Most likely pick someone that is iconic or a monster is recognizable like King Ghidorah or Hedorah. Having a new monster will be asking who they are, you don't see people making new original villains for Spider-Man in a film.
Of course that's more likely to happen. It's easier that way. But that doesn't mean it couldn't be every bit as engaging with a new monster. I would hardly call King Ghidorah or Hedorah "iconic" or "recognizable" to the movie-going public. The majority of people out there haven't the faintest clue who any of those monsters are. The public would ask, "Who's that?", whether they use a classic or original monster because they are only vaguely familiar with the franchise at best.
You're acting like I expect an original monster, HS. When I only said I would much prefer a new monster. I know Goyer's track record and his tendencies to gather elements from an adapted character's mythos as opposed to introducing entirely new things.
As for relating this to a Spider-man adaptation: Spidey's enemies are much more widely recognized in the United States (the classic villains anyway). So of course a film company wouldn't create an entirely new villain (unless we're counting "New Goblin" or whatever the hell Harry was in Spider-Man 3). So it's certainly possible people would bitch about original villains. Hell, people would bitch if any post-Carnage villain was used. With Godzilla, the general movie-going crowd has little-to-no familiarity with the mythos. So it would hardly matter. That's what would have happened if the 94(?) had been made. We would have gotten the Gryphon. Nobody would have cared.
