When Warner Bros. announced in 2014 what would become widely known as the DC Extended Universe, the ambitious slate of films that included not only Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam! but also the likes of The Flash and Cyborg. Those first two have been released, and the second two are heading toward theaters; after passing through a handful of directors, and temporarily changing names, The Flash appears back on track. But there remains a question mark over Cyborg, starring Ray Fisher in the title role.
However, actor Joe Morton, who plays Victor Stone's father, believes the solo film is still happening, and cut even utilize cut footage from Justice League.
Morton, who appeared at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour to discuss his upcoming series God Friended Me, reiterated his belief that Cyborg is in development. “I know there’s supposed to be a Cyborg movie they’re going to shoot in 2020," he told Slashfilm. "That’s all I know. I haven’t seen a script yet.”
He said he film scenes as Silas Stone that were cut from Justice League, but thinks they could yet see the light of day. “There was more we shot. They completely changed the story," Morton said. "Unfortunately, I can’t tell you what the original story is because they might end up being in part of the Cyborg movie. Yes, there was a big change once they decided that they were going to do the Cyborg film.”
Cyborg was initially planned to be released in 2020, but this seemingly confirms the movie is still part of the discussion going forward.
