Looks like those rumors a few months ago were true… former Teen Titan and current Justice Leaguer Cyborg is also joining the cast of the as-yet-untitled Batman Vs. Superman movie from Zack Snyder and writer David S. Goyer, which really at this point should probably be called Justice League (I mean, three’s company, but four is a team, right?) So who is playing Victor Stone, former football player turned mechanized superhero? According to an exclusive report in Variety, the part has gone to actor Ray Fisher, an actor best known for theater roles like the Broadway play Fetch Clay, Make Man, in which he played Muhammad Ali. Fisher was also one of several actors who was also recently up for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII.
According to the original story, Cyborg isn’t going to be a big part of this movie, and it does sound like it might be a cameo setting up a future Justice League movie, which will no doubt follow up Batman Vs. Superman. If that is indeed that case, expect a Justice League line-up that resembles the current New 52 line-up of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Flash, and maybe Aquaman. Sorry, Martian Manhunter, but I’d bet real money that Cyborg just replaced you on the big screen like he did in the comics. Maybe next time, Mr. J’onzz.
