On Tuesday, DC took a big leap towards revealing crucial details regarding their upcoming Justice League movie. In DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, a little time was devoted to introducing a few key characters, alongside footage and a touch of a character bio from the actors themselves.
As I'm sure you know, one DC character Warner Bros. is adopting for Justice League is Cyborg, otherwise known as Victor Stone. I'll spoil it for you: Ray Fisher looks awesome as the Teen Titans favorite!
Below you'll see a short video in which DC Entertainment CCO, Geoff Johns and Cyborg actor, Ray Fisher discuss Cyborg. Included is some awesome concept art depicting Fisher as Cyborg.
Cyborg first appeared in DC comics back in the 1980s and has since become a fan favorite, especially for fans of the Teen Titans series, in which Cyborg was a prominent feature.
The character has since been written in as a founding member of the Justice League, a vital change made during DC's 2011 reboot. The New 52 Cyborg is bigger and more badass than ever!
But who is Cyborg?
Now, the video linked above does a hell of a job explaining who Cyborg is, but I'll run through it anyway. Victor Stone was an athlete who suffered a horrible accident and became part machine. Now a founding Justice League member, Cyborg is hugely popular; it'll be great to see him as part of DC's Justice League!
More importantly, as revealed in the video above: Cyborg has pretty damn good Internet access and is a "technopath," meaning he can interface with technology. In an age where the Internet controls everything, I can imagine Cyborg will make for an interesting character within the DC cinematic universe.
Ray Fisher is set to appear in Justice League Part One, directed by Zack Snyder on November 17, 2017, followed by his own movie on April 3, 2020. I'm pretty damn excited for this one!
