Warner Bros. Previews Godzilla and Edge of Tomorrow at WonderCon 2014
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 04.20.2014



Warner Bros. previewed their upcoming summer slate at this year's WonderCon. SuperHeroHype has a recap of the panels for the new sci-fi action film, Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise, and the upcoming reboot of Godzilla, a co-production with Legendary Pictures.

Below are some highlights of the Edge of Tomorrow panel:

* Co-star Bill Paxton came out after the debut of an extended version of the most recent trailer.

* Paxton said got involved with the project because "[It looked like] ancient Rome meets Cecil B. DeMille, and it's got its DNA in 'Aliens.' I figured that was why WB called me up. They needed someone to say, 'Game over, man!'"

* Paxton met with Cruise when they were trying on mech-suits for the project on the studio lot in England. Paxton recalls Cruise saying, "Paxton, you been working out? This thing weighs 75 pounds!"

* Bill Paxton also commented on his recent arc as Jon Garrett on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "I was wondering when I was going to get my invitation to the Marvel party, and it finally came… Hail Hydra!"

* Regarding a possible role in the upcoming sequels of Avatar for James Cameron, Paxton said he's still waiting for his phone to ring, "Come on, Jim!" he laughed.

* Paxton also said he's developing two projects he would like to direct. The first is The Bottoms, based on a novel by Joe R. Landsdale, which he hopes to start this fall. He's also looking a screenplay-turned-graphic novel called Seven Holes for Air, which he also hopes to adapt for the big screen.

Below are some highlights for the Godzilla. Director Gareth Edwards was in attendance for the panel:

* The SXSW footage of the film was shown again.

* Edwards talked about how everyone had different ideas on how Godzilla should look in the film. He also expressed how important it was for Godzilla's silhouette to be so recognizable, so the production made a black 3D model that was adjusted until the silhouette came first. Edwards said, "It's not as easy as a rubix cube. because you can't just pull off the stickers."

* Edwards talked about how the process of the making the film taught him more about Godzilla than he ever thought he could've ever learned, saying, "You don't really create anything. You just discover it."

* On creating a new monster for Godzilla to face in the film, Edwards said, "It's like trying to find the last car parking space in Disneyland…Whatever it is, it's very much related to the life cycle of Godzilla."

* Edwards talked about the fear of Godzilla exists within all humans on a level of man versus nature. He talked about how thousands of years ago, people were scared of animals such as tigers, bears, and wolves, so cities were built to keep them away. Godzilla represents a type of fear and nightmare fulfillment that monsters could return and tear down our cities.

* A fan asked Edwards if he would rather see Godzilla face Bryan Cranston as Walter White from Breaking Bad or Cranston as Hal from Malcom in the Middle. Edwards then shared an anecdote about how he thought the Hal character in Malcom in the Middle was meant to be a closeted gay man. He then later mentioned it in passing to Cranston personally, and Cranston had no idea what he was talking about.

* Before he left the stage, Edwards said, "You should never thank me for doing this film. It was a completely selfless act. I would have done it whether you guys see it or not!"
