The first clear look at the new Godzilla has appeared online

Sep. 11, 2013by: Alex Maidy

We finally have a look at GODZILLA from Gareth Edward's new film hitting next Summer and it is surely going to make fans happy. Legendary has kept the redesign under tight wrap for the past two years with the teasers and images revealed at the San Diego Comic Con still not available to the general public. Even the leaked footage from the GODZILLA Experience was debunked by the producers as not being an accurate image of the final monster design.

Well, today we have our first look at the big guy from the Sao Paolo Licensing Expo in Brazil. The image has apparently been confirmed and taken down by the original poster, but Bleeding Cool still have a copy of it up and you can see it below.

GODZILLA fans have been waiting for a proper English-language film with the Japanese beast for decades. The lackluster Roland Emmerich version left fans with a bad taste in their mouth which Gareth Edwards is hopefully fixing with his big budget attempt. If this is truly the final design, it is a nice update and modernization of the traditional look of GODZILLA while still making him seem realistic.

GODZILLA starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe will be in theaters on May 16th, 2014.

Okay they got the look right.....

Now here's hoping that Edwards figured out that the thing that makes him Godzilla is the fact that he can't be harmed by conventional weapons. He has to figure out how to explain that in a way that makes sense to the audience so the monster is a real and desperate threat to humanity. If he's just a big lizard that can be taken out by a couple of missiles, then the movie is nothing more than Jurassic Park with a really tall T-Rex.

They're also going to have to a "villain" who is even a

They're also going to have to a "villain" who is even a greater threat to humanity (i.e. a monster who actually thrives on killing people instead of Godzilla, who merely does it unintentionally when attacked). If he combines those two things with great effects and a passable story, it will be a huge hit.

Looks perfect. Looks like they embraced Godzilla's look without letting egos getting in the way of design.

Also, Godzilla here looks kind of like a cross between a Komodo Dragon and a Rottweiler. Nice.

If The Lizard had looked more like this, nobody would have had a problem with Amazing Spider-Man.

THE QUESTION IS...

Will we EVER get the long desired PACIFIC RIM - GODZILLA crossover? It HAS to happen, doesn't it?

yes it really honestly does because that'll be the greatest thing put to film EVER. I just wanta see a huge mash up of Rodan, G-man, megazilla, three headed monster, gamera, all in one movie with del torro monsters as well. And I'll seriously die a happy geeky man.

Okay, so that looks fairly authentic. I'm really looking forward to this; the news that he'll be fighting at least one or two monsters instead of just going up against the military is already very promising.

Looks like they didn't go too crazy with messing with the iconic design, which is good to me. I'm just dying to see him in motion!

Nice design. Simple homage to the original, unlike that damn Popeye/Iguana hybrid from 98 . . .

Looks good

Although it also looks like they caught Godzilla as he was quoting Jack Nicholson's Joker: "This town needs an enema!"

I'm very excited for this movie. Hell, I was excited simply by the casting of Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, and Ken Watanabe, but now the actual Godzilla design looks great.

I think he's talking about the motorcycle rearview mirror in the picture for no reason. I didn't notice the lens flair.

If he's going to be upright and waddling like a man in a suit the way he did in the ComicCon video, then I have no interest in this pointless rehash. If you want Godzilla upright and waddling like a man in a suit, then just fucking MAKE him a man in a fucking suit. Why waste millions of dollars trying to replicate that shit in CGI? Fucking senseless. It seems like all of my favorite franchises have been going backwards. Halo, Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Riddick, and now Godzilla.
