This Titan Is Confirmed To Be In Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (Minor Spoiler)

There is a rumor going around that Legendary Entertainment has begun test screenings for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. So far, test screenings has come out fairly positive and sounds like it will be just as fun as Godzilla vs Kong. One thing I will say is that anything shown in the test screenings may not be in the final cut. Any details someone says they claim they saw in the screening should be taken with a grain of salt until we see a trailer for the film. However, there is one bit of detail that is confirmed by KdM himself. There is another antagonist monster that appears in the movie and we got a little bit of information on what this new monster is.

CAUTION: The information you are about to read is a spoiler. If you don't want to be spoiled before the movie then click off now.

If you're still here, I highly advise to keep in mind that what you're about to read should be taken with a huge grain of salt and should even be taken as only rumor until we see official footage.


To get an idea, I want you to start thinking back to last year when a video game called Call of Duty did an in-game event that ties in with Godzilla vs Kong. While players were exploring the map of the island looking for the opposite team to kill or just to shoot Godzilla or Kong to gain experience points there were little easter eggs relating to the Monsterverse laid across the map. One of those easter eggs happened to be a cave painting showing Godzilla fighting another monster that fans debated whether this was Anguirus or SpaceGodzilla. As it turns out, this monster in the cave painting happened to be our first glimpse of this new monster that will appear in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.

Shimu depicted in a cave painting in Call of Duty

This monster does have a name, but it turns out that this is not any of Toho Co.'s monsters. This Titan is apparently called Shimu. This is an original monster that acts as a secondary villain in the movie. It is not the main villain. The main villain, based on what is known so far, is still the "Orangu-Kong" Titan that we saw in the teaser trailer.

Shimu is said to be the first and oldest Titan according to the test screening, but I am not entirely sure if this information is correct or not. I even question a couple of plot points where it sounded similar to how I gave my version of a Monsterverse SpaceGodzilla his origin story.

In SpaceGodzilla's origin story, I depicted him as the Zo-Zla-Halawa that the Iwi's originally feared. He was defeated by both Kong's and Godzilla's ancestors by pushing him into one of the vortexes and trapping SpaceGodzilla inside. Remnants of his dorsal plates remained and the Kongs tried to use them to build weapons and tools, but the ancestors of Godzilla took offense to this and thus began their rivalry. According to the supposed test screening, there are plot points that play out similarly yet it has to do with Godzilla's outburst against the "Orangu-Kong" rather than Kong's ancestors.

Because of this little plot detail, this is one of the things that I question about this test screening. It sounded a little too close to my version of a Monsterverse SpaceGodzilla. It makes me think that maybe this guy that claimed to have watched a test screening perhaps stumbled upon my blog post and used parts of that and changed some of the details to make it sound not as obvious.

Again, please keep most of what you read in terms of plot with a huge grain of salt. Even if details from the test screenings are true, not all of it will make it into the final cut and I am sure there will be changes to the story, as well.

If you have reached the end, then I want to know what your thoughts are on the new monster in the comments section (without spoiling it for others). Were you hoping for an original monster or were you hoping it would be a Toho monster?

I think Shimu was in Kong vs Godzilla, that big skull head , i think that was Shimu. He will back to film as a memory when scar King will tell to Kong a story of great war, he will lie about that story to manipulate kong, because he will try beat Godzilla and became new Alfa.

Wingard said there was going to be a collossal Kaiju. I estimate about 800FT tall. Shimu is going to look incredible. Probably end up a new favorite of mine. I hope someday we find a real Kaiju in our reality. There are rumors that they are tracking one now beneath Antarctica. I am not confirming it. Elon Musk is rumored to know something about a real Kaiju.
