We all know that Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla will feature some other monsters, but so far things have been kept tightly under wraps, but there was certainly a glimpse of one in the trailer.
Below are two stills from the recently released, and pretty damn amazing Godzilla trailer, and the stills reveal something very large landing almost on top of a group of soldiers. Up until now fans have speculated as to what it could be, and now we have the answer.
The above images are that of a new monster called Muto, and the pretty badass monster looks very much like the awesome monster from Cloverfield. Cosmic Book News revealed some photos of a new range of Godzilla toys called Godzilla Destruction, and if you take a look at the photos below, you will see Muto. Check out the arms on the monster, and it is clearly the same as the images from the trailer above.
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
