Since investing $760 million in Legendary Entertainment in January 2022, Solomon and his Apollo partner, Aaron Sobel, have been aggressively investing in new TV and movie projects for the mini-major studio, best known for such tentpole features as “Dune” and “Godzilla vs. Kong,” as well as evaluating a number of M&A opportunities.
