According to reports by the YouTube channel named Warstu, SpaceGodzilla is most likely to be the antagonist of the 2024 Adam Wingard directorial. If the reports are to be believed, the movie will introduce SpaceGodzilla fighting against the unison of Godzilla and Kong. Despite sounding very similar to the Godzilla vs. Kong climax where the two joined hands at the end to go against the Mechagodzilla, the premise of the upcoming sequel promises to be more unique.

The details revealed by Warstu states that Legendary will introduce the vintage kaiju in a different way than how it was shown by Toho. Although the details are not yet corroborated by any studio official, Warstu stands as a credible source for its records of giving some valuable plot leaks. According to them, the sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong will also shed light on the ancient Titan War. Additionally, this SpaceGodzilla can also turn out to be the ultimate reason for that age-old War between the Titans. Even the official synopsis of the movie paves the way for a similar outcome.

The SpaceGodzilla with giant crystals on its shoulder was formed when Godzilla’s DNA was mutated by a black hole. But Legendary might likely plan a different origin story for the Kaiju.
