Director of Godzilla: King Of The Monsters on what that post-credits scene will mean for Godzilla vs. Kong

We *think* we know who the real villain is going to be in the next movie...
One of the biggest movies of the year (and we mean "biggest" in every way that "biggest" can be meant) is out in cinemas now, with Godzilla: King Of The Monsters smashing skyscrapers with his monster mates and monster enemies.
Fans of the Warner Brothers Monster-Verse will already know from the first Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island that these movies are all linked together, partly due to the monster-hunting company Monarch being in them all, and partly because of the post-credits scenes that seem to set up what is to come next.
Spoilers from here on out, but at the very end of King Of The Monsters, we find ourselves back in Mexico, were Charles Dance is surveying the decapitated head of King Ghidorah (before he regrew it), which was salvaged from the ocean by local fishermen.
We asked the movie's writer and director Michael Dougherty about this, and he was very careful with how he phrased his answer:
"What you see transpire in the post-credits scene definitely pays off in Godzilla vs. Kong."
Not a huge amount to go on there, obviously, but we do have decades of previous Godzilla movies to guess from, so here we go. We're assuming it will be one of the following two:
(1) Dance will use the the head to create a man-made titan, maybe even the first steps towards some kind of bio-mechanical creature, one that humanity can control. So, yes, a kind of MechaGodzilla, and we're veering into Pacific Rim plot territory here. Still though, considering King Of The Monsters brought in aliens and the lost city of Atlantis, a MechaGodzilla isn't even remotely the most bonkers thing on show here.
(2) The use of the Oxygen Destroyer bomb, in the original movies, leads to the arrival of Godzilla's ultimate villain, Destoroyah. They are awoken by the use of that bomb (the same bomb that caused the fishermen to start bringing back dragon heads instead of, y'know, fish), and while they are individually about the same size as a human being, there are thousands of them, and they combine is size and strength to dwarf even Godzilla himself.
So, there you have, Godzilla has his hands full, once he scraps it out with Kong, and they go all Batman V Superman and team up to take out a bigger, badder villain.
We also chatted to two of the movie's stars, Millie Bobby Brown and O'Shea Jackson Jr., which you can watch here.
Meanwhile, Godzilla vs. Kong smashes into cinemas in March 2020, but Godzilla: King Of The Monsters is in Irish cinemas right now!
