Though he'll only play a relativity minor part in the new film, Cyborg is definitely part of the Justice League, which certainly adds more fuel to the speculative fire that the new Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman outing is either set to spin off various members of the DC superhero organisation for their own films or is a stealth Justice League film in its own right. Elements of Cyborg's background were already layered into Man Of Steel (the mention of S.T.A.R. Labs for example), so he might get a more prominent role down the line.
Fisher, who was also recently mentioned as one of those in contention for a lead in Star Wars: Episode VII, has been better known for his work on the stage than the screen, drawing attention for playing Muhammad Ali in Fetch Clay, Make Man.
He joins a cast that already includes Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter. Snyder is currently deep in pre-production for the film, which is set to hit our cinemas on 29 April 2016 ahead of its 6 May 2016 debut across the pond.
