Godzilla to Stream Official Pinball Tournament Live
The king of the monsters is set to rampage his way onto both the small and silver screens in the future. Godzilla will return in the upcoming sequel to Legendary's Godzilla Vs. Kong, along with the yet titled Apple TV+ series that will see Wyatt and Kurt Russel as the leading men. This week, Godzilla is set to be a part of a unique pinball tournament sponsored by Toho, with the tournament being streamed live for kaiju fans to check out for themselves.
The sequel to Godzilla Vs. Kong has already started filming, with the movie set to bring back Adam Wingard as the director and introduce a new leading man in Dan Stevens, who you might know from projects such as Legion, Beauty and the Beast, and The Guest to name a few. On the television front, the untitled MonsterVerse series that will be landing on Apple's streaming service has cast its leading men in the father/son acting team of Kurt and Wyatt Russel. While there are still many unknowns when it comes to these two projects that return to Legendary's MonsterVerse, kaiju fans are looking to eat well in the future.
The Official Godzilla Twitter Account shared the details of the upcoming Pinball Tournament, featuring Kaiju-themed machines that will be free to watch on Youtube later this week:

The creative manga for Toho International, Inc., Chris Mowry, went into detail when it comes to the live event that will be hosted on Toho's Official Youtube Channel on Wednesday, August 10th of this week:
"Few things go together as well as Godzilla and Pinball," said Chris Mowry, Creative Manager at Toho International, Inc. "We're excited to partner with Stern for this thrilling competition, and to showcase the beautiful Godzilla pinball machine that was released late last year. Both Stern and Godzilla fans should be sure to tune in!"
Currently, plans for a new project in Japan's Godzilla universe, which last gave us Shin Godzilla, are anyone's guess, though the lizard king has been featured in promotional material for the "Shin Hero Universe", which might just hint at the crossover to end all crossovers in the future.
Will you be checking out this pinball tournament later this week with a Godzilla twist? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of kaiju.
