It appears Justice League’s Cyborg’s tone and role was changed and it was all part of the reshoots that have been taking place. Ben Affleck recently spoke about the reshoots themselves and how they are usual in Justice League as in any other movie project.
During an interview with IGN, actor Joe Morton, who plays Cyborg’s father Dr. Silas Stone, talked about these changes. Morton when and said the additional filming taking place had the purpose of changing the titular character’s tone in the film and that he has being part of the Joss Whedon-directed reshoots. Regarding the changes to Cyborg:
Well, the stuff that I had to do were just really small little bits and pieces, nothing necessarily having to do with tone. 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.
In regards of being part of the upcoming film centered on Cyborg,
Oh, that’s the deal as far as I understand it, that Silas will definitely be part of The Cyborg.
