Following the announcement of the sequel to Godzilla Vs. Kong will arrive in 2024, and the kaiju universe created by Legendary Entertainment has also revealed five new actors who will be joining the live TV series that will see the arrival of Godzilla and many of his other titans on Apple TV+. With rumors swirling around Wyatt Russell The Hawk and the Winter Soldier Fame will top the series, it certainly looks as though the lead actor will have some company when the series makes landfall.
To start, Anna Sawai will play Kate, described by Deadline as “a former school teacher and G-Day survivor who travels to Japan to settle family affairs but instead uncovers a family secret. Tired of running away from her problems, determined to find answers.”
Joining Sawai, Rin Watabe, will play Kintaro, “a smart, creative and inquisitive young man who has yet to find his way. He will set out on a quest to learn more about his esteemed but mysterious father and discover himself talent in the process.”
Deadline also confirmed that Kiersey Clemons will play May, “a former American girl with a sinister exterior that she uses to protect herself as well as others. Whether it’s to crack a code or find a loophole, she’s always three steps ahead of everyone around her.”
Actor Joe Tibbett will play Tim, “An office drone dreams of a secret agent adventure. His overconfidence gets him in trouble in the field, but he’s determined not to let his organization down.”
Finally, Deadline confirmed that Elisa Lasowski will play Duvall, “an expert worker with unwavering confidence in herself and her skills. She also has the sense of humor she uses to guide her less field-oriented colleague.”
Deadline describes the upcoming MonsterVerse series that is set to bring Godzilla and a number of other fellow kaiju from the mythical universe as such:
“The Monsterverse series follows the thunderclap battle between Godzilla and Titans that devastated San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real. It will explore one family’s journey to uncover their buried secrets and a legacy that connects them to the secret organization known as the Monarch.”
