Godzilla: King of The Monsters director Michael Dougherty has apparently spoken with Japanese press ahead of the release of his Godzilla sequel and some tidbits from an interview with CinemaTodayJapan has been getting picked up online. Dougherty has confirmed to CinemaTodayJapan (via fansite GormaruIsland) that the Oxygen Destroyer bomb is actually part of Godzilla: King of The Monsters plot, not just making a cameo.

“It appears as an important key item to the story, this is not a cameo”, he confirms, “Of course there will also be other weapons created by humanity that will be shown.”

This could be lining up the debut of Destroyah in the Monsterverse, who is created by the oxygen destroyer. Destroyah could be an interesting antagonist for Godzilla vs Kong or even Godzilla 3. The director previously revealed/teased this device on Twitter during the shoot.

That’s not the only kaiju that could be coming in the future if Michael Dougherty returns. Another couple of tidbits from that CinemaTodayJapan interview was posted by GamoruIsland on Twitter with Michael suggesting an interest in villains Biollante and Gigan for the future films (possibly for Godzilla 3?). Adding that MechaGodzilla and Anguirus are also some of his favorites.

“I wanted to do it, but if I had the opportunity to do it again, I would have Biollante. Oh, and Gigan!”

Warner Bros. has set the release for Godzilla: King of The Monsters for May 31st.

Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
