History

MonsterVerse

Godzilla

Fifteen years following the death of his mother Sandra Brody and subsequent destruction of the Janjira Nuclear Power Plant, Ford Brody and his father Joseph try to form a duo to investigate the truth as to what caused the incident. Ford encounters Godzilla and the MUTOs a number of times. Ford himself is a Lieutenant in the United States Navy, as an E.O.D. (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) technician. As the female MUTO laid eggs and used a nuclear warhead as an energy source for the soon to be offspring, Ford and his men removed the nuke and he destroyed the eggs. This inadvertently saved Godzilla as it distracted the MUTOs who rushed to their nest to find it destroyed, granting Godzilla a reprieve. The female M.U.T.O then noticed Ford and attempted to kill him. Godzilla, having gained his second wind, intervened and returned the favor by blasting the female M.U.T.O with his atomic breath twice, knocking her down long enough for Ford to load the bomb onto the boat, and for Godzilla to kill the male before saving Ford's life once again by killing the female. With the MUTO's EMP ability no longer being in effect, Ford got the boat working but was too injured to move. Not long afterward, he was saved by a helicopter and was airlifted out as the bomb exploded harmlessly out at sea. The next day, Ford reunites with his family as they spot Godzilla on the news, seemingly dead from the battle, only to rise up and return to the sea.

*Yang Xiao Long voice* Where can I find the source for Ford Brody being declared a National Hero?

Don't you have your own voice?

Anyway, I added that line to the Monarch timeline script because I figured it was self-evident. Then King of the Monsters made me look like a genius by having the Navy name a ship after him.

*Pyrrha Nikos voice* I don’t have my own voice (I use other characters’ voices to give you guys a little imagination. Plus, since you did a livestream with the other Admins a few months back, I have a pretty good idea of what you sound like. You actually sound like an old friend of mine I miss dearly).


*Lobo (DC) voice* I think I recall seeing that part in the KotM novel, but for some reason, I just didn’t pay attention to it (probably because I read the book the day I bought it, and haven’t touched it since, but thanks for pointing that out). I also just want to say: Good job on that Monarch Documentary (I honestly wish Toho and Legendary would include that in the Blu-Ray release of KotM, but that’s never gonna happen). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

That's the dream, isn't it? I'm curious to see what sort of in-universe featurettes do show up on the KOTM Blu-ray, since Legendary made some for the last two movies.

I wonder why he isn't returning for KOTM of Vs. Kong... Strange.

Probably because one of the most common criticisms of the 2014 film was that Ford was a boring main character.
