Don't know what to make of this, I'm curious if this is currently in-production and will be released later this year, ala the AoT sequels.

Apparently the tweet saying it was an upcoming film was a prank, the cross-promotional collab is real: Godzilla vs. Eva merchandise and such celebrating Anno's involvement and promoting Godzilla Resurgence.

I certainly wouldn't have a problem with something like an animated short: Eva's animation is gorgeous and cool looking, and seeing Godzilla in there would have been awesome eye-candy if anything. Now, I don't think a feature would make much sense.

Still, it seems there'll be some cool ephemera out of the deal.

I don't see a single source proving that Toho refuted it. The announcement is still on Twitter.

According to August Ragone, its just a cross promotion since Ano was the director of Evangellion. There is no Godzilla vs Evangellion movie/anime/game etc in the works.

August is lying because he's probably cooking up an "exclusive" article as we speak.

It is certainly an epic looking image. Has the artist been identified?

... and is this image based on the still only partially revealed new Godzilla design, or is it just the artist's conception of Godzilla? The face only vaguely favors the poster image.

The Godzilla fandom has relatively few memes, but I'll be disappointed if this line doesn't become one. Once you start substituting anything else for "Godzilla," the jokes write themselves.

They could, but you shouldn't expect it is what I'm saying.
