Director Gareth Edwards Discusses Godzilla's Big Secret - IGN

Director Gareth Edwards compares Godzilla to a Samurai, cites Close Encounters as an influence, and discusses the film’s big secret.

IGN: So is Godzilla a good guy or a bad guy?

Edwards: I’d say he’s an anti-hero. You get into these conversations – especially with the visual effects guys. ‘What’s his character like?’ The great question people ask is ‘If he was a person, what kind of person would he be?’ And I feel like if he was a human character, he’d probably be like one of the Last Samurai. Or like a Ronin. He’s kind of like a noble, ancient warrior – the rest of his kind is long gone, and he’s happy to just keep to himself. And reluctantly only comes up when he has to correct something that’s wrong with the world. That was the character we were going for. And in the designing of his face, through trial and error and different shapes, you end up arriving at… we looked at animals like bears and dogs and crocodiles. And the one that’s probably the least likely but that we used a lot is the bird of prey. There’s something about his eyes, eye sockets and cheekbones, and then the idea of having the brow very close to the nose – that has this very noble character to it. Eagles seem very noble. They’re not any more noble than any other animal, but we look at them and think they are very thoughtful and internal and spiritual creatures. We wanted him to have that feeling and so we stole a lot from birds of prey.
