Zack Snyder Explains Cyborg’s Cameo In ‘Batman v Superman’

This article contains major spoilers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

We got a glimpse of several Justice League members in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, including Aquaman and The Flash. However, the cameo appearance that stood out the most was the one of Cyborg, seeing as that’s the one that fans have been talking about nonstop since the release of the movie.

Towards the third act, we meet Dr. Silas Stone, a S.T.A.R. Labs scientist who has been trying to help his injured son, Victor Stone, who has suffered severe injuries from an accident. While most of his experiments fail, something that looks like a Mother Box ends up attaching itself to Victor and we briefly see his body being reconstructed before the clip fades to black.

In an interview with EW, Zack Snyder confirmed that what we saw in the clip was indeed a Mother Box and discussed why he decided to show Cyborg’s origin in the movie:

“That’s the first glimpse of the Mother Box there. It was an agonizing birth. I really wanted to show Cyborg’s birth because I feel like he plays such a strong part coming up, and I really wanted to give a sense of him.  I really want [the audience] to know how far he’s come.”

The character will next be seen in the first Justice League movie which starts shooting next month for a November 2017 release, plus his own standalone movie which is currently slated to hit theaters on April 3, 2020.
