King Ghidorah -- I'm probably going to receive a lot of hell for saying this, but I don't care. I understand that King Ghidorah is Godzilla's nemesis and all, but he is the most overused antagonist in not just the Godzilla series, but the Toho universe itself. I do not have anything against him. But he needs to be shelved for once. Give someone else the spotlight. If LP makes more than one movie, put him in a sequel.
Mechagodzilla -- Kiryu has had two films to his name in the final three Godzilla movies. I'm getting a bit tired of the same JSDF clones. The only way I'd accept having Mechagodzilla is if he went back to its roots as a weapon for some extraterrestrial invaders. Does this mean I'm against Mechagodzilla ever appearing again? No. Like King Ghidorah, I think he needs a rest.
Mothra -- I highly doubt she even has a chance of getting a spot in the movie, but I'm going to make my case anyway. She's been in the last two Godzilla movies; many of her movies rehash the same moments from her debut film (an egg hatches, the larva comes out, transforms, etc.); and I don't want singing fairies in the reboot. Like King Ghidorah, add her in a sequel (if there will even be one!).
I see what you mean, but lets take a look back to 2001 for a moment...
GMK was originally gonna have Baragon, Varan and Anguirus. That was changed because they realized that Mothra and Ghidorah were more popular and it was more fitting. This change was popular enough to make a killing at the box office and spawn a few more movies. Had Ghidorah or Mothra not been in the film, the Millenium series would have ended there and then.
I think for this upcoming movie to work, Ghidorah may have to be in it. If the movie makes no money, then we wont have another movie for God knows how long (unless Toho does what they did after Zilla was released).
