The Justice League in many ways is a band of misfits. Each superhero with completely different capabilities and personal strengths, united by their common goal to do good. Within this group of wildly different personalities, Ray Fisher (Cyborg) thinks his character finds a kindred spirit in Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
In an interview with Geek Magazine, Fisher talked about why he feels the two have a lot in common within the greater team, and how their dual lives sort of help them to understand one another:
“I feel that Victor and Aquaman are probably the most similar in that they’re two individuals struggling with living basically half in one world, half in another. We could say the same thing about all of the characters, but specifically Aquaman being half-human and half-Atlantean, and Cyborg being half-human and half-robot. I think there is a recognition between them where they may not necessarily get along, and they may not necessarily trust one another at first, but it’s that thing when you see someone who’s like you, and when you resent yourself to begin with, it could create that sort of conflict between them. There is also a very deep level of respect at the same time.”
Certainly, we will find out more when we see Justice League, but it is interesting that these two additional team members find themselves in similar situations and can use that bond to understand one another.
The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
Justice League opens in theaters on November 17, 2017.

5 Greatest Batman Comic Book Crossovers
Batman is one of DC’s most versatile characters. He fits well in dark stories like The Killing Joke just as much as he does in campy stories like Batman ’66. Not only does he fit well in every corner of the DC Universe, fighting alongside the Justice League on Earth or taking on Darkseid on Apokolips, but he also fits in different comic book universes.
Over the character’s long history, there have been multiple crossovers that have taken the Caped Crusader to new lands. He’s gone up against everyone from the Punisher to the Predator and even fought alongside fan favorite characters like The Spirit and Hellboy. No matter where he goes, Batman is still a great character who can handle himself no matter where he ends up. Batman has scared enough people in the DC Universe and Bruce Wayne has seduced enough young ladies, so it only makes sense that he expands his reach every once in a while.
