All I wanna see is LegendaryGoji fighting TristarGoji... Just because we all know how that'd go. Beyond that... Meh, I don't like the 1998 film, so I don't watch it. I don't mind changes the character's look, but there are specific traits that Godzilla should have that Emmerich completely missed. We've all been through it a billion times, so no need to get into it. We've now had two good american-produced Godzilla films, with an accurate Godzilla. So it's all good.

Eh, it's expected at this point. People make a bigger deal than necessary. It's not even worth the time to go into it.

WW isn't getting a trailer until December 8th, but yes WW will have a longer marketing campaign than GvK

Doesn't automatically mean anything positive or negative

Wonder Woman's last film made 821$ million World Wide, Last Godzilla film made 385$ million.

You can see why Warner will spend a little more money on a character pretty much guaranteed to make money then one that might potentially break even?

We will probably get more news regarding the films trailer by early November.

Well it was either them or Legendary or both who were dumb to think the hype train from the trailers would last 10 months and move it up to compete with a bunch of movies including THE Marvel movie instead of just one Marvel movie.

Yeah I think their questionable way of marketing & releasing the movie had more to do with making less than they expected than the characters themselves.

Star Wars trailer just dropped last night. So hopefully that means Godzilla vs. Kong comes soon, to make sure that it didn't get pushed aside by Star Wars.

The new Bond trailer drops next, then it's GvK

*Talking about huge, anticipated trailers*

If this tweet is anything to go by, the trailer is definitely on its way (this guy works on trailers & I believe was the one to say it's coming soon along with SW & Bond)

Yup he was the one. Apparently Bond is holding off its trailer until much closer to Star Wars.

I’m predicting on any of these days in no particular order:

-Halloween
-the week of when Doctor Sleep comes out
-Thanksgiving
Yooo 8-)

We could definitely get one with Dark Fate. It's the last huge tentpole before Star Wars drops. I doubt they'd wait till then (you never know though). There was also reportedly footage shown at an event a few weeks back though the description does sound a bit suspect so it could have been a hoax.

Pfft, Dark Fate isn't a huge tentpole.

*checks budget*

Wait, WHAT?!
In my opinion, of course.

It’s starting to look like it’s gonna be the case for the trailer but I would’ve much rather have dropped the trailer before the worldwide phenomenon that is the Joker than a guaranteed flop in Dark Fate. Then again I guess nowadays everyone is watches movie trailers on YouTube.
