MechaGodzilla Stands Tall In New Image Of Netflix Godzilla Sequel
The monster battles of the kaiju genre are back in a big way as of late and none come bigger than the supergiant Godzilla of Toho’s new anime Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. Standing at over 1000 feet tall, the gargantuan stomped onto Netflix earlier this year and promised a towering new trilogy for the years ahead. The animation notably teased the introduction of MechaGodzilla for the upcoming sequel, and now a new image gives an updated look at the classic robo-kaiju.
Revealed on Godzilla‘s official Twitter account, filmmakers have shared an all new look at MechaGodzilla. The image is captioned with “The MechaGodzilla that should have perished in a final battle with Godzilla in 2046 AD,” teasing the role it might play in the 2018 follow-up. The jagged machine looks pretty well intact considering its been out of commission for about 20,000 years. Perhaps we’ll see the metal behemoth be put to the test in an eventual Godzilla confrontation, but no such details have been confirmed as of yet.

For those not in the know, MechaGodzilla is one of Godzilla’s most unique foes in that it was built as a mirror image to the original, but with immense amount of on-board firepower. The intimidating mech has had several incarnations over the years, with origins ranging from alien-made technology to good ol’ human ingenuity. The new Godzilla anime continuity seemingly combines these two beginnings, making it a joint project between humanity and the extraterrestrial race of Bilusaludos. This MechaGodzilla will finally get a chance to activate when the Godzilla sequel arrives on Netflix in May.
