I would love to see it continue from GMK, but this time use Anguirus and Varan.

Honestly with very little tweaking, G2000, GvsM, and Kiryu Saga could have fit into the same continuity. Honestly baffled me why the anthology route was taken and yet never really committed to outside of GMK.

On second thought, it would be interesting to have the Godzilla 2000 continuity expanded a bit. I'd like to see how Japan and the world tries to deal with Godzilla after his battle against Orga and give more backstory to the Shinoda family, the Godzilla Prediction Network and their rivalry against Katagiri.

What do you mean? GxM, GMK, GxMG, and GFW all take time to establish their new continuities.

Which I feel more or less was a waste of time. Does Godzilla's behavior really change all that much if G2k, GvM, and GxMG were all the same Godzilla? Does the way people react to Godzilla ever wind up sounding like it couldn't have happened in either of those three?

This isn't me saying they should have been all in continuity with one another, but more saying nothing really felt like it was gained, to me, by hitting the reset button each time.

Kiryu saga does phone it in (and I say that as someone who enjoys those movies) but it seemed to have the most world building out of them all probably cause it had a sequel.
Always thought that back in the Heisei Era, Toho should've had alongside the Rebirth of Mothra series, a Mechagodzilla film. One year a Rebirth flick for the more family friendly . The next, Toho would release a more balls to wall, Jerry Bruckheimer/Michael Bay, flick featuring a new UNGCC Mechagodzilla pitted against other monsters attacking Japan. Or called in by other United Nations member nations to deal with their own kaiju threats. And likewise the Kiryu Saga could've always gone beyond TOKYO S.O.S. with a new Kiryu being built to deal with both the possibility of Godzilla's return. And what ever other beastie we know is lurking around the corner. Heck, I thought that the 50th anniversary film would've, should've likewise involved a new KIryu, Godzilla, ,and Mothra dealing with King Ghidorah.

And the time line of GODZILLA 2000 with the open ended nature of it could've gone a lot of places with. Still wouldn't mind visiting the alternate universe where GODZILLA REBORN ! got greenlit.

At this point....I would very very much want a sequel to Godzilla 2000.
