Apple TV+ gets the King of the Monsters

After facing King Kong, Godzilla joins the Apple TV+ platform. The platform will produce a series dedicated to the character

godzilla vs kong is far from having seduced the critics and the spectators. Adam Wingard’s film, which brought together the two legendary monsters on screen, had not benefited from a release on the big screen internationally, preferring to be offered on VOD in France. However, Warner Bros is not going to say goodbye to him yet and is counting on Apple TV+ to extend the trip.

The platform, which mainly relies on original productions, will make some departures from its strategy by producing a spin-off series. “After the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and revealed the existence of these monsters to the world, the series explores a family’s journey to uncover their buried secrets and a legacy connecting them to the organization secret known as Monarch”.

A plot that should therefore distance itself from the last opus, and bring a human dimension to this clash of the titans. Esurprisingly, the connection to Warner Bros. Monsterverse is pretty obvious. An unexpected collaboration, as HBO Max continues to want to expand its offer and relies on its most popular cinema productions to do so. Obviously, it is not with the license that she will do it.

The screenwriter of Hawkeye in production

The project will be led by Chris Black and Matt Fraction. Recently, the latter worked on the series Hawkeye for Disney+. Here, he is promoted to the rank of showrunner and will therefore have the heavy task of continuing the adventures of Godzilla after the events of Garth Edwards’ film released in 2014. We do not yet know who will be directing the episodes of the first season. , or even when it lands on our screens.

Also a series on Netflix

Far from Warner Bros and its platform, Netflix is ​​also developing a project related to the Monsterverse mythology. After his feature film Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, released in 2017, the platform is now working on a series dedicated to King Kong. It should land in the coming months, so we are not ready to say goodbye to these colossi. It remains to be seen how the Apple TV+ series will compare with these different productions, and whether Warner Bros will continue to expand its Monsterverse on the big screen at the same time.
