Moon Garden

After a little girl slips into a coma, she awakes in “a darkly surreal industrial dreamworld” in the trailer for Moon Garden, a fantasy film with stop-motion elements that looks like a more sentimental version of The City of Lost Children or Jan Svankmayer’s Alice.

Godzilla and the Titans

In a new interview with Collider, producer Matt Shakman revealed the Godzilla and the Titans TV series will only share “some overlap” with Legendary’s Godzilla and King Kong movies.

It is, it’s a part of everything, obviously, no matter what the scale of something. You always run out of money eventually, even if it’s Harry Potter or Star Wars, Star Trek, Godzilla, you run out of money. But it’s less about carrying out shots, although eventually, you have to do that, and more just about storytelling. You know, how much was Godzilla going to factor into the story, and he has a very important role to play, and how he factors into the series is a big part of it. So that was the bigger driver, and he’s not the only Titan that you’re gonna meet along the way. So there’s, yeah, there’s a VFX conversation constantly happening in that.

There is some overlap, though we were not heavily involved in talking about it with Adam Wingard and his team. Legendary is the studio for our show, as well as for the films, and so they sort of sit at the juncture there between the two, and they have a mythology department there which is wonderful. So they weigh in on how things might overlap, how certain creatures need to stay on one side or the other, and so there is a lot of conversation about it. But in terms of how closely the narratives overlap, it’s not as involved to say, an MCU kind of Disney+ film crossover. It’s less organized.


Harley Quinn

In conversation with Variety, Harley Quinn co-showrunner Patrick Schumacher revealed the show’s fourth season “will explore” more Poison Ivy than ever before under incoming executive producer Sarah Peters.

Sarah [Peters] writes Ivy like no one else, and Season 4 will explore Ivy more than we have. There’s her new role with the Legion of Doom. There’s something Justin and I would not have immediately gone toward – I’m trying not to spoil anything – but she did an amazing job. Obviously, the show has benefited greatly from so many different female perspectives amongst the writers, and Sarah has always been very key. She’s written some of the most memorable, enduring episodes. She’s the one who brought Catwoman into the fold, she’s the one who wrote the Season 2 finale where Harley and Ivy go driving off from Ivy’s intended wedding [with Kite Man], the bachelorette episode on Themyscira, our Season 3 premiere. Her grasp of Ivy and her ideas are things we certainly would never think of, and I’m really excited for people to get to see that.
