We’ve known for a little while now that Justice League was undergoing some substantial reshoots, and now we’re hearing that part of the reason for these reshoots is to tweak the character of Cyborg.
Out of all of the heroes assembling for Justice League, Cyborg is easily the least well-known of the bunch, and even longtime comic book fans often find the character had to really get behind. If you ask us, ol’ Vic Stone will never be anything more than a Titan in our minds, but then that’s maybe just because that’s what many of us grew up with. Either way, the character is certainly one of the weaker comic book JL members, and cinematically he’s somebody that needs to be handled carefully by Warner Brothers if casual moviegoers are to be expected to place him on the same level as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Aquaman. Even more-so given that the studio still has plans for Cyborg to headline his own movie at some point down the line.
The news of these reshoots being done to tweak Cyborg came courtesy of an interview Joe Morton did with IGN. Morton, who plays Dr. Silas Stone, the father of Victor Stone and the creator of Cyborg, told the outlet, “I know that with Ray , the young man who plays Victor, there were some adjustments that they made in terms of the tone of that character. I think what I heard was that there was a need from the studio to lighten up the film in a way, that the film felt too dark. I don’t know what that meant in terms of how it actually got translated of the reshoots but that’s what I heard. That’s what I thought some of the reshoots were about.”
At present, Joss Whedon is handling the reshoots due to director Zack Snyder taking a backseat following the tragic loss of his daughter. Despite these relatively extensive reshoots, Justice League is still booked in for a November 10th, 2017 release.
