Justice League VFX Video Reveals Batman and Cyborg's Superhero Secrets

Justice League VFX Video Reveals Batman and Cyborg's Superhero Secrets
A new VFX reel for Justice League has just been released online and it gives us a sneak peek into the digital special effects that went into making the little details of Dceu movie look as great as it does. The movie finally hit theaters last week after months of controversy and speculation and while the movie is divisive, one thing that almost everybody can agree upon is that the villainous Steppenwolf looks like he has on way too much CGI makeup and really doesn't look scary or evil at all. The new VFX reel focuses on the heroes of the Justice League and their user interfaces that do a lot of the heavy lifting, not the overall CGI used in the movie.

The Justice League VFX reel shows off some of the lesser-seen elements of the movie, but they are integral pieces to the movie that deserve some spotlight.

Interview: Justice League's Ray Fisher On Becoming Cyborg

What do you if your acting debut is as one of the legendary characters in a long-awaited superhero series? If you are rising star, Ray Fisher, you handle your appearance as Cyborg in director Zack Snyder’s Justice League with coolness and grace. In an exclusive chat, Fisher spoke with me about playing Victor Stone’s mecha-man alter-ego, Cyborg, being the new kid on the DC block, Apokoliptian tech, fandom, and making the choice to be a man or a monster. The Lady Miz Diva: Speaking with you before our interview, you mentioned that during promotion for Justice League is a labor of love. Tell us about that? Ray Fisher: It’s a labor of love because this is something that I’ve loved as...

Justice League: Director’s Cut, Lord & Miller break silence on Han Solo firing, Ant-Man and The Wasp set photos and more – Daily News Roundup

Justice League: The Director’S Cut

It was revealed earlier this year that Zack Snyder was stepping down as director on Justice League, with Joss Whedon filling in for him. However one of the bigger complaints from film goers about the rather disappointing DC team-up movie was that Whedon’s jokes and Danny Elfman’s music were misplaced in Snyder’s work. As such, some fans have started a petition for Warner Bros. to release Snyder’s original cut of the movie – which they feel will be a better version. Read more here.

Justice League Deleted Scenes

In a new interview with Gamespot, Ray Fisher has spoken about a deleted scene – seen in the trailers – of a pre-Cyborg Victor Stone. “There were some things that you’ll probably end up seeing later on, that didn’t make it into this version of the film,” he said. “There’s a scene with Victor Stone,

Ray Fisher discusses a deleted Cyborg scene from Justice League

If you kept up to date with all of the marketing material for Justice League and have now seen the final film, chances are you’ll have noticed that a couple of Victor Stone’s pre-Cyborg scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.

In addition to the above shot, the trailers also featured a glimpse of Victor playing football, and it seems those weren’t the only two scenes of the character pre-accident that were shot for the movie.

“There were some things that you’ll probably end up seeing later on, that didn’t make it into this version of the film,” actor Ray Fisher tells Gamespot. “There’s a scene with Victor Stone, when he still was Victor Stone, and his mother, that was really special to shoot.”

Fisher also spoke about the changes to the film as a result of the reshoots, stating that: “You’re shooting and testing,

Leaked Justice League Deleted Scenes Show Iris West and More Cyborg

  • MovieWeb
Over the weekend, we heard that most of the deleted scenes from Justice League featured Cyborg's backstory. We get to see what that looked like now in some leaked footage that is making its way across the internet. These deleted scenes, some of which haven't been completed, also give us a look at the Keirsey Clemons cameo that was axed from the movie.

The original runtime for Justice League was said to be nearly three hours. When Joss Whedon stepped into replace director Zack Snyder, that runtime was shaved down to exactly one hour and forty-nine minutes minus credits and post-credit scenes. That means over an hour of the movie is sitting unfinished in a Warner Bros. vault in Burbank. Now, some of the missing footage has popped up, and it gives us a better idea about Zack Snyder's original vision.

Justice League was supposed to be the Dceu's most important movie,

Movie Review – Justice League (2017)

Justice League, 2017.

Directed by Zack Snyder.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Ciarán Hinds, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Billy Crudup, J.K. Simmons, and Jeremy Irons.

Synopsis:

Inspired by Superman’s heroic sacrifice, Batman and Wonder Woman assemble a team of heroes to tackle the demonic Steppenwolf.

Lots of big films have troubled productions, but few go through such publicised woes as DC’s latest. Zack Snyder, director of the Dceu’s first two instalments, left the project while it was in its final stages due to a family tragedy, and Joss Whedon was promptly roped in to handle reshoots and to oversee post-production. This was met with mixed reactions from the fanbase ? some were excited because Whedon had managed to craft successful and entertaining ensemble pieces with The Avengers and (to a lesser extent) Avengers: Age of Ultron,

Justice League review – dour and wooden beneath the wisecracks

Joss Whedon’s quips sit ill with Zack Snyder’s leaden direction, while Ben Affleck makes for an unconvincing Batman in this dire DC offering

With Superman out of the picture, Batman and Wonder Woman must come together to assemble a ragtag group of superheroes to rescue three “Mother Boxes” from the evil demon Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds, barely recognisable underneath all the CGI) in this inchoate sequel. Their team includes Ezra Miller as superfast, socially awkward, self-confessed “black hole of snacks” the Flash, Game of Thrones’s Jason Momoa as the frequently shirtless Aquaman and Victor Stone (Ray Fisher), a former college football star turned Cyborg. Ribbing wisecracks, courtesy of co-writer Joss Whedon, jar with director Zack Snyder’s oppressive, dour approach to the source material. Ben Affleck is especially wooden as Batman/Bruce Wayne, while Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman (unsung leader of the pack and the film’s

10 Justice League Scenes That Were Not in the Movie

Red Stewart on 10 Justice League scenes that were not in the movie…

Justice League has opened to mixed reviews, with many praising the cast and action scenes but taking jabs at the tonal inconsistencies. You can read our own review here, but the overall message is that the film is enjoyable and fun. The marketing team did a good job showcasing the humor and heart the titular team has, and you can see just how much fun it is to see your favorite heroes come together.

But Justice League was also the victim of executive meddling, with reports that Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara required that the movie come in under 2 hours, including credits. As such, a lot of cuts had to be made, and they can evidently be seen in the final movie’s first act where scenes jump between the heroes almost instantly.

Justice League Deleted Scenes Include a Lot More Cyborg

  • MovieWeb
Warner Bros. Justice League is finally in theaters right now, and while some are already planning their second and third trips to see this superhero adventure on the big screen, others are looking forward to the additional material that will arrive with the Blu-ray and DVD release. Ray Fisher, who plays Cyborg in this superhero ensemble, revealed that there was one particular scene that he shot which was very special to him, although it never made it in the theatrical cut. Here's what he had to say about this flashback scene, which involves Victor Stone and his mother.

"There were some things that you'll probably end up seeing later on, that didn't make it into this version of the film. There's a scene with Victor Stone, when he still was Victor Stone, and his mother, that was really special to shoot. It does feel like an origin, particularly to people

Justice League movie review: grab ’em by the fanboy

MaryAnn’s quick take… The cinematic equivalent of Trump and Brexit as awfulness brought upon ourselves. Incoherent and cheap-looking. There are no heroes, and everything is broken. I’m “biast” (pro): loved Wonder Woman, liked Man of Steel

I’m “biast” (con): …but not a fan of the other Dceu movies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

These are the times that try woman’s soul. Trump. Brexit. Harvey Weinstein. Al Franken. (Really? Damn.) Global warming. Syria. Everything is awful. Everything is broken. Blake Shelton is People’s Sexiest Man alive? Christ, someone make it stop.

So it’s actually rather brilliant of Warner Bros and DC to fully embrace the everything-is-shit zeitgeist with a movie that just throws up its hands and agrees that the world and those in charge of it are garbage. Justice League is almost a meta exegesis of reality in

‘Justice League’ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, Jk Simmons, Ciarán Hinds | Written by Chris Terrio, Joss Whedon | Directed by Zack Snyder

DC’s Justice League has had a famously troubled production history, from panicked reshoots and rewrites to director Zack Snyder having to leave the project due to a family tragedy. DC cannily drafted in Joss Whedon to finish the film, which lead to yet more reshoots and rewrites, as well as Whedon shooting a reputed 15 to 20 per cent of the finished film. Unfortunately, the patch-up job has been clumsily handled and the result is both ugly to look at and a slog to sit through, marred by shoddy effects work and a general lack of imagination.

The plot continues on directly from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Superman (Henry Cavill) is dead,

Justice League – Review

Bruce Wayne is a rich man. He’s an aristocrat. Superman grew up as Clark Kent on a farm bailing hay, and he’s got a boss that shouts at him if he’s late to work. He’s actually more human.”

Grant Morrison

This quote from comic book legend Grant Morrison is what’s at the heart of the problem at why so many of the recent DC films have not worked and why so few have. It’s not that these films were missing the comedy aspect like some critics and fans have expressed. I think it’s more complex than just adding a few clever one-liners. As Grant Morrison suggests, these men and women aren’t just heroes that save the world.

Even though the Marvel formula has clearly worked for the studio, the answer to DC’s prayers isn’t that they need to resemble that formula.

Justice League Review

Justice League is a “step in the right direction” in that instead of tumbling down an upwards-climbing escalator on an endless loop, DC has now managed to brace itself on a bottom step, clutching the handrail in a dizzied, confused daze. Patty Jenkins blazed a trail for franchise improvement with Wonder Woman, but this Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon double-team steps right back into the Dceu’s own mismanaged stink.

Forced “humor” clashes with Snyder’s brand of glib intensity, action sequences rage with no captivation, backstory establishment gets tossed aside – but yes, it’s far more “fun” than Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. For whatever that’s worth? Marvel cultivated their rivaling luminescent, “bright side” universe through patience and genuine charisma – DC just wants to bottle the same magic, hellbent on replicating an existing formula without understanding.

The Justice League’s first venture is to prevent Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), a cosmic warlord,

“Justice League” tries to save the day for DC

Today is the day for DC and Warner Brothers. At long last, all of their superheroes are sharing the screen. A few hours from now, the first public screenings of Justice League will begin, giving fans a chance to not just see Batman, Superman (yes, he’s in it…duh), and Wonder Woman on screen, but also Aquaman, Flash, and more. This has been the goal since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was first given the thumbs up. So, what about the quality? Well, it’s better than Suicide Squad, I’ll give it that. Where it stands elsewhere, well, that’s something we’ll get to below… The film continues the story began in Man of Steel and continued in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Second Opinion – Justice League (2017)

Justice League, 2017.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Ciarán Hinds, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Billy Crudup, J.K. Simmons, Kiersey Clemons and Jeremy Irons.

Synopsis:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
