Ray Fisher Bulks Up For ‘Justice League’

screen-shot-2016-09-16-at-11-46-03-am

Justice League is now in the homestretch of principal photography, and director Zack Snyder is hard at work with his ensemble of actors. Obviously, during the busy production schedules in superhero films, the actors and actresses donning the capes and masks have to go pump some iron. We have seen the physical training that actors like Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, and even J.K. Simmons have committed to, and the results are truly paying off.

Now, it looks like Cyborg himself, Ray Fisher is hitting it hard at the gym, and wow does he look incredible. Fisher has a prominent background as a stage actor, having portrayed Muhammad Ali in an Off-Broadway production of Fetch Clay, Make Man. For that role he put on 20 pounds, so physical training for a part was definitely something he had experience with, and when it comes to preparing to play Victor Stone, he’s pulled it off.

We’ve only got a small sample size of what Fisher’s Cyborg is going to be like. He made a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice where his origins were briefly shown. We also saw Cyborg in all of his glory in the Justice League Comic-Con sizzle reel, in which he only delivered one line. Although we have a long time before we get a better impression on Fisher’s approach, at least we have a sense that he will have a great physical presence on screen, holding his own alongside giants like Ben Affleck.

Ray Fisher will also appear in The Flash film with co-star Ezra Miller and is set to have his own standalone Cyborg film as well. In the meantime, the world will be introduced to Victor Stone once Justice League opens in theaters on November 17, 2017.

    WOW, its very good to see these actors get in shape for the movies, he’s look great, I’m hoping the movie does very well

  • 12stepCornelius

    Whatever you happen to think about the DC movies, these actors are great for the amount of hard work they put in to play the characters.

    • SAMURAI36

      Yeah, there’s a meme that I saw that I’ve been trying to find, where they show the difference between DC actors and Marvel actors getting ready for their roles… The DC one shows people like Cavill, Affleck, and Gadot doing crazy amounts of exercise, while it shows the Marvel actors like Larsen, Bosewick and someone else sitting on the couch reading comic books.

      Hilarious.

      • Axxell

        Another difference: working out isn’t helping DCCU films be better…

    • Marquis de Sade

      Yeah, but in the case of these dceu actors, it’s an exercise in folly, considering the usual b.o. results reduces their efforts to a big fat hilarious MEH!

      • 12stepCornelius

        Maybe actually read up on the facts, hater.

        Winter Soldier:

        Budget: 170 million

        Gross: 714 million

        Suicide Squad:

        Budget: 175 million

        Gross: 720 million (estimated)

        So how about them box office numbers hmm?

        • Marquis de Sade

          That $175 million was the initial budget, but doesn’t reflect the tens of millions spent on reshooting the third act + the larger marketing costs…sides’, when you can only cite one minor (break even “maybe”) bright spot in the dceu oovre, you’ve inadvertently made my point.

          • Bill

            Marketing costs are cut out of the equation by sponsorships, tax breaks etc. There’s always a spot in the budget for reshoots. So that 175 is still the budget

          • Marquis de Sade

            Sorry, but you’re talkin’ bout pick-ups, or addin’ a scene or three…in the case of s.s., we’re talkin’ bout re-building sets and almost 2 months of extensive shooting.

          • Bill

            Haha you do realize that want true right. You’re literally trying to make a point using only rumors. Embarrassing

          • SAMURAI36

            Not to mention licensing, which has been MASSIVE for the past 2 DCEU films. With licensing alone, these films were literally money in the bank for them.

          • 12stepCornelius

            No dude, 175 mil is the budget. Hate the movie and be a troll all you want, facts are facts.

        • SAMURAI36

          LMAO, I have no idea who you are talking to (as I have whoever it is on block), but this was a great comeback. Hope you dropped the mic and shut off the lights after you were done.

  • Origami Rose

    Too bad its only going to be covered by mocap

    • SAMURAI36

      You must not be familiar with the fact that Cyborg can cover up his body with organics, to disguise himself.

      In fact, I’m pretty sure that you’re not.

      • Origami Rose

        your talking about comics this the movies. Covered by mocap, and im done. Gurl bye.

        • SAMURAI36

          You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. They said in several interviews, that Cyborg will have the ability to disguise himself in the film.

          Perhaps you should “gurl bye” yourself, for talking ignorantly.

          • Origami Rose

            Bye felicia. See you next year.

          • SAMURAI36

            Doubling down on your ignorance, I see. What I nice tactic. I’m sure that milkshake brings all the boys to your yard.

          • Origami Rose

    Not a single guy in Marvel looks like this.

  • SAMURAI36

    You know it’s bad when Commissioner Gordon looks like this:

    And your strongest actor in Marvel is a CGI monster, LOL.

  • Chris W

    What would we do without steroids?

  • SAMURAI36

    When you have a director that looks like this:

    Then your movies are definitely gonna look awesome.
