Legendary Pictures posted via their Godzilla (2014) Facebook page a photo of kaiju-eiga legend Akira Takarada on set with Gareth Edwards, teasing a possible cameo in the upcoming Godzilla reboot.

Takarada has become an icon to kaiju-eiga fans so this new will no doubt delight the fan base.

Filming on Godzilla began last week in Nanaimo, British Columbia. The production lasted less than 24 hours before the first images started surfacing online. Director Gareth Edwards has said that this Godzilla reboot will take the King of the Monsters back to his dark routes. »
