That was the third Tristar backed Godzilla project since what, the late eighties? Toho already dragged their Heisei films out longer then intended and Tristar already put millions of dollars into preproduction of an American Godzilla film. Toho wanted an American Godzilla project but they were increasingly in a position not to haggle; it was a take it or leave it situation.
and some of the moves that were used in the atari games?
What about them? They're there because Toho approved them.
Toho no longer produces Godzilla on their own so I doubt they will be fussy
Thats exactly a reason TO be fussy. They aren't establishing "their" Godzilla cinematically anymore and since Godzilla is their character and property, they have every right to dictate how that property is handled. Consisdering the hoops that IDW and Atari (and Tristar in the past) have jumped through AND the previous American Godzilla project, they're going to be as anal as ever.
And should I ad that this is suppose to be a re introduction to the charactor so there will be some forceful changes which toho may be willing to agree upon for an overall improvement.
And Toho will want this reintroduction to be as proper and as faithful as possible.
