Godzilla is getting a live-action TV series. Apple reveals its ambitious plans for the so-called “Monsterverse”.
The dismal box office performance of Godzilla: King of the Monsters was only a gross of 386 million dollars for a film with a budget of more than 200 million. This led to speculation that Legendary Pictures would conclude the franchise with Godzilla vs. Kong., the film that made the two mythological beasts of cinema fight. However, this premiere exceeded all box office forecasts even in a pandemic. So it seems that we are going to have a continuation, but on another platform and in the hands of Apple TV.
As confirmed by the study, the so-called Big and the rest of the monsters of the “Monsterverse” will share the small screen in a “live action” television series. It will be produced by Legendary Television and will be executive produced by Chris Black (Star Trek Enterprise, Outcast). Also, the writer of the series will be the famous comic book writer Matt Fraction. Both Fraction and Black will be the co-creators of the project and showrunners of it.
