Yeah, I wanna see a Godzilla who steadily cares less about the wellbeing of humans. I mean, he already kind of doesn't. He said "skreeonk it" and smashed through that bridge in 2014. But I want some Gamera 3 type poop. Atomic breathing through buildings to his his opponent or something.

Yeah, I like him to be a hero, but not the type that gives a poop about collateral damage. If a few bugs get squished in a fight, so be it, but don't make him a jerk that crushes anthills either. In this vein, I would have liked it if he was the one to kill Sandra Brody in G14 and was shown explicitly killing Andrew by ramming the Femuto through the building he was in or accidentally stepping on him or something.

Some retaliation would also be nice. The humans might not threaten him in any way, but he's not gonna let them poke at him without swatting them away like annoying flies. Maybe something like casually swinging his tail behind him without looking back, knocking away tanks and battleships and the likes.

Welp GvK is apparently postponed till next November. For those who don't touch the spoilers thread.

Added in 5 minutes 24 seconds:
Hopefully they'll lay off any promotion for awhile. We don't need a repeat of KotM.

Overpromote? They literally marketed no different than any other Blockbuster movie these days. If anything, they didn’t promote enough.
anyway, yeah, macaroni.

Well poop, this one's gonna be a trashfire too. Bye bye Monsterverse. I'm just gonna leave the forums now. I'll be back if anything good happens.

You've been positive since you created an account here, and now you've spun a full 360 to the point of saying something like this... What?

You also never called KOTM and the entirety of the Monsterverse a "trashfire" until now, so once again... what?

This post made me laugh because I realized the last few weeks have been wars over bickering if it was delayed or not and half the site didn't see what was going on lol.

Just find it odd they waited so close to release before making the announcement.

Unfortunate, but I saw this coming from a mile away. I knew after KOTM that they'd want to make some changes

I’m sure they’ve been working on their strategy and didn’t want to commit to anything until they had a plan locked in, which would be now.

Oh well at least we don't have to be under suspense wondering when promotion will begin. That also means I don't have to waste my remaining vacation time to make the Thursday showing.

He already does that. When Mothra webbed Ghidorah to a skyscraper, Godzilla just took Ghidorah and the skyscraper down with zero F's given. He's not worried about humans much at all.

I just wouldn't mind seeing more of it. One of my most memorable moments in the Heisei Gamera trilogy was when he just destroyed Sapporo and unintentionally killed all those people along with the Gyoas. It'd be nice to see some of the weight that comes with Godzilla strolling through a city.

And one second later he protects a child. A lot of people bring this up but Gamera was not really as different in G3 as people think.

I think that's the point though. He's not meaner or angrier, which I thought was the point of the story of Ayana. He didn't intend to kill her parents, but he did. Now we're finally just getting to see what happens to people who are there. That's one thing I absolutely loved about Godzilla's arrival in 2014. Dude doesn't mean to kill all those people, but because he's so big, it happens.

Gamera is shown to care a little less about collateral damage in part 3 I’d argue but as you’ve all stated...Ayana’s story implies he’s always been a monster where the ends justify the means.

I think the scarier visage is meant to make us question if he truly is good like the characters do in the film.

By the film’s end we have our answer.

I am thinking now if Gamera really does have as much of an arc as I thought across the three films....

Hmmmmm. Interesting debate

God that Heisei series is so good. I think it’s time to revisit those films.
