Zack Snyder’s Justice League is one of the many reasons DC fans have decided to subscribe to HBO Max, even if it’s a year off. Obviously, Zack is going to have to do some major editing and add some special effects to certain scenes, maybe even fix some colors while he’s at it. While we’re all looking forward to the changed movie, it seems like Cyborg actor Ray Fisher is more excited than most as he praised Snyder for giving him some creative input.
On Twitter, Fisher brought up how Snyder and writer Chris Terrio empowered him by giving him creative input on how Cyborg’s family, the Stones, would be portrayed. Fisher feels this is a huge deal since this is his first major Hollywood role and doesn’t exactly have the clout to get this kind of treatment but Snyder and Terrio asked for his input anyway. Say what you will about his DC movies but Snyder is a good person.
I don’t praise Chris Terrio and @ZackSnyder for simply putting me in Justice League.— Ray Fisher (@ray8fisher) June 6, 2020
I praise them for EMPOWERING me (a black man with no film credits to his name) with a seat at the creative table and input on the framing of the Stones before there was even a script! #BORGLIFE pic.twitter.com/hbshWFkxrJ
Fisher’s Cyborg was originally going to have a much more interesting arc in Justice League but Warner Bros. wanted to have a crowd-pleasing film so they had Joss Whedon try to jumble up Snyder’s movie and make it Marvel-lite. This ended up getting a ton of hate from both DC fans and regular moviegoers who felt that the film just didn’t have a soul.
HBO Max will be releasing Zack Snyder’s Justice League, or the Snyder Cut if you still want to call it that, sometime next year on the streaming service.
