Zack Snyder has been keeping himself busy as of late on social media as the Justice League director has been keeping in touch and interacting with fans by sharing some insight in regards to the slew of cut content that was ultimately left out of the theatrical cut of the 2017 DC Comics film.
As reported earlier today, the Justice League director revealed some interesting storyboards that foretold the history of the Mother Box that was kept in the custody and protection of the humans since the defeat of Steppenwolf up until finding its way to the hands of S.T.A.R. Labs scientist Silas Stone (Joe Morton). To add context the newfound information given by Snyder, an image shared by the DC Films community reveals a new behind-the-scenes photo of Victor Stone (Ray Fisher) just moments before becoming cybernetically reconstructed by the same Mother Box and ultimately becoming the techno-organic superhero, Cyborg.

JL: Here’s Victor Stone on the operating table. It was part of the sequence that Zack Snyder just shared with storyboards. Victor sees himself after the accident and his father working on him from r/DC_Cinematic
Giving all of the supplemental content and scenes that were left on the cutting room floor, its a shame yet all while interesting to see what could have been in regards to Snyder’s original cut of Justice League. While Fisher’s portrayal of Cyborg became a favorite among fans of the film, this piece of evidence along with other deleted scenes that have since then made their way online seem to further indicate that moviegoers lost out on further character development for Victor Stone in the final cut of the movie.
It will be interesting to see what other deleted content from the film that Snyder will end up sharing next as fans continue to anticipate what’s next for the DC Extended Universe and the eventual cinematic return of Fisher as Cyborg.

8 Reasons Ben Affleck Is The Best Live-Action Batman
When it was first announced that Ben Affleck had been cast as Bruce Wayne / Batman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, most fans were less-than-thrilled with the decision, with many pointing to the actor’s previous role in the critically lambasted Daredevil film as a prime example of why he was a terrible choice to don the cape and cowl. Once Batman v Superman was finally released in theaters, the divisive film had its fair share of supporters and detractors, though most of them could agree that there was at least one aspect of the film that worked: Ben Affleck’s portrayal of Batman.
While the debate over who is the best actor to portray Batman will undoubtedly continue as long they keep bringing to Caped Crusader to the big screen, here are 8 reasons why some consider Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight to be the greatest live-action depiction of the DC Comics hero to date.
