Mari Yamamoto Joins Legendary's Untitled Monsterverse Series ...

According to Deadline, Mari Yamamoto, who previously starred in Pachinko, has joined Legendary's Monsterverse and will play in the franchise's untitled television spinoff for Apple TV+ in an undisclosed role.

Kurt Russel (The Hatful Eight), Wyatt Russell, who played John Walker in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Elisa Lasowski (Somer's Town) have been announced as actors in the series, while Anna Sawai, who recently played in F9, will also play in the series with Ren Watabe (461 Days of Bento), Kiersey Clemons (Dope), and Joe Tippett (Mare of Easttown).

While the specifics of the show remain a mystery, the untitled series will take place after the events of Godzilla's battle in San Francisco and focuses on a family's journey to uncover hidden secrets about the monsters and their connection to Monarch, a secret organization that studies and hunts the Titans.

The Monsterverse began in 2014 with the release of Godzilla, which served as a reboot of the franchise. Due to its positive reception, the Monsterverse expanded with the release of a solo King Kong film set in the same universe in 2021, which was met with mixed reviews, but the Monsterverse resurrected in 2021 when the two titular titans faced off in their ultimate confrontation.

The franchise's momentum isn't sabotaging as another film is in development and will be released on March 15, 2024. The world of the titans continues to expand as fans speculate which creatures, both old and new, will return in the near future.

The untitled Monsterverse series has no set release date. Check out the official trailer for Godzilla vs Kong below:
