While fans already saw the pieces of Victor Stone which would be turned into Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there will be some time to reflect on the character's humanity, including a look at Stone as a civilian in the forthcoming Justice League movie.

That's according to costume designer Michael Wilkinson, who explained to reporters during a recent visit to the set of Justice League that Cyborg has the ability to cloak his appearance so that he can function in the world.

"Practical [effects] would be this, the face is Ray Fisher," Wilkinson said while pointing out "empty" spaces in the costume. "We see him a lot also as a civilian. You can see the here at the top is how he disguises himself in the world. We'll see some sweatsuit action."

In Geoff Johns's 2011 reboot of Justice League, the team's first major story dealt with battling off Darkseid and the hordes of Apokolips. In the context of that story, it was during that battle Vic Stone was injured, and a Mother Box used to replace pieces of him and save his life. Ultimately, that Mother Box was key to sending Darkseid and his Parademons back to Apokolips.

Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder, is filming now. It also stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as The Flash. Spider-Man villain Willem Dafoe has joined the cast as Atlantean soldier Vulco, while Amber Heard will appear as Mera. J.K. Simmons has joined as Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon, while Amy Adams is expected to reprise her role as Lois Lane.

The movie is set to hit theaters on November 17, 2017 -- the twenth-fifth anniversary of the release of Superman #75, the best-selling finale to "Doomsday!: The Death of Superman."
