Legendary Pictures is currently at work on bringing Godzilla back to the big screen and giving him the feature film he deserves after the 1998 flop. Bleeding Cool has some new details to report on the project, which is slated to hit theaters in 2012. The biggest cause for excitement is that, “There’s going to be another monster, or monsters, that Godzilla will fight. Not having this goes against the ‘spirit of the character’.” If this is the case, then who should Godzilla square off against? Mothra? Megalon? Mechagodzilla?
Hit the jump for more details on how the new Godzilla is planning to stay true to the old Godzilla.
The new Godzilla is being compared to Batman Begins. I don’t know if this means a grittier Godzilla or if Godzilla will have a value he holds most dear and then completely betrays in the third act when he defeats the villain. Legendary is also planning to homage the traditional Godzilla character, which means a return to Godzilla’s more dinosaur like form as opposed to the giant iguana of the 1998 Roland Emmerich film. However, like Emmerich’s film, Godzilla will be a CG character in a live-action movie. Also, to the surprise of no one, the movie will be in 3D.
