Godzilla will be CGI and a guy in a rubber suitDuh. Just like the Hulk and Lizard. A guy in a rubber suit as base and using CGI to make a gigantic lizard. There's your Pandering to the Fanbase right there.
If the film is successful, the films will bring back classic charactersMothra, King Gidorah, etc. Especially leading up to a remake of King Kong vs. Godzilla. The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.
If the movie does well enough to merit a sequel...... the sequel will be a Vs. movie (much like how the sequel to Man of Steel will be a Batman Vs. Superman movie) pitting Godzilla up against another famous monster (or Batman, because that idea, which was actually considered before at one point, sounds Crazy Enough to Work as a movie).
To help promote this film, they'll hire a contemporary rock band to do a cover of Blue Öyster Cult's famous song.Except the cover version will be less tongue-in-cheek and more menacing in order to better match the movie's Darker and Edgier tone.
The whole Darker and Edgier atmosphere established by the marketing is just a ruse to draw in viewers; the film itself will actually be full of Showa-era goofiness.Expect to see a tail-sliding Godzilla, two singing fairies, aliens in cheap gorilla masks, a talking Minilla who befriends children, and a human-sized robot that can inexplicably grow to kaiju proportions.
The movie will have an anti-war themeThe original 1954 Godzilla was essentially a metaphor for the WWII Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. It's likely that this movie, in going back to the roots of the original, will employ similar messages, condemning recent events such as 9/11 and the War in Afghanistan.
The film with end with Godzilla still aliveUnlike the original 50's film, the popularity of the creature is set in stone, now. This installment looks to (hopefully) be the polar opposite of the '98 American movie, too - so this film will take an approach like that of IDW's recent "Half-Century War" miniseries, where Godzilla can not only take everything human beings can throw at him (MechaGodzilla, anyone), but becomes something human beings will have to live with and in some instances, come to rely on.
Possible Stinger:A exotic jungle is seen. We hear gunshots.A man in tribal outfit comes and he goes to a temple. He is dying of a gunshot wound. In the temple there is a giant egg. He says the native language word for help. He dies and the egg cracks. The screen goes black and we hear chirping.
A version of Steve Martin will appear.The american version of the original Gojira (A.K.A. Godzilla: King of the Monsters) added in new scenes with an additional character named Steve Martin (not to be confused with the actor Steve Martin), played by Raymond Burr. He basically served as an Audience Surrogate, acting as an observer and commenting on the events throughout the movie and occasionally interacting with the original cast (thanks to some clever editing and use of doubles), with his character being a noir-esque Intrepid Reporter who was a college friend of Dr. Serizawa. When the american version was brought back to Japan, the Steve Martin character became highly influential, inspiring similar reporter characters in later Godzilla movies. When The Return Of Godzilla was americanized as Godzilla 1985, the Steve Martin character was once again added in via new scenes with Raymond Burr reprising the role and delivering a thoughtful and dead-serious performance, despite the higher-ups wanting to give the movie a much lighter tone. As a nod to King of the Monsters and possibly one of the best Mythology Gags they could pull off, the 2014 movie could include the Steve Martin character again (though it obviously wouldn't be the same Steve Martin since this movie is a reboot, and because Burr unfortunately died in 1993, they'd have to get a different actor to play the character). Should they do so, they could also use this opportunity to give the character more backstory than just "he's a college friend of Dr. Serizawa" and even expand on the backstory he already has. Also, since this is an entirely new movie made from scratch, there's also more opportunities for Steve Martin to interact with the rest of the cast (especially Dr. Serizawa, who he barely spoke with despite the two being college friends).
The events of this film will cause the formation of G-Force, or something similar.With humanity being hitherto completely unprepared to deal with the threat of kaiju, it makes sense that an organization would quickly be formed to specifically counter that threat. Depending on where the franchise goes, this organization may be responsible for the creation of Mechagodzilla.
A few potential Mythology Gags
The other two monsters will be puppetsIf the rumors that Godzilla will be portrayed with a rubber suit along with CGI as per Toho's request are true, it probably wouldn't come as a surprise that, also at Toho's request, the other two monsters that Godzilla will fight would also be portrayed with similar methods such as puppetry and animatronics.
Godzilla's rampage will be at least in part because his offspring is missing.At least one Godzilla Jr. will be stuck somewhere in an American West Coast city, possibly taken by M.U.T.O. for research and/or experimentation.
Godzilla will emerge from the Earth's mantle.Screenshots have shown M.U.T.O. cordoning off various massive holes in the ground, including Turkmenistan's "Door to Hell," for research. It is possible that Godzilla (and maybe his offspring) emerged from one of these holes, having been dormant in subterranean magma since prehistoric times up until nuclear tests awakened him. Him having endured the high pressures found down there may be used in the movie's explanation of how he gets past the Square/Cube Law.
The Mutos were created by M.U.T.O. to fight Godzilla.The original founders of what became M.U.T.O. may have encountered Godzilla in the past and realized that he could be a huge threat to humans. In response, they started making genetically-enhanced creatures called Mutos that they could control and use to fight Godzilla. Unfortunately, when Godzilla attacked again, the Mutos ended up being hyper-aggressive and uncontrollable, simply adding to the danger and destruction already brought by their intended target. This forces M.U.T.O. to lure Godzilla himself into a fight with the Mutos so that there would at least be two less monsters to deal with.
This movie will result in more Godzilla movies being rereleasedSo far, Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster, Godzilla vs. Hedorah, and Godzilla vs. Gigan have all been licensed by Section 23 Films and are set to be rereleased on May 6th under their new Kraken Releasing subdivision. There's also Universal rereleasing King Kong vs. Godzilla and King Kong Escapes on Blu-Ray, even though those are still just the American cuts. So far, the remaining Godzilla films that would need a rerelease are...
The centipede-like monster is actually the larval form of this movie's version of Mothra.Material given so far seems to indicate that the winged, spider-like Mutos (hostile artificial creations) and the centipede monster are separate species. The teaser also had Oppenheimer's narration about Vishnu being said while the camera pans over this monster's corpse, and Mothra has traditionally been characterized as a Good Is Not Nice deity who puts humans in their place without being cruel about it. Plus, Gareth Edwards' pledge to make the film more faithful to the Godzilla franchise (as evidenced by things like the more faithful Godzilla design and the return of Daisuke Serizawa) may mean that he would want to reintroduce another staple Godzilla monster early on in this continuity, and who better than the franchise's most famous non-villainous monster besides Godzilla himself?
The American military will start off trying to use a nuclear bomb on Godzilla to no avail.The poster◊ shows what looks an awful lot like a massive, fiery blast crater in the middle of San Francisco. Of course, the poster also shows Godzilla alive and kicking, apparently indicating that this incarnation of Godzilla is invulnerable to nukes.
One of Godzilla's attributes is that his radioactivity somehow unintentionally generates powerful storms in his wake.The teaser shows the HALO jumpers diving through an enormous storm cloud, and the shot of Ford catching sight of Godzilla himself is portrayed with unusually frequent lightning strikes lighting up the scene. Furthermore, typing "storm" or "superstorm" into the M.U.T.O. Research website brings up a message about a major storm hitting the Pacific seaboard (i.e. the location of Godzilla's primary rampage), which may imply that the storm is a pivotal part of the plot that has something to do with Godzilla.
The sequel will be titled "King of the Monsters."This will continue the trend followed by The Dark Knight and Man of Steel, two other movies by Legendary Pictures, of eventually naming their films of Long Runner franchises after the iconic nickname of the central character.
The ever anticipated second trailer will be screened before the theatrical release of 300: Rise of an EmpireBoth films are produced by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, and the second trailer has to be released eventually. It'll especially help to calm down the fans who were pissed off that the trailer wasn't released on February 14th.
Either the advertising or the film itself will feature "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons.The song's lyrics about radioactivity, The End of the World as We Know It, mutations and "the new age," along with the harsh electronic style, would obviously fit in with the themes and the grim tone of this movie.
Possible songs for the movie's soundtrack
The second or third trailers will reveal finally Godzilla's designI completely understand that they want to keep the designs of Godzilla, the Mutos, and the centipede monster a secret so they can gauge interest in the movie, and so far in the case of the latter two, they've successfully managed to do so. However, Godzilla's design has practically already been revealed, starting with his head design◊ getting leaked, and then moving down to his upper◊ torso◊. And even if the design wasn't leaked, the concept◊ statues◊ and◊ models◊, toy◊ figurines◊, and this shot◊ from Godzilla Encounter already give us a good idea of what Godzilla will look like (and also confirm that he actually will look like himself this time). For the either the second trailer or the final trailer, they can still not show the Mutos and the centipede monster, but they might as well go ahead and show off Godzilla's final design. And who knows, it might attract even more attention, which could be a good thing.
M.U.T.O. stands for "Mutated Underground Terrestrial Organism."Which fits in with all the sinkholes shown in the viral marketing material, and may be the origin of the Mutos themselves.
The appearance of Godzilla and the Mutos is actually the result of a plot by the Xiliens.It will be gradually unveiled over the course of this continuity that the Xiliens, using M.U.T.O. as a front organization, are involved in the creation and/or mutation of these giant monsters. Their plan is to have the monsters rampage across the planet to make it easier to Take Over the World. It is also possible that this is all only known to the higher-ups in M.U.T.O., while lower ranking individuals such as Serizawa and Wates think they're meant to combat the monsters.
Godzilla is actually the true Big Bad of the movieYes, Godzilla's usually been portrayed as a very destructive anti-hero in the older movies, especially the Showa movies. However, it's important to remember that in the first movie, Godzilla was more or less the closest thing the film had to an antagonist, even if he was portrayed sympathetically. It wasn't until the fifth Showa movie that Godzilla started to act more heroically, and he was still eventually reverted back into an antagonist when the series was rebooted into the Heisei era. The Mutos and the centipede monster could serve as secondary antagonists (much like Anguirus did), but Godzilla will most likely be the film's main Big Bad. Also, in the bit of Joseph Brody audio that was released as a sneak peek for the second trailer, Brody is clearly referring to something pretty damn big, something that will "send us back to the Stone Age". The Mutos, while definitely big, are about as big as Godzilla's foot, and we know too little information about that centipede monster to draw any conclusions about it, so just who else could Joseph Brody be referring to?
Rodan will appear in the movie as the third Kaiju.As seen in the official trailer, the Jets falling out of the sky can't seem to be caused by Godzilla, as he's probably busy wrecking the city. Could Rodan be making them fall down? You can see something swoop out of the sky and into the ocean at 1:32. And at 2:06, you can see what appears to be a massive talon slam into the ground. Rodan appearing would also make sense, because Godzilla's most recognized opponents are Rodan and Mothra, who had their own movies and form the Classic Trio for Toho. Perhaps the Mutos are reimagined versions for Mothra's larvae?
When the movie is released on DVD and Blu-Ray...... the back of the cases will have Godzilla's copyright icon◊, as well as newly created copyright icons for the Mutos and the centipede monster.
Serizawa was assigned to Janjira by M.U.T.O to cover up the damages
Serizawa will use the Oxygen Destroyer... just not on GodzillaHe will probably use the Oxygen Destroyer on one of the Mutos in the final battle in order to give Godzilla an upper hand, killing himself in the process while telling Ford something similar to what the original character told Ogata.
Godzilla will, at the very least, be a Sociopathic Hero.
One of the Mutos will either be an explicit update or an Expy of Gigan.At least one of the Mutos looks very similar to Upgraded Gigan with a bit of the Cloverfield monster in him. Imagine Gigan if he lurched over and used his hooks as arms in the same way a bat does. Logically, he'd store his wings in the 'hooks' and use them more than normal Gigan uses his wings. More than likely, the Muto will just mutate and be Gigan-like, as a nod to the character, and not actually very Gigan-ish at all otherwise. Although, the idea of a possible strange alien creature getting mutated/empowered by science DOES sound a whole lot like Gigan, so maybe...
The Rhedosaurus will be one of the enemies Godzilla will have to fight.And he will have the remains of a lighthouse on it's back and a fog horn-like roar. After all, The Rhedosaurus is so old, its copyright is almost over, to the point that no one would even try to start a lawsuit.
The centipede monster will be a part of the 1999 incidentThe 1999 incident that M.U.T.O. is covering up could be a fight between Godzilla and the centipede monster that caused massive collateral damage to their surroundings, and ended with Godzilla as the victor, obviously. That giant skeleton seen in the main trailer could be that of the centipede monster, rotting for 15 years after Godzilla killed it.
Legendary's Dr. Serizawa is a relative of the original and possibly someone else from the Showa seriesNew viral images from Monarch Research identify Dr. Serizawa's first name as being Ichiro rather then Daisuke. Perhaps a certain latchkey kid obsessed with kaiju had a mysterious uncle that he decided to follow into science.
Sandra Brody isn't actually dead.Privately screened scenes from the movie, along with other promotional materials, make it out that Sandra died at Janjira in 1999 after Joe was forced to lock her and other workers behind a door to keep toxic gas from leaking out. However, it's possible that Joe only thinks she died then, but she actually exploited the incident to go undercover for Monarch.
Godzilla will only use his thermonuclear breath once in the entire filmThis way, it will emphasize how dangerous Godzilla is just by his sheer physical power and give proper weight to his most famous ability. He will use it as Finishing Move at the end of the movie and this will show how bad things have really become for humanity as a whole.
Godzilla will possess a Size Shifting abilityTherefore simultaneously explaining his humongous size on the poster and hanging a lampshade on the ridiculous incongruances present in the original movie.
The Mutos are alien in origin.Just look at their design. They're vertebrates, but they've got bizarrely angular bodies and at least six limbs—in general they're structured like no other creature on Earth. Godzilla, at least, barring the incredible size, could have conceivably evolved on Earth. But there's no way anything on the planet could have evolved into a Mutos.
This movie will produce at least one scene as infamous as the "Flying Godzilla" momentLike Godzilla using the excess heat released through his spinal plates to burrow like a subterrene.
If King Ghidorah appears in a sequelHe'll be portrayed as a genuine Eldritch Abomination and God of Evil, perhaps as a personification of mass extinction.
There will be in fact 3 Mutos! Instead of 2!Godzilla dwarfs the two mutos we previously seen. With the question towards Serizawa being if the Alpha predator stands a chance. I personally don't believe that a winged Muto or a landcrawler that comes up to his knee to be really threatening Godzilla.
The sequel will feature an extraterrestrial colonization projectThe threat of Kaiju like Godzilla will lead Earth's governments seriously consider the possibility of extinction, and make serious efforts to sponsor a voyage into deep space to locate a habitable planet. Said voyage will eventually lead to a doomed spaceship crew investigating the charred remains of a once-inhabited alien planet...where a mysterious three-headed dragon still lurks among the ashes, waiting to devour another planet. Cue "Godzilla vs. Ghidorah" showdown.
Joe was not talking about Godzilla in his "send us back to the Stone Age" speechHe was talking about the Muto.
The majority of the urban destruction is caused by the Mutos, not Godzilla.Godzilla is still going to do his share of damage to buildings and suchlike, but does so in his zeal to destroy his enemies.
This Godzilla is a prehistoric crocodylomorph that was heavilly irradiated in the K/Pg extinction, not a dinosaur; and the Muto are human anti-kaiju measures gone awry. Also, a guessing plot...This Godzilla, moreso than any other, looks very crocodylian in design; he has armor-plated hide (mutated from his natural osteoderms, maybe), back scutes, and his arms look very crocodyle-esque, as does the tail, legs and head; so it's possible that Godzilla in this canon is a crocodylomorph (like Kaprosuchus, for instance) that was heavily irradiated by the Cretaceous/Palaeogene extinction event, but somehow managed to survive it (possibly he wasn't matured at the time?), absorbed the radioactive energies from the impact and began mutating; within 3 million years he had mutated into a 40-metre high titan. When he was discovered in late Feburary of 1954 (likely already in-around 100 metres tall and having the Atomic Heat Ray), the United States Military launched Castle Bravo at him in March, hoping to vaporize the mutant before any damage could be done to them or another nation. Alas, this only aroused Godzilla's ire and further increased his power; he grew to 110 feet tall, let off so much radiation he could kill a man of radiation sickness in 48 hours or so if untreated, and generally became even more dangerous and pissed-off than he was before. So, in November of 1954, Godzilla made landfall in Kyoto. Unprepared for the leviathan's appearance, the JSDF were totally helpless as Godzilla's thunderous footfalls echoed, his march unopposed. His Atomic Heat Ray melted anything that tried to stop him, and by December of that year, Kyoto was rendered uninhabitable from the enormous radiation output. Very few are known to have survived the incident, and Godzilla was seemingly destroyed with the prototype of the Oxygen Destroyer, the only one to exist, by Dr. Daisuke Serisawa. Alas, it was not to be. January of 1985 saw Godzilla return with full force, and Kyoto was no longer the target; now it was Tokyo itself that was the target. Once more, the JSDF attempted to stop Godzilla, to no avail; he again marched unopposed to Tokyo. This time, though, the JSDF had a new anti-nuclear weapon; the Super-X. Alas, eventually Godzilla managed to destroy the Super-X in a ball of flame. Unopposed once more, Godzilla again marched unopposed, destroying the metropolis. However, recordings of bird calls managed to lure Godzilla into the active Mt. Mihara, once more seemingly destroying the titan. Again, they were wrong. When 1994 came, Godzilla celebrated the new year by assaulting Miami, once more catching the world off-guard. He had endured not only the Oxygen Destroyer, a weapon that painfully asphyxiated animals and destroyed their molecules, but he had survived being trapped under a tectonic plate and being surrounded by boiling magma for 10 years. Was this creature truly indestructible? The creature, this time, left of it's own accord. 2014 comes, and the UN has decided that Godzilla is not just a Japanese threat, but a threat to the world. They begin the 'Massive Undesireable Terrestial Organism team, and the Mutos are created as a measure to counter Godzilla. But, unfortunately for the MUTO team, their creations go berserk and begin assaulting the world. Due to being made to rival Godzilla in every way and being reproductive, the Muto are now the biggest threat. (This following part is coming from the Strike Zone game:) At this point, the M.U.T.O team consists of Ford, Serizawa, Sandra, Graham, Stenz and Joe; and Elle joins them when Godzilla makes landfall and begins severely injuring people in his fight with the berserk Mutos as a nurse for the wounded. Whilst Godzilla duels with the Mutos, the M.U.T.O team are trying to save as many lives as possible and get them aboard helicopters to rescue them from death. (And back to the possible film plot:) The omnipresent threat of Godzilla and the Muto are looming, their battle cries echoing across the city, as the M.U.T.O group must avoid being crushed, incinerated, devoured or otherwise killed by the two giants using the city as their battleground. Godzilla's fight with the Muto is turning for the worst as the speedier, more agile Muto zip around Godzilla and cut into his hide with their claws. Eventually, the M.U.T.O team (along with Elle) must journey into the Muto's hive in an attempt to destroy the menaces; a wounded and bloodied Godzilla eventually triumphs over the Muto, destroying their corpses with his thermonuclear heat ray and returning into the ocean. He collapses as he enters the ocean, the severe wounds and blood loss causing Godzilla to faint. Waltz, the Master-Seargent of the troop, contemplates if they should kill Godzilla or let him live; on the one hand, he did decimate major cities...but on the other hand, he did save them from the Muto... Ultimately, the army prepares to fire at Godzilla's severely wounded neck, but Elle grabs the helicopter controls from Stenz and places the vehicle in front of the heavilly wounded Godzilla, and tried to reason with Waltz; to no avail. Running out of options, Elle has to threaten Waltz; if he and his troop fire on Godzilla, she was willing to have the helicopter - and everyone inside - taken with him. Waltz prepares to fire, but the idea of killing Ford lurks in his mind. Godzilla's low, pained roars also dig under his skin; bringing to mind not a monsterous destroyer, but a wounded person. Godzilla's eyes make contact with his, and Waltz tries to ignore any emotion present...but Godzilla's pained, weak roars and heavilly-wounded body keep making him think of a wounded soldier fighting for his country or a samurai protecting those he is loyal to from threats. Finally, Waltz orders the troops to stand down, and Godzilla slowly gets to his feet and wades into the ocean to recover from his wounds. The kaiju turns back to the beach and lets out a roar, almost as if he was thanking them for sparing his life. Elle and Joe share a kiss and the others congratulate themselves for the success. Elle ponders if Godzilla really is the last of his kind; what if more of his kind exist somewhere out there? They laugh it off, but the idea lingers...
In the sequel there will be a new religion that worships Godzilla.Serizawa already speaks of him in reverent terms, and the news broadcast at the end paints Godzilla in a heroic light. It'd be similar to the reveal of the kaiju-worshipping cult in Pacific Rim, except those believed the kaiju were divine wrath and the Godzilla ones will believe he's a divine savior.
In the inevitable Godzilla / Pacific Rim crossover...
The events of the original 1954 movie happened in the universe of this movieIt's a pretty easy theory. The movie points out that many of the bomb tests in the 50s were actually a cover story for trying to kill Godzilla. The director has said the Dr. Serizawa in the 2014 version is a descendant of the one in the original movie. That should be enough. But it isn't a stretch to believe that the events of the first movie happened and were covered up. In fact, this could explain why Serizawa in the 2014 movie believes so much in Godzilla as a creature. It is possible that the Godzilla in this movie is a different monster than the one in the original, making this movie/series the same as the Toho versions.
The 1954 movie is 2014!Serizawa's recollections from his childhoodMaybe the 1954 movie was an overblown re-telling of the events that made it seem like there was a lot more destruction then there actually was, like a story 1954!Serizawa told a young 2014!Serizawa that got stretched by exaggeration and a child's imagination. This would explain why Godzilla looks silly up close (like someone's halloween costume) and why some of the destruction scenes look like toys-it was 2014!Serizawa acting out what his ancestor told him.
Godzilla will become a father in a sequelOr at least an adoptive father of some sort. Given the film's emphasis on the importance of family, this seems like it could be plausible.
Godzilla resides on Monster IslandAnd that where he was going at the end of the film. Back home.
Hedorah will be the villain of the sequelPollution is a very serious/important issue of today's world. What better way to use it than to have a monster that is living pollution as the major threat to the world? It could be likely if Yoshimitsu Banno (who directed Godzilla vs. Hedorah and was planning a sequel to that movie) is allowed to stay.
Mothra will appear in the sequelLet's count the signs, chronologically:
The Zilla from "Godzilla" (1998) was Godzilla's mate.The movie goes out of it's way to claim that the MUTO's are just massive animals, and the two monsters that Godzilla fights are trying to mate in his territory. It even shows how the male and female members of the same species can look slightly different. This means that Godzilla has his own species.
The M.U.T.O.s don't actually have eyes.Those red-orange Tron Lines that look like eyes are simply that: just Tron Lines. The way they actually "see" is through a mix between echolocation and a "radar" for electricity, electrochemical impulses, and radiation.
This Godzilla will appear in a Toho film alongside the original.Just like Zilla did, although likely in a much more flattering role.
Some organization will attempt to devise an anti-kaiju weapon built on the skeleton from the beginning of the movieAnd that's how we will get Mecha-Godzilla.
Later movies will feature materials reverse-engineered from the bodies of the MUTOs.Being the source of the materials used to build the obligatory giant robots.
The sequels will possibly be co-produced by UniversalAs stated on the main page, Legendary Pictures' contract with Warner Bros. ended with Godzilla (2014), and they're now producing movies with Universal. Whether or not it would be a good thing is debatable, but it would certainly lead from one case of Hilarious in Hindsight to another.
Angurius will appear in the sequel...... assuming that Toho gives permission to include Toho monsters other than Godzilla. It'd only be fitting that the first Toho monster they'd bring back would be the very first monster that Godzilla ever fought.
Godzilla is JesusHe appears only to fight the sins of man. He saves mankind, dies, resurrects and leaves. And humans rejoice and claim him as the King. The sins of humans are nuclear power/weapons/waste and excessive mining. (Overusing the resources which is in pretty much every post-apocalyptic movie nowadays.) These activities create/wake up/release the M.U.T.O.s.
Mechagodzilla or Mechaghidorah will appear in the sequel.In the first film, Serizawa says that the arrogance of mankind is thinking that we can control nature. The sequel will involve us trying to do this literally by controlling monsters through technological means.
Possible DVD featuresThe most apparent would be a short film called Godzilla vs. the MUT Os, which is basically the whole movie entirely through the monsters' perspective while cutting out all the unnecessary human drama, with Godzilla as the hero battling the evil MUT Os in a battle to the death. The whole thing would a glorious throwback to the over-the-top monster fights of older Godzilla films with plenty of Showa wackiness, not to mention a LOT shorter.
Confirmed Kaiju roles and appearance
The Sequel..... Will contain the following:
The Mutos are reptiles, or at least are closely related to them
The sequels will each be a Spiritual Successor to the other Gamera sequelsThe 2014 movie is seen as a Spiritual Successor to Gamera: Guardian of the Universe. Perhaps Legendary will likely decide to continue this idea to an extant.
Biollante will appear in a sequelScientists try to mix Godzilla's DNA with those of plants to create a new breed of crops or to restore forests. However, they accidentally create the monster Biollante who begins to terraform the Earth in a hostile jungle world. She would still have the powers of her Heisei counterpart: corrosive acid, a croc-like jaw, and snapping tentacles. It would fit the themes of tragic monster and misuse of nature.
Destroyah will appear in a sequelLegendary is trying to turn their Godzilla to The Dark Knight Saga. If they're introducing a giggling For the Evulz villain in the second installment, why not introduce the ultimate Hero Killer villain in the final film? Here, it would be Destroyah, the equivalent of Batman's Bane and Superman's Doomsday.
