Out of all of the members of the upcoming Justice League, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg has been probably the most out-of-focus with regards to Warner Bros.’ large promotional push. That’s not wholly stunning; neither Fisher nor the character are particularly large names (particularly not when stacked up towards Ben Affleck or Marvel Lady), and in contrast to, say, Aquaman, Cyborg doesn’t have his personal film popping out quickly to construct up hype round.
However that doesn’t imply poor previous Vic Stone is being fully ignored because the movie strikes nearer to completion. Based on a brand new IGN interview with co-star Joe Morton—who performs Silas Stone, the scientist who reworked his son into the metallic superhero—Cyborg has been an enormous a part of the reshoots being finished by the movie’s new director, Joss Whedon, who took over the challenge after Zack Snyder stepped away to spend extra time together with his household within the wake of his daughter’s dying. Based on Morton—who additionally riffs on the similarities between his function in Justice League and his well-known efficiency as cybernetics fanatic Miles Dyson in Terminator 2—quite a few Whedon’s reshoots have been about lightening the film’s tone, particularly regarding the Cyborg character.
“I do know that with Ray, the younger man who performs Victor, there have been some changes that they made when it comes to the tone of that character,” Morton stated. “I feel what I heard was that there was a necessity from the studio to loosen up the movie in a approach, that the movie felt too darkish. I don’t know what that meant when it comes to the way it really acquired translated when it comes to the reshoots however that’s what I heard.” It’s not clear what quantity of Whedon’s reshoots have been particularly about including some levity to Cyborg, or if the whole movie is getting a normal lightening up from the darker tone of the franchise’s earlier installments within the aftermath of Marvel Lady’s success.
