Real Life Godzilla Locations
There is no “multiverse” in the manner of DC comics, Star Trek, or Ultraman. That would imply that travel between the various continuities were possible.
But there ARE various timelines, none of which are related. I mean, you COULD argue that G’54, or at least the Bravo experiment, was some sort of Nexus point. But it was never intended as such. Just like the Zelda games and that asinine backwards-developed timeline.
The sad fact is that, regardless of quality, Gamera will ALWAYS be in the shadow of Godzilla. After all, that was the purpose of his creation - a Godzilla competitor. In the US, where we have an even more aggressively reductionist view towards monster movies, Gamera just can’t compete.
Does he deserve as much attention? Not necessarily, given that he only has a handful of legitimately good films, but he certainly deserves better. The Gamera trilogy are some of the best monster movies since the 60’s, and Gamera the Brave is the best monster movie of the early 2000’s, barring perhaps GMK.
