We already knew this was happening as it was announced awhile back but now we have this.

Get hyped kiddies. Crossing my fingers for a classic Toho kaiju. Mothra? Biollante? Ghidorah? Gigan?

Pretty sure that won't happen. The two movies have very different tones. Godzilla is a more grounded and serious game while Pacific Rim is more light hearted and campy. Not to mention Godzilla takes place in 2014, after the kaiju invasion had already started in Pacific Rim. So the two films can't exist in the same continuity, or else Godzilla and the Mutos wouldn't have been as shocking to the public.

I could see it happening in a comic or something where a portal opens that leads from the Pacific Rim Earth to the Godzilla Earth.

i dunno man, it's got no known weakness so far

as with pacific rim, it's likely i'll have to wait for this one to come out on sky, unless my dad buys it

my dad did actually buy pacific rim, but i was so uninterested at that time because of all the over the top hype

now i know why

so yeah, it's not on my priorities list at the moment, but when i have access to it, i will watch it, as i do with most movies

Godzilla is gonna blast Gipsy Danger with his atomic ray before it can even get in close. Godzilla's regeneration is super fast and will heal any damage dealt. Godzilla's skin is also incredibly hard to pierce. Not to mention Godzilla is larger and heavier.

He has no real feats and is as scrawny as a twig.

he took down new york, destroyed most of the military, survived a nuke, and is still on the run

he appeared in one movie, give it time, the destruction he caused is pretty big anyways

Most kaiju have done that, including Godzilla.

you're assuming a lot here.

1. you assume godzilla can see gypsy danger before it gets close. depending on the city, gypsy might be small enough to evade notice and get close before godzilla can find them and blast them with the atomic ray
2. what is it with you and regeneration? i already told you, burst damage will beat regen
3. you assume that they're hitting the skin. i don't know why when i clearly said they would hit him in the mouth, i.e. not his skin
4. size matters not his large size also means he's incredibly slow. i wouldn't be surprised if the jaeger could just juke around buildings and dodge him

it does kinda depend on the size of the city, of course. if they were in, say, new york, a jaeger could easily hide behind buildings and ambush godzilla, but if they were in a smaller city like atlanta there wouldn't be enough tall buildings to hide behind

Godzilla can do this.


In addition, he has shown incredible feats of speed and jumping. Godzilla's also not stupid, in fact he's been shown to be very intelligent. He can hear Gipsy if it's coming close. Godzilla has fought with his chest cut open and has regenerated from nothing but a heart before.

Kind of hypocritical that you harp on me for not knowing enough about Lucina in our Marth v. Lucina debate yet you clearly don't know enough about Godzilla to even be arguing.

Godzilla isn't out to destroy all humans, tho, so there'd be no reason for them to send the Jaegers after him. If anything, they'd join up against the invading Kaiju trying to xenoform the earth or whatever.

Most kaiju have done that, including Godzilla.
but you told me that all kaiju, including godzilla, had at least one weakness

maybe clover has a weakness, but it sure as hell ain't known yet

you're the kind of guy who if you were in charge of the military, would send out strikes on random places, hoping to hit somewhere at least once

the reason i'm saying this is how can you defeat something that doesn't have a weakness?

When did I say that? Besides, Goku does not have a definite weakness, yet he still has been beaten. If something doesn't have a clear weakness, you just have to overwhelm it with extreme force.

There was good writing in the film though, especially from the beginning all the way up to when
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I feel if the writers flesh out the characters a bit more and give Godzilla some more screentime, then we'll be golden. Those were the two main criticisms. It would be silly for the creators not to adjust.

writers can improve, but if they don't then they have to make the call to hire good writers. yes, there was some good writing, but there was a significant portion of the movie that didn't have good writing and that's a major flaw
