Cyborg Solo Movie: Still Happening Sometime Around 2020!

Cyborg wasn't mentioned when Warner Bros. announced at San Diego Comic Con International 2017 that a number of DC Extended Universe movies would be made in the coming years. This was a shock for fans, as the studio had previously announced that a standalone movie for Victor Stone would arrive in 2020. The omission led many to believe that the project had been scrapped.

Joe Morton, who's generated buzz lately with his comments about the Justice League reshoots, told ComicBookMovie that the Cyborg solo movie isn't dead. It’s unlikely that the movie will arrive in theaters in 2020, but it's likely that it will move into production during that year:

As far as I know, it is still happening. I believe, although I’m not entirely sure, that it should start sometime around 2020. That seems to be a wonderful metaphoric year for these Cyborgs.

Morton also shared that he signed a three-picture deal with Warner Bros. to portray Dr. Silas Stone in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and Cyborg. While he notes that those plans were “all contingent on how these movies do”, he said he was hopeful that the November 17, 2017 release will perform as impressively as Wonder Woman has.

In Justice League, Victor Stone isn't happy that his dad has replaced most of his body - including part of his face - with metallic implants, although he did it to save his life. When asked whether Ray Fisher’s character holds any resentment toward Dr. Stone, the 69-year-old actor responded:

Yeah, some of that still exists in the film, where Victor sort of feels like, "Yes, you saved my life, but look what you made me look like. I can’t go out and be a regular person." He has no alias, nothing to hide behind. So what I think is great about that idea is that you begin, in a metaphoric way, sort of talking about what it means to be "the other" in society.
