GODZILLA's Lead Character A Solider And Includes Two New Monsters
Chud is reporting on Godzilla details they say are 100% confirmed by Legendary/Warner Bros. They include that the lead human character will be a solider. That role had recently been linked to Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, Immortals), Scoot McNairy (Killing Them Softy, Monsters) and Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men First Class, Contraband). It's also confirmed Godzilla won't be the only monster in the film. We should expect at least new two monsters in the film. A big problem in the 1998 American Godzilla film besides the awful CGI they had to hide as much as possible. Was that the title character was the villain rather than an anti-hero which he's always been portrayed in the franchise. While he started out as a baddie Godzilla ended up becoming a necessary evil as he'd always battle whatever other monster threatened the population. Monster vs. monster battles are an important staple to the films.
"The film will feature more than one monster, confirming that two new monsters will also be wreaking havoc – this in addition to the big green guy. Warner Bros. made it clear that their interpretation of the material “follows the story of a solider” and is “way different” than the Toho Godzilla films."
