Fifty years from now, we are probably going to still be hearing about Zack Snyder’s version of the Justice League and Ray Fisher, asked about his character Cyborg at last month’s Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in New Jersey; gave some insight on the plan Snyder had. We remind people that Snyder stepped away from the project due to family issues, which is why he didn’t stay on. In case, anyone was confused about that.
“We’re not finished just yet, so I don’t know how specific the ‘end result’ is.” Fisher explained. “But what I will say is Zack had very specific plans for Cyborg, and for his trajectory. And Zack probably shot enough footage in the first film to make like two movies out of. He definitely had a whole, I believe, a trilogy in mind, with respect to Justice League. And if his vision had sort of come to fruition, Cyborg would have probably been one of, if not the most powerful, metahuman in the entire canon, in the film universe. And that’s just one of the crazy things about Zack, is that he can take someone who’s such a newcomer and evolve their powers to the point where, you know, Cyborg is like ‘S tier.'”
Although Fisher’s comments give hope to fans and there are those still gunning for a “Snyder version” of the movie, some of the Justice League costars are less optimistic:
“I don’t know if [a Snyder cut] actually exists so the only way I can look at it is as a business model, and I don’t know what difference it’s going to make,” Henry Cavill, who played Clark Kent/Superman, said in an interview earlier this year. “There are stories to be told, which need to be told and adjustments that can be made, but that’s not going to make any difference.”
Are you still holding out hope for a Snyder cut? What are your expectations for the future of the DCEU?
