And I'm not saying it wouldn't be possible. This is a thread to talk about our fears, though, so of course we're going to focus on worst-case scenarios.

Yes, holding back from exploring the themes of either transformation or rebirth in a debut Mothra movie could, in theory, still lead to a satisfying narrative, if those themes were replaced by something equally strong that was brought to some satisfying conclusion over the course of the movie, though that would run the risk of not feeling remotely like a Mothra movie at all.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

Inactive kaiju. If I could pinpoint one beef I have with Shin and Anime Godzilla it's that they pretty much do one of two things. Walk forward and use a ranged attack. It kinda made a lot of the battles blur together if all it consists of is "Military shoot at Godzilla, Godzilla tanks it and shoots back, military go boom". Even the most beam-spamy of the Heisei "Beam Wars" had some close combat and the kaiju were reactive to things around them. I really hope, especially if we have monster battles, we don't just get what amounts to two siege towers shooting each other.

I just hope this doesn’t cancel out the Monsterverse. Say what you want about Legendary and Hollywood but they’re the ones that expose the franchise to the general public
Yooo 8-)

That won't happen.
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”.
