New details on Cyborg in ‘Justice League’ and his solo movie

Last week Justice League actor Joe Morton gave us an update on the reshoots, and this week Comic Book Movie had a chance to talk to him about even more. Morton plays Dr. Silas Stone, and was asked if Victor Stone feels any resentment towards him for turning him into Cyborg.

“Yeah, some of that still exists in the film where Victor sort of feels like, ’yes you saved my life, but look what you made me look like,” Morton explained. “I can’t go out and be a regular person.’ He has no alias, nothing to hide behind. So what I think is great about that idea is you begin, in a metaphoric way, sort of talking about what it means to be “the other” in society. Even if you have something tremendous to contribute to society, the first thing that most social situations will do is ostracize you because you look different because they don’t know who or what you are. So I think that’s a big deal in this film for that character, and for Silas, and makes for interesting film making.”

Way back in October of 2014 a solo Cyborg movie was announced. It was nowhere to be seen last month at Comic-Con when Warner Bros. announced a more updated slate of movies. CBM asked Morton if the movie was still happening.

“As far as I know it is still happening,” he said. “I believe, although I’m not entirely sure, that it should start sometime around 2020. That seems to be a wonderful metaphoric year for these Cyborgs,” he joked.

Morton also confirmed that he signed a three movie deal.

“It was set up as a three picture deal. The first being Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, the second one being Justice League and the third one being the Cyborg film. So that’s how it’s been set up, but it’s all contingent on how these movies do. And so far, Wonder Woman did really well, and we’re hoping that Justice League does equally as well.”
