Interesting possibilities with Tokyo SOS

Postby jrichreturns » Mon Jul 02, 2007 1:47 am

So MechaGodzilla at the end saved Goji...that leaves an open end to the return of Godzilla returning there. Also with the kaiju dna samples and allusions to other (via a printed timeline and other ref's. to attacks).

Perhaps in an anime or other medium..comics this storyline could be explored even further. Just sayin'.

Hmm..as an aside watching Chujo escape was amazing in the film.

I took it as though Godzilla died.

I'm tired and I don't feel like going into detail right now. Maybe tomorrow.

I believe he wasn't..he still was crying out and since Godzilla doesn't drown, what would have killed him? I don't think he died. He's been cocooned before and took much worse, so I doubt it.

it could be posible that if all those DNA samples are used to make an army of monsters in the future, Godzilla could return, and maybe this time with Kiryu's help.

Oddly, I literally haven't logged on here in quite a while, but I just watched SOS yesterday, and wanted to come on and ask people what they thought about the DNA shown at the end after the credits.

Very interesting. Though, the date on the dna said 3/11/99 if i remember correctly, which was about 5 years before this movie.

Very strange. Really wish it was explained!

When the G54 skeleton was extracted in GMMG, that's the important date.

I didn't interpret the end of the film as Godzilla having died, just subdued for now, as usual.

The ending, as in the shot of the DNA samples, could have been made deliberately ambiguous; it could either mean "case closed", or could have followed on to the 'Mecha Wars' proposal in the sketches above.

G didn't die, MAN! Toho would have played that angle up for some more $$$$.

I'm pretty sure Godzilla died at the end, since he was dramatically dying after Mechagodzilla stabbed him with the drill, and he and Mechagodzilla mutually sunk to their watery grave.

The "extra ending" was pretty much the same kind of ending as G54; a warning that even when one Godzilla dies, another may appear, some way or another. Only instead of nuclear tests, it's because of biotechnology!

Very good interpretation, I must say, but didn't he take worse in the chest in the previous movie via the Absolute Zero cannon? Never discount those G cells!

I did the same thing - i just watched this movie and was gonna ask some takes on the ending. Die? Godzilla? Without melting down? How do these people figure? Godzilla has been perforated and punctured a few times in his illustrious career, and has yet to die from it. Even in Giant Monsters All Out Attack the hole is not what kills him, it was just an escape route. Under water, cocooned up deep in a magma trench is probably exactly what the doctor prescribed to heal him right on up. And don't you think a re-realizing MechaGodzilla (with Godzilla 54s bones in him) would know the right thing to do to help him?

I like to see it like this - the cells in the DNA 'Special Biotechnology Institute' are the ones when they discovered Regenerator G1 in Godzilla 2000. Which i might add just strengthens the theory that Godzilla doesn't die often; remember his super regenerative powers? I think the door is left open for a showdown between what may be a mutated Godzilla/MechaGodzilla/Godzilla54 creature (similar to Mecha King Ghidorah), and a human engineered Godzilla clone from those cells. Which just might equal out to be something we have all been waiting for - a past versus present Godzilla fight. I can see a storyline, this new Mecha54Godzilla surfaces and is even more bent on Japan's destruction than Giant Monsters All Out Attack Godzilla. He looks part mechanical, part biological due to the fusion of the two giants being under lots of water pressure and magma pressure. The 'Special Biotechnology Institute' has no choice but to use the cells they have to create a new Godzilla clone that they can control and manipulate to stop this new menace. And so it goes...




Eh, too far fetched.

Tokyo SOS has nothing to do with G2K's continuity whatsoever.

I think he was referencing the concept of "g cells" that has been around since '89 but called regenerator G-1 cells in G2000, and thus referred to them as such for brevity's sake. Dang. :lol:

Did you not read the first part of what i typed? "I like to think of it like this" What part was unintelligible? :P I know what Toho did with the films, it's not like i watched with my eyes closed and ears plugged. But it does beg the question - why would Toho throw that particular scene in there anyway? With that date?

I figured he died because he descended into a deep trench. Miles and miles of ocean water will eventually crush anything.

I really can't see the whole Godzilla died thing. Especially from water pressure. He survived an Atomic Bomb.....how the hell can sinking to deep parts of the ocean kill him?

I just though He was subdued and Kirryu was taking him with him to rest in the ocean forever (or for a fairly long time).

I take it as he was just temporarily "subdued". There's still a lot of mystery left over from that story arc. It would be awesome if TOHO would get back to it in the next Godzilla series.... if there's another.
