At Comic Con, people who saw the teaser said there was a dead giant centipede-like monster near a building that Godzilla could possibly fight. But honestly I think that's just a concept monster and whatever monster Godzilla fights in the 2014 reboot will have to be a match for him and interesting. Toho had many concept monsters that they didn't use for their films and even the 1998 film had a concept monster (the Gyphon?) that they didn't use for whatever reason. For me, he might have to fight something that's both mutated and similar to him, maybe another mutant reptile of some kind. IMO, a giant mutant centipede doesn't seem that interesting to fight against unless it has something unique about it. In Godzilla the Series, the first monster Zilla fought were giant mutant squids and C-Rex which was an interesting-looking monster. What do you guys think?

A better fight than final wars with Zilla would be epic.
2014 Godzilla vs 1998 Zilla maaaaan that'd be awesome.
And King Kong lol

The original American Godzilla movie, written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, was to be released in 1994. It never got past the concept and scripting phase and was scrapped due to being too expensive to make, and the script was thrown out entirely when Emmerich and Devlin were hired to make the 1998 "Godzilla" movie. The original 1994 script did indeed pit Godzilla against a shapeshifting monster called the Gryphon, and had two tentative Godzilla designs: one by Stan Winston ([link]) and one by Ricardo Deldego ([link]).

I wouldn't trash the centipede idea if I was responsible for the movie. you can do lots of original rampage with a giant centipede loose in a city, like skyscraper wrapping or poison spitting

Yeah or how about a giant mutant cockroach? That shoots corrosive fiery blast from its abdomen like a bombardier beetle and is nearly invulnerable to Godzilla's nuclear ray as cockroaches are naturally immune to radiation in the first place. Mostly I hope he fights something that was mutated like him.

and when it shoots the corrosive blast the cockroach could scream: "imma farim ma acid poop!" xD

now talking serious, I like most giant bugs ideas because giant bugs are freaky as hell, with that multiple legs and antennas and mandibles and big creepy eyes...but a cockroach is the king of the insects, maybe we should leave it as a "final boss" for godzilla sequel, who knows? if tristar was thinking about a sequel of 98 movie faster will legendary start produce its own one for its godzilla

we're just forgetting one thing...if it's hard enough to explain the existence of a giant mutant dinosaur in 2014 maybe joining a giant insect will bring incoherence to the script...

Well whether he fight a giant cockroach, centipede or whatever, it probably be explain with an ongoing amount of nuclear testing being done and various creatures were affected by it, similar with Godzilla the Series. There were several Godzilla films with concept monsters and ideas that never made it though. Though having a living dinosaur that got mutated is going to be hard to explain. I hope whatever he fights is interesting and leaves an impression on many people.

It would be nice if Godzilla fought Redmoon.

I hope he fights an reboot of an older monster! I'd LOVE to see him fight a new design of GIGAN, MECHAGODZILLA, ANGUIRUS, KING GIDRAH!

Godzilla has no business fighting any established kaiju in this film. If they want to create one or a couple of throw-away monsters from him to trash that is fine. To have him fight a familiar kaiju in the first film would destroy the whole integrity and mood of the movie. He didn't need to fight anybody in 1954, he didn't need to fight anybody in 1984, and he doesn't need to fight anybody in 2014.

At the very least, if they cannot resist the temptation to have him fight an established kaiju then if should be either Anguirus or Varan. They are pretty pedestrian kaiju and his Godzilla trashes them it wouldn't be a big loss.
