Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse was officially launched back in 2014 with Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, and it’s currently dominating the box office in the form of director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ massively entertaining Kong: Skull Island. Up next, Michael Dougherty’s sequel Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set to arrive in 2019, with Godzilla vs. Kong coming in 2020.
As you may have caught at the very end of Kong: Skull Island, a post-credits scene teased the next installment in the Godzilla series, revealing that Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah will soon be coming along for the ride – one or all of them will likely be appearing in Dougherty’s 2019 film. What/who else can we expect to see in the new MonsterVerse? Gamera, perhaps?
Was Gamera already teased in Kong: Skull Island?!
Eagle-eyed reader “Callum Cenobite” just dropped us an e-mail to let us know that he spotted what sure looks to be Gamera, a monster-sized turtle, in the new film’s opening credits:
At the beginning is a sketch of a turtle that appears for a few seconds. Next to the turtle it says MUTO Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism.
Interesting. Very interesting. Check out a screen-grab below.
Gamera first appeared in 1965, and subsequently starred in eleven Japanese films.
