The DC Comics character Cyborg is going to be in Batman Vs. Superman, and according to Variety Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder have cast Ray Fisher in the role. The reason you don't recognize the name is because he's mostly known for his theater roles including the Broadway play Fetch Clay, Make Man in which he played Muhammad Ali.
According to the report Cyborg, whose real name is Victor Stone, will have "a much more significant role as Warner and D.C. develop more films related to the Justice League universe, sources confirm." The actor will join Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot and Jesse Eisenberg in the movie. There's been some talk already hinting that Cyborg could be in the sequel. In a previous interview with Cavill he expressed his excitement in seeing the character introduced in the franchise.
"On the extras on the Blu-ray, we're going to get the opportunity to see Zack's references to other aspects of the DC Universe. There's one obvious one which is now particularly obvious because of our next installment, which is involving Batman as well. We see Bruce Wayne Enterprises on the satellite in space. We also see some references to LexCorp. I actually have no further knowledge of this next story, but there's a good chance Lex is going to be introduced soon or at some stage. What really intrigued me was Dr. Emil Hamilton's connection to S.T.A.R. Labs. Cyborg I think would make a wonderful character and an incredible bridge between both superhumans and humanity in a different way toBatman. So I don't know where he's going to come in or if he's going to come in, but that's one I'm particularly excited about. Other references I'm not too sure on, but we'll see where those lead. Those with keen eyes will see them."
Congrats to Fisher for landing a role in a huge movie that could possibly change his life. Since the guy was cast in the role, he obviously has the talent to pull it off. I've included a photo of him below.
Batman Vs. Superman is set to be released on May 6th, 2016.
