The Batman vs. Superman movie casting may have had comic book fans on the brink of desperation up until now, but it looks like Zack Snyder and Co. may have gotten one thing right. Meet your new Cyborg – Ray Fisher. Now, Fisher is primarily a stage actor, although that has been known to work for past superhero movies and he has been cast as Victor Stone. That’s all we know at this point, according to Variety. Early reports claimed that Fisher was being considered for a part in Snyder's Star Wars Episode VII, but it looks like he was transferred to another big-budget Snyder production.

Fisher's background is mostly theatrical.

The character has a minor role in Batman vs. Superman, but this casting and Fisher’s appearance are intended to pave the way for future appearances by the superhero within the Justice League franchise that Warner Bros. is setting up for. A little background on Cyborg: the character made his first appearance in 1980's "DC Comics Presents" #26. In the "New 52" continuity, he's a high school athlete who, after getting caught in a S.T.A.R. Labs explosion, is given powerful bionic abilities that lead to him becoming a founding member of the Justice League.

So it does seem like Warner Bros. are planning on re-introducing Cyborg in a big way in a future movie. Fisher joins fellow cast members Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot and Amy Adams in Batman vs. Superman.Zack Snyder is directing from a script by David S. Goyer, based on a story by Goyer and Snyder. Production is already underway. The movie has a projected release date of May 6, 2016.
