A toy leak appears to confirm that classic Toho villain Mechagodzilla will appear in the upcoming MonsterVerse movie, “Godzilla vs. Kong”.
The King of the Monsters and King of Monkeys are set to duke it out on the big screen later this year, which will be the culmination of Warner Bros. and Legendary’s so-called MonsterVerse. Yet, if these new toys are any indication, there is going to be another surprise guest crashing the party.
While toys aren’t always the best indication of what’s to come, they’re right often enough that it’s worth warning those who don’t want anything about this movie spoiled. That having been said, the Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair recently took place. It’s an expo that allows companies to show off merchandise for vendors who are looking to buy product for the year. Some photos surfaced online of some toys coming out for Godzilla vs. Kong and, standing right alongside the two beasts is none other than Mechagodzilla.
The photos online are, admittedly, not high quality, but we can, clearly enough, make out a robotic version of the new Godzilla. This heavily implies that the character will be making an appearance in Godzilla vs. Kong. How, precisely, the robo kaiju would factor into the plot remains to be seen. One can assume it will be used as a man-made deterrent for the monsters, or “Titans.” We can also guess things won’t go according to plan and Godzilla and/or Kong will have to take down the robotic beast.
Godzilla vs Kong is set to be in theaters November 20. 2020.
