I guess this means Cyborg will be joining D.C. and Warner Bros.’ “Justice League” when that movie finally gets made in, oh, 2016 or thereabouts? We know this because actor Ray Fisher (if he’s unknown to you, that’s apparently because he’s a “theater actor,” whatever that means) has been cast to play Victor Stone in Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Batman vs. Superman.”
Victor Stone, in D.C. comics, is a gifted black athlete who gets himself turned into the superhero Cyborg — that is, part man, part machine. The good news is that he now can fire energy weapons out of his hands. The bad news? Well, there’s that whole part man/part machine thing.
We’re told that Fisher (pictured, left) won’t have a significant role in “Batman vs. Superman,” but the casting certainly paves the way for Victor Stone to eventually join the “Justice League” superteam movie that Warner has been pining to do ever since Marvel’s “The Avengers” made a gazillion bucks.
We’ll see how it goes. By that I mean, we’ll see if “Batman vs. Superman” makes money or not. Oh, who are we kidding. It will probably make buckets, despite going head-to-head with “Captain America 3.” Can’t we all just get along, guys?
Snyder’s “Batman vs. Superman” stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman (man, I still can’t wrap my mind over this casting), and “Fast and Furious'” Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Smarmy actor Jesse Eisenberg will play smarmy bad guy Lex Luthor, with Amy Adams reprising her role as spunky ace reporter Lois Lane.
Batman clashes with Superman (and Captain America), with Cyborg in the background in May 6, 2016.
