If it is part of the story, why the hell is it coming up from underground? Just to be a punk? Hopefully it is some lost civilization or something (Gurren Lagaan?)...
Yes, kind of like the Transformers one that hit years ago. More promise there though.
I think it would have been hidden at some point prior to the city being built. All the "Shogun Warriors" would be scattered over the globe for key points to defend.
The trailer is just that, showing a bad ass bit, that's all. Doing a Daiku Maru flying along launching the parts and forming the bot... would give more of a kid flick impression.
Just spit balling ideas.
The whole thing is plagiarizing across the board so. make the plot that the Illuminati are one of the first human races. They came here fleeing an enemy that routed them thousands of years ago. They blended in with the human race here and began "shepherding" humanity into a more comfortable level and hopefully into better race as well as allies. Then the shit hits the fan, the enemy shows up. So, the Illuminati begin drafting "gifted" humans to help pilot these super robots to defend the Earth, robots hidden all over the earth over the centuries near or within major urban centers.
All of that is pretty much the original Marvel comic as well as several obvious others.
