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.

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.

Well they said Godzilla will fight at least one other monster in the film so I'm assuming it be a new monster. I hope he doesn't fight any familiar monsters too, though like I said plenty of times before, he could fight monsters that are tributes to the classic ones like in Godzilla the Series to keep it original.

I don't want any form of residue from the Emmerich and Devilin disaster to be involved in this film. Besides, TOHO has a hand in this project so none of that will be happening UNLESS they are planning to let Godzilla trash them without breaking a sweat like he did Zilla in Final Wars.

Godzilla the Series was a whole lot better than Godzilla 1998. Comparing the two just because they have similar monsters (one of them is more in tune to the Japanese Godzilla) is dumb. Making tributes to monsters of Toho or making their own original monsters is a good idea as trying to buy the copyrighted monsters costs alot of money.

That is your opinion that is was better and you are entitled to it. It's not a FACT that it was better. I watched the series myself and it was fair at best in my 'opinion.' If I may quote Samuel L. Jackson from the movie 'Juice', "Just because your pour syrup on *blank* doesn't make it pancakes." The series made the best out of a tragically horrendous failure of a movie. I'm not going you insult YOU by saying your opinion is stupid just because I disagree with it. Just because you decided to separate the movie from the series doesn't mean it IS it IS NOT separate. Since the cartoon was produced by the EXACT same company the did the films (Centropolis Entertainment,) used the exact same characters from the movie, and used the exact same storyline from the movie it really doesn't make a whole lot of since to separate the two. Before the epic fail of box office returns came back for G98 they were planning to make sequels. For all we know some of the monsters in the cartoon series were going to in potential sequels.

As I said before, TOHO has a hand in the development of this film so there is no logical reason why there would be a problem using Kaiju from their universe. This movie would not even be happening if it were not so. Furthermore, if any company can 'afford' to pay copyrights to uses characters (going on the assumption that would even be necessary) it would be Time Warner which owns Warner Bros. They could eat TOHO if they wanted to. Sony could have also. Cost is not an issue, but greed is. Any amount of money to use 'King Ghidorah', 'Mothra', or 'Rodan' would pale in comparison to the money invested in acquiring the rights to use Godzilla, so it's a moot point.

My previous point stands. Leave the 1998 Godzilla alone. I'm sure Gareth Edwards being a fan of the series wants to do a REAL Godzilla movie the is traditional to the TOHO design, story, sound, and action. From what was reported at the 2012 Comic-Con the teaser exemplified just that. I'm sure he wants to put his own stamp on the film and has his own ideas for monsters. One of the reasons he was chosen as director was because of his work done on the movie 'Monsters' so he doesn't need to use anything from the 98 cartoon series. Not to mention the Sony owns the rights to THOSE characters so it would be an even bigger mess to secure rights from them to use those monsters. There is just no scenario where using anything from G98 makes logical sense, but, that IS just my opinion.

You don't seem to understand me. I said they can make original monsters that are tributes to the classic ones. I'm using Godzilla the Series as an example. Like C-Rex being a tribute to Ebirah or King Cobra being a tribute to Manda. I never said anything about them using the monsters from Godzilla the Series. I mean inspiration dude. Sure I wouldn't mind seeing monsters from the classics appear too but they have to be updated like from the Neoverse and not be shitty-looking. Let's be honest, Mothra in an American Godzilla film would be stupid because the idea of Godzilla fighting a giant moth never sat well with me especially with those annoying fairies. I heard the Godzilla at Comic Con is similar to the fan art I have so we're all god one it looking like the classic monster.

Gareth Edwards is gonna make the monsters HE wants to make because HE is the director. Period. There is no reason to make monsters that are a 'tribute' to the original monsters when they already HAVE access to the original monsters. That is something you seem not to be able to grasp.

According to those whom saw the trailer there was a large centipede or caterpillar-type creature laying in the wreckage so there is already a possibility of a Mothra-like foe in the film. If Mothra was not popular then she would not have been in 5 SHOWA series movies, 5 HEISEI series movies (three of which was Mothra's own trilogy) and three of the Millennium series. So apparently Mothra "sits well" with plenty enough people. That's all I'm going to say about it.

"sighs and smh" I was just saying "using monsters as a tributes thing" as an example. The guy can make or use any monster he wants. I could care less. I'm just say it would be cool if he did make original monsters as tributes to the classic monsters. You're the one that doesn't seem to get it. Mothra to me is a monster I don't really like, I never liked her. It would be really weird to have the whole mystical thing in this " dark gritty actioner" film unless Mothra turns out to be a mutant then that would make more sense and be appropriate. Honestly the centipede monster might not even make it to the film, it's probably just a concept monster. It make more sense for Godzilla to fight something similar to him. I'm just expressing my opinion on the whole tribute thing as it would make sense. If you're going troll about the whole Godzilla 1998 thing, I might as well just block you because you still don't seem to understand what I'm saying.

How are they going to explain a gorilla around the size of Godzilla? That probably won't happen as this film is mostly not scifi. They are going for if monsters really attacked scenario.

Then if it's mostly not scifi, doen't a Godzilla lose it's luster? It's Godzilla not Cloverfield, which sucked ass! I know that the Godzilla won't be anything like that, where he's never going to been seen and the foucs is only on the humans, but the point of Godzilla is scifi crazness not scenario!
