Could Godzilla Potentially Die?

This is something I've been thinking quite a bit about since the recent confirmation that Burning Godzilla would be a thing in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. While that does seem pretty cool, it's also important to remember that when this thing happened in Godzilla vs. Destroyah that he basically dies in a burning hot explosion. So this, plus some other bits and pieces of evidence in the most recent trailer right down to Madison Russell (played by Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown) asking "is he gonna be okay?" Along with the scene where we see Godzilla in what appears to not be him in a beaten state, although granted it could very well be all things considered, but in a state where he's suddenly not feeling well, like he knows something is wrong with him and that his life might very come to an end one of these days. Honestly we can't know for absolute certain, and for all we know the way Burning Godzilla is handled in this and in any possible future movies might very well be different from what it was in Godzilla vs. Destroyah. But if what has been presented is to be believed, this Godzilla could very well one day suffer the same catastrophic fate that befell Godzilla back in 1995.

Considering the history alone, I cannot see Godzilla dying out- in a movie or as a series/franchise. Godzilla seems too iconic. I suppose if Godzilla does die, a couple things could happen. 1- Godzilla dies and humanity goes extinct soon after since we no longer have that protection. 2- Godzilla dies 1998 style but leaves offspring (I can't see it happening since it enraged a lot of fans). 

If Godzilla dying also means the end of the franchise, then I think it would be fitting for humanity to die too- with a whimper. What a great cautionary tale that could be.

You guys have seen the original Gojira (1954) and Godzilla vs Destroyah, right? Of course, he always come back.

I have another theory... if the whole hollow earth theme is gonna be played out in this monsterverse… then it stands to reason that an offspring of Godzilla's species... could be lurking somewhere deep within the hollow earth... just like this current Godzilla was doing before he was awakened. In nature... propagation of species is common place. Without propagation... every living thing would inevitably die off and that is a fact. So if Godzilla is the last of his kind... like Kong is (or so we think)… then their deaths would mean imbalance in nature (monsterverse nature of coarse). Mothra lays eggs... Mutos spawn... I'm certain if Rodan had a mate... eggs would be laid... and even the skull crawlers propagated... so If there is any possible future for this franchise to continue with Godzilla as it's main monster... killing him off would not be the best idea. This after all is not the same Godzilla from 1954. It's more like a Showa Godzilla... and if these movies are crafted right... they could continue on for at least 20 years making other kaiju films in the same vein as MCU... and make boatloads of money in the process. That is if TOHO joins the party and get money out of the deal too. I know if I were behind the whole thing... that's what I would do. Junior (you know whom I'm referring too) was an offspring. Hatched from an egg. So think in those terms... what if there is an egg and when the MUTO's went on a tare... Godzilla went right after them with a purpose because they were a threat to the propagation of species... in particular... Godzilla's. He wasted no time in hunting them down and killing them. The questions would be... why... and to what ends ? The answer... survival of his species... and all the others that do not pose a threat to natures balance.

Just a thought mind you... but has anyone considered the possibility that there may be two Godzillas in this movie... and that one of them dies... and the other comes out of the Atlantic ocean and finishes the fight with Ghidorah and defeats him ? Burning Godzilla(90's) ends up dying... and offspring takes his place... so if there is a version of burning Godzilla in this film... it could be the one who dies... and then gets replaced by an offspring. (I love theories because you can imagine just about anything or any possibility)

I think I heard somewhere that it’s in Legendary’s contract that Godzilla cannot die in their movies.

^Correct. Though I wonder if stipulations can be made for finales. We don't know what's changed since 2014.

Of course he won‘t die. Maybe Legendary will trick us in the movie...that there will be a short moment when we shall think he is dead...shock moment. By the way...He must fight Kong in the 2020 movie. My guess: Mothra will die, and KG 100%

How can somebody think the "is he gonna be okay?" line is about Godzilla? The only Godzilla movies where humans gave a fuck about Godzilla were the cheesiest ones.

Serizawa seems to care.
