Hollywood, seeing the reception Zilla received, would be cautious about repeating that experience.

^ Just remember, liking the idea doesn't mean anyone thinks it's likely to happen.

And actually, aren't there quite a few of us around here that have consistently maintained some appreciation for Zilla while not liking his film?

Zilla is dead an needs to stay that way.... There is no reason to even remotely bring the character back... It isn't invincible, it has no real special powers, an it eat's fish...

Even if Toho brought the monster back an fought any other monster in the Godzilla franchise besides big-G himself he's still get his ass handed to him within a few minutes. Wouldn't even be worth making a movie over....

He'd fit quite well in a Jurassic park sequel since there talking about further genetic tampering.... But Zilla just doesn't fit in the Godzilla Universe.

A brilliant example here here:

I like the idea of having sex. However, due to my lack of having a female friend that is available or attractive, I don't see it happening. And if I wondered to have sex with a guy, I would have gone to theater school. It would have been easier.

... Oh good lord, I'm about to defend Zilla... this is gonna be one of those skreeonking weeks, isn'it?

What is Zilla? An innocent animal, in this case a Green Iguana, turned into a misshapen monster by man's reckless wishing for its very own self-destruction, also known as a nuke in some districts. It had no chance of leading the life its forerunners did. It became too tall, too strong, and too heavy, ironically no longer having a place in the very world that made it.

Like hell it don't belong!

There is no quota to be met when being a giant monster in the Godzilla Universe. You don't have to be invincible (Yog trio), you don't need special powers (Rodan, Manda, Kamacuras, Anguirus, Kumonga, Ookondoru, Oodako, Ebirah), and you sure as hell don't need to subscribe to a certain skreeonking diet.

Ugh, I'm going to bed. Defending Zilla is just bound to give me some more freaky as hell nightmares.
I'm a reasonable guy, I've just experienced some unreasonable things.

Before I decided I was going to work on my master's in literature, I got my first degree in theatre. I might've thought you were engaging in unfair profiling before that...but it was honestly astounding how many of my classmates were self-proclaimed homosexuals. I literally took a class with seven other students, and the only other person who wasn't gay was the woman. That may or may not be the norm, but damn if it wasn't an interesting experience.

I think you're right on the money, NSZ. Part of the series' charm is the sheer quantity and variety of creatures it can accommodate. As long as Toho has a copyright icon for it, any kaiju is welcome in my book.

Wonderfully put, that made me like Zilla even more than I did and strengthened my belief that she should get another shot at a movie.

I could see him in a role similar to Zedus, the fabled 'first foe' of a young/new monster.

I think it would be hilarious if Zilla got a part two.

No it wouldn't.

A role in a game maybe, a film NO.

I think people are letting their extreme hate of Zilla get in the way of how interesting another appearance of him in a Godzilla film would be.

^It would only be "interesting" if you're a fan of the character, which a lot of people here aren't. I like GINO as a monster, and wouldn't mind seeing him in a film again, but I'm also pretty certain it's never gonna happen. There are far better monsters that deserve screentime anyhow.

I don't think that applies here at all, actually.

I actually like the character, but Zilla will never, ever be in another starring role. Period.

There are so many more visually interesting and classic monsters who could easily fit the roll he would fill up. "We decided against the reptilian flying squirrel, the toad/bulldog, the beloved armadillo lizard to bring back a the bland looking iguanasaurus that was supposed to replace its co-star".

What? why? There's literally no positive creative decision behind bringing back GINO that you couldn't do better with either a respectful revamp or just general return from another and better kaiju.
