My worst fear has already come to pass: that they'll count their chickens before they hatch and announce a "cinematic universe" (I'm really starting to hate that term), when the proven best way to do one is to start with a movie that has no pretense whatsoever of belonging to a larger timeline, letting it be its own thing, and working your way up from there. The way it's going, it might very well end up being like the obnoxiously self-assured "Dark Universe", which we all saw crash and burn for making the same mistake. But is that stopping Universal from trying yet again? Nah.
On that note, if Toho repeatedly tries and fails to produce a movie that clicks enough with audiences to warrant a universe, and it leaves us with a string of mediocre movies with no narrative ties to one another, it could end up superficially resembling the Millennium era (I don't mean that as a knock against that era), and I don't want a tragically comical outcome like that.
