The possibilities for monsters from a similar origin as Godzilla is infinitely more interesting than a monster that is just a Godzilla clone. Likewise, as some mentioned, it’s interesting to have an underwater battle/scene that takes place for the bulk of the film.

While it’s probably a coincidence, this reminds me of the Devonian arc with Titanosaurus, Manda, and Gezora vs Godzilla in Godzilla rulers of the earth.

Or something like Nurse from Ultraseven.

Agreed, having monsters spawned from similar ways to Godzilla is not just more interesting but a very organic way to tie the narrative back to the original. I'd bring back Titanosaurus as the main creature Godzilla fights with two new sea kaiju. Whenever Titanosaurus properly returns, I want him to be handled with care and respect since he was one of the first kaiju I ever saw besides Godzilla.

I've always wanted to see Titanosaurus return.

Since suits and water don't mix, this would be an ideal story to tell through animation.

Or they could have used effects to make it look like they were underwater like specific filters.

I would've liked these three new monsters to be rebooted versions of Ganimes, Gezora, and Kamoebas.

Reviving this thread because apparently some concept art has cropped up from this thing. Including the design of the now named "Mechagodzilla II Kai" and.. whatever the heck that massive thing fighting Godzilla is. :shock:

That monster makes me think of Gatanozoa, but I like it.

It's always funny when people talk about an unused Heisei film treatment as if it would have been anything different from the rest of the stuff we were getting in the second half of that series.

Note this wasn't concept art, it's an illustration made specifically for the mook it appeared in, but it is based on designs that were submitted to Toho along with the proposal. Really dig the design of MG II Kai, pulls off the serpentine look really well.

The less you know about a concept, the easier it is to fill in the blanks with how you would have done it.

I think that aspect makes it easy to have rose tinted glasses on what could have been. See it a lot not just with this fandom but others as well, where people will tend to give unused concepts the benefit of the doubt.
If it bites... don't mess with it!
