Is my breath stronger?

In the trailers for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, we see my breath looks different from 2014's Godzilla. Could it be because I am more powerful when utilizing it or is it just cosmetic change?

"we see my breath"
"because I am more powerful"

Oh dear...

2019 Godzilla's atomic breath is stronger than 2014 Godzilla because in 2014 the MUTOs had an EMP field around them which caused Godzilla's atomic breath to be weaker. in 2019 we will see Godzilla's atomic breath in its full power.

Long live the king...

I think the changes Dougherty made were to suit what he wanted to see in Godzilla, e.g. the new breath, shape of the spines, and possibly other changes we haven't seen yet.

I just hope these changes are explained/touched on, if only tangentially.

For example, I have this theory headcanon that the fight with the MUTOs and presumably that new MUTO-like monster in the upcoming graphic prequel novel has prompted Godzilla to undergo forced growth to become better suited to future battles.

Things like converting fat stores into muscle, growing out his dorsal plates to better channel his atomic energy, etc.

That's not why it's stronger.

The changes will be addressed. The comic has nothing to do with it.

I dunno, original GMan. I REALLY like the idea of fully integrating the EMP disruption from the ancillary material into the primary no-arguments continuity.

It'd be a neat way of playing up the threat of the MUTOs whilst also explaining why Godzilla didn't just pull this particular breath out before.

It'd be an explanation, sure--But it's not the one you'll get in the movie.

Hey man, don't count your chickens before your eggs have hatched.

Unless you work on the film or have the inside scoop, we'll just agree to disagree. Heck, ever since Kong's film, a greater effort overall has been made to make connections between material. I could definitely see the writing taking more care to keep things consistent.

Also, it'd explain the movie-only plothole of the MUTOs having an EMP for any kind of reason not related to modern technology.

Mate, as good of a G-reporter you are, I don't believe you've seen the film in any capacity great enough to provide an answer or not on these minutiae details of dialogue and/or worldbuilding.

In any case. Don't expect the EMP to be brought up. There is a reason Godzilla's breath looks like it does and it's hardly a "minutiae" of a plot point--And you've technically already seen it in the trailer.

I had read something some time ago where someone asked Dougherty about making changes to Godzilla's physical attributes/characteristics and he answered that Godzilla is an evolving organism and left it at that. Other than that I certainly have no inside scoop on that info, but am looking forward to what the reasoning is, if any, and I'm happy with the changes I've seen so far.

I assumed Godzilla's breath was weaker in 2014 due to having gone a long time sleeping and or not absorbing enough Radiation. now that hes been awake a while and probably absorbed the radiation from the nuke blast at end of 2014 hes much stronger.


MemberMothra LarvaeJan-06-2019 10:27 AM

Wasn't it stated somewhere that the reason the Mutos had the EMP field was to mess with the G-mans atomic breath? I could have swore I read that somewhere. Either way it definitely looks better/stronger, but that could just be the effects more than anything else. Also did anyone else notice that the sub in front of him in the scene looks like ballistic missile submarine? Maybe that has something to do with it.
