We already knew that Ray Fisher was cast as Victor Stone for the DC Cinematic Universe and have just found out that he will be playing an important role not only in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ but both the ‘Justice League’ movies and his own stand alone ‘Cyborg’ movie in 2020. That’s right folks. We’re getting Fisher as Victor Stone in at least 4 films! How many he will star as Cyborg though still remains to be seen.
According to Fisher in a recent interview, “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film… Let me tell you, man, people are in for a hell of a treat.”
Now I’m curious as to if he didn’t know about the stand alone because DC had yet to decide upon it or if they were just keeping their actors in the dark. Honestly either option could be feasible at this point.
Fisher has had a lot of attention as of late and while he always wanted to push forward into acting beyond Broadway, this came as a bit of a surprise. “I’m a long-game player and didn’t see any of this happening until at least my 40s,” says Fisher. “It’s a huge honor, but a bit of pressure comes along with it. My mind is just boggled right now.” Well, if he is able to do an outstanding job here. I don’t think he’s going to have to continue waiting before getting offered even more juicy roles.
While there is no word on if he has been filmed at all yet, he has been meeting with much of the cast already . “I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill and Ezra Miller,” he revealed. “It was surreal. You get this idea of going to work on a Hollywood set as being really stressful and nerve-wracking. But it blew that stereotype away. If they did have stressful times, it wasn’t while I was there.”
Fisher seems confident in what they are doing and states, “Let me tell you, man, people are in for a hell of a treat.” This isn’t quite the strong words that director Zack Snyder went with when he said, “We’re killing the comic-book movie, we’re ending it.”
