Godzilla might be the king of the monsters, but that doesn’t mean his title will remain in his possession for good. Not only does Ghidorah hope to steal that crown in the kaiju’s next film, but its stars are coming up with their own kaijus to take out Godzilla.
Oh, but don’t worry. It looks like O’Shea Jackson Jr. has his perfect Titan in mind already.
Recently, ComicBook.com had the chance to speak with the cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and it was there Jackson opened up about his dream kaiju.
According to the star, he wants to see a Titan that mashes up a gorilla and a dragon. Why? Well, the answer is simple; Jackson wants to show King Kong who is boss, and there is no better way than to combine an ape with a dragon.
“Personally, I don’t think King Kong should be able to step up to Godzilla. But if you could mix them, that’s a pretty bad kaiju right there,” the actor said.
Of course, Millie Bobby Brown was quick to jump into the conversation at that point. Thea actress, who will star in Godzilla vs Kong next year, said she wouldn’t be surprised if Kong had a bigger edge on Godzilla than fans think. As the actress said, she has read the script, so she has more insight into the pair’s growing feud.
Still, there would be on surefire way to threaten both kaiju, and that would be a cross between them. If there’s a way to create some sort of Kongilla, then Jackson is backing that kaiju should they step to Godzilla.
So, what would your perfect kaiju look like? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!0comments
