SDCC: More Toho Monsters for 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters'?!

Director Mike Dougherty teased that Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah might not be the only Toho monsters that'll be showing up in the 2014 sequel due out next year.

At the SDCC panel for Godzilla: King of the Monsters one of the most interesting bits that came out of it (besides the glorious trailer that I've watched more than twenty times now) is this little bit from director Mike Dougherty:

 There might be a few more surprises.

Actor Thomas Middleditch immediately chimed in saying,  "Yeah we got Dracula, the Mummy..." poking fun at the dead "Dark Universe" over at Universal

So already shown in the trailer, Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah aren't the only giant monsters (or Titans as they're referred to in the movie) from the Toho movies being used. So who else will show up? Fan theories were abound earlier this week given the viral marketing point to Gigan. But Gigan is kind of complicated being a giant freaking cyborg monster.

My own theory? Well, the Oxygen Destroyer was teased during production. And if that means micro-oxygen is being used in this film. Then, that could mean only one thing given what micro-oxygen usually leads too:


DESTROYAH!! But that kaiju seems like a final boss sort of-- wait. What if this movie teases that and Destroyah is the final boss in next year's Kong vs. Godzilla that forces Kong and Godzilla to put aside their eternal rivalry to fight an even greater foe? NAH!! It'll probably be Godzilla smacking Kong around for two hours. 

Probably means a lesser Toho kaiju might appear though. Angurius pops to mind and maybe Varan, a beloved cult kaiju in the Toho catalog that they have. There is A LOT of Toho monsters to choose from. Heck, maybe Middleditch wasn't kidding and there's a Frankenstein cameo (Frankenstein's Monster did show up in a Toho kaiju movie 1965's Frankenstein Conquers the World)? Who do you think Dougherty is alluding too? 

Whatever the case, here's the poster they were giving out for the movie at the panel (via Dougherty's Twitter):


Godzilla: King of the Monsters will begin it's glorious reign May 31st. Now if you excuse me, I have to watch this trailer a few more times. When I say a few more times. I mean fifty more times on various screens.
