JUSTICE LEAGUE: Silas Stone Actor Joe Morton On His Character's Mother Box Connection & Cyborg's State Of Mind

Joe Morton talks here about taking on the role of Dr. Silas Stone in Justice League, shedding some light on how Cyborg comes to terms with his transformation and the relationship between father and son.

Justice League boasts an impressive cast but with so much focus put on the main team members, it's easy to forget that it also boasts a stellar group of supporting players! Among them is Joe Morton as Dr. Silas Stone, the S.T.A.R. Labs scientist who uses a Mother Box to transform his son into Cyborg.

"He was in a terrible accident," the actor says when asked about Silas' son Victor and how he plans to help him. "I steal this alien thing called a Mother Box, because I suspect that it might have some properties that are useful. I find out that it does and I use it to keep him alive, and basically change his physical being." We all know that works but how does the youngster feel about his transformation?

"With Cyborg, Silas is trying to teach his son that this is how he is going to look all the time. Cyborg now has a choice - he can still use who he is and what he is for good, instead of allowing it to make him bitter and angry," he says, teasing the character's story arc in Justice League. "You can't change your physical being but you can still make it something that's positive and life-affirming."

As for what this does to the relationship between father and son, Morton adds: "Victor is coping with the loss of his mother and his transformation in his own way and it takes both characters an immense amount of personal growth through the film to begin this discussion of reconnecting."
