It could be that since the kaiju genre has destruction as a large component it could simply be people not being able to figure out why a giant alien beast would come here peacefully.
Man there should be a huge mythology gag page for this
Is it bad that when they used the Oxygen Destroyer I expected a "That's a lot of fish." reference?
Would you count Ultraman as a benevolent kaiju? Because we need more Ultraman.
The Netflix series left me a little cold, in part because everyone is human scale - though at least it doesn't try to retcon the colossal scale of the original Ultraman.
There a pretty good way to allow more screen time for the monster and still keep the human element: Godzilla nature document.
How close would you get? O.o
And how would you track him when he spends most of his time underwater?
Part of the premise could be a play on the Super X that is unarmed (and probably unmanned), full of cameras and sensors.
Maybe Godzilla have to move since his old home was blow to bit
Can they get the special effects crew from King of the Monsters to work on future Toho projects? The monsters were just gorgeous in GKOTM.
American special effects and Japanese plot? Could be interesting
That or give Shinji Higuchi more money and resources.
I would love a Godzilla ride.
Just came back from the film and I was literally in awe. I loved everything about this movie. Yes, including the humans. Some of the human bits dragged on a tad, but I liked them and got more and more invested as it went on. Feel like I'm the only one who did.
Also, Mothra was literally a perfect angel and I would die for her.

Typically its the other way around
I remember some of the showa godzilla movies having scenes of just the monsters with no humans, they gave some personality to the monsters and i'd like to see something like that again.

Hollywood wouldn't want that because the idea of people just wanting to see the monsters have characterization without voices would be dumb to them.
Unless the monsters had altered voices of Hollywood actors, then maybe. There were some films that implied the Kaiju could speak, so that could be brought back.
Matt Damon as the voice for Godzilla, anyone?
The thing is, I actually think the monsters in Kotm ARE very well characterized. Without dialogue you do understand what each one is about.
I agree but i'm talking about more extended scenes outside of combat.
King of the Monsters is practically Showa Godzilla anyway.
Showa Godzilla with a touch of Heisei Godzilla in terms of scale and seriousness.
Big news from Criterion: Their milestone thousandth release will be a collection of the entire 1954 to 1975 Showa run of Godzilla.
Wonder if the Oxygen Destroyer is a set-up for Destoroyah in the future.. After all, King Ghidorah already came in contact with it and Alan and his goonies have the head. All it'll take is some genetic tampering and kaboom, instant Destoroyah, after all, Destoroyah came from the OG Oxygen Destroyer in Heisei.11
