Alright, I'm trying to keep calm, BUT I CAN'T! My brother casually mentioned to me something that he noticed while watching last year's Godzilla for the hundredth time (seriously, he is obsessed) and I think that maybe, just maybe, it's an easter egg to a major Godzilla universe character that no-one else has found yet!
Allow me a moment to explain myself, and calm down a little. We've all seen the easter eggs teasing major Godzilla characters like Mothra, and we know that the depth Gareth Edwards went into hinting at parts of the Godzilla universe shows how well he knows the history of the character, but he may have put something in plain view that points to another major kaiju!
I had trouble even finding a clip from this part of the film because it was looked over so easily, but here is a picture of what I'm talking about.
That is a shot from the film where Dr Ishiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) finds the bones of a giant creature which had two egg sacs in it, which turned out to be the MUTO creatures that Godzilla fought during the film. That in itself doesn't appear to be all that remarkable, so that is how they were made, so what? Well, as it turns out, these bones may just have a use later on!
Now that you've seen that glorious gif, there is a piece of Godzilla lore involving just what humans may end up doing with the super strong bones of a dead creature!
Yes indeed, this is Kiryu. You may not have heard of him, but if you know any Godzilla lore then you will have heard of Mechagodzilla. Now, originally Mechagodzilla was built by Simians, a race of aliens, to destroy Godzilla. Then Godzilla destroyed him and the United Nations built a second one from the remains of Mecha-King Ghidorah, its a whole thing and you shouldn't ask too many questions. But then in a 2002 Toho film, which the poster for is shown above, a new Godzilla emerged, and the Japanese military used the bones of the original from 1954 to create a new Mechagodzilla named Kiryu! Now, think carefully, thus far we have no bones of the original Godzilla, and we can't even be sure if the films are hinting towards the modern Godzilla being the same as the old one of not! But we do have the bones of this MUTO creature. Isn't it possible that the humans will freak about all of these giant monsters and put these materials to good use? Isn't it possible they will make a Kiryu/Mechagodzilla like creature out of those bones!? Rant is now over.
