Bride Of Godzilla by DadaHyena Bride Of Godzilla by DadaHyena
Toho kicked around a lot of strange ideas for Godzilla movies that were ultimately never used, but this one is probably the weirdest of them all. "Bride of Godzilla?" is a completely insane story concept from 1955 that would have involved the King of the Monsters in a subterranean lost world, filled with monsters, prehistoric animals, and even mermaids! 

Godzilla and Anguirus would have appeared, along with a giant archaeopteryx and chameleon (possibly precursors for Rodan and Varan, respectively) as well as a mammoth and sea serpent. 

The mermaids help out the heroes of the story; as a way of saying thanks the humans shoot one of their babies in the head. 

The protagonist of the film is a scientist who made himself a robot daughter; his ultimate creation, however, is a huge robot woman designed as an amalgamation of said daughter and a woman who dumped him (kind of a sicko, huh?). The robo-gal clobbers all the monsters before Godzilla himself falls in love with her, carries her off to his underground lair, and cuddles up with her, not knowing that she's rigged to explode...

As completely crazy as this story sounds, I still think it's a blast. Would it have worked as a film? Who knows, but as a psychotic piece of storytelling that even the looniest fan-fiction couldn't top, it's hilariously entertaining.

I've never gone looking for it, but I'd say it's doubtful; I don't even know if a full script was ever actually written or if it was just a story treatment that never advanced any further than a synopsis.

Ever thought about making a poster for the Batman vs Godzilla movie that was talked about in the 60s

I've read about that one but I doubt it had any chance in hell of being made. That said I wouldn't be surprised if other artists have already mashed up these two properties, whether they were aware of this obscure story idea or not.

DC's Batman 66 crossover comics have been successful as well as their crossovers with IDW (who currently leased the Godzilla comics) so it's not inpossible in comic format

I guess if Batman can team up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles then he could possibly meet some other famous reptiles...!

The Legendary one? Interesting; I kind of wish they had used mammoths instead of giant oxen in 'Kong: Skull Island'.

The scientist must be the writer of the script for this movie

Ha! He'd probably adapt it into some 'Fifty Shades' type of fan fic-turned-smut.

I didn't know fifty shades of Grey's main girl was secretly a bomb.

Everyone in that book/movie should be rigged to explode.

At least it's less ridiculous than A Space Godzilla

Just when I thought Batman vs. Godzilla was the most insane rejected script I've seen.

I still don't entirely believe in that one; yes, I've read about it, but I don't think there were ever any real plans to move forward with that one I'd place it in the 'fan fiction' category. Debatable, for sure.

Agreed. That's why we need to keep this insanity alive!

Ah man... Bride of Godzilla. When I first heard about this cancelled project, I could hardly believe it. Aside from 1979's A Space Godzilla, this is my far the looniest and insane scrapped film in the franchise. I wonder what state the franchise would be in today had this movie been made. Suppose we'll never know. Wonderful interpretation of what the film may have looked like by the way!

Very true! It's all up for interpretation, but honestly, I think this would have ended the series (whereas the film that was made in its place, 'King Kong vs Godzilla', instead made Godzilla an international icon). The cost of making this film alone in the late 50's/early 60's probably would have been enough of a deterrent for Toho, but getting a nude woman to fight Godzilla on the big screen would have presented a huge set of complications.

That said, for all the craziness this story holds there's still a LOT of imagination, which is why I love it so much. I've read a lot of synopses for Godzilla scripts that never were made, but not many were as ambitious or shamelessly insane as this one.

Agreed on all fronts! I think it'd make for a great comic story of some kind. It'd certainly get people talking.
