Justice League director Zack Snyder has released a new still showing a cut confrontation between Victor Stone/Cyborg and Steppenwolf.
Snyder posted the following picture of Cyborg standing between his father and Steppenwolf to Vero. In Snyder's cut of the film, Steppenwolf killed Silas, though the character survived in the theatrical release, as a lot of content relating to Cyborg didn't make that version of the movie. Snyder captioned the photo, "Defending the father."
The production process for Justice League was infamously troubled, and the movie ultimately failed to meet expectations at the box office. After Snyder left Justice League following a family tragedy, director Joss Whedon was called in to complete reshoots that reportedly gave the film a lighter tone. Rumors of a Snyder Cut of Justice League quickly began gaining traction online, and several people involved with the production, including Snyder himself, have publicly discussed that version of the movie.
Next up for the DC Extended Universe is Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), slated for release Feb. 7, 2020; Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984, coming June 5 2020; James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, which arrives August 6, 2021; and Matt Reeves' solo Batman film, which will swing into theaters June 25, 2021.
