Apple plans Godzilla and MonsterVerse TV show | TV shows

Beyond the creatures’ Japanese cinematic heritage, we’ve grown accustomed to seeing Godzilla and his hulking pals through Legendary and Warner Bros. MonsterVerse Movies. Legendary now has big plans for the small screen, with an untitled MonsterVerse livestream in the works on Apple TV+.

Star Trek: Enterprise and Banned veteran Chris Black teams up with Hawkeye* comic book writer Matt Fraction for the new show, which will follow the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that razed San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real. The series explores a family’s journey to uncover their buried secrets and a legacy that ties them to the secret organization known as Monarch.

It all sounds like a direct spin-off from the history of the movies, which expanded the mythology of monsters to include King Kong and certain creatures created just for those movies, but Apple describes it as an original series. The company certainly seems to be setting itself up as a house of large-scale sci-fi visions – the new show joins the likes of Foundation, Invasion and adaptation of Hugh Howey Wool novels.

And it’s not the monster monster-fueled show that’s heading to screens, because Netflix has an animated adventure series. Skull Island, based on Kong’s 2017 solo release, On the Way.
