MultiVersus is a platform fighting game, Similar to the likes of Smash Bros and Brawlhalla. You will see characters team up and fight each other from characters owned by Warner Bros.

The original Space Jam is a crossover between NBA and Looney Tunes. Space Jam: A New Legacy is the crossover for all Warner Brothers properties. On my first watch of the trailer, I saw Hanna Barbera characters like Yogi Bear and the Flintstones. DC comics characters are also visible in the film. I saw Batman and some of his villains. In one of the scenes, Penguin is in the audience sitting next to the Mask.
Pepe Le Pew is cancelled! After accusations of his being a glamorization of rape culture. WB will not include him in future projects.
Lola Bunny got a makeover and it causes a rift between fans. Some fans think her new redesign is progressive. They think her new design progress because people will notice her personality instead of her sex appeal. Then, on the other side of the fence, some fans think this is pandering to the sex-negative feminist. Anita Sarkeesian will probably approve of this new design. This is actually not the first time Lola got redesigned. On the 2011 reboot of Looney Tunes, she already lost the curves. She still has breasts and hips but not as sensual as her 90s counterpart. In the 1996 film, she is a bombshell while the 2011 tv series made her less of a bombshell and more of a comedic goofball that annoys people.
The announcements weren’t all for grown-ups at the HBO Max presentation tonight. Several new cartoons targeting a young audience were revealed for the service. Several of them happen to star resurrected versions of classic WB and Hanna-Barbera characters. If we had to guess, we’d say this stuff was originally meant for the Boomerang channel / streaming service. Wonder what’s gonna happen to that.

Famous comic writer Max Landis will be making an animated film based on the popular Looney Tunes character Pepe Le Pew.
On February 4th, 2016, I saw the news posted on Tom Ruegger’s Facebook page. The news was that Joe Alaskey, who worked so memorably with Mr. Ruegger and crew on Tiny Toon Adventures, had died at the age of 63. I told my brother, who also liked Tiny Toon Adventures, about his passing, and my brother wondered if it was cancer that claimed him. I said I hope not, but I was to be distressed when I read that, indeed, it was cancer that claimed Alaskey’s life. I was angered, and I was saddened, and I’ll explain why in this memorial piece.
On February 21st, the Internet lit up, as Deadline posted about the strong possibility of there being a sequel to the ironically loved (or fundamentally loathed) 1996 film Space Jam. That made the Internet light up for obvious reasons, especially with the accompanying report that LeBron James was going to be attached to the film, replacing Michael Jordan (which makes sense, because Space Jam turns 18 years old this year).
Ask any fans of classic Looney Tunes to list their favorite theatrical shorts and it’s nearly guaranteed that Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century (1953, directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese) will be included in there somewhere. Animation guru/historian Jerry Beck of CartoonBrew.com gave it the #4 slot in his 1994 book, The 50 Greatest Cartoons, and of course it made the cut again in Beck’s 2010 compilation, The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes Cartoons. And if that still doesn’t convince you and you’re up to the task, try counting how many times Duck Dodgers is mentioned when Jerry asked for feedback in compiling his “100 Greatest” list.
