I'm 50/50 percent sure this'll be what happens.
I suppose the Baragon-based kaiju will be related in a plot significant way. Clones? A single monster that's consistently upgraded by... bad guy aliens? Mad scientist?
I have a theory on this ever since February and I find it to be pretty likely. Basically, Neronga gets killed by either having his head blown to bits or sliced off. Then, aliens (Baltan) attach mechanical components to his corpse and turn it into Gabora. So basically, a single monster that's consistently upgraded by bad guy aliens.

That's money! I was looking at the Gabora movie monster vinyl, and I did notice there's kind of a little tail nub under the "full" tail, the one that continues from the drill pattern on its back. Totally could be augmentation. Would also explain the greyer color scheme, and maybe the head is a modified skull?

I still like Bemular.
I unapologetically, wholeheartedly, and without a doubt hate Godzilla vs Kong.

What if Anno finally officially realizes his fan film kaiju?

While Anno is a big fan of things he doesn't come across as the type of forcefully insert his own concept or fan design from thirty plus years ago into a narrative unless he has very justified reasons for doing so.

I do wonder though, will the monsters get a new origin or will their origin still be similar to their original counterparts.

Isn't that what Shin Godzilla is though. Not forcefully inserted by Anno put his own Spin on Godzilla.

Added in 59 seconds:
I'm wondering if the Type A face will be used in this for a angry or berserk Ultraman since Anno mentioned how it used to scare him.
You can put it on my Tombstone Mothra vs Godzilla> Gojira
my personal take

Shadow Area 1-0

That would be cool as hell.
I was a little disappointed when the trailer dropped and it was the c-type face, the a-type on the sleeker, more alien-porportioned body was very striking.
As a sidebar, based on the more direct Tohl Narita influence on Ultraman himself, I'm half expecting Dada to show up with this design:

which could be very at home in the style of animation we saw in the trailer.

It would be really cool if that happened but considering the fact that none of the kaiju are based on Narita's art, I doubt it.

Now would be a good time to show this movie to a test audience. If they don't like it, they could do re-shoots.

Japan's just declared another state of emergency re: COVID. Now's not a good time to do anything in Japan.

So, what are your opinions on this film's designs? Personally, I find them all perfect but Neronga is the best.

Unless it's the Olympics :P

There's rampant hypocrisy in how and what is acceptable to do, largely involving money. While the Olympics are definitely suspect, I've noticed a lot of very blatant scapegoating involving blaming "foreign athletes", despite a lot of business carrying on as usual (baseball and soccer games). The states of emergencies are mostly a joke, because unlike let's say New York, the governments actually can't really do much to enforce some of their own regulations. Sure nightclubs are closed, and sure scapegoats are made out of businesses that don't follow, but for the most part it's business as usual sans anti-virus monitoring. Most of the regulations are voluntary, and many places have played along because they don't want to look bad (which is great imo). The real reason why it's never gotten bad as America or other parts of the world is that people here have been comparatively good at mask wearing, and many places have temperature checks and whatnot. On top of that, states of emergency are local, not nationwide. The area I live in, an hour train ride to Tokyo, hasn't been under a state of emergency last year.

You can read more here. Notice all the "asked/requested" etc:
https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news ... ries/1711/

Additionally, in contrast to American cinemas, Japan has always had people purchase the seats for tickets, not "buy a ticket and hope you get a good seat". You can choose what seats you want beforehand, and they (the movie theater) can cancel what seats are available and whatnot. Ie: socially distanced movie theaters are easily doable. And based on my own experiences, movie-going audiences in Japan are completely silent. Last year, the Demon Slayer anime film did gangbusters, even though it was released in the corona pandemic era.

That being said, I agree with your sentiment. Better not to do anything or plan to do anything. I'd prefer if Shin Ultraman came out at a time when things are safer (80% of the elderly people are vaccinated, and everyone is starting to get vaccinated en-masse) and when everyone can enjoy the movie (if it's good!). We'll just have to see.

Friendly reminder that this is based on my own anecdotal experiences, and I'm not an expert, just reporting on the day-to-day things I've seen of the pandemic in Japan.

The idea of "showing it to test audiences to see what they like" is ridiculous though.

Based on the toys, I love them. I know this is because they're just recreations of older Showa Monsters. They look like real "Kaiju", and give off that monstrous and creative portrayal. We'll have to wait and see how they act and work in film however.

I think Gabora is my favorite! The drill pattern up the back leading to the neck drill is tight! Not to mention a great spin on Baragon's back pattern.
