Jurassic World 3: Giganotosaurus To Be The "Villain Boss" Dinosaur

In a recent interview with Impire Magazine, Colin Trevorrow, director of Jurassic World: Dominion 2022, said that the giant predatory dinosaur Giganotosaurus first introduced in the Jurassic series will serve as the " villain boss", like "The Joker" in the DC Cinematic Universe.

Bigger. Scarier. With more teeth

The Jurassic series has gone through five movies so far, and each one has one to a few dinosaurs playing a central role, or as the main villain:
  1. Jurassic Park I: T-Rex
  2. Jurassic Park II: 2 T-Rex
  3. Jurassic Park III: Spinosaurus
  4. Jurassic World I: Indominus Rex Hybrid, aquatic Mosasaur
  5. Jurassic World II (Fallen Kingdom):  Indoraptor Hybrid
And following the trend of “Bigger. Scarier. With more teeth", we are expected to meet the giant Giganotosaurus - often referred to as "Giga" for short.

Giganotosaurus is not a hybrid dinosaur but a purebred, science-based species. According to archeology, Gigan is believed to be one of the largest terrestrial predatory dinosaurs known, living in South America (Argentina), with many special features that can be called a Southern Tyrannosaurus Rex version, to correspond to the Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex) discovered mainly in North America.

A Giganotosaurus is typically 12.5m long, weighing 9-10 tons, so this dinosaur is taller and longer but slimmer than Tyrannosaurus Rex. However, it could not displace the African Spinosaurus as the largest terrestrial predatory dinosaur.

In Jurassic World 3, maybe Giga is even bigger than the above scientific parameters because of the process of DNA synthesis and nurturing.

The Origin of Giganotosaurus in Jurassic World 3

Giga is not one of the dinosaurs that escaped Jurassic Park or released from the mansion, because if it was among them, we would have met it in the previous movies.

According to Colin in the interview,  the Jurassic Park dinosaurs were created by InGen Corporation, while Giga was created by BioSyn Corporation. Giga's home is the amber-rich BioSyn Valley. In the Jurassic Park series, BioSyn was a rival company to InGen, which paid Dennis Nedry to steal dinosaur embryos of the time.

Later, when InGen failed, BioSyn wins a contract to manage the captured dinosaurs around the world, hired by governments. BioSyn claims it's a research facility where they can research the pharmaceutical value of dinosaurs, but BioSyn secretly has other intrigues.

Giga was created to destroy the world; and "it just wants to see the world burn," says Trevorrow.

The film's new trailer shows Giga hunting and terrifying our main human characters including Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen Grady (Chris Pratt); the original Jurassic Park trilogy Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), Alan Grant (Sam Neill), and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern); plus the clone girl Maisie (Isabella Sermon) and the new character Kayla (DeWanda Wise).

Trailer 2 of the movie shows that the young of Raptor Blue (Little Blue or Beta) is "kidnapped", most likely this is part of BioSyn's plot.

Dominion is the finale, closing the 30-year journey of the Jurassic Park - Jurassic World franchise. The film will be premiered in theaters from early June 2022, then will be streamed on Universal's Peacock, Amazon Prime Video, and Starz platforms.
