Legendary and Warner Bros.’ MonsterVerse is ever expanding

Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong is currently running concurrently with Apple TV+’s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters — the first live-action series in Legendary Pictures‘ MonsterVerse. A collaboration with Warner Bros. (which also owns DC), the MonsterVerse began in 2014 with director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla. The film spawned a number of big-screen follow-ups — including Kong: Skull Island (2017), Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), and Godzilla vs. Kong (2021).

Up next for the MonsterVerse is Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, which hits theaters on April 12, 2024. Directed by Adam Wingard, the Godzilla vs. Kong sequel stars Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Dan Stevens, Kaylee Hottle, and more.
