    A while back, I was reading news about some films based on comic book/cartoon franchises that were supposed to come out this year, but no news has been heard about them since. For starters, the CGI Gatchaman film from Imagi Animation Studios (TMNT, Astro Boy):

    The last I heard was that it was cancelled due to Imagi's financial problems. Now, there is also the addition of Space Pirate Captain Harlock, which was being animated by Marza Animation Planet (which was once owned by the same company that had owned High Moon Studios for a short time, Sega Sammy):

    And also, Gaiking:

    All were slated for a 2012 release, but will most likely not see the light of day......at least for now.

    I can't think of any other film that was supposed to be released this year, but there was this one film called "FoodFight" that was supposed to be released in 2008. It had a lot of big name stars (and brands).

    Apparently it was only available at Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company about a year ago. Wish I owned a copy.

    I believe the studio doing Gatchaman folded and closed. Superman just got pushed back a year. Not sure about Harlock.

    From what I understand, they had to close their U.S. subsidiaries in order to finish the film, but then cancelled it altogether.

    The Wolverine was supposed to come out this year, but many things caused the production to be delayed. They now have it slated for a 2013 release.

    The new Star Trek sequel was originally supposed to come out in 2012 as well and has been pushed back to 2013.
