Google "Godzilla 2012 Brian Rogers", and a video interview where he confirmed this, should be the first thing to pop up. He says he will fight an "other monster, or monsters".
...That hardly implies Godzilla will fight SEVERAL monsters.
-As for the topic question, what do I want out of the film? As many others have already mentioned, I want the film to be a good
homage to the Godzilla series but to still deliver some sense of independent thought and creativity, specifically to keep it more "modern," but in a good way. Think Batman Begins.
-The first segment of the movie should be about Godzilla's path of destruction, breaking buildings, attacking army etc. I would prefer that he's already established a la Godzilla 2000 so we don't have to waste time with a quarter of the film dedicated to his entrance.
-I also want him to fight two monsters, the first being the token cannon fodder monster that still puts up a good fight just to show how strong Godzilla is, then to have the final monster be some sort of "ultimate" monster that only Godzilla can beat, illustrating the "defender of the universe" character while still being a destructive asshole and not some sort of gigantic superhero. Seeing as Godzilla's going to be a "dark" film, this cruel sense of irony is fitting.
-Also speaking of the film being dark, please have some humor.
-Give me a "WOW" moment. Something that amazes the audience to the point that everybody in the theater speaks up. To reference the Nolan Batman films again, think of the scene where Batman flips over the 18 wheeler with his bike, but on a more monstrous scale.
Then there's obvious stuff like having a good score with Godzilla's theme, good human characters when monsters aren't on screen, and please don't make it a braindead popcorn flick like the Transformers films. Now what do I expect
? I expect Edwards to pay proper homage to Godzilla but still make the same technical mistakes he made in Monsters
and I expect the writing to be rubbish because Goyer is not a great writer on his own. These issues, matched with subpar acting, will probably land Godzilla no higher than 60% on rotten tomatoes, and that's being generous.
