WandaVision helmer Matt Shakman has been tapped to direct the first two episodes of Apple TV+s upcoming live-action Godzilla and the Titans series based on Legendary’s Monsterverse franchise, from Legendary Television.

The series is produced by Legendary Television and executive produced by co-creators Chris Black (Star Trek: Enterprise, Outcast), who serves as showrunner, and Matt Fraction (Hawkeye). The series is also executive produced by Safehouse Pictures’ Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell. Executive producing for Toho Co. Ltd. are Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita.
Shakman most recently helmed the Disney+/Marvel series WandaVision, which earned him an Emmy nomination for directing. He’s currently directing the Hulu limited series Immigrant and is set to direct the untitled next Star Trek film for Paramount and Bad Robot’s JJ Abrams.
