Easy

Let Junji Ito make it's own Godzilla short story, or even full on manga.

Freude, schöner Götterfunken
Tochter aus Elysium
Wir betreten feuertrunken
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder
Was die Mode streng geteilt
Alle Menschen werden Brüder
Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

Legend, the dinosaurs weren't atomic powered. I'm saying a bit of a mixotrophic amphibious dinosaur that already is may be 10 or 15 meters tall. Then mutated further.

Let Hideo Kojima write a screenplay for a film...

Why not. I bet he'd relish the chance to write a Godzilla movie.

I honestly like the "Alien Godzilla " idea. it's a nice way to make him stand out from the rest, but they won't go through with it i'm sure.

I don't think Toho needs to make Godzilla "weirder". Shin was good for one movie IMO. I don't need to see that version again.

If you think about it, the 70's Showa versions of Godzilla were weird. His personality and intelligence is human-like. The scores for the movies were weird. You can actually make a weird Godzilla film without Godzilla himself being weird. Comes down to atmosphere, tone, which you can control visually and through score.

I grew up with all versions of Godzilla, so an Alternate Universe type Godzilla film is welcomed. The child and nerd in me would like to see a modern reboot of Mechagodzilla 74. Love that 74 design! If you really want Godzilla to look different, maybe use that spiky red chested unused concept design from Godzilla Final Wars?

If I were to go that direction, Godzilla would have to have more than his standard Atomic Breath. I would at Spiral Blasts and Nuclear Pulse.

It'd be interesting to see an amphibian textured Goji, crocodilian head, with a more salamander-ish tail, but keeping all the known aspects in tact, maybe emphasis on the keloid scars in certain spots
Didn't Shin Godzilla get stopped by Crest Toothpaste and Five Gum?

Well obviously Godzilla needs to go on Maury to see if he's really Minilla's dad because I personally have some doubts.

Seriously though, Shin Godzilla and the Anime Trilogy really went outside the box with Godzilla (for better or worse) and my pea brain can't imagine it getting any more out there than that while also staying true to the character.

I guess I'll just have to wait and see what they do.

someone the next page over said one of the earlier concepts for Godzilla 54 was in fact a more amphibian version, so it's been brought up before and it's not to out of the question.

Yeah if we're talking about the same version Nauts are making a figure based on that concept art, It's a great design, but I meant along the lines of a fishlike texture, similar to a Giant Salamander, no scales, more deep sea skin mixed with deep tissue keloid scars.

Your first idea needs to be a priority for Toho :P
Yeah, I loved all the new takes but I can't imagine any new "scientific" takes without going too far. I suppose going spiritual or mystical would be a nice change of pace.
If the World of Godzilla and MV fails, then I guess I could go back to formula and watch the Holy Showa Era and Shin for the 176th time.
The world is very sexy, it's part of my collapse.
