With both 2014’s Godzilla and this year’s Kong: Skull Island managing to outperform expectations, the MonsterVerse from Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers is off to a good start. That being said, there’s room for growth amongst the roster of kaiju – thus far, only five classic kaiju have been confirmed to exist in the MonsterVerse: Godzilla, King Kong, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, and of those, we’ve only seen two of them in action. Should the series continue to succeed, the setting’s going to need more than original monsters like the M.U.T.O. and the Skullcrawlers – it will need to pull in some fan-favorite monsters from the classic creature features to keep things interesting. Here are ten of Toho’s best kaiju that would make fine additions to the MonsterVerse, with explanations of who they are and why they need to be a part of the setting.
