A new monster villain makes the titans in Godzilla vs. Kong life hell. But how did it come about? Now there is evidence of its bizarre origin.

Godzilla vs. Kong promises the biggest monster brawl of the year. The MonsterVerse film unites the two legendary titans of cinema history for the first time in an American blockbuster. The giant lizard and the shaggy monkey aren't the only giants in the film, however.

The movie's true spanking showdown is likely to involve a gigantic new villain making her first appearance in the US films. But how did the villain come about? New clues lead directly to the credits scene of Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters. They suggest a bizarre yet coherent idea for breeding the creature.

Godzilla vs. Kong: Origin of the biggest villain revealed

Yesterday the embargo fell on reports from the Godzilla vs. Kong set, which is why there is a lot of information about the story of the animal wrangling on the net. One of the more interesting concerns the appearance of Mechagodzilla, which we thought we recognized in the trailer .

Mechagodzilla was bred from the remains of the villain king

Responsible for Mechagodzilla is apparently a new organization called Apex. The best way to imagine Apex is as Emo Peter Parker from Spider-Man 3 among the MonsterVerse organizations. Monarch is normal Peter. Apex wears black and escalates into embarrassing dance scenes. Or something like that.

In any case, Apex owns the severed skull of King Ghidorah. That comes from a set report from Collider .

Explainer: What is love? Beijing desires unconditional loyalty from Hong Kong

  Explainer: What is love? Beijing desires unconditional loyalty from Hong Kong Explainer: What is love? Beijing desires unconditional loyalty from Hong KongHONG KONG (Reuters) - Chinese officials have signalled that Beijing plans sweeping electoral changes for Hong Kong, possibly as soon as next week, when China's parliament, the National People's Congress (NPC), opens in Beijing.

In the credits scene of Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters , we saw the environmental terrorist Alan Jonah, played by Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), buy the remnants of Ghidorah in Mexico. Now Matt Goldberg describes the following at Collider:

We went through the set and there was a gigantic Ghidorah skull that was wired and engineered. [...] It looks like they took the organic matter from Ghidorah and [turned] it into some kind of new mechanized creature.

Goldberg doesn't say it out loud, but the description is pretty much clear: Mechagodzilla was bred from the remains of King Ghidorah.

Godzilla vs. Kong: How is Mechagodzilla controlled?

So the villain from King of the Monsters forms the basis for the biggest villain in Godzilla vs. Kong. We owe this to Apex, who play a central role in the monster fight.

Not least because the villainous organization Mechagodzilla presumably controls with the wired Ghidorah skull. How this works exactly is indicated by a description of the scene from the set report.

  Exclusive: Two rights groups quit Hong Kong as security law sends shudders through NGOs Exclusive: Two rights groups quit Hong Kong as security law sends shudders through NGOsHONG KONG (Reuters) - At least two political rights groups advocating democracy have quietly quit Hong Kong and moved overseas, unnerved by a national security law that has fanned fears over the erosion of freedoms  under China’s rule, sources told Reuters.

More: The most infernal monster from Godzilla vs. Kong was only now properly revealed by a leak.

In the scene there is a short dialogue between a "pilot" (as Collider describes) and the new character played by Shun Oguri. In it, Oguri's character thanks the pilot for his services.

Check out the Godzilla vs. Kong trailer. At the beginning Mechagodzilla can be seen very briefly:

The Japanese actor plays Ren Serizawa, the son of Dr. Ishirō Serizawa (Ken Watanabe), who sacrificed himself for Godzilla in King of the Monsters. The trailer for Godzilla vs. Kong had already linked the new character with Mechagodzilla .

Now the pilot scene is added. So Mechagodzilla could be steered through the Ghidorah skull as well as with a pilot. It would be conceivable that the metallic monster villain is remote-controlled like a drone.

We don't yet know whether Mechagodzilla will also dance through the streets like Emo-Spidey.

Overview: Godzilla vs. Kong: All information about the climax of MonsterVerse When will Godzilla vs. Kong be in the cinema?

Godzilla vs. Kong will be in the cinema on March 25, 2021, provided that the German cinemas are then reopened. Adam Wingard (You're Next) is directing the film.

What do you think of the information about Mechagodzilla?
