I am definitely eagerly anticipating the planned Cloverfield entry coming up. Cloverfield is probably my favorite American "kaiju" series. Moreso than Pacific Rim. I liked Paradox even though it was crazy. The original is my favorite of the bunch. Clover is a kaiju that imo gets overlooked too much and could use another entry and some exposure along with it.

Hopefully, the new Clover will be given another kaiju to fight.

Yeah, one with tiny arms and huge ass daddy long leg-like legs.

I just hope it's good and we get some decent merch for it. NECA Clover would be awesome.

I think it’s for the best that they steer clear of kaiju fights. No point in turning this franchise into another monster smackdown.

I hope they reconsider using found footage again. It wouldn't feel like a true sequel without it. (unless they go with the 10 Cloverfield lane tone)

If it's found-footage I am out, I couldn't make it through the first one mostly due to that and the unlikable cast didn't do it any favors.

I am looking more forward to ''The MEG 2: The Trench'' and would rather have a Rampage 2 then another Cloverfield.

That being said I am always game for another monster movie, but I think they waited to long for a proper follow up for general audiences to really give a damn anymore.

Plus JJ Abrams being involved in any compacity doesn't add too much optimism for the project.

I just found myself not actually caring about any of them from what I recall, it's been a while since I even attempted to view it again. I was a much bigger fan of 10 Cloverfield Lane to be honest. Still haven't seen the third installment as I heard it was awful.
