It's kind of... lazy. I'd like if they could work it into the actual story. This is his big reboot after all. Yeah, GINO came out 10 years, but f*ck that. This is supposed to the real
I agree completely.
I don't like the idea of taking what could be a huge plot and shoving it into the credits. His origin, original or revamped, should be in the new movie.
The only way that can even be done is if this is a period movie. And I f'n hope it's not.
If not the credits, a short 10-minute origin before opening creds, sorta' like Jason's in the Friday the 13th movie.
It's a technique which I associate with bad films. The origin should follow the emergence of Godzilla. If we're going to keep it to a minimum, make the origin become clear during a crisis so that there's no time to talk about it or worry about it once it's explained, but don't have it explained at the onset of the film. That's like going all the way on the first date. Where's the mystery?
Mystery? Since when is Godzilla mysterious? EVERYONE knows of Godzilla's origin. EVERYONE knows he's a giant nuclear lizard that shoots beams. There's no reason to go indepth. It's been done a thousand times with fans, movies, comics, stories, etc.
Just make the movie a damn epic action movie like it should be.
