I'd say there are several Toho monsters which would work in Mainstream Hollywood. Many are just mutated dinosaurs, like Rodan, Anguirus, Varan, Baragon. Others are giant insects with no mystic background at all, like Kumonga (I know, spiders are not an insects) or Megaguirus. And since Transformers were done for Mainstream Hollywood, I could even see them doing Mechagodzilla or a kick-ass version of Gigan.
Persoanlly I want to see mutated dinosaur creatures so for me, for an American viewer things like Mechagodzilla and Gigan are out of the question. I wouldn't mind seeing Rodan or Anguirus.
These movies are going to be a serious take on Godzilla and Mechagodzilla and Gigan are associated with the cheesier movies. I guess they could be done more seriously I just don't want to see them in an American movie.
