Zack Snyder finds his Cyborg

Zack Snyder's follow-up to Man Of Steel (2013) has added another potential member of the Justice League with news that theatre veteran Ray Fisher has been hired to play Victor Stone, also known as Cyborg.

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.
