Cancelled sequels that you were looking forward to?

What planned sequels, which were eventually cancelled, were you looking forward to?

Not a theatrical movie, but the sequel to Walker Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire was cancelled even though it ended on a huge cliffhanger. This was the big reunion movie 4 years after the show ended. The ratings weren't great because live sports pushed it back and CBS cancelled the Sunday TV movie of the week. Chuck Norris had wanted to make a new Walker tv movie every year.

Also Delta Force 3 starring Norris was also cancelled because Norris pulled out after some stuntman was killed filming Delta Force 2. 3 was later re-developed as a low budget DTV movie with Norris' son Mike.

And yes I was looking forward to both.

Mad Max Fury Road (with Mel Gibson).

Yes, I know they are finally making it now, but it's just not the same.

I've always been a fan of Terminator: Salvation and would have been curious to see how the sequels would have played out (it was originally supposed to be the start of a trilogy). Also as much as I hate Batman Returns I'd have been curious as to how Burton's next Batman film would have been.

Really wanted to see Singer's sequel to SUPERMAN RETURNS. I was sorry to hear that the whole thing was being rebooted, and even sorrier to see the results which became MAN OF STEEL.

I wouldn't have minded seeing another Raimi SPIDER-MAN, especially given all the life-effecting events of SPIDER-MAN 3.

Spiderman 4 from what I understand got canceled because of budget and story problems.

Off the top of my head:

-Batman Triumphant: Yes Batman and Robin was an abomination but I'm still curious what Schumachers serious movie for Bat fans would have been like.

-Green Lantern 2: Again the first sucked but I'm curious what direction the sequel would have taken.

-The third Timothy Dalton Bond: I think Dalton was really underrated as 007.

-True Lies 2: Loved the first one and was looking forward to the sequel until Cameron cancelled it after 9/11.

Gladiator 2, because Nick Cave's script was just so batshit nuts.

Master and Commander 2, because I don't want to live in a world in which there are four Pirates of the Caribbean movies and only one Master and Commander.

John Carter 2, because if they're going to make Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 and Avatar 4, then why the hell not.

Ghostbusters 3, not because I want to see it, but because I want the internet to collectively shut the fuck up about this movie already.

Willis O'Brien was working on something called KING KONG VS. FRANKENSTEIN at some point in his career. Now I can't say I was looking forward to it, because it was either before I was born or when I was a little kid, nor was it ever actually announced for production, but still...it would've been awesome.

Me and Rob Zombie were likely the only two people looking forward to a Halloween 3.

A lot of concept art for King Kong vs. Frankenstein still exists. The story behind this one is pretty interesting; Universal sold it to Toho, who split it up into two different movies: King Kong vs. Godzilla and Frankenstein Conquers the World.

Wow, I've never seen those sketches. That's amazing. Thank you!

Get out of my head! These were the first two that I immediately thought of. Singer promised a more action packed sequel. But oh no, WB wanted to go the "Dark Knight" route. Darker and bigger box-office. I don't mind darker, I like dark. And who doesn't want more money? But I hated, and I mean hated, "Man of Steel". And just look at what happened to the "Spider-Man" movies. Like I mentioned in another thread, can Sony possibly be happy with this reboot? Neither film has surpassed the first three at the worldwide box-office. And I don't know a single person who liked either more than Raimi's films. Including the much hated third. Which, save for a handful of scenes, was not that bad of a film overall.
