So this just happened..
Variety is reporting that actor Ray Fisher has joined the ever growing cast of the as yet untitled Man of Steel sequel as Victor Stone a/k/a Cyborg. (It’s ok if you just said, “Who?”. We didn’t know who he is either until Googled him either.) Fisheris more well known as a stage actor. His recent roles including the Broadway play “Fetch Clay, Make Man,” in which he portrayed Muhammad Ali. He apparently is also being considered for a role in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.
No word yet if we will see Cyborg in the story, or if events in the story will set up Victor to eventually become Cyborg in a possible Justice League film.
Fisher joins the Batman-Superman cast that already includes Henry Cavill(Superman), Ben Affleck(Batman), Jesse Eisenberg(Lex Luthor), Gal Gadot(Diana/Wonder Woman), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and Amy Adams(Lois Lane).
The as yet untitled Batman-Superman feature hits theatres on May 6, 2016.
