From taking the synopsis at face value (admittedly a poor choice, I admit), I really hope they don't puss out and give KG an Earthly origin.

I'm torn...if King Ghidorah is a space monster cosmic horror then I don't want him to die in Godzilla 2. A space monster getting killed that quickl, one that had a history in another continuity of wiping out civilizations, then it sort of lowers the danger level of future antagonists.

If King Ghidorah is an Earth monster that is just a level above Godzilla and co then I'm a little more okay if he buys it in that film.

If Ghidorahs not an alien I truly truly truly truly prey they have an alien enemy for Kong and Godzilla to team up against. As unlikely as the chance of that is. But let a man dream dammit.

I want Kong v Godzilla To Be like BvS but...y'know, better critically received. With Mothra filling the role of Wonder Woman and Ghidorah filling the role of Doomsday. Here's to hoping. :D

Calling It Now, GvKK, King Kong won't be an inch under 250 ft.

So, I've been noticing some tweets like this lately.

https://twitter.com/pasinpasin/status/9 ... 4140521472

It would seem Godzilla is being broadcast in 4K overseas and that the picture quality is vastly better than the Blu Ray release, hopefully all the lighting issues resolved, hopefully that means a 4K Blu Ray may come in 2019 with Godzilla 2.

I hope they keep his alien origin. He's not King Ghidorah without being the mysterious intergalactic destroyer of worlds.

Even though he’s been an earth born creature 2 out of 3 of his Godzilla film incarnations. I’m fairly confident Dougherty will keep have some sort of extraterrestrial origins to him, he loves aliens and related stuff.

Some ass jockey decided to not crop dust the crowd, dude let off some straight napalm and cleared a 20 ft radius and didn’t flinch, he just moved up closer. I prayed Sandra wouldn’t catch a whiff, talk about Endgame....just gross.

I'm fairly confident that Godzilla 2 will be a noticeable departure from G14 in overall feel and tone. Though I still doubt they'll go as far as KSI's tone.

I'm still hoping "... but those guys are crazy!.." wasn't just comedic touch. If they follow K:SI's lighter tone I think the alien route would be a lot of fun too.

I agree completely. It seemed WAY too intentional just to be a comedic touch. Absolutely felt like it was an intentional nod at Ghidorah.

The way I see it. It might be they don't believe it and then are proven to be wrong leaving those that said "They were crazy" baffled. I at best hope they imply King Ghidorah's extraterrestrial origin, doesn't have to fully explain it.

It seemed a little on the nose for me for it just to be a throwaway joke. I mean I immediately though Ghidorah when Goodman said that. Of course it could still be nothing but I'm betting it was a knowing nod myself.

Speaks about Godzilla's Resurgence and at Toho a Godzilla Council that meet's once a month to discuss how to handle the Godzilla brand.

Speaks about opening more Godzilla stores due to there popularity, and stating it's very popular on weekends and 15% are generally non-Japanese. Nice to hear about Godzilla's revival.

I remember back on the old boards, people believed the franchise was not ready for any kind of revival. This was almost 10 years ago. Shows what those people knew, doesn't it?

They mention opening Godzilla stores abroad, that'd be an awesome marketing tactic for GKOTM or GVK. Godzilla pop-up shops in NYC, San Fran, Chicago, etc.

There's a Godzilla Council? That's pretty cool, would love to be a fly on the wall in that room.

Well we've had Ghidorah with the following origins:
-Alien
-Mutant
-Earth Guardian

So I honestly believe that G2's Ghidorah needs to be an Earthly monster, but surrounded in mystery and the possibility of it's origins being elsewhere or alter by something fro such.
