We are just a few days from the theatrical release of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. The anticipation of these two Titans hitting the big screen has hit a fever pitch because they will have to team up to face a new enemy that threatens the entire world. However, it appears they will not be alone. A new poster that has just come out from the Chinese market has revealed a fan-favorite Toho character will return to fight alongside King Kong and Godzilla.

Possible spoilers ahead

The new Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire poster reveals the return of the legendary monster, Mothra. The poster clearly shows the winged kaiju in the background behind Godzilla, King Kong, and new monsters Skar King and Shimo. There had been some fan speculation for quite a while now that the Queen of the Monsters appears in one of the previous Godzilla x Kong trailers.

In a quick glimpse from one of the early trailers for the film, we get an image of what appears to be a monster in the reflection of someone’s eye. It was unclear which monster this was, but many fans began to theorize that this was Mothra.

The last time we saw Mothra, she gave her life force to revive Godzilla in his battle against King Ghidorah in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. There have been multiple iterations of Mothra in past Godzilla movies, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she would return.

With the return of Mothra, fans just have one more reason to get excited about seeing this epic Kaiju battle on the big screen.
