Not Superman, Ray Fisher wants Cyborg to cross paths with Kryptonian antagonist, Brainiac
Meanwhile, Cyborg's next appearance has also been a source of some serious speculation. Previously it was believed that the superhero would headline a solo movie
In the world of DC Comics, Brainiac, who is also referred to as the Brain InterActive Construct by the Kryptonians, is the oldest and biggest nemesis of none other than Superman. But if Ray Fisher has it his way, he would want a different member of the Justice League to fight the green humanoid in an epic face-off.
Speaking at the Wizard World Philadelphia during a panel last weekend, the 30-year-old actor shared his thoughts when it comes to his superhero spot in the DCEU, as the part human part machine, Cyborg. And as it turns out, Fisher is very much interested in seeing his character pack a punch against Brainiac, also known as Milton Fine.
"I would take Brainiac, from Superman," the Justice League actor told his legion of fans, adding, "For sure. Cyborg and Brainiac? I think that would be a really cool match up."
While the suggestion certainly piques our curiosity, it might be a little far-fetched at the moment to picture a situation where Brainiac skips the Kryptonian legend to fight Fisher's Cyborg.
For the uninitiated, the iconic supervillain in question, was created by Otto Binder & Al Plastino and made his first appearance in Action Comics #242 in July 1958. The computerized villain also happens to an android hailing from the planet Colu. Amongst his many antagonizing deeds though, the most prominent ones includes the destruction of Superman's home planet, Krypton, and shrinking of the city of Kandor.
Meanwhile, Cyborg's next appearance has also been a source of some serious speculation. Previously it was believed that the superhero would headline a solo outing, with Fisher teasing that "the cast should be diverse in everything we do."
But more recently, the DC star has also shown interest in an ensemble set-up, especially if it reunites Cyborg with team Teen Titans.
"I know they have a Titans show that’s coming out in DC’s own universe that they’re doing, some sort of online deal," the actor said while discussing the possibilities.
“The only thing that I am looking for as far as they’re concerned is stories that are grounded and stories that move me... And that’s what kind of drew me to the DC Universe as opposed to some other things that were going on,” Fisher added.
