The Verge recently had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Godzilla (2014) director Gareth Edwards about creating the design for the new Godzilla as well as the process with which they used to create the new Monsters which Godzilla will fight in the new film! Edwards goes into a little detail about the creation process which he and the team at Weta Workshop in New Zealand worked on to come up with the final designs for both Godzilla and the MUTO, mentioning inspiration from a variety of classic movie monsters ranging from King Kong to H.R Giger's Alien. Gareth also talks briefly about the possibility of a Godzilla sequel. Watch the entire interview below:

Wow, this is a great interview!  I knew WETA was involved somehow, but it looks like their involvement is pretty extensive!  They have created some of the most incredible and beautiful creatures of the modern era, and thinking about what they have done with Godzilla gives me goosebumps!  Every time Gareth Edwards opens his mouth, my confidance in this film grows.  We very well could be looking at the next visionary director/storyteller/creator of this generation.  Its incredible thinking of what this man is capable of, with this film and beyond, and I truly trust him with Godzilla's legacy.  And you heard the man... its up to us to see that a sequel is made.  And I'm sure there isn't anyone on this site that needs to be asked twice to see this movie!

Thank you for sharing this with us all! :D

Sorry to be that guy but there's a slight correction needed in the intro paragraph.  Weta WORKSHOP not Weta Digital helped out with the creation. Plus they were in NEW ZEALAND while the director was in the UK. 

All this info is in the actual interview.  Just an idea but perhaps you better listen to your own interviews before you write up the introductions.  It might help you look like you know what you're talking about.

I never would have thought that H.R. Giger's Alien would be a design insirartion for a Godzilla movie. I find that awesome.

They're hintng that a dog will die in one of the scenes, hence why they said it would make people sad.

In Gareth we trust as they say !!

Correction: I had mis-formatted "Weta Workshop's" name in the article, it has now been updated with the correct format.

This is so inspiring to hear. I believe that Gareth was and is the best man for this film. I truly think he is gonna make kaiju history with this movie. I smell a trilogy.
