Honestly, I'd just like to see his scene from 2014 at some point. Just release it on YouTube or something and he wouldn't have to appear in any of the other films again as far as I'm concerned. (That's not to say that I wouldn't love for him to have a proper cameo at some point if he's able and inclined.)


I just went looking for it, I remember finding it on YouTube once but now I can't find it.

In addition to Cumberbatch, we might as well see Martin Freeman as well since both are destined to be in everything together.

I've often wondered what the thought process was behind not including that scene. They made a slightly big deal about it when it was announced, posting a picture of Gareth and Akira on social media and everything. It gave the film and the buildup to it abit more of a special feeling. And then his scene is cut. Why? Just the fact that they could have had THE Godzilla actor in the movie is enough of a reason to leave the scene in. I mean, does it really matter if it technically wasn't needed or didn't add anything to the narrative? Would an extra 10 seconds in the film have made that much of a difference?

^Not to sound to negative, but part of me thinks that Takarada is not long for this world...

2 minutes.

Test audainances were like "the movie needs to get going". I'd like to add that the Male Muto had already hatched at this point. -_-

I'd like to see Gary Oldman play a great character who could pointlessly die.

Michael Cain could also play a great character who could... also pointlessly die.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt would do a great job... for 30 minutes.

Akira Takarada would be amazing... in a deleted scene.

Really? Wow, I didn't realize there was that much footage shot. Still, they could have cut just that scene down a bit. Atleast show the poor guy's face on screen. The way I look at it, if they really wanted Akira Takarada in their Godzilla movie, they would have done what they could to make it happen.

It most likely could have been done, but without seeing the scene it's hard to say. Honestly, I feel that the filmmakers could have delayed godzilla's reveal for two minutes and not have hurt the film with general audiences any more than the teasing and lack of Bryan Cranston already did.

Yeah I know. I actually liked ATJ as Ford, but JGL would've been great too, I'm sure.

Honestly I wouldn't expect any big A class Hollywood names. We'll probably just keep getting the same, top flight actors from popular and critically lauded TV series.

Added in 1 minute 21 seconds:
That said I'd still love to see Michael Emerson in some sort of shady role.

Shady, shifty, and creepy. He'd be great as a shady higher up in Monarch. He can play a good guy though, he was also Mr. Finch in Person of Interest. I believe he was a bad guy in this past season of Arrow too.

Its a shame this isn't the 80s. Then we'd get Arnold and Sly tearing it up with the monsters.
