As opposed to the previous entry which introduced new monsters for the titular monster to fight, this one will be bringing in revamped versions of some fan favorites. But while this film will set up an eventual conflict between two cinematic titans in 2020's Godzilla vs. Kong, it will first turn to villains of the past and feature battles between Godzilla and iconic characters like Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. In the original 1954 Godzilla, it's a weapon that destroys oxygen atoms, thus causing the target to asphyxiate and die.

While the behind the scenes photo Dougherty recently posted to Twitter doesn't reveal any monsters, it's still rather exciting.

The photo is of the Oxygen Destroyer which is pivotal in the plot of the original Godzilla. In that film, it was invented by Dr. Daisuke Serizawa, who inadvertently discovered a chemical reaction that could be harnessed in a hugely powerful weapon. In the wake of Tokyo's destruction, Dr. Serizawa used the device to kill both the original Godzilla and himself so that no one would ever be able to re-create the immensely risky weapon.

It'll be interesting to see how this movie will use the Oxygen Destroyer, and what other connections to the franchise we're likely to see. (Straight Outta Compton), Aisha Hinds (Star Trek Into Darkness), Zhang Ziyi (Memoirs of a Geisha) and Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things).

Director Michael Dougherty is hard at work directing Godzilla 2, the next movie in Warner Bros. and Legendary's MonsterVerse.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will hit theaters March 22, 2019.
