It is now official that Legendary Pictures and Universal will be bringing us a new installment in the Gareth Edwards Godzilla franchise. Not exactly a huge surprise since Godzilla is the highest grossing film of 2014. Still this leaves a lot of fans asking, what's next? Well no one is one hundred percent sure yet. Many feel that introducing some of the classic monsters is the right way to go though. The main actor of the film, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, even went on record saying he could see Mothra in a future movie. Not a huge stretch if you notice how moths show up a few times in the film's background, and how many references the director made to the classic Toho films. Even the way Godzilla looks is just a tribute to the classic movies.

So what about the classic [Godzilla](movie:45291) foes? Well there is a lot to study there. First we have to remember that it is a whole different monster. The chief creative officer, Jon Jashni, was quoted saying that the creative team's first goal was to "re-brand and re-establish the franchise." Mind this had a lot to do with the 1998 Godzilla film, but any franchise needs to establish it's own identity. Makes it seem unlikely does it not? Still there will be monsters in future films, and why not reference some of the classics? I know I would love to see King Ghidorah make a return to film, but only time will tell. Until then, chime in on your thoughts below. Do you want to see classic Godzilla foes, or do you think a sequel is a bad idea in the first place?
