Ray Fisher in ‘intense talks’ to return as Cyborg

September 6th, 2020 by Marc Comments

We’ve known for a while now that Ray Fisher’s Cyborg was looking set to appear in the Flash movie at Warners (here) and we have more details today suggesting he is indeed in talks to appear.

You all may know that Fisher, Warners, DC, Geoff Johns and Joss Whedon are in a bit of a dispute right now – we aren’t covering it because we don’t want to get into stuff like that here – but because of this there has been doubt as to wether or not he would appear. But it seems that, in that department at least, all is cool… so far.

Fisher first appeared in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in the role before having it somewhat leashed out in Justice League, with reports saying that there’s much more Cyborg/Victor Stone stuff to be revealed in the upcoming Justice League Snyder Cut but it seems that, like the rest of the DCEU, he is set to continue for the foreseeable future.

To be fair, we always expected to see Victor and Barry Allen/Flash to meet again on screen, especially after this now iconic meeting on the small screen with The CW’s Flash in which Victor was name dropped:

The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit reports Fisher is “deep in talks/negotiations” to reprise the role (below).

Personally, I liked Fisher in the role and I would love to see him back to get the credit he deserves because, at this stage, he’s the only Justice League member not set up for his own movie – although waaaaaaaay back in the day he was set to have one – and Cyborg is certainly a character worthy of his own movie.

That said, these deputes have a tendency to not go well and  if anyone loses out it’ll be Fisher, so hopefully it all smooths out in whatever way these things must, allowing him to return to the role.

Meanwhile, what say you all? Would you like to see Fisher back in the role? Let me know your thoughts.

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….
