Many fanboys may be happy to learn that DC Comics character Victor Stone, aka Cyborg, has been added to the Batman-Superman movie. Actor Ray Fisher will play the young Justice League member.
Fisher is known primarily as a stage actor. His previously credits include playing Muhammad Ali in the off-Broadway production of “Fetch Clay, Make Man,” and appearing in the Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey productions of “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Macbeth.”
For those unfamiliar with the character Victor Stone is best known as a member of the Teen Titans. Following the DC reboot he is now a member of the Justice League. The characters origins are he was an athletic teenager who was horribly injured during an accident at his scientist fathers lab. To save his son the father replaces his missing body parts with robotic ones. His increased athletic abilities and extreme knowledge of technology are his assets as a superhero.
While he will not be a major character in the film it said the role will be more significant as Warner Bros. and DC develop more films related to the Justice League Universe.
The untitled Man of Steel sequel is planned to be release in May of 2016. Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot and Amy Adams have already been cast. Zack Snyder is directing from a script by David S. Goyer, who came up with the story alongside Snyder.
