Out of some of the more ambitious takes on a character to make the jump from the pages of a comic book to live-action, the biggest in question looks to be that of Cyborg in the upcoming Justice League.
The character has made a slew of appearances in many of the animated series based on the Teen Titans comics and even in the most recent Injustice video games but has yet to make his breakthrough to the big screen. However, that all changes as stage actor Ray Fisher will be bringing the cybernetically enhanced Victor Stone in the upcoming DC team-up film.
In an interview with the Fortress of Solitude, Fisher reveals that this take on the character is still adapting to his cybernetic body and compares himself to that of Frankenstein’s Monster:
“He has been keeping himself in complete isolation as he attempts to deal with everything he’s lost: his body, his mother, and the life he once knew. On top of that, he must figure out who and what he is, now that he’s been transformed into a ‘monster’ by his all-too-absent father.”
The actor also goes into detail of the array of weaponry and technology at the character’s disposal with even some abilities that Cyborg isn’t even aware of:
“Due to the technology used to create Cyborg, his powers are ever-evolving,” Fisher said. “They include: the ability to interface with anything technological, flight, super-strength, hologram projection and a sophisticated weapon’s system … the list goes on! He has powers within him that even he isn’t yet aware of. Cyborg doesn’t need to eat or sleep, and whenever he encounters an issue that he’s not initially equipped to handle, his technology can transmogrify and immediately adapt to that situation.”
All things considering, it looks like we are getting an interesting interpretation of the character who although may not quite be at the “Booyah!” spouting level of confidence just yet but there is no doubt that the rest of his teammates in Justice League will bring out the very best out of the young hero.
