Kaiju I'd Like To See In Possible Future Monsterverse Movies5,655 Views6 RepliesAdd A Reply
As we all know, the contract between ToHo and Legendary Pictures ends pretty much after Godzilla vs Kong. But with the all the hype that's going around for King Of The Monsters, many fans like me are hoping that ToHo gives Legendary the ability to make more Monsterverse movies. If ToHo gives Legendary Pictures the rights to more of their monsters, which ones would be brought into the Monsterverse? We all know that Mike Dougherty wants to include Biollante and Gigan into the Monsterverse, and I'm totally down with seeing them in the possible future. I actually want to see Gigan a little bit more, mostly due to all of the awesome concept art I've seen of him. Here's an example: I'd also really want to see Destoroyah. Since we know that Godzilla will transform into Burning Godzilla (I'm refusing to call it Fire Godzilla. It just doesn't sound right) in King Of The Monsters, it kinda makes sense to at least introduce the concept of Destoroyah into the Monsterverse. SPOILERS AHEAD- I know that Burning Godzilla won't have the Red-Spiral Ray, instead, he has the ability to produce nuclear pulses just by walking. And it may make even more sense to see Destoroyah in the Monsterverse, as it was teased a few months back that While Godzilla and Ghidorah are fighting, either Monarch or the Military will deploy the use of an Oxygen-Destroyer type weapon on them, with Godzilla being badly injured in the process, while Ghidorah comes out just fine. Mechagodzilla is kind of tough though. It's main role in the Godzilla series is to protect humanity from Godzilla and other monsters like him. (Excluding the Showa Mechagodzilla. He was a villain.) The only possible reason that I can see Mechagodzilla into the Monsterverse is when Sally Hawkins says that "They're Everywhere" in the second trailer for the movie, possibly referring to other monsters like Godzilla, Ghidorah, Rodan, and Mothra. If this is the case, then Mechagodzilla's role in the Monsterverse will most likely be a defender of the Earth, protecting humanity from Monsters like Godzilla that may appear. Finally, I have my last possible introduction: Anguirus. A LOT of people have been open to the idea of Anguirus being in the Monsterverse, mostly due to the mysterious mountain-kaiju that was briefly seen in the second trailer. I myself thought that it was Anguirus, and was excited that he may be seen in the Monsterverse. I actually have a lot of respect for him. I guess you could say that he's one of my favorite monsters. The reason why I have so much respect for him is that he's usually seen as Godzilla's unofficial sidekick, as well as an underdog in many fights that he has participated in. I feel like he needs some love too, and that's exactly what IDW did. In the first issue of IDW's Godzilla:Legends, Anguirus is fighting a monster that most people thought he would quickly die to. In the first issue, Anguirus fights Destoroyah, and it is one heck of a fight. Destoroyah does seem to get the best of Anguirus at first, but Anguirus manages to pull off the seemingly impossible, turning the tables against Destoroyah and actually WINNING. Anguirus my friend, you have my respect! And that's pretty much the kaiju that I'd like to see in the future. If there are any other monsters that you'd like to see that i did't mention, leave a comment below. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts!
GojiFanPat You know, I honestly would want Gorosaurus, Anguirus, Baragon, and both of Godzilla's sons (Yes, both Minilla and Godzilla Jr. from the Heisei Era. It would be interesting to see them interacting with each other as brothers.) to be included in the Monsterverse. Basically, I'm a sucker for dinosaurs (and prehistoric reptiles in general), although Battra and Megaguirus wouldn't be a bad option, either.

I will always want Mechagodzilla being in the Monsterverse. I know it is an outlandish idea and that it is campy, but giant mechas have been part of the kaiju genre for centuries. when you are making a shared universe with kaiju you NEED giant mechas. It just needs time to set them up and properly explain the reason for mechas in a realistic way for them to work, but there are a lot of talented writers in Hollywood how can possibly do it.
The same could basically be said about Gigan and we all know that we need more of him in any way, shape or form.
As for other kaiju, I am so confident that if there is going to be a Godzilla 3 and they could use an existing Toho kaiju as the villain, it would have to be Biollante. I have already made a topic on why, but I won't repeat myself here.
Anguirus is almost a must-have. He is basically the number 6 of Toho's top 5 even though, when you think about it, he hasn't been in a lot of movies. With his easy to explain origin, already realistic design and having a clear role in the Godzilla franchise, Anguirus would just be perfect for the Monsterverse.
Godzilla JR./Minilla would also be a great opportunity for America to redeem themselves after the knocked Jurrasic park raptors from the 1998 movie and overall could give Godzilla more character as a father figure.
Long live the king...
I honestly want all of the toho kaiju in the monsterverse.
Zwei Wing is the best singing duo. Change my mind.
Any Kaiju is fine with me...except Megalon.
Give Zilla a second chance for the monsterverse
^ It would be amazing to see both American Godzilla's fighting against each other.
Long live the king...
