Actors you will like to see in the Monsterverse

Postby LegendZilla » Mon Jan 29, 2018 3:41 am

Hey there, LegendZilla here. Does anyone have any theories or suggestions as to what actors you would like to see be added in the The ever-diversifying cast of the Monsterverse? If so, what roles do you picture them playing?

My suggestions are :

Jill Marie Jones as a newly appointed Monarch official
Laurence Fishbourne in a military personnel
Alan Tudyk as a Scientist
And Brad Pitt as the male lead in a potential War of the Gargantuas remake

I've said this before, but I want to see Ernie Hudson as an aged Houston Brooks.

Great thread idea, LegendZilla!

My takes:

Gary Oldman: Underrated character actor who has sci-fi roots (Fifth Element). Does great work when working with forces stronger than his character (Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy). I could see him as a concerned scientist-type, similar perhaps to Watanabe.
Paul Giamatti: I could see him as nutjob government worker or conspiracy theorist, in the same vein as Randa.
Amanda Plummer: Because if you remember nothing else about Pulp Fiction, you remember Amanda Plummer. Also has sci-fi roots from The Hunger Games, and I could see her as a jaded survivor of a city-destroying monster battle. You know what, put Tim Roth in these movies too. Sure.
Tilda Swinton: Because she's an awesome actor who's equally awesome in sci-fi (Okja, Snowpiercer). She has a flare for the dramatics, which I think would work best if the MonsterVerse goes more Showa-ish.

Gary Oldman, underrated? He's one of the most well known and respected actors around. Hell, he's been in two of the biggest franchises around, Batman and Harry Potter.
I can't believe that Godzilla was the only surviving member of its species, but if we continue conducting nuclear tests, it's possible that another Godzilla might appear somewhere in the world again.

Thanks for both your ideas and compliment! ;)

I've read up on the 80's what-if Godzilla film where the lead was going to be an eye patch wearing agent. His nemesis was going to be a Soviet military man with a blade-arm. The movie sounded pretty fun. If we ever did a more fun, somewhat goofy Godzilla adventure movie then I think the Rock would fit right at home.

Kristian Nairn and Andy Serkis as Sanda and Gaira respectively through motion capture.
Tao Okamoto or Rila Fukushima opposite of Brad Pitt as Sanda’s Caretaker.
Kate Beckinsale in a role as someone’s wife or mother.

Amy Acker, because I think she'd make a great scientist.

Toby Stephens, I can see him as a military officer charged with reigning in kaiju.

Godzilla vs Biollante (1989) is easily the best Godzilla movie, ever.

One thing the MonsterVerse has done great so far is the castings. Even if the roles have sometimes not really justified those castings.

I'd really, really love to see Lennie James (Morgan from The Walking Dead) as like a scientist or something.

I know we’re getting Thomas Middleditch in KotM but I’d like to see more comedic actors in the monsterverse. Nick Offerman, John Krasinski, and Allison Brie would be a few I’d like to see.

If the Monsterverse ever introduces aliens (Xiliens , Killaks etc) i could see Tilda Swinton playing their leader

I absolutely love Alison Brie! I think a big budget film would do wonders for her career, why not a Godzilla film?

I remember reading somewhere Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Henry Cavill were originally considered for the lead role in the 2014 film. Could possibly see them being in future sequels/spinoffs.

I love JGL so I’d be all for him but I’m not a huge fan of Cavill. But yeah Allison Brie needs a big break she’s so talented and sooo beautiful.

I'd honestly like to see John C. Reiley return in Godzilla vs. Kong.

I'd like to see Akira Takarada appear (and not have his scene deleted) as a navy officer, or a MUTO scientist, I'd just really like him to be connected to Godzilla somehow.
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”.

I'd love to see Sigourney Weaver as a high ranking, no nonsense Monarch scientist.

I want to see Ryan Gosling. Don't care about the role, just give me the Goose.

JGL had to bow out do to scheduling conflicts with the promotion of his directorial debut Don Jon. If not he would most likely have been Ford.
