Warner Bros. now handling distribution for Detective Pikachu movie

The Detective Pikachu movie was originally going to be distributed by Universal, but that deal has now been shifted over to Warner Bros. The new distribution plans see a renewed partnership between both Legendary and Warner Bros., who originally parted ways after an 8-year relationship. The May 10th release for Detective Pikachu is expected to stay the same.

This reminds me that Legendary's Kong: Skull Island was another movie that shifted over from Universal to Warner Bros. to set up a crossover with Godzilla, so does this mean that Detective Pikachu will make an appearance in Godzilla vs. Kong?

Or it could just be that Legendary and Warner Bros. work well together, who knows...

Word is that Legendary irked Universal by taking credit for namely the success of Jurassic World when all they did was provide financing and no creative input. Specifically, Legendary's CEO.
