New concept art from Zack Snyder's Justice League has been revealed, following the news that the Snyder Cut will be released on HBO Max in 2021. Cyborg's role in the new cut of the DC Comics story is expected to be much larger than that seen in the theatrical cut of the movie. In fact, Snyder has made it a point to call Ray Fisher's character the "heart" of this version of Justice League. Now, new looks at the character and some of the weapons which he body's technology can evolve into has been released by concept artist Jerad S. Merantz on his social channels.
Merantz revealed an album of Cyborg concept art on Instagram on Monday. "Can't wait to watch this guy's story," he wrote as the caption.
The photo of Cyborg in this concept art is consistent with designs which were seen during ComicBook.com's visit to the set of Justice League. Much of what was seen in the war room at that time was not ultimately used in the theatrical cut of the film as it was largely overhauled following Snyder's departure prior to the film's completion. Now, Snyder's original vision is being fulfilled, including a version of Cyborg more consistent with the image below.
