Spreading across the internet right now is that image above, which InfamousKidd claims is the early design for Godzilla in the upcoming reboot. Obviously it looks extremely close to a Toho design, and the site claims that after the GINO debacle; Toho is being very strict with how much the US filmmakers can alter Godzilla.
Even more unbelievable, the site claims that the Godzilla in the movie will be a guy in a suit with a head controlled by animatronics and touch ups done with CG. It’s pretty hard to believe that they would go in that direction for such a big budget tent pole, so while it’ll be awesome to see a rubber-suited Godzilla on the big screen with a huge budget…I’ll believe it when I see it.
The Godzilla reboot will be directed by Gareth Edwards, who made some waves with his micro-budget monster movie Monsters. I watched it on Netflix instant streaming a few months ago, and I am honestly glad I didn’t pay anything to watch it. Hopefully his take on Godzilla is a bit different.
