'Godzilla: King of Monsters' Director Reveals If Rodan Is Stronger Than Godzilla

Godzilla

The first images from Michael Dougherty's upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters were released today.

"Rodan's been kind of a sidekick character, but I've always had a soft spot for him". The movie is the sequel to 2014's blockbuster Godzilla and it will see the legendary monster take on a host of other giant creatures from the classic Japanese Godzilla movies.

In an interview with EW, Dougherty revealed a few more plot details about the movie, which picks up five years after Godzilla. He's like this winged A-bomb.

Dougherty told the outlet that what's depicted in the image is "a very key moment", and that Godzilla's powerful exhalation ability is "a sort of call to arms" - suggesting that whenever the monster fires out that bright blue wave from his mouth, he's either in danger or in need of assistance ahead of a major confrontation.

Speaking of which, does Dougherty set up that face-off in his film? It is scheduled to open on May 31, 2019.
