Warner Bros.’ Coyote vs Acme was a hybrid live-action and animated movie starring John Cena. It took over $70 million to complete the movie and was supposed to stream on Max. With James Gunn being its producer and also having some credit for the story, the movie was one of the most anticipated ones by many Looney Tunes fans.

Inspired by a New Yorker short story of 1990, it would have featured an Acme warehouse filled with all kinds of traps to attack the famous Roadrunner. Slated to be released this year in July, it was scrapped when Warner Bros. relaunched its global strategy.

While fans have been calling for WB to release Batgirl, earlier this year Peter Safran stated that the movie was not releasable and the character would one way or the other make its way into the DC mythos.
