"The approach that my writing partner Zach Shields and I took was that Godzilla, the MUTOs, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah they're a super-species. These creatures were worshipped as ancient gods; they are the reasons we have stories about dragons and giants and titans.

"Because if you look at the entire world's collection of ancient myths, you realize that they all have stories about monsters. What we're trying to establish is the idea that Godzilla and his brethren are the reason for that," Dougherty said in a statement.

According to the statement, 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 Ghidorah.
