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.

G. H. (Gman)

GiganAdmin4521 XPDec-17-2019 9:28 PMTeam Ghidorah

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.

"'Nostalgic' does not equal 'good,' and 'standards' does not equal 'elitism.'" "Being offended is inevitable. Living offended is your choice."

That is good to hear and the list is a great breakdown.

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

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

"'Nostalgic' does not equal 'good,' and 'standards' does not equal 'elitism.'" "Being offended is inevitable. Living offended is your choice."

BaragonMember111 XPDec-18-2019 2:42 PM

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

 

Im Durp

BaragonMember478 XPDec-18-2019 11:22 PM

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.

G. H. (Gman)

GiganAdmin4521 XPDec-19-2019 1:01 AMTeam Ghidorah

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.

"'Nostalgic' does not equal 'good,' and 'standards' does not equal 'elitism.'" "Being offended is inevitable. Living offended is your choice."

Gmkgoji

RodanMember1789 XPDec-19-2019 10:55 AM

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

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

AnguirusMember1240 XPDec-20-2019 9:46 AMTeam Godzilla

@Gmkgoji,

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

Don’t cry, you are perfect

G. H. (Gman)

GiganAdmin4521 XPNov-25-2020 9:28 PMTeam Ghidorah

The debate rages on over the Megagurius continuity. Some Toho sources include G'54--If only as an alternate version of the events.

"'Nostalgic' does not equal 'good,' and 'standards' does not equal 'elitism.'" "Being offended is inevitable. Living offended is your choice."

G. H. (Gman)

GiganAdmin4521 XPMay-20-2021 8:08 PMTeam Ghidorah

Added Singular Point to the list. As well as the Hanna-Barbera continuity and The Mysterians to the Heisei continuity.

"'Nostalgic' does not equal 'good,' and 'standards' does not equal 'elitism.'" "Being offended is inevitable. Living offended is your choice."
