Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard revealed that the look of MechaGodzilla’s latest incarnation was directly inspired by his desire to improve beings from another popular movie franchise: Transformers.
“I remember watching the third Transformers movie in the cinema, “Wingard said Reverse. “It was one of those things I was on a date with, and we got in late, and the only seats available were literally in the front row. And so I’m just sitting there watching. Transformers 3 in the front row, and I couldn’t tell what was going on. The Transformers, they just looked like metal. They looked like a plane crash. So I thought, this is the thing I wanted to avoid. They were too complex. There are too many moving parts, and I couldn’t hold onto anything. Nothing looked iconic with this Transformers design. “
In the MonsterVerse franchise, MechaGodzilla is created by Apex Cybernetics from the remains of King Ghidorah, who was defeated in 2019 in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. This differs from the origin of MechaGodzilla in the years 1974 Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla. In this movie, MechaGodzilla is specially designed to be the antagonist of Godzilla by aliens from Black Hole Planet 3, who even disguise the build in a fake flesh exoskeleton body so that it looks like Godzilla.
Directed by Adam Wingard and written by Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein, Godzilla vs. Kong stars Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry. The film is currently in theaters and on HBO Max.
