Godzilla will be clashing with King Kong again for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire next year, but Legendary has other plans with their entire Monsterverse—specifically on TV.
Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is set to release on Apple TV+ this November, and we have a new trailer connecting all the events from previous Monsterverse films including Godzilla (2014) and Kong: Skull Island. Watch this:
The official description reads:
Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco, and the shocking revelation that monsters are real, “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” tracks two siblings following in their father’s footsteps to uncover their family’s connection to the secretive organization known as Monarch.
Clues lead them into the world of monsters and ultimately down the rabbit hole to Army Officer Lee Shaw (played by Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell), taking place in the 1950s and half a century later where Monarch is threatened by what Shaw knows.
Admittedly, I did think that Wyatt and Kurt Russell would be playing father and son in the series, but it does look like Wyatt is going to be going period for this show and is going to be playing the younger version of Kurt’s character.
We also see some faces from the films who have also been connected to the monsters in some way, like John Goodman who we met way back in Kong: Skull Island. It looks like he’s going to be one of the earlier figures at Monarch before they become an organization that makes it their business to know all about the titans that could be roaming the Earth.
I just hope the series has enough budget to give us some great giant monster scenes. Hopefully Godzilla doesn’t just show up and roar once in the finale.
Monarch: Legacy of Monsters premieres on Apple TV+ this coming Nov. 17.
