JUSTICE LEAGUE Star Confirms That Joss Whedon's Reshoots Have Lightened The Movie's Tone (Specifically Cyborg)

Justice League star Joe Morton (Dr. Silas Stone) has revealed in a new interview that Joss Whedon has indeed been changing the tone of the movie, specifically with the portrayal of the once stoic Cyborg.

We heard not too long ago that Joss Whedon's Justice League reshoots were "extensive" and those of you who speculated at the time that The Avengers director might be lightening the movie's tone have seemingly been proven right! During a recent interview with IGN, actor Joe Morton - who plays Dr. Silas Stone, the father of Victor/Cyborg - has confirmed that tonal changes are indeed being made. 

Asked if he's participated in any scenes which have changed his character, Morton said no, but did go on to reveal that Cyborg has undergone some significant changes in the way he'll be portrayed. 


"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." Thinking about it, this makes a lot of sense. 

In the trailers for Justice League, Cyborg has come across as quite joyless and that probably has something to do with the fact that Zack Snyder wanted to emphasise just how difficult it is for him to have to come to terms with the fact that he's now more machine than man. He's no longer in charge, though, and if Whedon wants to make Cyborg a wise-cracking hero, that's what's going to happen!
