I'm not entirely sure myself, but, off the top of my head, here are a bunch of ideas for directions they might possibly (emphasis on might possibly, none of these are actually likely at all) go in:
• Godzilla as a mammal.
• Godzilla being female instead of male.
• Godzilla as a dragon.
• Godzilla as an alien.
• Godzilla as a demon.
• Godzilla as a genetically-engineered creature.
• Godzilla as an intangible, ghostly nature spirit instead of a physical being.
• Godzilla being a shapeshifter.
• Godzilla as a magical being/explicitly having magic-based powers.
• Godzilla having feathers/being bird-like.
• Godzilla not being able to swim.
• Godzilla not having atomic breath/dorsal plates/a tail.
• Godzilla having more than four limbs and/or multiple heads.
• Godzilla having wings/being able to fly in a way other than how he did in Godzilla vs. Hedorah.
• Godzilla being able to speak fluently and have conversations with human characters.
• Godzilla making and/or using tools and/or technology.
• Godzilla being much shorter in height than 50 meters.
• Godzilla having a color palette nobody was expecting for him, such as pink skin and a yellow atomic breath.
• Godzilla having a completely new roar that sounds nothing like any of his previous roars.
Again, I seriously doubt that Toho would do any of the above, these are just examples.
What do you guys think they might do, assuming they decide to make another "weird" Godzilla?
You listed some nice ideas there but I think there is only one true way TOHO will go. And this will be: BACK TO THE ROOTS!
A normal sized kaiju and normal sized enemys combined with emotional interaction with humans (human lead characters like Miki in the Heisei series)
The older fans demand it! They need some great times like Showa or Heisei to watch before they die!
