Is A John Cena Movie So Bad The Studio Will Not Release It?
Warner Bros. studios made an announcement that a live-action animated hybrid movie starring John Cena that finished filming a while ago is no longer going to be released…so you really can’t see John Cena.
The film was about the Looney Tunes character Wile E. Coyote, called “Coyote vs. Acme” and it cost the studio $30 million to make and it will not see a release. The movie starring John Cena had completed filming back in 2022 and was greenlit by the former management team with plans to be released on HBOMax.
According to reports, the movie was directed by David Green, who directed the 2016 ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’ and even with James Gunn helping with the story it was not enough for the studio to put it out.
Green posted a statement online about how devastated he was about the decision.
No word on exactly why they decided to can the film after all this time, money, and energy was put into it. Obviously, the new regime at the studio didn’t feel that the film was worthy of release so it’s probably not very good, but no one is coming out and saying that. So don’t start pointing fingers at the 16-time WWE Champion for this one.
News outlets are saying that with the Warner Bros. relaunch the studio has shifted priorities and felt this movie didn’t fit with the new creative direction of the company.
You might recall that they’ve done this before. They buried their $90 million “Batgirl” movie AND the kid-friendly “Scoob! Holiday Haunt” . . . which they sank $40 million into. Apparently, they were worth more as tax write-offs.
