I really wish people would get away from this "realism" thing. No matter how hard you try to validate him, Godzilla isn't realistic and trying too hard to make him so merely kills the fun of the movies. I'd rather not go through another chore of a movie that tries to take itself so seriously that it ends up just being laughable *cough*Heisei Era*cough*.
While I don't object to the very idea of another anti-hero Godzilla, he'll have to be pulled off in a far less conventional way than Return of Godzilla
onwards. I'd rather not see the same Godzilla I saw in 1984-2004 (with a few exceptions here and there).
A heroic Godzilla worked in the 70's, but I don't see it going far today.
No one says he has to be a Godzilla who preforms handshakes, boxes, flies, and slides on his tail. There are other ways to introduce a heroic Godzilla than a complete and utter '70s throwback.
There's a reason Godzilla's been the same for so long: it works.
That's debatable. I'd say bringing in the standard Godzilla characteristics hurt the Millennium films in terms of quality more than they helped it.
