Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming
 
I cannot find the original thread....if the mods can find it and want to merge this with that thread that would be cool.

Anyway...here is the new face of Godzilla!! Notice he has gills!!

I quite like that. It stays true to the original form while having its own unique flair.

And he has a rear-view mirror now, apparently...

Looks like he also that that "knot" one sees upon the jaws of iguanas. (I have no idea what that thing is called, sorry.) But like the gills, it works. It gives him "character" without being distracting.

Years from now, when someone posts an image of Goji, we'll know instantly if he's the Legendary Pictures version.

Sincerely,

Bill

Now all we need is the trailer for this movie! There is a rumor, and only a rumor, that there will be a trailer attached to the next Hobbit movie.

Fits nicely into lineage :)

Shouldn't Godzilla have a blowhole rather than gills? :D

I'd say they're about equally taxonomically unlikely in an alleged dinosaur.

Well, I was making a slight nod to his name more than anything.

Ah, the "gorilla-whale" etymology. I wondered if that might've been what you were going for, but it's obscure enough that I wasn't sure.

On the off chance that those things on his neck are actually gills, then maybe they have another use besides just allowing him to breathe underwater; could they be a part of a system to do with his radioactive breath, like cooling vents for instance?

I always wondered why Godzilla spends most of his time underwater when he's generally considered to be a mutated from a land based dinosaur; does he dwell in the sea for biological reasons to do with his radioactive nature?

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming
 
Maybe he just likes to swim. ;)

Bit more seriously, I suspect the sea provides a more readily attainable food source, and in the quantity he needs.

Yeah, that's very weak "fridge logic".

H3ll, I don't know, but he sure looks intimidating rising from the sea to attack. Plus, it's about the only way he can reach Japan unless he flew (like Rodan, Mothra or Ghidrah) or burrowed (like Baragon).

Sincerely,

Bill
