In March 2010, Legendary formally announced the project after it had acquired the rights to make the film from Toho, with a tentative release date of 2012. The project is to be co-produced with Warner Bros. Pictures, who will co-finance it (Sony's TriStar Pictures will not be involved because their rights expired in 2003). Warner's producers Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes franchise) and Roy Lee joined Brian Rogers and executive producers Banno, Okuhira, and Doug Davison with Legendary's Thomas Tull (The Dark Knight Rises) and Jon Jashni to begin production on Godzilla. Legendary said their film would not be a sequel to TriStar's 1998 Roland Emmerich directed Godzilla. Legendary first promoted the film at the San Diego Comic-Con International fan convention in July 2010. Legendary commissioned a new conceptual artwork of Godzilla, consistent with the Japanese design of the monster. The artwork was used in an augmented reality display produced by Talking Dog Studios; every visitor to the convention was given a T-shirt illustrated with the concept art. When viewed by a web-cam at the Legendary Pictures booth, the image on-screen would spout radioactive breath and the distinctive Godzilla roar could be heard. See more

We knew the world would not be the same. A few people cried; most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture the "Bhagavad Gita": Vishnu takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
