Whereas The Next gave Ultraman a Guyver-esque organic armor-like skin texture, anyone have ideas for what other routes they could take (besides the whole Ironman-type power suit from the Netflix anime)? I am guessing they will go the whole being of light approach and give him a more-photon-like skin texture.

I'm betting either making him completely out of energy or they make him out of some sort of liquid "liquid light" that can change basic shape like the T-1000. Both ideas are absolute trash, IMO.

Can we expect something grotesque? Or was that only done to Godzilla because of the whole *Nuked Lizard* thing.

He did Shin Goji and the AoT film right? Seems like grotesque is his cup of tea.. I dig it.

I think they will try to avoid the whole grotesque route since he is a superhero.

The AoT films were bad, but that’s mainly because the original manga/anime were just difficult to adapt into big screen films. The actual fight at the end, between the two big titans is really cool and well done.

Ultraman will probably be completely normal. Maybe his personality, or whoever controls him will be darker and cynical, but I have no doubt we aren’t going to get some freakazoid. The monsters on the other hand...

I bet it was difficult. Whenever you switch an old period piece with a post apocalyptic setting, things get difficult. That was a change that didn't even need to happen.

I know it's not happening but it would definitely raise my intreasting if this was in the Shin Godzilla verse. Even if not we'll see them fight eventually as I doubt they'll pass on the Shin Ultraman x Shin Godzilla x Eva marketing.

I was half expecting a response like that to be honest.

*edit*

How about this?

I say all we need is to swap a traditional Ultraman face on it and bingo.

Or maybe somewhere in between a light-being and solid being.

I'd just prefer something more akin to the traditional look, if this is going to be an adaptation of the original series. Not Dr. Manhattan.

Perhaps he could look like a regal knight in shining armor. his suit would reflect the sun's rays so well that he just looks like the most godliest being the world has ever seen. then the monsters could be the "scary dragons" that the knight would have to challenge in a fight,naturally looking horrifying to the eyes . which makes it all the more satisfying when Ultraman slices them in half.

I would very much prefer if they avoided the whole "armored" look that is all too-common when trying to redesign the character.

He could literally just look the original Ultraman. We don’t know yet.
