Although it was announced as part of Warner Bros.’ initial slate of films for the DC Extended Universe, we’ve heard absolutely nothing in the way of movement on the planned Cyborg solo movie, which was originally scheduled to arrive in 2020.
Just recently, actor Ray Fisher dismissed speculation that he was no longer involved with the DCEU, and now the Justice League star has been chatting about Cyborg’s future at the Heroes & Villains FanFest in New Jersey, where he admitted that he’s unsure if the solo movie will ever see the light of day.
“I don’t know. I can’t comment on that specifically, because they don’t tell me anything until the very last minute. There’s a ton of people making those kind of decisions behind the scenes. And it would be a very, very costly movie to make because it is so CGI heavy with Cyborg, because I’m the only member of the League that’s not in a practical costume. You’re going to be looking at $200 million just to make it. So it’s one of those things you have to take into consideration. It’s a numbers game for some people at the end of the day.”
It had been reported that there were plans to include Fisher’s Cyborg in The Flash movie, although the project has been reworked several times since then, and it remains to be seen whether that’s still on the table. Throw in the recent casting of Joivan Wade as Victor Stone in Doom Patrol, and Cyborg’s big screen future certainly seems unclear at present.
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 reunites Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope alongside J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard (The Danish Girl) as Mera and Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Steppenwolf.
