At Comic-Con 2012, director Gareth Edwards joined the Godzilla panel, where it was announced that the franchise would be rebooted, and was later confirmed for release in May 2014. The film has been in discussion since 2007 after Legendary had acquired the rights to the character. Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as a soldier, with Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn,and Bryan Cranston also part of the crew. As it stands, unfortunately, very little else is known about the movie, as even the Comic-Con 2012 teaser has not been made available by Warner Bros. Pictures, with even the public-filmed footage of the teaser having been removed. A few photos and clips have been made available of the production of the film.
