^Well, sure. You raised the possibility, and I offered more information to flesh out the discussion for whoever may be reading. On the one hand, it's conceivable that he could be playing Ogata, but on the other hand, he's played enough other characters in the franchise that it's too early to know. Just getting both sides of the question in there.
Personally, I'm hoping the new film is a sequel rather than a reboot, and I'd be happy if he were Ogata; I loved it that they brought back Emiko in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah
. But I'm not going to get my hopes up.
