A test screening was made which ended in disaster where from a hundred people surveyed only one person liked the film. Producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus tried to convince Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme to allow them to release the movie as it was. Instead, Van Damme convinced both producers to let him edit the film as he had done previously with Film/{{Bloodsport}} and asked them for 2 months, after which ''Cyborg'' was finally
released.

Back on the early and late 80's, Cannon Films was planning on making both a ''[[SpiderMan Spider-Man]]'' film and a sequel to ''Film/MastersOfTheUniverse''. Albert Pyun was at the helm of both projects, with plans of filming them back to back. However, after more than a dozen re-writes and an investment of two million in pre-production and very early production, Cannon Films began to lose money fast. It eventually lost the rights for both franchises.\\
