In the epic Godzilla vs Kong titan showdown, there is another massive creature that enters the arena.
This is a mechanical beast called Mechagodzilla. Sounding like something out of a 1970s/power ranger wet dream, director Adam Wingard says that Mechagodzilla was inspired by the Transformers films.
“I just always loved the simplicity of the Transformers designs. So I tried to create a look to the character that was punchy and just had a bit more simplicity. There’s an immediacy to his shape and outline… I remember watching the third Transformers movie in the theater. It was one of those things where I was with a date, and we got there late, and the only seats that were available were literally in the front row. And so I’m sitting there watching Transformers 3 in the front row, and I couldn’t tell what the hell was going on. The Transformers, they just looked like metal. They looked like a plane crash. So I thought, that’s the thing I wanted to avoid. They were too complex. There are too many moving parts, and I couldn’t latch on to anything. Nothing felt iconic with that Transformers design.”
