The final part of my story idea for the 2018 sequel to this year's "Godzilla".
Hello again, everyone. For the final part of my sequel idea, I'll get into the big bad of the film, KING GHIDORAH, and reveal my casting ideas for the new characters: Haruko Mori & Miki Saegusa.
First off, let's get into my favorite part of this reinvention, my spin on an element of the Ghidorah mythology that was first introduced in "Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah" (1991), the Dorats:These cute little buggers were the three critters who, after replacing the dinosaur that would become Godzilla and being exposed to heavy amounts of radiation, would merge and become the horrifying King Ghidorah:Since I really like the Dorats, I thought they should make a reappearance in the Legendary series. But not as their formerly cute selves. In the unmade 1994 American Godzilla movie, the antagonist monster, the Gryphon, sent out small, horrendous-looking creatures called "Probe Bats". Because I felt it a waste not to use such an awesome idea, I thought the Probe Bats would make the perfect update of the Dorats:The Dorats/Probe Bats are sent out from the meteorite to gather organic material that serves as energy to reconstitute Ghidorah's true form (the Dorats themselves being a mutation of bats exposed to the meteorite).
And as for Ghidorah's true form, I thought about this for awhile, and instead of the usual two-winged, two-legged form we all know, I thought a better use of a rarer form, the four-legged behemoth, Kaiser Ghidorah (from "Godzilla: Final Wars" (2004) ), would be appropriate:That redesign of Kaiser Ghidorah perfectly illustrates how I think Godzilla's arch nemesis should be reinvented. Since Godzilla is the biggest we've ever seen him in the Legendary series, Ghidorah should respond in kind and be colossal, something the Kaiser design does well in concept, but has yet in execution. If there's one thing I would tweak about the above design, it would be the heads:BlackMatter234 on deviantartThis design, by the same artist who did the Rodan art in PART 1, gives Ghidorah the "Smaug-like" facial features I would want him to have.

And now, to close out this party, my casting decisions for the two new characters:Haruko Mori
I saw Louis Ozawa Changchien in "Predators" (2010), and afterwards thought that I'd like to see him in a Godzilla film someday. I think he has the talent to play Mori, who I imagine is haunted by the death of his friend Owen Matthews by the beak of Rodan. He would also have a determination to at first get back at Rodan, but then would realize he was crucial in the final fight against Ghidorah.Miki Saegusa
I'll admit I haven't seen Mika Hijii in anything yet, but she appears to have the vulnerability that Miki Saegusa displayed in the Heisei series. She is the observer of the group, and her psychic sensitivity to the brutal natures of Rodan & Anguirus troubles her greatly. But, the nobleness of both Godzilla & Mothra puts her mind at ease.
So, there you have it ladies and gents. Please tell me below what you think, and if you haven't seen Parts 1 & 2, be sure to check them out.
