Justice League star Joe Morton says the Cyborg movie is filming in 2020

August 9th, 2018 by Marc Comments

It looks like, although there’s very little chatter about it, the Cyborg movie is still moving ahead.

Star of Justice League (and Terminator 2: Judgment Day) Joe Morton has been chatting about the DC movies – he played Silas Stone, father of Victor Stone AKA Cyborg in Justice League and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – and he said that, despite there being no news about the movie since 2014, it is still happening as far as he knows.

“I know there’s supposed to be a Cyborg movie they’re going to shoot in 2020,” he said, “That’s all I know. I haven’t seen a script.”

As for the scenes in Justice League that he appeared in, as suspected when Whedon took over, he says a lot of it was changed: “There was [moret]. They completely changed the story.”

As for the original story that presumably Zack Snyder wanted to tell about Cyborg, Morton says he can’t talk about it… but we may see it all down the line: “Unfortunately, I can’t tell you what [the original story] is because that might end up being in part of the Cyborg movie,” Morton said.

“Yes, there was a big change once they decided that they were going to do the Cyborg film.”

He also said he knows a bit more about the idea behind the Cyborg movie, should it ever happen: “I think the idea is to deal more with his family so you watch the evolution of him becoming Cyborg,” the actor said.

To us, this implies that the Snyder Cut, should it actually exist, probably will not see the light of day because, if what Morton says is true, it’s completely different than what DC/Warners have planned for Cyborg in the future.

Will Cyborg film in two years? We’ll keep you posted…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
