Crossovers you would have liked to have seen

Postby SickleFeather » Wed Jun 14, 2017 2:48 pm

what kind of crossovers with Godzilla would you like to have seen during IDW's run with the franchise?

We all know that during the 1990's Dark Horse run, there were plans for Godzilla to have crossovers with Alien vs Predator, Superman and (funnily enough) Gamera, but Toho stopped those plans from ever happening. Nowadays Toho is bit more looser than back in the 90's but i swear i remember that there were plans to have Godzilla play a part in the IDW: Infestation event, possibly in which he fights the Great Old Ones but that was also shot down by Toho.

What i am saying is what other IDW licensed series you would have liked to see have a crossover with the Godzilla franchise?, perhaps with the Transformers, Star Trek, TMNT, etc.

Discuss.

I for one would love to see Godzilla crossover with Power Rangers. The new Rangers comics have been pretty good so it'd be cool to finally see Godzilla throw down with the Megazord. Other than that I can't think of many, Alien may have been cool though.

That Godzilla/Cthulhu crossover would have been an instant purchase from me.

Same here. Some even want Netflix and Saban to make an animated series based on it especially with Studio Mir, and that would be amazing alone.

My list of a few crossovers?

-Power Rangers for the above reason.
-Ultraman
-Mega XLR
-Hellboy
-Cthulhu. I remember fanfic that covered this. It was amazing. Too needs to reconsider an IDW Old Ones crossover for sure.
-Justice League. Probably because I really want it as a basis for an AU movie where the Justice League fight Godzilla.
-Batman '66. Son of Godzilla was originally around this concept, with Batman using the weather machine, but I 'd love to see another version of this concept as a tribute to Adam West and to bring in the fans of the classic versions of both characters to the fold.
-Alien vs Predator
-Vampire Hunter D

A GODZILLA Vs. CTHULHU sounds like a natural. Even if it couldn't be included in the INFESTATION II event, I'm surprised IDW didn't even pitch a mini series separate from the event. Maybe it had something to do with the Godzilla throw down with the Great Old Ones in INFESTATION 2 being reprinted in trade paperback form afterwards, and the rights issues with the event that fouled the Big-G's chances of being included in the event. With the H.P. Lovecraft mythos being public domain, it shouldn't have been a problem at all. Heck, I'm surprised Toho hasn't done it. Anywho, for those interested in the previously mentioned fan fic featuring the King of the Monsters facing down the Great Old One, you can check it out here.> http://www.kaijuphile.com/fannest/fiction/godzillavscthulhu_1.shtml
Probably another property I'd like to have seen IDW pit against Godzilla would be the Transformers. Or else Godzilla dealing with those pesky Martians in MARS ATTACKS ! Back in the day when I started digging around the internet ,I actually found some fan art of the Mars Attacks card set featuring Godzilla and the Toho pantheon of monsters crossing beams with the malevolent Martians. Haven't seen it since. On another bunch of Martians, I always thought Godzilla encountering the Martians, and their Tripod war machines from War of the Worlds would've been another one that could've been done. Like the Cthulhu mythos, H.G. Wells' seminal tale of the Martian invasion is another public domain property. Enabling IDW to do it with out any legal entanglements of getting the rights.

I've got another idea, how about for a crossover with another IDW-licensed series, we could have the crew of the USS Enterprise have a run in with King Ghidorah or Gigan during one of their trips through the cosmos.

Godzilla being used as the big gun in the IDW crossovers would have been cool especially the Mars attacks.

I would have also liked a crossover with Power Rangers, Alien, Terminator and of course Gamera.
The one thing I want to see in life,TOHO buy Gamera.

I've always wanted Godzilla to crossover with Batman. I don't know why, it probably wouldn't be that good. I just want to see Godzilla fight the Batwing.

To be transparent I have a disdain for the Power Rangers as it's a very clear butchering of a show and the kind of guy the owner Saban is. For this reason, Id rather just have a crossover with an actual Japanese series and not the Power Rangers.

I don't know why, but I suppose for similar marketing reasons I wouldn't like Godzilla to crossover with transformers. And yeah I'm aware a lot of current stuff like Ultraman are pretty much made to sell toys, but for some reason I don't like the idea of Godzilla crossing over with American money machines.

I suppose in terms of other crossovers, well a lot of obvious ones like Ultraman are mentioned. But I'd double down on the idea of Batman, and hell have an Avengers crossover again, a lot of people forget that totally happened. Godzilla fighting a superhero is really easy to do, and no one is gonna complain except mega Godzilla fanboys if Godzilla loses or is temporarily stopped by Batman.

What about Godzilla and Star Trek tho. Sounds super outlandish, but you could easily make a story about TOS crew visiting a planet where King Ghidorah or some other monster is reeking havoc, and having a large thematic debate of whether interfering would be against the prime directive. You could also have a space fight between the enterprise and King Ghidorah, and then interactions between Xilliens and Star Ship Fleet. On top of that TOS was fully of a mixture of serious and very campy moments, and often used rubber monsters and aliens so a lot of Showa stuff would actually blend perfectly and tonally,

I'm pretty sure Godzilla is still technically canon in the main Marvel comic universe. They reference him from time to time, while getting around the fact that they don't have the license anymore.

Why has Toho always been so vehemently against Godzilla being involved with crossovers?

They haven't

The idea that Toho is restrictive of crossovers is ridiculous, and kind of a fan spread rumor. Toho just doesn't want weird skreeonking combos of things that don't make much sense.

Godzilla originally was a series based on crossovers, with King Kong, Mothra and Rodan. Following that there's been crossovers with the Avengers, Hamtaro, tons of different brands and mascots. Godzilla was also supposed to crossover with Batman and Frankenstein at points as well. And just last year we've had Godzilla cross over with Evangelion.

If you have to ask yourself why Toho wouldn't want Godzilla crossing over with TMNT, well it's fairly obvious to anyone that isn't just interested in seeing X property they like with Y thing. Sure, I'm the one that made the Star Trek comparison but I can justify it due to similar tone, and same impact on popular culture. I'm not sure if Vampire Hunter D is as culturally significant as Godzilla, The Avengers, King Kong or Star Trek.

I wonder if it's a simple matter of money. Toho doesn't want to share or split the money/profit with the other character's rights holder.

I'd be interested in knowing where those supposed cross over plans are mentioned. Sounds more like fan speculation and wishful thinking
