Ray Fisher will take on the role of the half human, half machine superhero Cyborg of the DC Extended Universe "JusticeLeague".
A lot of DC fans who are also very familiar with the comic book version of "Justice League" are now asking how Ray Fisher prepared for his role. How did he come to know Cyborg especially if he has not appeared in any of DC's superhero movies?
Fisher answered this question at the Rhode Island Comic Con where he and Wonder Woman Gal Gadot sat down and talked about their respective roles. Comic Book reported what Fisher has to say about Cyborg and what inspired him the most in taking in this amazing role.
Fisher said that he actually grew up with "Teen Titans" and was familiar about Cyborg together with the young Robin, Firestar and the rest of the "Teen Titans" cast.
"I was in the middle of high school," Fisher said. "[and] I was like, 'this show speaks to me' because there were all these characters going through these real teen issues while also saving the world. The extent of my knowledge was just about that."
Fisher was given a ton of information about Cyborg as soon as he was cast and so he ended up being very familiar with the character's comic book version. He said that the "Teen Titan" version was very different from the comic book one and he now knows Cyborg like "the back of my hand." He also admits that he is ready for a "darker" Cyborg for the movie.
Cinema Blend mentioned that casting Ray Fisher for the role of Cyborg could add a bit of fun to an otherwise dark comic book counterpart. Cyborg has been defined as a damaged hero who is known in real life as Vic Stone.
Stone was a part of his parents' experiment which cost the life of his mother. His father placed cybernetic implants on him to enhance his IQ and to give him robotic super strength, among other powers. Rumor has it that DC may even allow Fisher to become the fast-talking Cyborg that fans of his generation came to know about "Teen Titans."
Fans can catch a glimpse of what Ray Fisher is as Cyborg from the official trailer of "Justice League" out now. Cyborg will have his own movie which is scheduled for release on April 3, 2020.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
