Yes, Galactica will enter the fashion world thanks to the success of Marvel Studios.
“Regarding the situation with Sam and the series, I can’t say much about that other than that there is a synergy between the two initiatives and the constant communication between us,” he said. “We got even closer and had a great time together and there will be, for lack of a better phrase, a very overused shared world,” Kinberg added.
At the moment, there are no details on what story the two initiatives will take up, or how they will be linked, but Kinberg made it clear that the film has already completed a second draft of the script and that they are looking for a director. In this sense, at best, filming could begin in 2023.
