Alright, tumblr, are you ready for some more pre-trailer Godzilla speculation? I knew you were!
Based on the extremely limited amount of information we have about the human characters, I think they’re meant to parallel the cast of the first Godzilla movie.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Ford) and Akira Takarada (Ogata) - “Leading men” and men of action besides; Ogata was a sailor and Ford is a soldier. And I swear, if this theory turns out to be true and the two meet on-camera…
Elizabeth Olsen (Ellie) and Momoko Kochi (Emiko) - Romantic partner of Ford / Ogata; both work as nurses.
Bryan Cranston (Joe) and Takashi Shimura (Dr. Yamane) - Father of Ellie / Emiko; scientists who are at the forefront of this whole Godzilla business.
So the question remains… if I’m right about this, who’s going to be Dr. Serizawa?
