Cyborg star Ray Fisher thinks Affleck is still Batman… and is Henry Cavill teasing a Superman return?

February 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

Amid the reports that Ben Affleck is ‘finished’ as Batman, we still have a belief that he’s not finished but rather stepping back to let a different story be told… for now.

Our understanding of Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie has always been about a younger Batman in his earlier days going up against what would become his Rogues Gallery, remember the brilliant ‘20 years in Gotham’ line in Batman V Superman? Well, that.

And it seems we’re not alone as actor Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in Justice League and briefly in BvS, seems of the same opinion: “It’s my understanding that it’s going to be a younger take on Batman,” Fisher says.

“So that’s not to say that our older version of Batman can’t show back up.”

In fact, Fisher seems confident that both Affleck AND Henry Cavill’s Superman will be back:  “I haven’t spoken to them specifically about what the deal is. First and foremost I’m hoping that everybody is happy and content. That’s my major thing.”

Interestingly, speaking of Cavill, the actor posted this below image on his Instagram earlier today. getting fans’ hopes up… could he returning to the Man of Steel? After the story about James Gunn yesterday, it seems that Warners are still looking to bring the big blue boyscout back.

And what of Cyborg’s standalone? Well, fisher had this to say: “I think everyone’s trying to figure it out. Aquaman doing as well as it has at the box office, being the highest grossing DC film, it’s invigorated fans and I’m sure it’s invigorated the studio, but I haven’t heard anything specific about Cyborg just yet. So stay tuned, hopefully soon.”

So there’s still hope… and we all know that’s what the S stands for on Superman’s chest.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
