Batman vs. Superman Casts Victor Stone aka Cyborg

Justice League DC Comic Book

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.”

Ray FisherVictor 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.

    this movie is going to take so long to come out, that we all wouldn’t care about it.. Who care about superman and batman, they team up all the time..It been done hundred of time.. i really don’t care, their so much better movie coming out anyway. This movie have been overdue so long ago. Superheroes team is so common now a day, with the new guardian of the galaxy, and average 2 age of ultron.

      That’s like saying who cares about the Avengers because there have been like 50 versions of the team, and currently 3 Avengers teams in the comics. The reason people care is that this ISN’T the comics. It’s NEVER been done on the big screen before. It’s not just 2 heroes teaming up, or vs each other it’s 2 of the most ICONIC heroes in the WORLD!!

    This movie has already two big problems:
    -it is a Man of Steel sequel
    -they are putting to many charachters in it. This one is shared with most of nowadays superheroes movies. After Avengers, they think that the key of succes is many charachters in one movie. What they don’t understand is that in that case it worked because there was a plan behind it and a 5 years planification through different movies.

    This movie is probably going to suck. Like Amazing Spiderman 2 is probably going to suck (and is a shame, because I wouldn’t have given a dime for the first one and in the end I actually liked it). X-Men DOFP is probably going to work: even if not intended it features charachters that we got the chance to know in other movies, so…

      ah, a MoS hater. As for adding characters, DC doesn’t exactly have much to stand on, or introduce characters in. MoS was their first successful CBM outside the bat universe. So Using the MoS sequel as a spring board for characters makes sense. I doubt we’ll be getting a lot going on character wise. Vic Stone will probably just be playing some football for Metropolis U, and WW has already been said to be in it about as much as Black Widow was in IM2. Sure we’ll see her but the movie won’t focus on her.
      As for Amazing I have faith in that simply because the director seems to really get that world. Rhino seems to be a glorified cameo, which is fine. Every villain doesn’t have to be fleshed out right away. it also gives them a reason to hate Spidey, if they’ve already been caught once. What I liked about Spectacular Spiderman the series was that we got to see these villains as low level thugs first, and that’s what we get with Rhino. not every villain should be tragic, sociopathic, egomaniacal, our out to destroy everything. Some just want to make money.

    The DC needs to learn a thing or two from Marvel you need to offer hidden scene and may possibly introduce new Characters there. At least that would make people talking about it rather than waiting for it.

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      Pretty much what they’re doing. I love how everyone assumes that these characters are getting major roles. At the most we’ll see Victor Stone playing some football for Metropolis U.

        I know my dude. Its weird how everyone thinks all of these character’s outside of Batman and superman will have huge parts. And people obviously are not reading the article saying its a small part that could lead to a major role in the future JL movie. You know what it is? Everyone has been blinded by marvel and what they have done and think everyone else should follow suit. That’s not true, DC does not have to do that, they can do the complete opposite, if the story makes since. I’m just tired of the hate, you know?

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          Exactly. I mean if they did follow the Marvel model people would call them copy cats. DC can build shared universe by sowing seeds by having cameos. A highlight reel showing Vic Stone of Metro U and then later saying the football star was greivously injured would suffice. Or even if they just have him highlighted at a game, and his injury happens in the JL movie like in JL:War, but they had at least introduced him. Same with WW having a Black Widow level cameo, which could work as long as it’s written well (don’t ask me how as I don’t know what their story is ) But it could wor. Haters gonna hate, but at least wait til there’s something to hate first.

            Since when do they need to wait? Michael Keaton had an entire campaign launched against his removal as Bats before a single picture of the movie was released. The less said about the pre Dark Knight Heath Ledger fiasco the better.

          • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

            LMAO! The Heath Ledger Clause is always my defense.

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            This shit here is why Democracy is a terrible idea, majority might rule, but majority is wrong most times.

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Lol it’s hilarious to see so called experts get their asses kicked by the wisdom and insight of Dedpool.
    BTW Nix when Ben Affleck knocks Batman out of the park I expect some humble pie eating from you.

      Saying I can’t “wrap my mind” around it doesn’t mean I think it was bad (or good) casting. It just means … I can’t wrap my mind around it.

      • Aegon the Conqueror

        Why not, the guy looks friggen just like Bruce Wayne. he can obviously do tortured soul (the Town) as well as charming (argo). Seems like a no brainer to me.

        • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

          I think he means he won’t be able to see it until he sees it. Not saying he can’t do it, just not an obvious choice to him. Me either. I’m all for it though, and I definitely see him as Bruce, but the Batman, is harder. I will have to see the suit and hear the voice.

  • Juggernaut

    Okay let’s get to the real question when will Green Lantern, Flash and Aquaman being cast in this movie and who should play them?

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Dedpool

      They won’t and I dunno. LOL

      • Aegon the Conqueror

        Anyone except Ryan Reynolds. Nothing against the man, but I 1 I try to pretend like Green Lantern didn’t happen and 2 when it comes to comic books I want him to focus on making Deadpool happen.
