Since the start of the century, we've watched superhero movies grow from being more appreciated as blockbuster entertainment to becoming a mainstay in this industry. Where once we were lucky to have one or even two superhero movies released per year, now certain studios are churning out multiple each year, and this craze isn't dying down anytime soon.Whether it's Marvel, DC or companies like Valiant looking to leave a mark, this genre will be sticking around for a while, but that doesn't mean that every single movie that's been announced will see the light of day. As interesting as some of these sound, we've gathered together some of the superhero movies that we have to acknowledge stand little to no chance of actually being made, starting with one that's been hit with delay after delay.

Gambit

Ever since 2014, we've been patiently waiting for Gambit, who's been a longtime X-Men favorite (particularly from X-Men: The Animated Series) to headline his own movie, only instead of Taylor Kitsch reprising the role, Channing Tatum would take over as the Ragin' Cajun. But in the last four years, the Gambit movie has faced numerous setbacks, namely by losing three directors (Rupert Wyatt, Doug Limn and Gore Verbinski). Originally supposed to be released in October 2016, Gambit is currently scheduled for June 7, 2019, and Tatum feels that these delays actually work in the movie's favor, especially in the wake of Deadpool and Logan. Still, given everything Gambit has been through, it's harder to believe that it will ever see the light of day, so if Fox is keen on Tatum playing the card-throwing mutant, maybe it should stick him in a movie where he isn't the main star.

Cyborg

In keeping with his heightened status since the start of the New 52, the DC Extended Universe brought Cyborg in to be one of the founding Justice Leaguers, and ever since the initial DCEU slate was announced in late 2014, a Cyborg movie has been in development. But numerous other movies have been announced for this franchise since then, and while Ray Fisher hasn't been shy about offering suggestions for what he wants to see in a Cyborg movie, we haven't actually heard any major updates concerning the project. Cyborg was once supposed come out in 2020, but it's highly unlikely this is still the case. However, that doesn't mean we've seen the last of Fisher's Cyborg, and maybe he could pop up as a supporting hero in someone else's movie, similar to Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
