During an interview with Entertainment Weekly Ray Fisher who was cast to play Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stated he had no idea that Warner Bros. had plans for his character in getting his own solo film until producers called with the heads-up only hours before Warner Bros. publicly revealed its slate their DC Comics Cinematic Universe.
“I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” says Fisher, who was hired in March to cameo as Cyborg in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. “When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn’t think I’d be getting my own stand-alone film.”
He also went on to talk about who he’s met from the cast and his thoughts on what fans can expect from Zack Snyder.
“I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill and Ezra Miller,” Fisher says of the actors who respectively portray Superman and the Flash within the DC Cinematic Universe. “It was surreal. You get this idea of going to work on a Hollywood set as being really stressful and nerve-wracking. But it blew that stereotype away. If they did have stressful times, it wasn’t while I was there.”
In regards to Snyder Fisher had this to say:
“Let me tell you, man,” Fisher says with a laugh, “people are in for a hell of a treat.”
