With Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice set to come to theater in a few weeks, many more ideas fans have had have become reality or thrown out the window. Certain theories like the appearance of Doomsday and Darkseid have been confirmed (while Doomsday is confirmed, Darkseid is only believed to be shown in a nightmare sequence thanks to an image in Empire upon which is showing the Omega symbol, thus confirming that Darkseid is in the DC Cinematic Universe while not showing him, but instead alluding to him for future films (well played DC)).
While we now know who the seven Justice League members will be (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern (although not appearing in Batman vs Superman), Aquaman , Flash and Cyborg), we have barely anything on the League itself or how its members will be intertwined. The only thing for certain is that we will see Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg appear in the film. While they are probably only cameo roles, they are still an important part to creating the Justice League.

While Flash and Aquaman may or may not in touch with Lex Luthor, the main reason I am writing this post is for the character of Cyborg. While little is known about Ray Fisher's Cyborg, I have a theory about how he may appear in the film.
When Batman vs Superman was first announced way back in 2013, I, much like my DC fan boy counterparts, were eager for filming to start. So it came as a surprise that the first day of filming involved filming a football game. While Gotham City University takes on Metropolis State University, it will be interesting to see the players for each team.
In Justice League: War, the 2014 DC animated film, Vic Stone played football for a local high school and had prospects looking at him for college. Now it may be a long stretch but maybe, just maybe, one of the players on the Metropolis or Gotham City team is Vic Stone, pre-Black Zero event in Metropolis, and maybe, just maybe, the Black Zero event causes Vic Stone to become Cyborg (which my money is on). Also in Justice League: War, Vic Stone wears the jersey #7, and in that photo it appears that the QB for MSU is wearing the jersey #7. Am I saying that is Ray Fisher? No. I'm saying that it could possibly be the character of Victor Stone. But like all things this is just a theory and may turn out to be false. While no one can deny nor confirm this, I would argue that filming a football scene seems to fit the Cyborg origin. But who knows?
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on March 25th.
