I'd like to see consistent continuity (correct monster sizes, the overall story line) which the Showa series didn't have, but the Heisei series did.

I hope they have a great marketing and brainstorming team, since supposedly it's not a cinematic universe like most people thought. Instead it's just a super plan to spead Godzilla characters all over, meaning eventually everyone will be a Godzilla normie, harharharhar ha.

For instance, KOTM is going to boost King Ghidorah's popularity, so focus on growing his presence. Not necessarily with a solo film, just more things related to him.

Well, we got two adult Mothras in Rebirth of Mothra; but I assume you mean two at the same time.

Yep, two at the same time. I think it was a waste we never got to see those two Mothra caterpillars from the Showa era grow up to adult Mothras. I think it could be fascinating taking the premise of two different Mothras from the Showa era and bringing it to the logical conclusion today.

Agreed on the two Mothras idea. They've got to start making new efforts to bring Mothra out of her traditional box, and this would be a great way to do something new with her. Also, if the two Mothras have difficult designs, Toho could sell twice as many toys. You reading that, Toho? Double the moth, double the MONEY. That makes this a good idea.

Would you imagine them as two totally separate characters that would act independently and maybe potentially disagree about courses of action, or would you imagine them as more of a shared consciousness?

1. TO add to the two Mothra's if they go they route please make one of them a new Leo.

2. My biggest hope after the latest comments is that this is actually a series of movies.

I doubt that they would ever disagree, but definitely as two separate individuals acting independently, kind of mimicking the twin fairies in a way. They would have separate designs so they would be easy to tell apart (maybe reuse the Leo design for one of them), and while I know Toho probably won't be able to resist killing one of them off and go back to just one Mothra, I'd hope the two Mothras would last at least a few movies.

I'd also bring back Battra as an occasional foe and ally for the two of them, maybe bring back the evil fairy sister from the RoM trilogy to act as Battra's fairy. Really build up the whole Mothra mythology here with the various past versions. So Showa's two Mothra caterpillars, only now bring them to adulthood, and Heisei's Battra and much of Rebirth's background and third fairy.

I was thinking one of the twin Mothras enemies could be Megaguirus. Actually my initial idea when I was toying with making it as a bit of fan fiction would have Megaguirus and her swarm show up and fight them while they're still caterpillars, then have them cocoon later, and while they're metamorphosis-ing have Battra protect them and ultimately sacrifice him-or-herself to give them enough time to emerge safely and defeat Megaguirus.

Later on I'd have them battle Gigan like in Final Wars again. And at some point team up with King Caesar since they're both guardian deities, possibly to fight against some version of King Ghidorah. I was pretty flush with story ideas at the time.

Basically, it's a guy that "leaked" Shin and people believed he was Hideaki Anno himself. Might be missing a few details.

Tokumei said something, I don't know what, and changed his mind and edited out his statement. Considering his track record with insider Shin Godzilla details before the movie, it could have been significant, but I don't know obviously since I don't know what he posted. Gotschiller seems to be trying to call him out or goad him, maybe I don't know. And for some reason UltramanGoji is taking about divine fecal matter. Maybe he saw what was or wasn't originally posted. I'm trying to figure out if this is the opening to a mystery or a fight.

Bouncing off the "two adult Mothras" idea, why not have one of the two adults, a more aggressive and proactive Mothra, become Battra?

Because I always felt that the two were similar yet distinct species, plus it somewhat clashes with the Showa inspiration for the idea. I think it'd be much more interesting to have Battra be a sort of gray area sometimes foe sometimes friend of the Mothra twins. Plus this way you could have Mothra, Mothra Leo, and Battra all at the same time, which would be a pretty epic kaiju moment seeing all three team up. At least that's how I kinda want to picture it. It'd also provide a neat synergy or symmetry with the three fairy sisters ala Rebirth of Mothra, you could have each be responsible for one moth-like kaiju.

Of course there's the possibility I've spent way too much time thinking about it and feel a bit committed to the idea. :lol:
