Justice League Reshoots Altered The Tone Of Cyborg

Posted by August 11, 2017 Comment

Whenever the word “reshoots” comes up, people tend to panic that a movie is a mess. Justice League is a bit of a different due to the circumstances surrounding the terrible tragedy that happened to the Snyder family. For the record, we’re still keeping them in our thoughts. In a recent interview with IGN Joe Morton, who plays Cyborg’s father, Dr. Silas Stone, talked about the reshoots and how they are changing Cyborg’s character in particular.

“Well, the stuff that I had to do were just really small little bits and pieces, nothing necessarily having to do with tone. I know that with Ray [Fisher], 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 in terms of the reshoots but that’s what I heard. That’s what I thought some of the reshoots were about.”

Thus far, this is the first confirmation we’ve had of any tonal shifts within the movie. Cyborg’s dialogue would be hard to nail because he isn’t entirely human, so it would make sense that he would be a little off. Joss Whedon is perhaps more adapt at walking that line. Morton was also asked if he’s going to be returning for the Cyborg solo movie:

“Oh, that’s the deal as far as I understand it, that Silas will definitely be part of The Cyborg.”

Whether or not Justice League will come together as a cohesive whole is still unknown. Hopefully that’s just smoke and no fire.

Fingers crossed.

Summary: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder, stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher. and Henry Cavill. It will be released on November 17th.
