It looks like Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller are still in as Warner Bros’ Cyborg and Flash

Some hopeful news today for fans of the DCEU as two of the Justice League stars who we feared may be gone are looking like they may not be.

Sadly, I’m not talking about Henry Cavill or Ben Affleck here but rather Cyborg and Flash star Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller.

So, firstly, Ray Fisher, who attended Celebrity Fan Fest las week, was asked if he was set to put the chrome on again and the actor replied that that was a little above his pay grade but, he added: “I don’t think my time is over yet.”

No doubt there’s more going on behind the scenes than we know but it certainly seems like the star is in some sort of talks or negotiations to return as Victor Stone AKA Cyborg in some capacity in the DCEU.

And then Miller, who last we heard was attempting to bring his own story for the Scarlett Speedster to DC/Warners, has more of The Flash in his future.

According to Variety “will get his DC Universe stand alone film as soon as he wraps up his work on the Harry Potter spinoff series Fantastic Beasts.”

Presumably that’s the next movie (there’s still three to come) which means it’s unlikely filming will even begin on The Flash before 2021.

While it’s likely Flash will get his own movie at some stage – likely it will be used to bring Robert Pattinson into the current DCEU, replacing Ben Affleck at this stage, there has always been doubt about Cyborg getting his own movie, but rather looking likely to be a sidekick character in future DC movies which is a shame because Fisher is a great actor and Cyborg has the potential to be a massive character in the cinematic universe.

I’ll keep you posted as I hear more, gang.

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….
