‘Justice League’: Ray Fisher On Villain He Wants For ‘Cyborg’ Film

Justice League Ray Fisher CyborgWe are a mere couple of days away from witnessing the first big screen appearance of the Justice League. The film, which has received mixed, leaning towards positive, reviews on social media, had its Hollywood red carpet premiere last night. While tweets and posts have mentioned Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Ezra Miller’s Flash as standouts, not much has been said about Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. And when it has been discussed, the conversation has been lukewarm at best. But that has not stopped Fisher from thinking about his own Cyborg film.

So will an actual Cyborg movie happen?  Most likely it will depend on how well the character is received once Justice League has opened. Aside from Wonder Woman 2, Aquaman and Shazam!, Warner Bros. is keeping plans close to the vest. While appearing on Popcorn Talk, Ray Fisher admitted he doesn’t know if the film will happen, but he still has thoughts on which comic book movie villains he would like Vic Stone to face.

“With this kind of story, I’d love to see it be a little bit more intimate, a little bit more specific to Cyborg. There is a sort of Cyborg special that they had done years ago where he fights a group called Phantom Limbs, which is this mercenary group of cybernetically-enhanced individuals who are very much like him. I think seeing him take on people who have similar abilities but [are] a much more finely-tuned group of warriors – seeing how that all would turn out, I think would be really special.”

Not sure whom Fisher was taking about? Neither was I until I did a little digging around. The Phantom Limbs appeared in 2008’s DC Special Cyborg. They look like a natural choice for Cyborg’s foes, but we will have to first see what happens with Justice League.

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.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.

    I think he is already facing its greatest villian: Warner execs! Given the poor enthusiasm he is generating in JL (in a movie with very mixed reviews, Cyborg is one of the less talked about elements). I don’t believe we are going to see him in a solo movie. Fine with me. I’ve never liked it and never understood why a pretty forgettable character was brought into Justice League. He was okay in the Titans, that is his natural environment.
    Well, yes, I get the need to have a minority in the main DC team, but there are tons of other options, starting with John Stewart.

      Hank Pym gets a solo movie, why not Victor Stone?

      • Matias Gagliardone

        You realize Hank Pym doesn’t have a solo movie right?

        • Hector C

          Crap, you’re right…I meant Scott Lang

      • October_1985

        Hank Pym has pretty distinctive personality and powers, is a founder of the Avengers, also, the movie was about Scott Lang, who has had some memorable comic runs. Cyborg has always been B list and was only promoted to the JLA because DC was looking for mor diversity. He has no distinctive personality, is pretty unknown out of the comics, his powers aren’t that original, and by all accounts, his appareance in JL is nothing to write home about. I mean, I’m on the fence about watching Aquaman, I’m pretty excited about Shazam, but I have absolutely zero desire of watching a Cyborg movie. There are so many cool characters in DC, and giving him a movie is a waste.

      Cyborg is part of the New52 lineup. Plus, he’s an important part of the story since he has one of the 3 motherboxes.
