Trivia

  • All of the films in the MonsterVerse are set to be distributed by Warner Bros. (except in Japan), despite Legendary's current distribution partner being Universal Pictures. This is because Toho's deal with Legendary to grant them the Godzilla license was made exclusively with it and Warner Bros.
  • This is the first American-produced Godzilla continuity that features other trademarked Toho monsters other than Godzilla himself, with Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Rodan appearing in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
  • The MonsterVerse is the first series in which Godzilla does not deliberately cause destruction in the first film. While Godzilla was portrayed as a protagonist monster in the first film of the Millennium series, Godzilla 2000: Millennium, he was still depicted causing destruction and attacking humans, while the Godzilla in Legendary Pictures' Godzilla is never seen intentionally causing destruction or threatening human characters, though he does cause some destruction as a byproduct of his size.
  • The MonsterVerse will be the first series to feature a meeting between Godzilla and King Kong since the Showa series.
  • Interestingly, the "M"-shaped logo used for the MonsterVerse looks nearly identical to the logo of Monarch.
