The upcoming Godzilla anime, the 30th Godzilla film to be produced by Toho Pictures, is set to air on Netflix. It will be available on the streaming service after it’s initial Japanese theater run. The anime is the latest Godzilla film to hit theaters after Gareth Edwards’ (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) version in 2014 and Shin Godzilla from Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi in 2016. The anime will be called simply Godzilla and released later this year. More information about the anime will be released at an event at AnimeJapan 2017 on March 26. The film will be streamed in over 190 countries when it hits Netflix.
Godzilla will be animated by Polygon Pictures, who did Knights of Sidonia. The director of that film, Kobun Shizuno, will partner up with AJIN: Demi-Human director Hiroyuki Shshita for the Godzilla anime. Gen Urobuchi, writer of Psycho-Pass, will take on the script.
There isn’t much known about the story, though teaser images like the one above have shown that it’s at least partly set in the jungle. Godzilla has never starred in an anime before, though he appeared for a moment in Crayon Shin Chan to help promote Shin Godzilla. He’s also appeared in two animated shows in the West. The voice actors for the film are Yuuki Kaji, Takahiro Sakurai, Mamoru Miyano, Junichi Suwabe, Kana Hanazawa and Tomokazu Sugita. The upcoming sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, will hit theaters in 2019 and stars Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga

ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Connected to Inhumans Series?!
(Courtesy of: www.screenrant.com)
When Marvel brought Nerd Christmas early in the summer of 2008 by teasing the rise of the Avengers in the tag at the end of Iron Man, even they didn’t fully envision the shared universe they were on the brink of creating. A few years later, The Avengers finally saw a number of their films and heroes join forces for an unprecedented blockbuster that finally proved Marvel and superhero movies were here to stay. Since then, the company has only reached new heights, while virtually every other studio taking steps to build their own shared universe.
Marvel have taken things a step further, spinning off the adventures of Agent Phil Coulson into ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Along with their group of Netflix shows, the TV side of Marvel is said to exist in the same universe as the movies. While it’s merely been alluded to on Netflix, S.H.I.E.L.D. has built entire episodes and seasons around the events of Marvel movies. Given this shared continuity, many have wondered how connected the upcoming Inhumans show will be to S.H.I.E.L.D. when it premieres on IMAX screens later this year. Not only will both show eventually share a network in ABC, but S.H.I.E.L.D. actually introduced the concept of the Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe some years back.
Since then, charatcers like Daisy “Quake” Johnson from the Marvel comics (played by Chloe Bennet on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) have even been altered to match their Inhuman heritage on TV. While we haven’t heard any official confirmation of the two ABC Marvel TV shows being intimately connected or sharing characters, a new batch of set photos has shown otherwise.
As Carlos states, that alien writing matches the carvings we saw all throughout season 2 of S.H.I.E.L.D. The mystery of the writing eventually led to the discovery of the Terrigen crystals that transformed Daisy and Raina (and sadly killed Tripp). What’s more, but the comics have used the writing for years within the font of the Inhumans comics, further connecting things. Hopefully, this will just be the first of many threads joining S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhumans, as the latter recently started shooting a few weeks back.
The beginning of production has also given us our first looks at the announced Inhumans cast in action. We’ve already seen Black Bolt and Lockjaw, and yesterday gave us our first look at Crystal in a very comics-accurate costume. We’ve also heard a rumor about Hawaii’s famous Diamond Head volcanic crater being used as a filming location, possibly to house the Inhuman city of Attilan. With filming continuing out in the open, we’re likely to get a lot more looks at the upcoming show in the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned.
Inhumans comes to IMAX theaters for two weeks starting Friday, September 1st, prior to its television debut on Tuesday, September 26th on ABC.
