It's kind of... lazy. I'd like if they could work it into the actual story. This is his big reboot after all. Yeah, GINO came out 10 years, but f*ck that. This is supposed to the real Godzilla.
I agree completely.
I don't like the idea of taking what could be a huge plot and shoving it into the credits. His origin, original or revamped, should be in the new movie.
The only way that can even be done is if this is a period movie. And I f'n hope it's not.
If not the credits, a short 10-minute origin before opening creds, sorta' like Jason's in the Friday the 13th movie.
I guess I should clarify a bit. By origin, I'm talking about more than the bomb blowing up. I'm talking about the reveal of the monster, learning about him, finding out his strengths and weaknesses, dealing with him attacking a city, is he hero or villain? etc. The origin story of Batman is more than his parents getting shot. Same with the big G. The only monster movies we've -really- had in America in several years... well it's pretty much Cloverfield. There's a lot you can do with a simple monster-on-the-loose plot if you dig into the simple things. The hiring of this director, to me, points to them doing this.
I also said 'original or re-vamped'. If his origins are nuclear, awesome. I want to see it portrayed somehow on film. If his origins are different, then it -better- be portrayed on film somehow. Remember the original script for GINO had Godzilla as an alien planted monster designed as a protector for Earth? If they go a strange route like that, I want to have the explanation included.
