connection when it presents itself.
After all, the history of the Bermuda Triangle is a complex one, and it has been accused of housing cryptids for decades now. For those of you unaware of the iconic region, it is a widespread triangle of water pinned between Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. Spanning thousands of miles, the infamous region has been said to be a hotbed of supernatural activity for years. In fact, the first incident suspected to be part of the triangle’s inexplicable danger dates back to 1950. An article questioned disappearances which went down within the triangle, and more losses have been racked up since. Now, fans are wondering if Monarch Sciences knows the real reason those boats and planes vanished... and it may be thanks to another MUTO gunning after Godzilla’s top spot.
For now, there is no telling whether Legendary’s growing MonsterVerse will address anything about the Bermuda Triangle, but this tease has got fans thinking. Other real-world mysteries such as the Loch Ness Monster have been teased by the group in recent weeks, so fans will want to pay close attention when Godzilla: King of the Monsters debuts next year.
