The Fate Of The Reiwa Series?1,665 Views13 RepliesAdd A Reply
With the news that Legendary has the right to continue using Godzilla (and possibly some other Toho kaiju) in the MonsterVerse, it seems like Toho may have dropped their "World of Godzilla" idea in favor of working with Legendary to continue the MonsterVerse. But what does that mean for the Reiwa series going forward? Will it continue after Godzilla: Singular Point? Do you think that Toho will still produce Godzilla media as the MonsterVerse continues?
I think so, but they'll probably ditch the Reiwa and move forward with the "World of Godzilla" initiative.
I agree actually. They’ve been far more interested in they’re more recent projects, but I find it hard they want to phase Shin out entirely, he’s been very profitable for them, ie: rides, merchandise, etc.
If involved in this MV series, I’d kinda want to see shin show up at a point. but I don’t know
Im confused by what you mean by “ditch reiwa” that would imply they just stop making things post 2016 which is when the reiwa era is.
As in the "Shin" content, but you had a good point by the merch sales.
If they eventually did a alternate dimension/multiverse plot point with Shin Godzilla (or possibly other Toho incarnations) showing up and meeting the MonsterVerse Godzilla, I would be all for it!

The only films currently categorized in this era are Shin Godzilla and the GODZILLA anime trilogy.
A "World of Godzilla" would still be part of the Reiwa series--So I don't really understand what's being said here.
That said, the World of Godzilla thing has been mentioned once in passing and never heard of again. That was around three years ago and it was never an official announcement. I'm sure (and hopeful) Toho has something up their sleeves, but there's no guarantee of what it is.
My overall question is what does the MonsterVerse continuing mean for Toho's future projects? It seems somewhat unlikely that Toho will make any live action movies during this time, so I'm wondering if they have plans to continue the Reiwa series after Singular Point. I assume they'll still produce Godzilla media during this, but I'm curious as to what that could potentially be.
Depends on what the deal entails. We have previously been told that two Godzilla movies can not be in production at the same time. (Sans animated films.) Which makes it all the more interesting that Legendary's next Godzilla project is a television series instead of a film.
I highly doubt Toho would have agreed to anything that halts plans they currently have in motion. So if the same deal and the same loophole applies to both studios... well...
I think this could possibly mean Godzilla's MonsterVerse future could be mostly TV, with at least one or two more movies. I have a feeling Toho has got something up their sleeve...
maybe a crossover with pacific rim
shin goji vs. shin ultraman
Also, how about Godzilla Vs. Shin Godzilla?
