Earlier today I put up some leaked photos of Godzilla’s new look in Toho’s upcoming Godzilla: Resurgence and, to be honest, threw some shade at my boy’s suit. It was cloaked in optimism, but it was shade all the same.
But now I know a bit more that can explain what’s going on with that suit. A source inside Toho has shared plot details that not only shine light on Godzilla’s look but should make fans super excited to see the film whenever it finally comes out in America (it hits Japan this summer).
So when we first see Godzilla in the film, he is going to be a burnt-out and scarred monster, which is what we see represented in these photos. But he won’t look like that the whole film. Like some of his foes before him, Godzilla will actually change as the film progresses. I’ve been told that by his third form, he should look like a much more standard Godzilla.
We still don’t know if Godzilla is going to fight other monsters or end up being a good guy. But I have heard that this new suit is way bigger than normal, almost twice the size of an average person, which is very exciting.
I imagine we should be getting some footage from the film in the coming months when Toho finally releases a full trailer. Perhaps we’ll get a look at Godzilla’s other forms then.
