Godzilla and the Titans Director Teases “New and Old” Kaiju for Apple TV+ Series

With those from Marvel WandaVision already under his belt and the imminent Fantastic Four reboot set to be his first movie in over a decade, director Matt Shakman is leading the life as far as genre nerds are concerned. One of his next projects will also kick things up a notch, as the director has helmed several episodes of the legendary TV series. Godzilla and the Titans. In conversation with ComicBook.com about its upcoming Apple TV+ series The consultant, we asked Shakman if he’d like to work on the series, set in the MonsterVerse movie franchise, and if there was a specific monster he’d like to work with. Turns out this was a dream come true for Shakman.

“Well, Godzilla first of all, you know, I still have my old Toho Godzilla toy1 with the arm that shoots off, the little tongue that pops out when you press the back of his head, from when I was a kid I used to watch those movies with my dad and I absolutely love it And so just the chance to film scenes where hundreds of people run down the street trying to escape from Godzilla I mean that definitely has to be “Being ticked off the bucket list. That’s pretty awesome. So it was fun and, you know, we were making a lot of cool titans and monsters, some new, some old. So it’s fun. I’m excited.”

New and old is certainly an interesting element for Shakman to tease, as the only kaiju confirmed is Godzilla himself. Legendary’s feature films have used older Toho monsters like MechGodzilla, King Ghidorah, Mothra, and Rodan, while also inventing totally new kaiju/titans, including the MUTO and others. There are still plenty of classic monsters from the Godizlla franchise that haven’t been reinvented for the MonsterVerse series, including fan favorites like Gigan, Anguirus, and Destroyah. Will any of them appear on the show? We can’t say it, but New Titans is something every fan can get behind.

Matt Fraction and Chris Black executive produce Godzilla and the Titans, who serve as co-showrunners for the series. The series’ official description reads: “After the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that razed San Francisco to the ground and the shocking new reality that monsters are real, the untitled series will explore a family’s journey to the discovering buried secrets and a legacy. linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.”

Confirmed cast members for Godzilla and the Titans include father-son duo Wyatt and Kurt Russell, plus Kiersey Clemons, Anna Sawai, Ren Watabe, Mari Yamamoto and more.
