Legendary's MonsterVerse Series Brings on The Director of Wandavision

The MonsterVerse is set to hit the big screen with Adam Wingard returning to direct the sequel to Godzilla Vs. Kong, recently announcing that actor Dan Stevens would be playing the leading man. Also on the horizon however is Apple TV+'s untitled MonsterVerse television series, which has just announced that the director of Disney's Wandavision, Matt Shakman, is set to join the show bringing back Godzilla and the Titans as both director, of the first two episodes, and Executive Producer.      

Shakman is set to direct the first two episodes of this new kaiju-filled series, while also taking on the role of executive producer. For his work on Wandavision, the director received an Emmy nomination and has worked on a number of different series during his time in the industry, including the likes of It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia, Made Men, Game of Thrones, and The Boys. While details are still being revealed when it comes to the return of Godzilla and his fellow Titans, rumors are beginning to swirl that Wyatt Russell is being sought to be the leading man of the show, with additional rumors swirling that his famous father, Kurt Russel, might also have a role waiting for him. 

The official description for this upcoming series, according to Variety, reads as such:

"Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real, the Monsterverse series will explore one family's journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch."

Wanda's future following her latest appearance in the MCU and her fight against Stephen Strange is up in the air at this point, though considering how popular Elizabeth Olsen has become, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Scarlet Witch once again returned to the Marvel Cinematic Universe down the line.
