Does anyone else need a score to keep track of all the Justice League members appearing in Batman vs. Superman? Variety broke the news that stage actor Ray Fishers has been picked by Warner Brothers to appear in Batman vs. Superman as Cyborg (aka Victor Stone). Fisher, who was rumored to be in contention for Star Wars: Episode VII, will join Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot and Amy Adams.
Warner Brothers did not comment on the story.
So who is Cyborg?
According to the Official DC Comics Bio: “Nowadays, everyone’s juggling an offline and online persona. But only one hero is a literal marriage of technology and man. Half human, half machine, Victor Stone is Cyborg, a digital and physical tank—and a true superhero for the modern age.
Although a star athlete, Vic Stone only yearned for his father’s approval. But Dad was too focused on his scientific career to notice… until the day Vic became his greatest experiment. After Vic suffered a grave injury, his father saved him by replacing over half his body with cybernetic parts.
Now Cyborg is plugged into every computer on Earth, and no firewall—or brick wall—can keep him out. While his cybernetic enhancements provide superhuman strength, speed, and endurance, that same technology destroys his chances to live as a professional athlete. Now flourishing in the digital realm, Vic is desperately alone in the physical world—and still longs for his father’s affection. Hungry to find purpose again, he fights alongside the World’s Greatest Super Heroes”.
