The Legendary Pictures sequel secured Godzilla's spot as the one and only lizard king, defeating King Ghidorah and leading the remaining kaiju into a brand new future. With a titanic clash slated for next year with the kaiju monarch defending his crown against the ruler of Skull Island, Kong, fans won't have to wait long to see Godzilla emerge from the depths once again. Now, to celebrate Godzilla's victory, WETA Workshop, who worked on the film, released concept art of the lizard king's big moment where he takes his rightful place.
WETA Workshop shared the concept art on their Official Twitter Account, with over a dozen kaiju surrounding their newfound king in a glorious moment that takes place at the tail end of Godzilla: King of the Monsters:
#Godzilla establishing himself as KING of the Monsters. Designer Jeremy Hanna took inspiration from old religious artworks. Godzilla looms in a modern hellscape - when he defeats his enemy, the hell storm subsides & the surviving beasts bow to their new King. @GodzillaMovie #tbt pic.twitter.com/dHbxIlkYHQ— Weta Workshop (@WetaWorkshop) August 28, 2019
The long awaited sequel to the original Legendary Pictures Godzilla film did its best at expanding the "Monster-verse" with leaps and bounds, introducing fan favorites such as Ghidorah, Rodan, and Mothra, as well as several other new kaiju that create entirely new threats for humanity to live with or combat. While Ghidorah as king riled the kaiju up, unleashing a destructive horde against humanity, we'll have to see how Godzilla's reign differs from that of the three headed dragon that came before.
What do you think of this new concept art that brings a new light to Godzilla's final amazing moment? Which kaiju do you think will join the lizard king in Godzilla Vs Kong next year?

When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance."
