If you’re confused about what can expect from the DC Extended Universe on the heels of Justice League’s disappointing performance, you’re not alone. Audience’s lack of support for the film made it clear that the status quo is not acceptable there, and as a result, a lot of their content seems to be in flux.
For every couple reports of one movie disappearing from their slate, we get a couple more saying they’re still happening. All in all, it seems clear that DC Films is still figuring things out, and it sounds like this could also apply to the Cyborg movie.
Yup, even the movie that many assumed would never get made (and the movie that has been notably absent for months now from any discussions) is getting some news in favor of its potential existence. Speaking with ET, Justice League actor Joe Morton (who played Cyborg’s father), said:
“From what I understand, there will be a Cyborg movie. It will be about him and I, and about the family that he came from, how he becomes the Cyborg, et cetera, But from whence he came, as well….I think it’s very exciting I think it’s exciting because there aren’t that many, if any, black superheroes, and in his case in particular, because there is no alias, because there is nothing for him to hide behind, and that he has to be who he is all the time. I think it’s a great kind of allegory for what it means to be black in this country.”
Sounds like it could be interesting, and while I think actor Ray Fisher’s performance as Cyborg was better than expected, an actual standalone film seems like a tall order. We still maintain that this is one of the least likely films on that slate to get made, but DC has made unexpected moves in the past.
What do you think of Joe Morton’s comments? Do you think we’ll be getting a Cyborg movie ever? Let us know down below!
