For those looking to deliver a monster-sized message of love to that special someone this year, Toho has you covered. The company has published a set of Godzilla Valentine’s cards, just in time for the annual love-centered holidays. The cards not only feature the King of the Monsters himself, but also include several other kaiju from the studio’s huge library of characters.
The Valentine’s Day cards were revealed on Godzilla’s official social media accounts. The monsters that appear are Godzilla, Space Godzilla, Ghidorah, Mechagodzilla and, perhaps the most curious, Biollante. It’s an interesting mix of familiar beasts and a couple of slightly lesser-known beasts from the studio’s vast catalog. All the cards come with funny messages. Godzilla, for example, has a heart that says, “Bumping my way into your heart.” Ghidorah’s, meanwhile, says “I’m crazy about you.” The cards were shared on Twitter with the following message.
“Happy #ValentinesDay! Download and send one of these cards to your special kaiju crush today at Godzilla.com. What’s your favorite card?”
While these cards don’t appear to be physically available for purchase, they can be downloaded for free from the official Godzilla website. The monsters were apparently chosen at random. Although perhaps a couple of options are worth examining. Ghidorah was featured as the main villain in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the newest entry in the current MonsterVerse franchise. He was apparently defeated by Godzilla, who took his place as king.
But the most interesting selection is, perhaps, Mechagodzilla. Although it has not been officially confirmed, there has been substantial evidence suggesting that the mechanical beast will be part of the next Godzilla vs. Kong. Toy leaks, as well as certain shots in the trailer, have pointed out that this is the case. The fact that the monster was included in one of these Valentine’s Day cards probably doesn’t mean much. It was just a good pun. Specifically, “I’m in love with you.”
As mentioned, the next step for Godzilla is Godzilla vs. Kong. This will be the cinematic rematch of the century, with two of the most legendary monsters in history facing off once again. The film was directed by Adam Wingard, known for his work on witch Y You are next. Includes a massive cast of top-notch humans, with Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler returning from King of monsters.
It will be one of many films to debut both in theaters and on HBO Max this year. WarnerMedia decided to take the entirety of Warner Bros. 2021’s movie roster and give those titles a hybrid release, airing on HBO Max in the US and in theaters where available. Ruffled many feathers in Hollywood. Legendary Pictures, which co-financed the next MonsterVerse entry, was not very happy at first. In the end, the two parties managed to figure it out. Godzilla vs. Kong is scheduled to arrive on March 31st. You can download Godzilla Valentine’s Day cards at Godzilla.com.
