Godzilla: King of the Monsters featured more titans than you can shake a stick at. Aside from the main lizard himself, Godzilla, the movie also brought in longtime "Toho favorites" in the forms of King Ghidorah, Rodan, and Mothra. Not to be outdone however, director Michael Dougherty decided to include a multitude of other titans in the forms of Scylla, MUTO, Titanus Methusalah, and the feature of our article today, Titanus Behemoth. The large wooly mammoth style beast will be featured in the upcoming art book with exclusive concept art and we have a sneak peek!
Twitter User GodzillaMovies shared the upcoming artwork for Titanus Behemoth from the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters artbook:
The Titanus Behemoth may have not gotten the same amount of screen time as his kaiju bretheren, but his appearance is still unique among the titans themselves. An entirely new creation made for the sequel for the 2014 film, the Behemoth makes his presence known by emerging thanks to King Ghidorah's influence but eventually "tows the line" once Godzilla wields the crown. While it didn't fight against Godzilla, we imagine it would be quite the spectacle to see the lizard king fighting against a rampaging titanic wooly mammoth in the future.
With the status quo of the world having changed astronomically at the end of King of the Monsters, it goes without saying that a re-appearance of the Titanus Behemoth could certainly be in the card. With next year's Godzilla Vs. Kong release fast approaching, we'd imagine that this giant prehistoric kaiju would get some sort of screen time, however small it may be.
