Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League effectively fixed all the wrongs that was prevalent in the 2017 theatrical version of the film, directed by Joss Whedon. Fans especially loved Ray Fisher’s portrayal of Cyborg in Snyder’s version, dubbing him as the heart of the film.
On the other hand, the theatrical version of Cyborg was met with a lot of criticism as his character was very one-note and barely felt important. However, there were efforts to add more scenes for Cyborg in the theatrical version of the film, but it seems Ray Fisher was vehemently against them.
While speaking to Empire magazine, Ray Fisher revealed that he was against the inclusion of a violent scene in the theatrical version, which would have seen Cyborg’s legs being ripped from his body by Steppenwolf.
“Had I not been so welcomed in the initial process I might not have felt as comfortable speaking up about those circumstances. But I had to try to rein those guys in. It was not a good look to essentially pull this Black man, who has already endured so much physical trauma, limb from limb.”
Fans will most definitely forget the existence of Cyborg in the theatrical version after watching the Snyder Cut as it vastly improved Cyborg as a character. Ray Fisher also recently stated that he is hopeful about appearing in the upcoming Flash solo film. We will have to see if that happens or not.
