Ray Fisher talks about playing Cyborg in DC’s movie universe

October 23rd, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ray Fisher, the stage actor confirmed as Cyborg in Warners’ and DC’s Justice League movie universe, has talked about Batman V Superman and his experience on set… and possibly confirms a lineup?

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Fisher said that he was unaware of the solo movie set for 2020 until almost the same time as the rest of the world: “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.”

Interestingly, he also confirms that he has finished his work on Dawn of Justice and that he did work with several of the Justice League actors: “I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill and Ezra Miller. 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.”

So, the implication is that he was onset with Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Could this confirm what we suspected all along? That the Justice League will be (somewhat) formed by the end of the next movie? Or perhaps they’ve filmed a post credits tease? Either way, with the exception of Cavill and Miller – Superman and The Flash – we reckon it’s a good chance we’ll have an iconic shot at some point in the proceedings.

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….
