EXCLUSIVE: CYBORG Holds Resentment Towards His Father In JUSTICE LEAGUE; Stand-Alone Film Still Set For 2020

<font color=red>EXCLUSIVE</font>: CYBORG Holds Resentment Towards His Father In JUSTICE LEAGUE; Stand-Alone Film Still Set For 2020

Even though he saved his life, Cyborg still holds some ill feelings towards his father in Justice League according to Silas Stone actor Joe Morton, who also said the stand-alone film is still set for 2020.

It was recently revealed that Joe Morton, who plays Dr. Silas Stone, was part of the Justice League re-shoots, and part of what the actor said the re-shoots were intended to do was lighten-up Cyborg's character.

CBM recently got the chance to chat with Morton, and asked him if Victor still held any resentment towards Silas 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."

The Cyborg stand-alone film wasn't mentioned in the DC Comic-Con line-up last month, so I asked Morton if the film is still happening, and if so, when he starts work on it. "As far as I know it is still happening. 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.

I then moved on to what the casting process was like for him, and it seems Batman v Superman and Justice League Director, Zack Snyder, had Morton in mind for Silas all along. "I got a call from my agent saying, ‘Zack Snyder wants to talk to you about doing Justice League,'" he said. "A couple of days later I got a call him. I was sitting in an airport getting ready to come out to California to film Scandal, and he offered me the role."

With all these major movie franchises, actors often sign multiple picture deals, which is something Morton did as well. "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.

You can catch Morton in Justice League when it hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
