So I know Shin 2 got canceled, but if it did happen what do you guys think it would be like? Would there be new monsters, or would they make a MechaShin? Let me know!
Can't cancel what was never announced or in production to begin with. There were never plans for a Shin Godzilla 2.
It's possible that a sequel to Shin Godzilla would focus on
1. Godzilla re-awakening and possibly evolving and becoming more powerful so that humanity couldn't use the same tactic to stop him.
2. The humanoid Godzillas (Godzilloids?) separating from Godzilla and becoming a threat to humanity by having large numbers and advanced intelligence.
3. Other monsters appearing, either being nuclear mutations or directly spawning from Godzilla himself.
Oh I thought I saw an article about cancelling Shin 2 and starting a new Godzilla Cinematic Universe.
1. That would make the sequel kind of a hopeless movie since Godzilla cannot be killed since he keeps gaining immunities with each attack. Also how would you stop godzilla in the sequel? There are three ways this could end: A new monster, possibly outside of being part of Godzilla's biology, invent a new super weapon or humanity dies.
2. This idea although interesting would have some godzilla fans cry that it would no longer be a true godzilla movie.
3. This option isn't distinct enough from options 1 and 2 since naturally a new Godzilla movie will feature a new monster.
I do wish we could have seen the weird Godzilla minions in action they looked insane.
"How would you stop Godzilla in the sequel?"
They wouldn't. Godzilla would continue to evolve and humanity's attempt to stop him would be futile. Godzilla and his spawns would become a modern extinction event. The small remnants of humanity would no longer be the dominant species, they would be forced to live in the shadows of the monsters they created.
That would be cool, I feel like not doing a Shin 2 would be a missed opportunity. Also random thought my sister thought it was called Shin Godzilla because he had big shins! :D
Yeah, that's pretty much been my biggest complaint about the Millennium and Reiwa series, they can't seem to stick with any continuity, constantly resetting the timeline after one or two films, which takes away a lot of potential. Even when they do have films with continuity (like the Polygon Trilogy) they still ignore the potential interesting world building ideas and it ends up feeling like a huge missed opportunity. It's especially annoying when they end the movies on cliffhangers that could make for an interesting story, like Godzilla's heart beating on the ocean floor in GMK, or the humanoid creatures spawning out of his tail at the end of Shin. Because they don't do anything with the idea, the scenes end up just feeling kind of pointless and it's like they're only there for shock value. That's one of the reasons why I've wanted the MonsterVerse to continue, because I feel like there's a lot of potential in the series and I really want to see it realized.
Also, my Dad said the same thing about Shin Godzilla's shins, XD
Yeah Millennium is my least favorite. Shin and Millenium end up being like a Marvel movie with an after credits scene but no second movie.
Well I did mention in one of my three outcomes that Shin Godzilla would wipe out humanity should he devealop anymore immunities, (I refuse to call it evolving because evolving requires needing a mate in macroscopic lifeforms)
How about pokemon
In pokemon they are just aging since when they have children they start off in their early forms rather than later forms.
But back on topic, I can only see doom if Shin Godzilla were to awaken. It would be bad for humanity in either case regardless if humans can devises away to stop godzilla permeantely or live under it in fear or go extinct
wait so a fish ages into an octopus?
Most of those write-ups were misinformed or click bait English articles. The Japanese sources confirm there were never sequel plans.
I do remember a few articles saying the cast was willing and happy to do a sequel though
I love reiwa for diversity, because its an era, not a series.
Also the humans on the tail. Even if it is "shock" that doesnt make it a negative for me. It fits in well with the Gojira in that movie and makes sense. It also leaves for artistic interpretation. Honestly the movie is so much better in japanese though.
Also why did the fanbase start calling it reiwa when Shin came out? Reiwa didnt start until 2019?
Yeah and Toho was apparently interested in doing a sequel as long as Anno came back, but he didn't want to. So whatever motivation there was to do a sequel (and there was plenty) never made it to a planning stage.
As for why Shin Godzilla is filed under Reiwa, that's actually Toho's doing. They retroactively file Shin Godzilla under Reiwa, just like they did Return of Godzilla for Heisei.
"wait so a fish ages into an octopus?"
Not too different from a xenomorph which basically goes from a scorpion to a snake to a man-bug to a theropod-like egg factory
well not all growth is natural i guess. Gojira S.P and tunicates prove that.
Well thank you guys for the info
