The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.
Mothra's design in the Monsterverse is reminiscent of the Male MUTO: she has a pair of curved front legs, digitigrade hind legs, a set of smaller arms on her chest and a pair of elongated membranous wings. This may be more than just coincidence: it's likely that Mothra's species is actually related to the MUTO, being in the same family just like how wasps and bees are, sharing common traits but being distinct in terms of behavior. Notably, both the MUTO species and, apparently, Mothra's species are symbiotic with Godzilla's, just different kinds of symbiosis (the MUTOs are parasitic and Mothra appears to be mutualistic, eg. what is colloquially referred to as symbiotic), and it is not unknown for evolution to cause jumps from one kind of symbiosis to another, or have speciation happen through specialising in different kinds of symbiosis. Alternatively, Mothra and the MUTO might not be related at all, but the MUTO evolved a similar appearance as a form of deceptive mimicry. This is similar to the real life fish called the saber-toothed blenny, that mimics the appearance of the beneficial cleaner wrasse, luring in unsuspecting fish for a grooming, only to attack them when they come close. It's possible that the male MUTO evolved a similar appearance to Mothra's species, to lure unsuspecting, inexperienced members of Godzilla's species over to their nest where the larger and stronger female would be lying in wait.

When Madison exits the fallout shelter to head to Fenway she passes a sign that says "Greater Massachusetts Fallout Shelter." There is no geographical area designated as "Greater Massachusetts" and this was probably intended to be "Greater Boston Fallout Shelter." See more »

Good but bad, but good
The movie is about godzilla right? I dont want to follow a little girl and her mom 70% of the movie. I just dont care about them or if they will survive or die because its about the giant monster. The fights and scenes with zilla was great. I would like to see more lore and background about the titans.
