Did Godzilla vs. Kong's Trailer Drop a MechaGodzilla Easter Egg?

At last! The first teaser for Legendary and Warner Brothers' Godzilla vs. Kong has arrived, giving fans their first major look at the kaiju epic that's set for release in but a matter of weeks. Naturally, the teaser focuses primarily on the film's titular monsters, showing Godzilla and Kong duking it out in various locales, from a mid-sea fight aboard a freighter to a tussle in the middle of a neon-lit city.

Yet among all the fists thrown, there was a sense of mystery as some of the human characters involved suggested something was forcing Godzilla to act now. Now, fans think we've already seen the true antagonist of the film in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment. If you pay attention around the 1:42 mark, you'll see screens charging what appears to some off-screen weapon. Furthermore, if you look at the background, there appears to be a diagram on the wall that resembles MechaGodzilla, the long-time mechanical antagonist to our lizard friend.

The epic clash between the two titans--instigated by unseen forces--is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth."
