There's a lot of intrigue surrounding the untitled MonsterVerse series coming to Apple TV+, and we now have a new set video courtesy of 7News Brisbane (via SFFGazette.com). Filmed on Australia's Gold Coast in Queensland, it shows a local beach that's been transformed into Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
The location is evident from the Brazilian flags, police vehicles, and military on hand. Extras, meanwhile, can be seen enjoying a day by the beach before running from a kaiju that seemingly emerges from the nearby ocean.
Of course, no matter how many photos and videos we see from the set of this series, those monsters won't be revealed until much further down the line. Why? Well, they're obviously brought to life solely with visual effects, so expect to see a lot of actors and extras react to kaiju that aren't there!
Still, this is clearly going to be a globe-trotting series, and we're excited to see how it expands this MonsterVerse in the wake of Godzilla: King of the Monsters (and before that all-out war in Godzilla vs. Kong). This is a TV show, of course, and on the big screen, the next chapter in the franchise, believed to be Son of Kong, is heading our way on March 15, 2024.
The untitled project will take place in the aftermath of the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that levelled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real, with the focus put on one family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.
Legendary Television is producing this MonsterVerse TV series that was co-created by Chris Black (Star Trek: Enterprise) and Matt Fraction (Hawkeye), with the former serving as showrunner. WandaVision's Matt Shakman will direct the first two episodes and serve as an executive producer.
