A couple months have passed now since seeing the first footage of Godzilla vs. Kong and fans with keen eyes spotted what could be Mechagodzilla. That snowballed into fan theories like the reason why Godzilla seems to be terrorizing the city is because Mechagodzilla is disguised with some kind of skin suit. Then multiple toy lines started releasing Mechagodzilla action figure images via social media. While the anticipation for the upcoming battle between Godzilla and Kong is getting bigger, there has been hints of a third kaiju joining the battle royale — a mechanical giant menace. Finally, a new Godzilla vs. Kong international trailer confirms Mechagodzilla’s appearance in the massive creature battle film.
The Mechagodzilla Theories Are True
In the first Godzilla Vs. Kong trailer, there was a brief glimpse of something large with glowing red eyes destroying buildings while people were running for their survival. There was also an image in the background of a screen that showed some kind of schematics that looks like Mechagodzilla.
Director Adam Wingard confirmed that the toy release was legit. In the new Godzilla Vs. Kong new international trailer, which doesn’t really spoil anything at this point, is the best look we get so far of Mechagodzilla. Check it out below:

The final scenes of the new international trailer teases Mechagodzilla, or at least his back and a close-up of his eye. It’s clear that a full reveal of the giant mechanical menace is being saved for the film’s release. The confirmation still doesn’t tell us a lot about how Mechagodzilla will fit into the giant kaiju battle between Godzilla and Kong. Since it looks like it’s created by humans, Mechagodzilla could be a last defense measure against the kaijus roaming the planet.
