Ray Fisher shared a new photo of Cyborg facing Steppenwolf from a scene in the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League.
With the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement highlighting Victor Stone today, Snyder joined in on the festivities and shared a new Cyborg image from his cut of Justice League on Vero. The photo shows Cyborg in the superhero landing pose after crashing through the ceiling of STAR Labs to face off with Steppenwolf. We can only see the back of the New God as he looks towards Cyborg, but his focus is on what lies behind him: Silas Stone and a Mother Box.
This image appears to be showing the beginning of a pivotal scene for Cyborg in the Snyder Cut, one which was heavily altered on a story level by Whedon. It is no secret that Snyder intended for Silas Stone to die in his version of Justice League, as evident by an image of Silas caught in an explosion from the Mother Box. This new image looks to be the beginning of his demise as Silas is in the same location and with the powerful box. It is unclear whether Silas accidentally triggers the explosion or if Steppenwolf is responsible for his death, but it is believed that this scene would conclude with Steppenwolf taking the final Mother Box here and Cyborg left crying. When laid out like this, it is easy to see how Cyborg’s role could be much more impactful in the Snyder Cut.
