Ray Fisher Had No Idea There Would Be a Standalone 'Cyborg' Movie

Just last week, we got official word from Warner Bros. Pictures as to which DC Comics titles we would see hit the big screen over the next six years, and when those films would arrive. The films that were furthest down the line were a reboot of Green Lantern and a standalone movie focusing on the yet to be revealed Justice League character Cyborg. Now we already know that young actor Ray Fisher is playing the character with a small introduction in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and presumably a bigger role in the two-part Justice League. But Fisher had no idea that his character would get his very own movie too.

Speaking with EW about all of the big DC Comics cinematic universe news, Fisher said:

"I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. 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."

That's some cool news for Fisher to get (he was told hours before the announcement), but at the same time, I can't help but be a little skeptical of how Warner Bros. and DC Comics are putting these plans together. Obviously the Cyborg movie is six years away, but you would think that they would have talked to the actors who are bringing these characters to life about the plans they had for their future. The main reason for Fisher's lack of knowledge until the last minute is likely due to the fact that it's six years away. Plus, between now and then, the film could easily get scrapped if the rest of the DC Comics big screen plans don't go as well as the studio hopes. Stay tuned for any updates on the developing DC Comics titles.

    I find it hard to believe they'd pick an actor and not tell him that there's a possibility of a full-length movie..especially if you're serious about this.

    DC is playing a great big game of catch up, and they're doing it all wrong.

    According to the timeline posted on Firstshowing last week, the Cyborg movie won't come out until 2020 or something like that....there will be hover cars and Mr. Fusion by then.....

    He looks the part. I'll watch it. After the last 3-4 animated DC movies, Cyborg is becoming one of my favorites. Also, Injustice, where the two cyborgs fought by trying to hack each other was damn awesome.

    WB/DC handling this like a couple of guys who handle stuff poorly.
