I would kill for that. You could have it take place on Earth or in various alien civilizations.

Glad you agree! I've been trying to get around to writing a fan fic or some story with this idea - although writers block keeps preventing me.

I'm going to go a bit out there and say Shockirus and Gabara!

I think it'll be cool to see a Shockirus again due to it's size. Just imagine a swarm of these things invading cities!

For Gabara, there can be a lot of potential here.. You can have him be more of an intelligent and cruel kaiju. Having him invade a kaiju's brain like a parasite and destroying their memories, twisting them into something else. He may also attempt to deprive them of sleep too..

I'd love for Dagahra to get another role in a film though the cameo in Monster Planet was nice

The top choices so far definitely seem to be Anguirus, Gigan, Hedorah, Megalon, Varan and Baragon. Anguirus, Gigan and Baragon had prominent roles in the Millennium era, with Hedorah having his sad little cameo in Final Wars. Megalon and Varan haven't reappeared since the Showa days. Megalon has never been one of my top favorites but people really seem to want him back.

Added in 17 days 5 hours 37 minutes 14 seconds:
Bumping for any remaining votes out there.

As things stand -
#1 - Anguirus
#2 - Gigan
#3 - Hedorah & Megalon
#4 - Varan & Baragon
#5 - Manda, Jet Jaguar & Titanosaurus
#6 - Kamacuras & Gorosaurus
#7 - Kumonga
#8 - Ebirah
#9 - Gabara
#10 - Giant Condor & King Caesar
#11 - Poor Giant Octopus

Yeah, Godzilla wins... sometimes. I mean, he was killed by Dr. Serizawa's patented bubble-bath formula, heartburn, missiles, and poor box office returns, got his ass kicked by a drunken, circus-escaped gorilla, then he was beaten by two newborn worms, yeah some “king”.

;)MY CHOICES
Anguirus: Duh...It's skreoking Anguirus; Godzilla's BFF
Varan: He's came so close to being redone but yet so far. A modern take on him would fit nicely into the Monsterverse or even the Anime.
Baragon & Megalon: Never been my favorites but nowhere close to my least favorites. I think they both have a lot of potential if done right. (Seeing how they are both burrowers)You could even do a story where they have been mortal enemies for eons. Megalon protects Seatopia from Baragon who is a vicious man-eater. The Seatopians see Megalon as their God/Savour and Baragon as their Satan/Adversary. Would work well in Toho or Monsterverse IMO.
Gorosaurus: Because, why not? Surprised he's never reappeared. He's simple enough but could be tweaked a bit to be a bit more formidable. Since all he really is is a huge Theropod, he could really go anywhere but would work extremely well in the Monsterverse. Maybe he was the "King" of Skull Island until Kong's parents trapped him in a cave where he survived for many many years on cave dwelling prey. Maybe an earthquake releases him from his prison? Lots of things you could do with him.
Hedorah: Ah yes, one of my favorites and (IMHO) most UNDERRATED Kaijus. He has only been redone once and they skreoked all over him; making him as pathetic as Gabara. Hedorah modernized and done right could be one of the most powerful, destructive and terrifying Kaijus ever. Hell, the original was one of G's toughest fights in the Showa era. Modernize him and give him back all that was stripped for FW, and you have something truly awesome. Soooo many possibilities and would work in any series. He could even be a different species who evolved in a similar way to Shin but was either of extraterrestrial origin or some creature unknown by science. Then you could have him face off against Shin. Where's my ticket? Lol
Gigan: One of the more popular Kaijus but only appeared once outside of the Showa era. I personally LOVE the FW design and wouldn't mind seeing something similar in a future movie. I've always thought it would be neat to do a Gigan origin story. Maybe about how he was some space dinosaur/avian/whatever the skreonk he was before he was turned into a cyborg by the Nebulans and then show them capture, cyberize (is that even a word? Lol) and raid/conquer other planets using their new weapon. He would also fit nicely in both universes though I don't know what his origin might be if he were in the Monsterverse.
Titanosaurus: would work in a similar way as Gorosaurus. Also not in my favorites but again not least favorites either. I always wanted to see him return. Need more amphibious type Kaijus other than just G. Modernize him, give more power and give him some sort of projectile or breath weapon. I think he could look really awesome modernized in any universe.
And finally (though I'd have chosen a few more not on the list) my 9th choice not listed...
Destoroyah: What's there to say really?! A truly bad a** skreoking Kaiju though overrated as skreok, was still one of G's toughest adversaries of all time. Just imagine a modern Destoroyah. Let that sink in for a minute. Totally. Freaking. Awesome. ;-)

Varan really needs a better movie to justify how great of a monster he is.
why did i have to be the chosen one?

Anguirus and Jet Jaguar need their own spinoff movies, anyone else agree?

I'd love an Anguirus movie. I even have a few ideas how it could be done.

Jet Jaguar, though, has the best chance of going solo. It'd be quite easy to turn him into an Ultraman style hero.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

Picture this. A satellite detects an island with unusual amounts of co2. A team goes to investigate, and finds some large, deep holes on the island, as well as Anguirus. When some of the group disappear, Anguirus is blamed, and Japanese forces are sent out to deal with him. The attack fails, of course, and Anguirus heads out to sea.

Anguirus shows up in Japan, and shortly after, theres high co2 readings in Japan. When this is looked into, the real culprit is found to be a huge worm like creature. A paleontologist tells the characters that fossils resembling Anguirus have been found near unusual fossil remains not unlike the worm. The animals might be natural enemies, and the worm followed Anguirus to japan.

Attempts are made to kill the worm, but then Anguirus engages the worm in battle. Anguirus kills the worm, and then goes back into the hill country of Japan.

Megalon and Dogora. Neither are my favorites in any capacity, but I feel both have awesome potential that, with the right application in a story and newer effects, would be amazing.
