Could Jets Jaguar work in the Monsterverse?

Post by Thatguy4683 »

This is a difficult question to ask, because of Godzilla Singular Point, I think Jet Jaguar can work in a serious setting but I can understand this character being a little bit too much for the Monsterverse

I voted no. I mean, I think JJ can work in a more serious setting, could be done well for a western audience, if done well and intelligently - but after the last two films, I no longer associate serious, well done, or intelligent with the MonsterVerse.
I unapologetically, wholeheartedly, and without a doubt hate Godzilla vs Kong.

Usual shitty Vakani take aside i do agree with him to an extent that, while Jet Jaguar could be done very well, i don’t think any of the current MV directors (maybe Dougherty. Huge ‘maybe’ though) could successfully pull it off

Eh, I agree with Vakanai. Possible in a vacuum but they'd never be able to pull it off earnestly and would be constantly be cracking jokes and nods to the audience about it.

He's a tough one to understand, and don't take it personally. It's him and I who have an ancient rivalry.

"Jets" Jaguar makes him sound like a fixer for the mob.
I love it.
Anyways, any storyteller worth their weight in salt could make just about anything work so why not Monsterverse JJ? We already got Hollow Earth for goodness sake.

We've already established mecha units so sure, why not? It could work.

As long as he PUNCH PUNCH PUNCHes and eats sushi from a pail, I'm sure audiences will be just fine with him.

Jet Jaguar could definitely work. In fact, considering the fact that they freaking downloaded an ancient energy source like a Google extension, I'd say they could even work the size-changing in. Just make him a colony of self-duplicating nanobots that form into a humanoid shape.

And no, he should not be a jaeger by any circumstance.

I do like King of the Monsters - but that doesn't make it good. It's a deeply flawed movie with a bunch of poor decisions that established the dumbing down of the MV that GvK sadly continued to it's ultimate conclusion. There's things to like about it, and I enjoy it from time to time, but it's well in the low ballpark of Godzilla movies. So with it starting the trend of "come for the CGI action, what's a plot?" and GvK woefully tripling down on that into a braindead spectacle, I just don't see the MV delivering the goods on Jet Jaguar. It would make him a joke, and not the kind of joke I'd like to see either.

Godzilla SP looks much better as a JJ showing than the MV would be in terms of storytelling. The only thing the MV could do better is the action, because holy crap can they do action.


Keep in mind, while I talk a lot of crap about GvK in terms of plot and characterization, and rightfully so, I still plan to snag the BRD for my collection. Kind of like Batman v Superman that way - one of those movies I play in the background, tuning out the story while I play on my laptop, tablet, or phone, and only look up to watch the kickass action scenes before turning my attention back to my device. It really does deliver on the action front, so it's perfect for that kind of background noise while you do other things sort of watch. Just not a good watch beyond that if you care for storytelling.

TL;DR Yes I like KotM but that doesn't make it good.

I've watched Godzilla vs Megalon. I've probably watched it a good dozen times or so. I can assure you he never ate sushi, from a pail or otherwise.

(Seriously, am I missing a meme or reference or something?)

JJ could work, but, the way it would work best, is on a PR Godzilla crossover. Especially if Godzilla appeared in the PR universe.

Jet Jaguar is already in the format of the jeager names and would fit right in as a Japanese jeager.

I want more Jet Jaguar, but I'd pay good money to prevent a PR MV crossover from ever happening.
