Justice League will not only serve as the first film to bring the biggest names in DC Comics together but also a launching point for the upcoming slate in the DC Films universe. For Cyborg actor Ray Fisher, it's just the beginning.
Speaking to ComicBook.com during a press event in London in promotion of Justice League, Fisher opened up a bit about his future in the role. He can't spare too many details about what's next for his character or when audiences can expect to see him again after the ensemble flick but spoke on what he could.
"Yes, I do," Fisher said when asked if he knows when he'll reprise the role. "I know the next film that I'll be Cyborg on."
As for the upcoming Cyborg film, which is supposed to be on track for a 2020 release date, Fisher does not have details he "can share specifically" but has a vision for the film he is eager to discuss. It's a trend among the cast members who are excited about their next appearances in the DC world.
"Things are in development," Fisher said. "If I had my druthers, I think a Cyborg standalone would be a slightly more intimate story. One of the things that I always think is interesting with these sort of universes, is whenever there's a world threatening crisis, it always makes you wonder, 'Where are the other members of the group? Why didn't they show up?' I think finding an organic way to explain why these characters have to have their solo mission."
Fisher wants his film to truly standalone, independent of the other heroes which his Victor Stone shares a universe with. "Obviously, Aquaman, most of his stuff takes place under water," Fisher said. "If Superman were to go to the deepest reaches of space, not many people could go with him. Those kinds of things could happen and it would make sense as to why the other heroes wouldn't be able to tag along."
For now, fans can look forward to Fisher's first true role as Cyborg in Justice League when it hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
