Ultima had a bunch of moments where he did things remarkably similar to Legendary or Shin. I think Toho is just as interested in creating a "visual continuity" to connect the films better.
MechaGoji Bro7503 wrote: Mon Nov 21, 2022 9:52 pm Yeah, having more brand synchronization is definitely on the mind of Toho's high brass right now. It makes sense, it brings incentive for consumers to stay into the franchise more and causes them to want to buy the new stuff. SP, Battle Lines, & all those damn hot sauces are examples.
I totally agree with both of y'all. I think they're trying to really build a base for the franchise using marketing. Mickey Mouse makes more money for Disney on merchandise than he does in actual cartoons or films. I think to an extent the same is likely true about Godzilla. And I think despite how disparate all the takes on Godzilla in Reiwa have been, there's definitely a throughline of vibe with Godzilla's portrayal.

Reiwa Godzilla might work in Japan but the portrayal is the exact reason why you can build a film and follow Kong as a character and can't do so with Godzilla.

So what I'm getting from this is that the World of Godzilla movie is likely to have several of Toho's more obscure kaiju appearing as unevolved pre-Godzilla forms that must fuse to create Godzilla so big mean not-quite-green machine can crack open the Mechagodzilla hot sauce battle to challenge Bagan to a hot sauce drinking contest for the fate of Tokyo. Am I inferring this rightly?
Sounds good, sounds like the most kino Reiwa film yet.
I unapologetically, wholeheartedly, and without a doubt hate Godzilla vs Kong.

I keep wondering if this film will involve the Ni-Go project.

Would require a lot of historical revisionism for that to work, as interesting as that would be.

Just the odd 2 Godzilla thing that came out 3 weeks ago-ish. I see more and more people talking about it on YouTube.

It was debunked as soon as it was posted as far the majority of us know. Some people have said based on the plot doesn't seem that far fetched when you break it down but the majority believe it to be fake.

Yeah but that video explicitly states those are just rumours at the moment, if you even choose to buy them please take with a heavy grain of salt. There’s little to no reason to think these have merit at this point.

Just read the 4Chan "leak." If it is legit, I wouldn't be 100% against it. It really depends on how it actually plays out, since it reads as a mixture of G'54 and War of the Gargantuas.
Spoiler:
The aspect of the United States being portrayed as the "bad guys" after droping the nuke on Japan is cliche as all hell and the biggest red flag. I don't mind the additional details to the creation of the Oxygen Destroyer and Dr. Serizawa, however. I'm postponning my thoughts on a whale/orca-based "non-mutated" Godzilla. I've yet to see any fan designs that do such a thing well (whalezillas, that is). However, the way its described sounds like it could be cool. I'm not a big fan of having it in the Godzilla family tree of sorts, but as a close "friend" to Godzilla prior to his own mutation/rampages is something interesting. I just wonder what name they go with. The idea of it saving Godzilla from the Oxygen Destroyer is also a bit of a red flag, since it reads as if Dr. Serizawa is able to "target" with it as if its a missile or gun.

The role of the whale kaiju sounds like it could easily be written for someone like Anguirus trying to stop Godzilla from decimating humanity. Again, I'm open to the whale kaiju since it is something we've never seen before. Just iffy on it somehow being related to Godzilla directly.
I could see this leak being fake for many reasons, but it also sounds like a pretty safe road to go down following Shin. I'm just glad, if this is legit, it doesn't continue the idea of a "evolving" Godzilla like in Shin and SP.

The timing is the main reason it's probably fake. It came out less than a day later if I recall.
