Back when the Giganotosaurus was announced we were joking that they would not yet again go for the establishing it is "Bigger and better" than T Rexes because they know the inmense hate that caused when they tried to do that with the Spinosaurus in Jurassic Park 3... If they did they might as well just rename the series "Outdoing T Rexes"...
Well...Go figure...They did just that yet again. and while many fans have understood what that means in the big picture, there seem to be other fans who just keep saying "Oh but no worries, then Rexy will have a rematch with a new Giga later in the movie":
To those I have to say you are completely missing the point.
The point is that 3 of the las 4 films have so firmly established 3 times now that everytime T Rexes fight other therapods they always get easily killed in just a few seconds and they have established that T Rexes are the easiest to defeat therapods in the franchise so many times now that even IF a rematch with a Giga happens it will not fix or change the fact that T Rexes are the worst fighters and easiest to defeat therapods within canon.
Lets look at the record shall we? JP3 had the Spino killing that Rex in under 20 seconds, in JW the Indominus killed Rexy in under 20 seconds if not for Blue and now JWD has that Giga wich killed that Rex under 15 seconds. How is that not ruining or at least diminishing the species that was hyped up in the first 2 films as one of the most dominant predators in history?
And I am aware that some fans have tried to explain all of those loses by saying "Oh but that Rex in JP3 was a juvenile and not a fully grown adult" (wich I think was not a valid argument because the point of JP3 was to establish that this "new" species was much superior to T Rexes so why would they do that by having it kill only a teen Rex? Then some fans use the excuse that Rexy was quickly destroyed by the Indominus because the Indominus was designed to be bigger and stronger but to be honest, there was not THAT much of a difference in size and strength between them. And now the Giga... There is no excuse this time around there is no "it was too young" or "it was too old" argument now. The size difference (if there was any) was hard to even note. There is also no excuse of "it was fighting an altered mutant freak" since both were "Pure" DNA. So there is no excuse for this prehistoric Rex to also get so easily destroyed so easily in under a mere 15 seconds.
They have simply ruined T Rexes within canon in a way that can not be fixed. And some might still say "but there is still the rematch that Rexy could win against a new Giga", yeah but the point is they have established so many times now that T Rexes easily lose that one rematch does not fix that at this poing. Not to mention given their histoy what kind of a rematch? It is not the same Giga from prehistoric times so people can say "Yeah it took down the clone Giga but Rexy does not stand a chance against the prehistoric Giga". How long will this rematch last and who will it involve? Does Rexy also get outside help like humans or blue? Because that would also make an already unfixable situation even worse. People will say "T Rexes always need help to win fights, they can never do it alone". The only way to somewhat fix this unfixable ruining is to have Rexy kill the new Giga by herself in like 5 seconds and then having Buck (the male Rex from The Lost World) kill the Spino in less seconds than what the Spino killed that Rex in Jurassic Park 3 in order to somewhat show that T Rexes can also destroy giant therapods in very few seconds thus restoring some of their reputation but we know the will not do that (not because they think it is a bad idea but because Universal simply thinks as long as we have dinosaurs chasing people that is all that matters or at least that seems to be their mentality).
And before someone mentions "Oh but a casual moviegoer might not care about any of that". Well, yeah there are people who just see this movies to tag along with their family and do not care too much about these movies. But many other casual moviegoers are not blind. Even the most casual movie goers have noticed how every Jurassic sequel seems to be about a new T Rex losing. Not to mention some act as if the Jurassic hardcore fanbase big but not that big, uh guys, this is a top 10 franchise in film history, there are only like 6 or 7 fandoms that are bigger (Star Wars, Marvel D.C. and so on). Jurassic has millions and millions and millions of fans around the world and there is a backlash going on (or rather the backlash that started with Jurassic Park was made worse).
