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.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the grown-up superhero Shazam.
A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake as it strides into New York City. To stop it, an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face 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. When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.
Michael Dougherty revealed that another post credit scene was planned, written, storyboarded and even had locations scouted and costumes ready to go, but it was ultimately scrapped, while he didn't specify why it never happened, he did go into detail about what it would have entailed and his plans to delve deep into Toho mythology in order to introduce a new version of the Mothra Twins. Zhang Ziyi's character and it's set in the aftermath of the film. She's in Tokyo and goes into a restaurant bar and goes down a set of stairs and ends up in what looks like an ancient temple that is eerily similar to the one seen at the beginning of the film in China. Then, she meets up with her identical twin sister and the twin sister is expressing her concerns about whether they should go through with this or not, that these girls are so young, and they're not sure if they're ready. Ziyi says, 'So were we once' and they emerge into this giant chamber where we reveal a second Mothra egg and in front of that are two little girls, maybe three or four years old, also identical twins and they're singing the Mothra song to the egg to get it to hatch. Dougherty was heartbroken that they didn't get to shoot that because it would have confirmed that she was playing the Mothra twins which was a deep cut reference from the original films. See more »

SPOILER: Part of the closing credits are a montage of Monarch records alongside news records covering the aftermath of the Titans' rising. Near the end of the credits, there are various records focusing on Skull Island, Kong's home; this leads into Godzilla vs. Kong (2020). See more »
The whole dramatic family story wasn't able to catch me. It isn't annoying, but allways kind of irrelevant. Every scene including monsters on the other hand is stuning. In General the monster design, the CGI, the fights and the whole cinematography aswell are beyond beautiful. I recommand the movie because of those monster scenes. Everything what happens aroud that is more like a 3/10
