For some reason the idea of having MechaGoji in the Monsterverse just irks me. Dunno why
“Angilas!” -like every American Godzilla dub
I think it's the world that the Monsterverse is set in.
It's basically our real world, so the idea of a Mechagodzilla legitimately built solely by Human hands is unrealistic on paper and doesn't jive with the thematic worldbuilding. Contrary to popular belief, simply doing things for the fun of it isn't always gonna pan out.
One ridiculous premise doesn't necessarily imply another; we suspend our disbelief for giant monsters, but that's because the creators went to great lengths to make them blend into an otherwise mundane universe.
The MonsterVerse is a fictitious world. If a filmmaker/screenwriter wants to make it happen, then they can do so for any other monster to appear.
As for the topic: none. I would be more than welcoming to see any other monster.
Well RIP Mechagodzilla I guess. :(
Honestly, I don't know a specific kaiju that I wouldn't want except for the obvious ones like Gabara.
Long live the king...
That sucks that everyone is against Mechagodzilla. I honestly thought that it could be used as some sort of defense system when monsters like Godzilla attack. But then again, everyone does have their opinion, and I respect that.
Also Gorosaurus, Baragon, Megaguirus, Hedorah, and Kamacuras would NOT work in my opinion.
You know, with Ghidorah being an alien in the monsterverse, Mechagodzilla would not be out of the question
Zwei Wing is the best singing duo. Change my mind.
Since 2 of these are already in it I guess this doesn't mean much but Ghidorah, Mothra, and MechaGodzilla would get my votes.
Well I guess for Mecha to appear, it would have to be of alien origin, like what is implied with King Ghidorah. Of course, then the question would be asked why aliens want to build a mecha version of the big G if they simply could send in more organic monsters. But in a Hollywood movie, so long as they can come up with some reason that can be sold to the audience, Mecha might not be totally ruled out. It all depends on how it is portrayed.
As for me personally, please, no Gabara.
The realistic ones. Boring.
G. H. (Gman): How do you define what is and what is not "boring". Or are you suggesting having Jet Jaguar popping out suddenly in KOTM to say "hi" is a great idea?
Sounds like a wonderful idea. I'm in.
Sounds like Deus Ex Machina to me, G.H.Gman.
Not to mention thematically, narratively, AND logically clashing with the established rules of the universe, at least right now.
I'm always baffled when people don't take such things into consideration. It's not simply the degree of ridiculousness being suspended for disbelief, but the context in which it occurs. When you want to introduce entirely unfamiliar elements, you have to either build them up by laying groundwork or start off with them as the basic premise.
For the Monsterverse right now, they started with the premise of giant monsters hidden in the very real modern world with a few elements of conspiracy organizations. They started expanding that premise, but in logical ways that naturally fit the basic premise with increased variety in the kinds of monsters and the Hollow Earth Theory. And now, they're introducing more new elements that still naturally extend from the basic premise, like these creatures being worshiped as gods and potentially coming from beyond the confines of Earth.
But the famous mechs? No groundwork laid at all. No hints, teases, nothing, to suggest that the universe is gearing up to go all Pacific Rim. Now, could it happen still? Sure, but I'd imagine it'd start slowly with incremental but noticeable technological progress being very obviously shown.
Then build the groundwork. The MCU began with a semi-grounded story about a genius able to create world-changing technology and now we have aliens and talking racoons flying around. No one knew it was going to [try to] establish an entire cinematic universe that broke away from the film's established tone even as audiences were watching it. Kevin Feige wasn't even sure they were going to do it and that's after they established the possibility in a post-credit sequence.
It blows my mind that fans of a series that went from 1954 to the insanity of 1965 can't let go and allow it to lead up to something bonkers. It's not like the current tone has particularly delivered the best of the best anyway.
You say that like I and others denied the possibility outright.
We want these stories to go the extra mile to make it work, and that means not rushing in. We don't want monsters like Mechagodzilla and Gigan right now because right now isn't the time, just like how Thanos had to wait until the conditions were met where him taking to the main scene was the logical course of action.
I always says this: put in the effort first before you rush in to the next zany insane thing, ESPECIALLY if you didn't start with the zany insane thing.
Some seem to be forgetting we have a whole movie coming out to help make that bridge. No one is saying mechagodzilla needs to be in kotm, but now the world knows monsters exist how they react brings in the chance of a mecha or cyborg.
G. H. (Gman): Haha, good thing you aren't directing KOTM. Although I suppose Jet Jaguar could be in the monsterverse..eventually. Just not right now, and hopefully not in KOTM. It would destroy the tone of the movie right then and there.
We seem to be pretty sure of the film's tone before it's released.
In any case, as Durp said, I never suggested Jet Jaguar actually show up in KotM. (Unless good reason was given.) The post asked about future movies and post-KotM is certainly the future. Groundwork should be a given. I would hope a cinematic universe doesn't stagnate and maintains a singular tone based on one film.
(Not that I particularly expect the Monsterverse will continue beyond 2020 anyway...)
Only one I really hope they don’t add is any sort of Godzilla offspring. I feel like we might be seeing some mecha-king ghidorah, biollante, or destroyah. They said something about a bio terrorist organization having their own ideas for the monsters, so I wouldn’t at all be surprised if it happens. As long as they leave Manilla out of it with his “don’t worry I won’t hurt ya”, and little Godzilla with his utter usefulness
“Monsters are tragic beings; they are born too tall, too strong, too heavy, they are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy.”- Ishiro Honda
For me, I honestly would want to say Gabara, Hedorah, and SpaceGodzilla, with the fact that the latter just isn't possible according to the logic and lore of the Monsterverse.

Man, this thread aged hilariously.
I may get rocks thrown at me for that, but I'd like not to see Mechagodzilla again, as I never got myself to like this iteration of good ol' Goji.
I'd take the original, biological version any day of the week. But if one of you guys is a die hard Mechagodzilla fan, which movie would you recommend so that I can change my mind? I'm soon going to finish a report about the Spain golden visa https://tranio.com/articles/golden-visa-in-spain/ and wouldn't be opposed to a nice movie to watch after that.
