Godzilla vs. Kong was a box office hit when it hit theaters earlier this year, generating hundreds of millions of dollars in profit and becoming Legendary Pictures’ most successful MonsterVerse movie, and one fan created a cosplay stellar to bring a surprising entry to the crossover to life. With the latest kaiju film introducing the world to a new take on Mechagodzilla, a being so powerful that he forced the King of the Monsters and the Ruler of Skull Island to team up and put their differences aside, it’s clear that the doppelganger left an impression.
Mechagodzilla first appeared in the Toho Universe version of Godzilla in 1974, in the appropriate title Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla, with a very different origin than what was introduced in the last crossover film. Featured as an alien creation formed in order to defeat the Lizard King, Mechagodzilla would remain one of the most popular kaiju from the original Godzilla universe and has appeared countless times in the life of the King of the Monsters. . While there has been no confirmation that Mechagodzilla will make a comeback with a future entry in the MonsterVerse, it will be interesting to see if he is able to return from his handicap match against Godzilla and Kong.
Instagram cosplayer Biotom27 shared this crazy take on doppelganger kaiju who got a whole new look for the latest entry in the ever-expanding Godzilla universe, which was later destroyed thanks to Godzilla and Kong teaming up to end the nightmare. mechanical :
In the latest kaiju crossover, Mechagodzilla was created by the company known as Apex, surprisingly created using the remains of King Ghidorah, the three-headed dragon who was the main villain of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Although Ghidorah was not resurrected in the film, it is clear that his malevolent spirit survived in the form of Godzilla’s mechanical rival, seeking to complete what the three-headed beast had started.
