Despite his departure, speculation persists about director Zack Snyder's long-term vision for the Justice League and the DC Extended Universe. Asked about the future of Cyborg at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in New Jersey, Ray Fisher, who played the character in Justice League, revealed Snyder wanted to give Cyborg more attention than ever.
"[What] I will say is Zack had very specific plans for Cyborg, and for his trajectory," Fisher said, adding that, if Snyder's vision came to fruition, Cyborg could have become "one of, if not the most powerful, metahuman in the entire canon, in the film universe."
The actor praised Snyder's prowess for taking characters and evolving them "to the point where, you know, Cyborg is like 'S tier.'"
Fisher also commented on the amount Snyder filmed, saying that the director had shot enough footage to make two films and envisioned a trilogy of Justice League movies. "...Zack probably shot enough footage in the first film to make like two movies out of," he said. "He definitely had a whole, I believe, a trilogy in mind, with respect to Justice League."
Fisher's words also lend some credibility to the possibility of a "Snyder Cut" of Justice League, for which some fans have been calling. There were, at one point, plans to make a solo film centered around Cyborg, but that movie has seemingly stalled.
During the production of Justice League, Warner Bros. decided the movie needed to be significantly trimmed down in order to come in under two hours. As a result, the backstories of Cyborg and Aquaman were left out of the final product.
