Ray Fisher, a stage actor known best for his portrayal of Muhammad Ali in the play Fetch Clay, Make Man, has been cast as Victor Stone a.k.a. Cyborg in the ‘Man of Steel’ sequel ‘Batman vs. Superman’. Cyborg will be a member of the Justice League, and while the role will be a minor one in this film it seems that Ray Fisher will have a more significant role as more films related to the Justice League are produced. Ray Fisher was also recently up for a role in Star Wars VII, though that isn’t likely to happen if Fisher is going to be busy as Cyborg. Report from IGN.com below:
Variety reports that “Victor Stone or Cyborg, while not a major part in the Batman-Superman feature, is a member of the Justice League, and the role will become much more significant role as Warner and DC develop more films related to the Justice League universe, sources confirm.”
IGN’s Jim Vejvoda has said that ‘Batman vs. Superman’ is looking more and more like a Justice League film in all but name, and I have to agree with him. I was expecting ‘Batman vs. Superman’ to be just Batman and Superman but now not only are Wonder Woman and Cyborg in the film but they have officially stated that Cyborg is a part of the Justice League; so the Justice League is either already in existence in this world, or it will be formed during this film. Either way this sounds like a Justice League movie to me. I really hope this movie is going to be good I’ve been wanting a live action Justice League movie for years.
