Ah, so my stupidity has served a purpose! Thank you!

If people weren't lazy, we wouldn't try to be efficient. If we weren't efficient, we'd never get anything done.

Outstanding move.

Zwei Wing is the best singing duo. Change my mind.

I've only seen the beginning ten min. of War of The Gargantuas.

Godzilla: Making cinematic universes and continuity reboots before Marvel and DC made it cool.

A true fan can acknowledge the bad while still appreciating and cherishing the good.

This should be interesting when debating what is canon.

dk,
Such a debate has never been an issue because they're all canon to their specific continuities--There is no singular canon.

Example: Godzilla vs. Biollante is canon to the Heisei Continuity, but not any other. Simple as that.

The MCU and DCEU are nothing compared to the "GCU".

XarKhaan,
Good catch. Didn't realize I had missed that one. Corrected.

Some people believe Godzilla 54 is part of the Megaguirus continuity.

I like the approach of just having there be different timelines rather than bringing canon into it. Especially for a series as big as godzilla.

The true shark boy,
The movie shows and explains explicitly different events that took place in 1954. Godzilla looked like the MireGoji in 1954 and was not killed by the Oxygen Destroyer.

I just told my entire english class about the symbolism of Godzilla 1954, and the effects of nuclear power.

@Gmkgoji,

That's cool! What did they think about it?
