Godzilla vs. Giant Monster Varan (ゴジラ対大怪獣バラン,   Gojira tai Daijaijű Baran) is an early proposal for the seventh Heisei Godzilla film.

Plot

The giant monster Varan, the harbinger of the apocalypse, appears to destroy the world in the year 1999. Godzilla and his adopted son LittleGodzilla join forces to defeat Varan. As they return to the sea, the year 2000 begins.

History

One of the earliest known proposals for the final Heisei Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Giant Monster Varan was to revive Varan, last seen in 1968's Destroy All Monsters, as the main antagonist.[1] Ultimately the idea was discarded in favor of Godzilla vs. Godzilla, though elements from this story resurfaced in a later proposal, Godzilla vs. Bagan.[2]

Man...can you imagine if this had gone through? Would have been quite the boost for the big gliding lizard.

As much as I love the idea of Varan being a harbinger (or really Varan coming back at all) I am pretty glad that they went with Destoroyah, he's one of my favorite monsters

I think this would have been a good idea and I good send off with the possible that one day Godzilla would come back

I'm just more curious about what he would've been capable of. Considering he's rarely portrayed with any other abilities, besides flight and poison spines.

Plus, why Varan, out of all the Showa kaiju? No offense, but it feels kinda like an oddly random pick for a Heisei Godzilla antagonist.

I would have loved to see Varan absolutely massive, dwarfing even Godzilla, at 120 meters tall, but GvD is my favorite Heisei movie so I am fine. I like how the whole demonic concept was carried to Destoroyah.
