So if you’ve been paying attention to the viral website in promotion of Legendary Pictures’ new take on Godzilla, you noticed each image contains letters in the color red. We finally know what it spells, and it should be very familiar to any G-Fan worth his or her salt.
Never mind Rodan, King Ghodiorah, Mecha-Godzilla, Mothra, Destroyah, or even King Kong. Godzilla’s most dangerous foe was also the smallest in stature named Daisuke Serizawa-hakase (played in the original Gojira (1954) by famed actor Akihiko Hirata. If you recall, Serizawa created a weapon called “The Oxygen Destroyer,” and when Big-G came into contact with it, he was reduced to mere bones. So now that we know the viral images spell out SERIZAWA, what exactly does that mean, if anything, for Godzilla‘s appearance at Comic-Con? Stay tuned!
