Zack Snyder confirms Cyborg's origins and teases his bigger role in the DCEU

Cyborg Ray Fisher Justice League Zack Snyder

If you've yet to venture out to your local theater and sit down for a screening of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, you may want to avoid the following as it does contain a few minor spoilers. It's no secret that Zack Snyder's BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE contains introductions for many of our future JUSTICE LEAGUE characters, some larger than others, and one of those characters was none other than Victor Stone/Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

The character's introduction in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE came in the form of a video diary viewed by Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) which showed Dr. Silas Stone (Joe Morton) attempting to salvage the mutilated remains of his son. It isn't until Dr. Stone brings a strange shape-shifting cube into the room that something interesting happens, said cube attaches itself to the remains of Victor Stone and begins to transform him into something more. Comic fans were quick to identify that cube as the Mother Box, one of several alien supercomputers which "attach themselves to a host and nurture and protect them in any way necessary, granting them abilities beyond the physical laws of the dimension they occupy." While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Snyder confirmed that the scene of Cyborg's "birth" was indeed our first glimpse at the Mother Box.

That’s the first glimpse of the Mother Box there, it was an agonizing birth.

With the character set to play a much bigger role in the forthcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE film(s), Zack Snyder wanted to make sure we witnessed the birth of Cyborg so we'll know how far Victor Stone has come.

I really wanted to show Cyborg’s birth because I feel like he plays such a strong part coming up, and I really wanted to give a sense of him.  I really want [the audience] to know how far he’s come.

JUSTICE LEAGUE - PART ONE will be released on November 17, 2017, with PART TWO following on June 14, 2019 and CYBORG on April 3, 2020. Once you've seen BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, make sure to let us know what you thought about the film!

Though the movie didn't do anything for me (unfortunately), my two favorite scenes were Wayne's introduction (race to his office) and Gadot looking through the video diaries accompanied by that music - great stuff.

I'd like to see Alex Garland direct the solo Cyborg film based off his past success with doing sci-fi films.

There's nothing to "understand" about BvS. It's all so simple and straight forward that it's a wonder Snyder and co. fucked up so spectacularly.

and Pity to those so close minded that they don't understand that opinions/taste are subjective and some films speak to others more due to life experiences etc. I would hate to be so close minded like that

Yeah, I finally saw it today and it was spectacular. It was dark and heavy (and what an ending!), but it was an exciting, outstanding movie. I could not have been more blown away by Affleck. He really stole the film (and Gadot did great as well).

Now it all makes sense!

Zack Snyder is really good with one thing: TRAILERS! So now every movie is actually just a long trailer for the next movie. Which is -- GET THIS -- actually just ANOTHER TRAILER!!

Bravo, Zack!

this is so true. Zack Snyder is genuis.... in short bursts. he does awesome visuals and is a master at "bringing the page to life". but he can't sustain a whole 2 hour movie.

instead of movies, he should just do DCEU short films. like, i bet he'd make the best Batman youtube fan film of all time.

Yeah he's definitely an excellent DOP... I'd even say he'd make a great co-director (assuming he has the ability to work well with others).

You guys do know he has no control on trailers right!! That's all WB or TW or whoever is working on the marketing, they get what to put in trailers from some guy in a suit not anyone on production.

I feel he DEFINITELY has a say in the trailers as they often have similar tone and structure... HOWEVER to avoid arguing I'll just then say, his movies lend themselves to make great trailers due to the fact that they're all visually unique solo shots, as he is a great dop...
