-- I agree whole-heartedly on seeing MASER tanks in a sequel.
-- More Godzilla in the movie: I think this will certainly happen, the new movie works great on it's own but it also prime set-up for sequels. Godzilla is introduced here and the possibility for him and other daikaiju to appear is an unspoken promise by the end of the film. Future movies don't need the slow & steady build for Godzilla, only newly appearing kaiju (be they classic or new creations) need any sort of set up (which doesn't need to take long) and Godzilla can show up fully formed (so to speak) when he needs to.
-- Perhaps a combination of classic and new kaiju in the sequel. The MUTOs were rather well done, and it'd be cool to see some more new kaiju in future films. As for dipping into Toho's cast, I believe Jellydonut noted elsewhere since the MUTOs are basically insectoid creatures, Mothra's impact in the sequel, even though she was Easter egged in the movie, could have been reduced. I'd have to inlcude Kamacuras and Kumonga as well.
I'd actually like to see Mothra retain her fantasy elements, rather than reduce her to simply a giant mutant bug. The same goes for King Caesar although he doesn't necessarily have a strong fantasy element, I think much of King Caesar's back story in GvsMG may work in a future film. And on that same note, it'd be cool if King Ghidorah and Gigan remained space daikaiju if they ever appear that way the door is open for alien threats to Earth.
I guess my short list of potential return candidates in sequel would be something like (and in no particular order) Anguirus, Rodan, Varan, Baragon, and Titanosaurus. Perhaps follow the classic Marvel team-up formula of having Godzilla and the returning kaiju battle each other mid-way through the movie and then join forces against the new kaiju for the climactic battle.
