Did You Know?
This film is to release in 2014, Godzilla's 60th anniversary.
Godzilla's appearance shows him covered in keloid scars. This feature was taken from the original Godzilla (1954), who was heavily scarred to evoke the gruesome marks born by the survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings; this enhances the concept of Godzilla as a monster created by nuclear weapons.
Guillermo del Toro was seriously considered to direct. However, he was busy with Pacific Rim.
