    Loved what Edwards did to the first movie, so I’m anxious to see how he portrays other Godzilla villains. He may actually turn Mothra in to a fierce foe.

      They’re walking on thin ice for sure with Mothra. That’s a ballsy choice and I love it, but picking a direction and a design will no doubt be difficult. Rodan wouldn’t be my first choice given then everyone’s gonna be flying around except Big G. If they remake Three Headed Monster that could be so cool. I just hope it’s not all shot at goddamn night and not darkened for the home release.
