** ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'' would have featured Hank Scorpio from the episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E2YouOnlyMoveTwice You Only Move Twice]]" as its villain, but he ended up being replaced by Russ Cargill due to potential CharacterDerailment for Scorpio.

* ''HeavyGear'' deserves a mention. The original plotline for the show was much closer to the Tabletop Game it was based on, with the Heavy Gear Tournament only taking up the first arc of its run. The story after that involved renewed conflict between the North and South, and then with both factions having to team up to fight off an Invasion from Earth. This storyline was however scrapped because the executives thought the plotline would be too hard for Children to follow (despite the fact that the Tabletop Game was originally NOT marketed at that demographic). As a result, the Tournament Arc was kept, but the episodes after that became mostly Exhibition Matches and a pair of Clip Shows.

** An early idea for the series was to have it be a team-up show, much like the later ''Batman: The Brave and the Bold'' series. Each episode would have seen Superman teaming up with different members of the Justice League, with concept art showing Batman, Robin, Captain Marvel, Comicbook/GreenLantern (Hal Jordan), WonderWoman, TheFlash, {{Hawkman}}, PowerGirl and Comicbook/BlueBeetle. Villains featured in the concept art included Catwoman, the Penguin, the Joker, Star Sapphire, Captain Cold, Doctor Sivana, the Cheetah and Eclipso. Jenette Kahn put the kibosh on the idea, arguing that Superman would have been overshadowed in his own TV show.

** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' was tested out on primetime TV but failed for that timeslot. It's possible its success would have lead to more maturely themed stories.

** Originally the "[[CaptainErsatz Justice Guild of America]]" from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' was going to be the actual Comicbook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica, but [[ExecutiveMeddling pressure from DC]] necessitated the change to not-quite-exact copies.
** Plans were made for the ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' to guest star in an episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' with a BroadStrokes retelling of their origin. Barbara Gordon, as ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}, would be hospitalized while on a mission and be forbidden by Batman from pursuing the matter further. Unwilling to let the matter go, she would recruit ComicBook/BlackCanary and the ComicBook/{{Huntress}} and use them to finish the mission while monitoring them over the radio. Unfortunately, the 'Bat-Embargo,' a moratorium on using Batman related characters due to conflicts with ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' and ''Film/BatmanBegins'', necessitated the removal of Batgirl from the story and it was re-written into "Double Date."



** [[Comicbook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] was originally going to appear in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', but both the infamous problems about his name (IAmNotShazam) and trouble trying to figure out how to put him in ''without'' having to create a Justice League delayed his DCAU integration until ''Justice League Unlimited''. Even then, they were only able to have him in one episode and name-check him in another.
*** Speaking of ''Superman: The Animated Series'', Creator/ClancyBrown, who voiced Lex Luthor, originally auditioned for the role of Superman.

They were very interested in offering him the role until they heard Clancy Brown. Howard was subsequently cast as The Preserver in two episodes of ''Superman'', and later Derek Powers on ''Batman Beyond''.



* After being pressured to add a Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}-like hero to ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', Bruce Timm considered introducing a futuristic version of the Comicbook/{{Huntress}}. Given that Huntress is the daughter of Batman and Catwoman in some continuities, this could have opened up some interesting story ideas.

* ** Ma and Pa Kent were supposed to be the ones to die at the end of "Apokolips...Now!", but DC said they would have to be resurrected. Since Bruce Timm wanted to kill off someone for real, the production team settled on Dan Turpin instead.

** "Legacy" was intended to be the kickoff for a season's worth of episodes about Superman trying to regain the world's trust, but instead became the series finale. The subplot about the world not trusting superheroes was eventually used in ''Justice League''.

** One rejected script featured the son of Superman and Lashina, who had been conceived during Superman's time under Darkseid's control. The son would have set his sights on Earth after having conquered Apokolips, leading to an all out battle against Batman and the Justice League. A subplot would have been Superman struggling with the guilt of not having known his child.
** Another rejected script had Terry become an item with Maxine after Dana breaks up with him. That episode is a double What Could Have Been, as Bruce Timm's original plan for the episode would have explored Terry and Dana's relationship more and ended with it being strengthened. Timm rejected the episode script after Alan Burnett changed the entire purpose.
** Mr. Freeze's role was originally just a one-off gag appearance, where Terry was getting a soda for Bruce and, in an awkward moment, would find Mr. Freeze's head and they'd briefly stare at each other, and then Terry would close the fridge and give the soda to Bruce. This was discarded because it was an insulting and unfitting ending for his character.
** A second DVD movie was planned after ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondTheReturnOfTheJoker'', which would have seen the return of Catwoman. Though the film was scrapped, elements of it were used in the "Epilogue" episode of ''Justice League Unlimited''.
** The Terrific Trio from "Heroes" were slated to return in the early 2000's comic series, but MarvelComics objected due to their resemblance to the Fantastic Four.
** Hilary Bader pitched a LighterAndSofter sequel to the series, which would've seen Terry and his family moving to a Terraformed colony on Mars.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
** As mentioned in the ''Superman'' section, there was talk of a ''Justice League''-style cartoon way back in the late 90's. In addition to the likes of {{Supergirl}}, Comicbook/{{Vixen}}, Comicbook/DoctorFate, and Comicbook/TheQuestion, the team also would've included Comicbook/BlackLightning, Mister Miracle and Lightray of the Comicbook/NewGods, and Nightshade (in a Comicbook/{{Psylocke}}-inspired outfit). Batman would not have been part of the JLA, as he still had his own TV show at the time.
** Early concept and pitch art shows a different line-up for the series. One piece had Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, the John Stewart Green Lantern (who would've worn a mask), Aquaman (with his classic design) and Orion. Another featured the same line-up, but with Orion gone, and the inclusion of Green Arrow, Black Canary and Hawkman, with Hawkgirl apparently planned to appear as well.
** ''Justice League'' was originally pitched as being a show about the JLA and their [[Comicbook/YoungJustice sidekicks]], being more aimed for the Saturday Morning Cartoon kids crowd. Thankfully, wiser decisions were made. A reel of test animation for the early concept shows Robin and Impulse to be the sidekicks, along with a teenage girl version of Comicbook/{{Cyborg}}, who ironically ended up becoming a CanonImmigrant.
** The then-believed-to-be-final episode of JLU was to have ended with Clark Kent revealing his identity to Lois Lane.
** Had the show been renewed again, there were plans for an additional 13 episode season of ''Justice League Unlimited'', which would have been one large arc featuring the League traveling through time and encountering heroes like Comicbook/EnemyAce and the Atomic Knights. There were also ideas for the hypothetical season to take place in the ''Batman Beyond'' time period featured in "Epilogue". However, nothing ever really evolved beyond the initial idea phase, as the writers were all sure "Destroyer" was going to be the final episode.

** Paul Dini and Bruce Timm wanted to use the original Supergirl, Kara Zor-El, instead of the then-current Supergirl (Matrix/Linda Danvers in the comics), but they were denied by DC Comics, due to the then-current "Superman is the ''only'' survivor of Krypton" edict.

** Head writer Aaron Ehasz envisioned a fourth season where the politics of the world following the defeat of the Fire Nation could be explored. Said season would also include a two-parter that would explore Iroh's past and a story arc where Toph confronts her issues stemming from her parents' emotional abuse. Ehasz would have also preferred the series ending with Katara and Zuko as a couple instead of her and Aang.



** Asami Sato was originally going to be a Equalist along with her father. Mike and Bryan liked Asami's interactions with Korra, Bolin and Mako too much to flush it with a betrayal, so re-wrote her to be an UnwittingPawn.

** The JLU episode "[[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS1E5ThisLittlePiggyThisLittlePiggy]]" would have contained perhaps the greatest moment of the entire animated DCU: The Joker would have been shown with Harley Quinn and his gang, laying out his plans for a wild and complex crime. He would have then spotted Batman walking by, carrying a pig dressed like Wonder Woman and talking to it. After a pause, the Joker would have thrown up his hands and called the scheme off, saying nothing he planned could possibly top that. Sadly, they couldn't find a way to fit this into the episode's time constraints.
