After the success of the recent slate of Godzilla movies, Toho is looking to start a brand new Godzilla Cinematic Universe. But it's looking like those plans don't include a sequel to one of the best Godzilla movies of all time.

Video: Below the surface, the Godzilla films have always served as a commentary on everything from jingoism to the perils of nuclear weapons. But most of us only watch the movies for the wanton destruction of entire cities, which is even more satisfying with the advent of modern computer-generated visual effects.
Don't expect Supergirl's Gotham Easter egg to lead to Batman's arrival on the show. A Luke Cage star is circling Alita: Battle Angel. Doctor Strange shows off its humorous side in new footage. The first set pictures from Punisher filming are here. Plus, new looks at Moana and Channel Zero. To me, my spoilers!
Clocking in at 118.5 meters tall, the latest incarnation of the king of kaiju seen in Shin Godzilla is the largest version ever seen on screen -- even coming in above legendary's monstrous take on Big G in 2014. But the very first Godzilla was less than half that size... and that wouldn't help him much in modern Japan.
Video: Shin Godzilla is just about to premiere in Japan, and so it's time for a new trailer. Just like the first, it's solemn, but jam-packed with a) concerned Japanese people, and b) the King of Kaiju shrugging off some pretty hefty resistance like it's no big deal.
The one thing that stands out about the new King of the Monsters on display in Shin Godzilla is how goddamn weird it looks. It's recognisably Godzilla, but all gnarled and messed up in a way that looks quite unlike any take on Godzilla we've seen before. Which is why it's always so fascinating to see, even in artwork.
