Ive noticed a trend with the franchise. Each era tends to start dipping into futurism, via technology, and with the case of the animated trilogy, a future setting. MV has been shifting towards the asthetic, and SP did an interesting balance.

While the idea of godzilla in the past has been explored in comics and hinted at in MV, we haven't actually seen that.

 

So what do you want to see?

The Past.

We've seen a lot futuristic Godzilla stories, but we really haven't seen a lot set in the past. I really hope the MonsterVerse does more with that idea, because I think the idea of Godzilla and other giant monsters existing in the past could really be interesting, showing them alongside prehistoric life and possibly playing a role in humanity's past. Imagine a tribe of prehistoric humans attempting to hunt a herd of mammoths, but it suddenly gets interrupted by two titans fighting each other, later the tribe is shown depicting the battle with cave paintings and carvings, viewing the titans as some type of deity or spiritual message.

BBC documentary style?

Godzilla... one of the largest animals ever to walk this planet. This animal....

I say future, like a post apocalypses one like the anime trilogy but live action with a hollywood budget, preferably a hollywood production so we can have diverse locales.

Future so that there can be futuristic tech and powerful weaponry, and that writers can explore crazy concepts without going down the “fantasy” route. Enormous skyscrapers can help convey the scale of monsters better than ancient terrain.

What about giant mountains?

HinikunaGoji,

You can try and place kaiju next to mountains (on accurate scale) can see how that looks. Kong was on mountains in a scene in GvK and he felt no bigger than a normal ape due to the lack of intuitive size references. Mountains are simply too big for monsters; they make them look small in comparison.

That could have actually been the premise of an episode of the show

Skull Island was fine but Kong felt nowhere as big as Godzilla (probably because he wasn't at the time). I'll admit that the sense of scale is present in one of the posters where he stood much taller than the terrain surrounding him. In the opening sequence of GvK, Kong was standing in enormous rainforest trees and the canopy was at his shoulder level. That made him feel small (not much larger than he was in K:SI). When Kong was standing next to the skyscrapers of Hong Kong, he felt much bigger.

Not all Gojis need to be 300 ft tall, plus the Goji anime got away with its giant scale.

What if they showed Godzilla alongside dinosaurs, specifically some of the largest ones, like Argentinosaurus or Patagotitan?

SasquaDash,

It would work, of course. But placing dinosaurs in every shot Godzilla is in wouldn't work out so well. I'm sure with the right camerawork and VFX tricks they can convey that scale, but I think it will be hard to be as impactful as Godzilla stomping around in a city. 

HinikunaGoji,

I don't think the size of Godzilla would matter that much, what matters is the sense of scale. I'm sure Godzilla Earth would have felt even bigger in a city, towering above the skyline. Recall that the film is set in the future.

That was my point, in my eyes the Goji anime got away with that giant scale, without the building s to contrast

I was trying to find a post that you made a while ago, that came to mind but it seems to have been deleted, or it was never real and something my brain made up
