Here are the screencaps to David’s return to his role of Admiral William Stenz in the Legendary films Kaiju series GODZILLA KING OF THE MONSTERS. David wasn’t in many scenes this time around. I was hoping he would be, but alas. Enjoy.
David was in the Gareth Edwards 2014 American-made GODZILLA film starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Elizabeth Olsen. He played the part of Admiral William Stenz, part of the constantly present military side that in the old Toho films trying to take out the big green titular anti-hero. Having been a big fan of the original Showa/Heisei/Millennium series, I was a bit doubtful as to whether this film was worthy of the name. I did like the 1998 Matthew Broderick film (though I know a lot of people don’t like it) but the one thing about this film that made it reasonable was David’s always present gravitas. I wasn’t that thrilled by the amount of screen time Godzilla didn’t have. It seemed Edwards and Legendary Pictures didn’t want us to get a good look at the big guy, and only utilized him in almost a sixteenth of the film considering the over three quarters the original Toho Series Godzilla often received. I know it’s a little sacrosanct to state something negative on a fansite, but again having been a fan of the original series since my first film back in 1969, I feel I have the amount of gravitas of my own to state that. However, considering the amount of screen time David didn’t have, I have to say that he brought his A-Game as usual.
