Deadline reports that Legendary Pictures have set their signs on Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson for the lead role in Godzilla. According to the site, the ball is now in his court and its entirely up to him as to whether or not he decides to accept. However, the British actor is said to be waiting on Frank Darabont's revised screenplay before making a final decision. The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit meanwhile claims that no offer has been made at this point, although the actor who will reprise the role of 'Kick-Ass' in this year's sequel (helmed by Jeff Wadlow) is said to be "interested".

Well, he can't be any worse in it than Broderick was in his film.

I can't see him being a soldier in a Godzilla movie,unless he's some kid

Not really soldier material but who knows maybe he can pull it off.

@fettastic or some people may have assumed he'd be performing the motion capture for the role.

Why are people pissed about a human lead? Do you guys honestly think that Godzila could hold a whole film by himself?

@Christuffer. Me too. But we're in the minority when it comes to liking it as an actual "Godzilla" movie.
