In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, newcomer Ray Fisher talks about being taken by surprise by Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ planned stand-alone Cyborg movie.
“I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character,” Fisher tells EW. “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… Let me tell you, man, people are in for a hell of a treat.”
‘Cyborg’ tells the story of Victor Stone (Fisher) whose body parts are replaced by advanced prosthetics after he’s injured in an accident at S.T.A.R. Labs, a high-tech research and development facility, introduced in ‘Man of Steel’.
