The Godzilla Movie Site has posted an interesting piece of info. Apparently a rumor has been floating around since February that Toho (Godzill’s license holder) may require Legendary Pictures, which is producing the Godzilla 2014 film, to use actual suitmation in filming! Suitmation being the use of actual physical suits with actors in them (like Ultraman, Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, etc) rather than CGI.
This rumor hasn’t been confirmed by Legendary Pictures or the films’ director Gareth Edwards, but it would stand to reason that Toho would like to see suitmation in this film over the more generally used CGI. This keeping with the roots of the classic Godzilla franchise. The suit design attached to this article would certainly imply that Toho wants to see this happen.Godzilla Movie
