Terminator 2: Judgment Day star Joe Morton was on a Television Critics Association panel for his new CBS show God Friended Me. He plays the estranged father of an atheist podcaster (Brandon Michael Hall) who begins getting Facebook requests from God. The father/son relationship is further complicated because Morton’s character is a preacher, but there’s a different father/son relationship that you likely want to know more about from a certain DC Comics movie.
/Film asked Joe Morton about the status of the Cyborg movie first announced in 2014, which hasn’t had any updates in recent years. He plays Silas Stone, the scientist father of Victor Stone (Ray Fisher) who builds his son a cyborg body after Victor suffers a catastrophic accident. Morton tells us what knows about the status of the developing Cyborg movie, how the Justice League reshoots changed his story and what that could mean for the solo film. Read More »

Justice League is now playing in theaters everywhere and if you went into the film hoping to see all of the flashy stuff on display in the multiple trailers, you might’ve been disappointed. There are numerous moments from the previews that aren’t in the final film, which, when combined with talk of the extensive reshoots that happened after Zack Snyder left and Joss Whedon took over, implies there’s a drastically version of the film floating around out there. In the wake of the film’s release, even more details about Justice League reshoots have surfaced.

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: the superhero team-up extravaganza Justice League.)
You can’t save the world alone, and saving the DCEU might be even more of a challenge. After Warner Bros. and DC finally found their footing with Wonder Woman, the superhero series trips over its own cape with the cacophonous Justice League. What should be a moment of triumph for the series – the long-awaited team-up of their signature heroes – instead feels like an uncomfortable obligation. It’s like a weekend visit to grandma – you don’t want to do it, there’s other things you’d really like to be doing, but you figure you make the effort because she’ll be gone soon.
As of this writing, Justice League is underperforming even more than anyone expected. The film failed to break the coveted $100 million domestic weekend opening gross, which will no doubt lead to a string of think-pieces pondering, “What went wrong with the DCEU?” With all this in mind, it almost feels cruel to hammer Justice League more. But this is the task at hand. I come not to praise Justice League, nor do I come to bury it. Instead, I want to try to get to the heart of what makes it tick. This is a garish, visually hideous work of pop art, yet I firmly believe it has its heart in the right place: it wants to tell a fun, entertaining story about a group of people coming together to solve a huge problem, and growing as they do so. But what it wants to do, and what it actually does are two very different things. This Justice League spoiler review will highlight what works best in the film, and what doesn’t work at all.
Spoilers follow, obviously.

Plus, there’s a new clip showing off more of the conversation that happens between Bruce Wayne and Arthur Curry when the billionaire vigilante goes searching for metahumans to help defend Earth against an impending threat.

If you thought the previous DCEU films were too dark, you’re in luck: there’s a new goofy Justice League TV spot that’s brimming with silliness! Ezra Miller‘s Flash is front and center here, and somehow Batman’s voice has gotten even worse. This is a truly strange spot, and if Justice League itself turns out to be this strange, it will certainly be the best DCEU film to date. Watch the Justice League TV spot below.
