** At this point, it's looking like the entire ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' series has become an AbortedArc, as it's been 10 years since the last game released with nothing new on the horizon.

** The "Knightmare" scene from ''BVS'' had a premonition of a dystopian future where Comicbook/{{Darkseid}} ruled the planet (complete with his omega symbol scorched into the ground), with an evil Superman serving as his enforcer and leading an army of Parademons. Later in the movie, Batman was visited by a time-traveling Flash, who warned him of the evil Superman and told him that Comicbook/LoisLane was somehow "the key" to stopping him. Back when ''Justice League'' was going to be a two-part movie, the plan was presumably to have Steppenwolf appear as the villain of Part 1 while Darkseid would be the villain of Part 2, with the evil Superman subplot explored in greater detail. When this plan was scrapped, the whole thing was pretty much abandoned. [[spoiler: Darkseid never appears in the finished ''Justice League'' movie and though Superman [[CameBackWrong Comes Back Wrong]] and has to be calmed down by Lois, it only lasts a few minutes, and the Knightmare scene never comes into play. In fact, even when Batman recruits the present day Flash as part of his team, he never mentions (or even seems to recall) his encounter with the future Flash. Likewise, even though the Parademons are prominently featured, Batman doesn't mention the fact that they appeared in his vision.]]

* ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' fell victim to this itself. The ending very unsubtly set up a plot thread involving the Sinister Six and the mysterious Gustav Fiers, which will now never be resolved thanks to the series being cancelled and rebooted with ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming''.

* One of the many {{Sequel Hook}}s at the end of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' involves Peter attempting to track down the man who shot Uncle Ben. In ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'', this plot thread is never even mentioned. Likely this was meant to be continued in a future film, however with the series now canned so Spider-Man can join the MCU series, it'll never be resolved.

** When the title and it's spin-off series, ''Sonic Universe, was ultimately cancelled due to a ''lot'' of factors, this left a ''lot'' lingering plot threads behind that the writers were hinting to explore later in rebuilding the new universe.

** Where Silver, Gold and Von Schlemmer wound up after defeating the Second Devourer. As this story was a prequel before Silver meeting Sonic in the new universe was shown, that meeting will never be revealed.

** When the title was ultimately cancelled due to a ''lot'' of factors, one lingering plot thread was left behind - Nicole had been left in the backup systems of the Sky Patrol after her old computer was destroyed battling Phage during the final moments of [[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed the Shattered World arc]]. Had both continued, ''Sonic Universe'' would have had an issue where Tails and Sally went to Dr. Elidy to help repair the computer and get Nicole back.

*** Breezie and Honey's deal which they made at the end of the "Champions" arc. It was obvious Breezie was starting to plan something and Honey would likely end up involved.
*** Wendy looking into finding another conch shell: After Wendy joins Eggman's empire (somewhat unwillingly), Eggman sends her off to find a replacement conch shell. Citing he had lost his initial one somehow (Which ended up destroyed at the beginning of the "Worlds Unite" crossover by a Sigma-possed Orbot. Since the events of that comic were erased, he only has hazy memories of it).
*** Snively and whatever ulterior motives he had in GUN: In the new universe, Sniverly defected from Eggman after the events of Sonic 3 and joined G.U.N as their resident science expert. But he was still planning something malicious, having deflected suspicion off him from his superiors. What's more he was now in possession of Eclipse's ship and the Black Arms technology within.
*** Where Eclipse and his Dark Arms (basically Black Arm versions of Wisps) ended up as they were last seen fleeing Angel Island and crashing into an unknown area. Likewise his vendetta against Shadow.
** Where Silver, Gold and Von Schlemmer wound up after defeating the Second Devourer. As this story was a prequel before Silver meeting Sonic in the new universe was shown, that meeting will never be revealed.
*** Some plotlines with a few of the Egg Bosses such as Tundra and Akhlut (two leader of their fractions at war with each other), Nephthys (an Egg Boss who only joined to make sure Eggman rule is undermined while not casting suspicion on her. The Freedom Fighters of that area actually being her friends and working with her with the main cast completely unaware), Conquering Storm (her taking over her homeland and the rising rebellion), Maw (Him being tested on with an secretive experimental power that not even the other Egg Bosses save Nephthys knew about and developing a new robotizicer for Eggman) and Cassia and Clove (two young girls who were tricked into serving Eggman when the latter willingly became a cybrog to save herself from an terminal illness. But unbeknownst to her is isn't cured and Cassia quickly finds this out but Eggman essentially holds her sister hostage by that point).
*** The Setting Dawn Pirates returning and whatever was in that temple they had found with the Chaotix, Echo and Princess Undina in their last issue. Their story likewise tied into one of the Egg Bosses, Abyss.

*** And Eggman trying to re-power his Death Egg with the implication he was going to go to the Lost Hex to acquire energy for it (which likewise in turn would lead to an another encounter with the Deadly Six, the first one was in the World Unite crossover but that was erased at the end of the event) and the threat of the adformentioned new robotizicer.

** Half of "The Birth Of Mewtwo" radio drama, meant to go with ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'' and later animated (though [[AdaptedOut excluding a large portion]]), revolves around Jessie's MissingMom Miyamoto and how she's been searching for Mew for twenty years. Outside of the drama nothing has referenced Miyamoto. She has yet to be reunited with Jessie.

* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' was originally supposed to be the lead-in to a 2-part ''Film/JusticeLeague'' movie, but when it underperformed and was trashed by critics, ''Justice League'', those plans were heavily altered. As a result of heavy retooling and [[TroubledProduction many behind the scenes issues]], the resulting movie (now a single film) ignored most of the set-up that its predecessor established. These include:

** In ''The Man Without Fear'', David Liss introduced an EvilCounterpart for T'Challa named the American Panther. The story ended with the villain defeated, but with his costume and mask unaccounted for. The final shot showed someone putting on the American Panther mask and cryptically saying "The world has been waiting for my return. Well...here I am," but the mystery of who this was ended up going nowhere. WordOfGod is that it would have eventually been revealed that the new American Panther was Kasper Cole, the young man who had briefly replaced T'Challa as the Black Panther during [[Creator/ChristopherPriestComics Christopher Priest]]'s run. The next time Kasper officially appeared, it was revealed that he'd given up on crime-fighting altogether, and there was no indication that he'd ever worn the American Panther suit.
