Following a recent batch of first-look promo stills featuring the show's main characters, Apple TV+ has unveiled the first teaser poster for its upcoming MonsterVerse series, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters.
Though Godzilla doesn't appear on the artwork himself, the potentially catastrophic threat of the legendary Kaiju looms large, as we see a shelter sign buried beneath a mound of rubble.
The streamer's caption, "there's more to uncover," may indicate that the first trailer is on the way, so keep an eye out for updates.
Legacy of Monsters is set after the events of 2014's Godzilla reboot, as San Francisco struggles to rebuild in the wake of the Titan's epic battle against the MUTOs. According to an updated synopsis from TV guide, the story "will focus on Cate, who survives the San Francisco showdown and travels to Japan to find her missing father. It is there she learns of a shocking betrayal, and Cate must team up with her half-brother and an American hacker to discover her family's ties with the mysterious organization known as Monarch."
The show stars Kurt Russell and his son Wyatt Russell (playing the same character across two different timelines) along with Anna Sawai, Kiersey Clemons, Mari Yamamoto, Ren Watabe, Anders Holm, Joe Tippett, and Elisa Lasowski.
Chris Black (Severance) and Matt Fraction (Hawkeye) developed the project, and the first two episodes were helmed by WandaVision and Fantastic Four director Matt Shakman.
Shakman recently confirmed that Big G will be joined by plenty of other well-known Titans in the small-screen spin-off, but didn't reveal exactly which creatures will feature. Whether the show will tie-in to the events of the upcoming Godzilla Vs. Kong sequel remains to be seen.

"Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real," reads the synopsis for the 10-episode series, "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters tracks two siblings following in their father’s footsteps to uncover their family’s connection to the secretive organization known as Monarch." "Clues lead them into the world of monsters and ultimately down the rabbit hole to Army officer Lee Shaw (played by Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell), taking place in the 1950s and half a century later where Monarch is threatened by what Shaw knows. The dramatic saga - spanning three generations - reveals buried secrets and the ways that epic, earth-shattering events can reverberate through our lives."
Though no official premiere date has been announced, the show is expected to start streaming this November.
