The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
O'Shea Jackson Jr. is the third actor from Straight Outta Compton (2015) to appear in the MonsterVerse film after Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell in Kong: Skull Island (2017).
Colonel Diane Foster:
Everyone strap in. All shifts - Follow our lead.
The concept of "Alpha of the Titans" relies on the theory of "Alphas" in wolf packs, with the Monarch scientists explicitly referencing said theory, despite it being debunked about 20 years before the film's release (by the same scientist that originally proposed it, no less!). That said, the idea could still work in terms of the Titans, since the old idea of "Alphas" can form amongst unrelated individuals forced into a pack, which is basically what is happening here (although a scientist referencing this idea straight still falls under artistic license).
In a end credit scene, Jonah and his team collect the severed left head of Ghidorah which was salvaged by a fisherman.
