A rumor back in February hinted at the possibility of Cyborg appearing in the Man of Steel sequel. At the time, the thinking was Warner Bros. was looking at trying to cast Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for the role. Well now The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Warner Bros. has found their Cyborg and it isn’t Johnson.
It is reported that Ray Fisher, who apparently is best known for portraying a young Muhammad Ali in the stage production Fetch Clay, Make Man, is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to play Victor Stone, aka Cyborg. With the movie already featuring Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, it is looking like this really will be a Justice League origins of some kind.
Man of Steel 2, “Batman vs. Superman,” will be directed by Zack Snyder, will star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne and is slated to hit theatres on May 6, 2016. (Source: THR)
