Now, there has been suggestions that they may go the CGI route for the monster. Personally, I hope they stick with the man-in-suit style, that is how it began and that is how it should be. I would not be against maybe some CG touch ups to smooth stuff out or enhance what is there, but I think it still needs to be pretty evident that there is a suit actor.
Toho has even brought together a Godzi-Con of executives and producers to work on leveraging the brand. This tells me that this is more than a one off and a new series is the intention. As it should. Still, I am curious to see where it goes as this is not being done to stomp on a lame Hollywood version like Godzilla 2000 was in the wake of the disastrous Roland Emmerich picture, time will tell how they co-exist. However you want to look at it, more Godzilla is a good thing.
