Many fans have been waiting years for Godzilla vs. Kong to finally hit theaters. While that wait still has quite some time to go, there has been an exciting new look at what audiences can expect for the upcoming crossover film. Thanks to a newly released teaser for an upcoming MonsterVerse graphic novel, it looks like there are all kinds of new monsters that we can expect. And not only that, but we get a glimpse at Kong’s massive new beard. The images from the MonsterVerse graphic novel which ties into Godzilla vs. Kong were revealed at [email protected] 2020 via Legendary Comics.
As mentioned above, aside from Kong’s new beard that we will also be seeing in Godzilla vs. Kong – which is a sign of his advanced age following his appearance in Kong: Skull Island – there are plenty of new monsters shown in these images. One such is the Skull Island Tiger, as well as a monster named Camazotz.
The graphic novel also features an appearance from recurring MonsterVerse character Dr. Houston Brooks. He was one of the main characters in Kong: Skull Island, having been played by actor Corey Hawkins. The character later made something of a cameo in Godzilla: King of the Monsters as a much older scientist played by actor Joe Morton. As such, it’s nice to see the continuity respected with yet another appearance from Dr. Houston Brooks.
Camazotz was apparently described during the panel as a male which was “like ‘darkness’ and the ’embodiment of nightmares,’” which seems like an interesting addition to current lore. He also appears to be accompanied by various other flying monsters, albeit they seem to all be much smaller in size.

Of course, it isn’t explained where exactly in the continuity these images will be placed and how exactly they will tie overall into Godzilla vs Kong. This means we might not see Camazotz in the new film at all, but who knows? As long as we know there are new monsters on the way, it sounds like it’ll be a good time in the theater.
Godzilla vs Kong is at the moment still currently scheduled to hit theaters on November 20, 2020.
