The details for their roles have been kept under wraps, but the news of their casting has been met with amazing response on social media
For the first time in over 40 years, iconic actor Kurt Russell will be making an appearance in a TV show thanks to the upcoming Monsterverse franchise. The veteran actor will be seen playing a pivotal role in the upcoming Godzilla vs Titans monster series, which will be his first TV appearance since 1977.
Russell has been one of the finest actors of this generation and has given several award-worthy performances in his career spanning over five decades. Interestingly, the actor went on to make his acting debut on TV in the 1963 series ‘Dennis the Menace’ and played supporting characters in several other shows as well. However, he is known for his roles in movies like ‘The Strongest Man in the World’, ‘Escape From New York’, ‘Silkwood’, and ‘The Hateful Eight’.
But the most amazing part of his return to the TV is that he will be sharing the screen with his son and actor Wyatt Russell. Yes, you heard it right. Kurt will be joined by his son Wyatt in the series, which will air on Apple TV+ and is a part of Legendary’s Monsterverse franchise. Wyatt gained prominence after he was cast as Dud in the hit TV series ‘Lodge 49’. However, he became a worldwide sensation after being cast as John Walker/US Agent in the blockbuster Disney+/Marvel series ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’. He can currently be seen in ‘Under the Banner of Heaven’ alongside Andrew Garfield and Sam Worthington.
Although the details of their roles have been kept under wraps, we know that the pair will be starring alongside the likes of Ren Watabe, Kiersey Clemons, Anna Sawai, Joe Trippett, and Elisa Lasowski. The series will follow a family’s journey following the battle between Godzilla and the Titans in San Francisco that made everyone believe that monsters are real. The family will try to unbury the secrets of the fight and lead them to the secret organization known as Monarch.
As soon as the news of Kurt and Wyatt Russell sharing the screen together surfaced online, social media went berserk and hailed the casting choices made by Apple TV+. One of the fans wrote, “I think a lot of people would tune in to watch Snake Plissken try to escape from Godzilla.” Another social media user wrote, “Ego and the Living Agent finally meet.” Another social media user tweeted, “That’s some great casting right there.” “Kurt Russell and his son in the Monsterverse? Uh, YES PLEASE,” another fan tweeted.
