Per We Got This Covered:
Fans might recall that the name in the header is drawn from another title for the 1965 Godzilla film, Invasion of the Astro-Monster, alternatively called Monster Zero stateside. Said movie sees Godzilla and Rodan sent into outer space to battle King Ghidorah, who an alien species on Planet X has dubbed “Monster Zero.” As such, it looks as if this will also be the name given to King Ghidorah in the upcoming sequel, and it’s him who the director’s teasing here.
