Yes folks, according to the official website, Godzilla will indeed be fighting Mecha Godzilla in the second film. They also revealed a brand new PV for the second film itself, “Godzilla: The City Mechanized for the Final Battle”.
The website also confirmed that the “Super Gigantic Godzilla” in the first film has a name, and its “Godzilla Earth”. As for Mecha Godzilla, they describe the giant mecha as the “ultimate anti-Godzilla weapon”.
The poster also reveals that the second film will premiere in May 2018. In previous Godzilla films, the humans developed Mecha Godzilla as the “ultimate anti-Godzilla weapon”. They actually made several other variations, including Kiryuu, which they made from the first Godzilla’s bones.
