I stand by my orginal statement, if the MV continues past GvsK and starts doing better and better we may see Gamera show up and they should introduce in Godzilla vs Gamera first.
Godzilla and Kong are household names. Why would Legendary bother using a character that is basically unknown outside of Japan and kaiju fandom? Why pay for the rights to Gamera when they have Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah on top of their two flagship characters?
1. Legendary has hardcore kaiju fans working who likely know Gamera.
2. Gamera has had two Simpson's cameos alongside Godzilla and a panel at NYCC so not that unknown.
3. Iron Man and some of the most popular mcu charcters were also unknown to the GA at first and now look.
Charcters have to be built up.
