Elizabeth Olsen Says GODZILLA Reboot Will be Dark

Elizabeth Olsen, known for her roles in the controversial "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and the thriller "Silent House", has confirmed her involvement in the "Godzilla" reboot. The film is being helmed by Gareth Edwards, and is also said to star Bryan Cranston and Aaron Johnson, though that has not been officially confirmed yet.

On the tone of the film, Olsen states, "It's definitely not lighthearted. It's kind of going back to its roots of the original Japanese film." Taking a break from the spoofy take on "Godzilla", sounds like just what the Doctor ordered.

The original 1954 Japanese version was directed by Ishirô Honda and the Godzilla character (originally Gojira) was said to serve as a metaphor for nuclear weapons. Despite the campy and almost comical nature that the previous sequel and reboots encompassd, the original vision was more somber and dark, so it will be nice to see Edwards try to emulate that.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
