"Nothing is off the table," Ray Fisher on possibilities of Cyborg's return in a Teen Titan team-up
While Warner Bros is remaining tight-lipped when it comes to a solo Cyborg movie, Fisher appears less guarded as he opened up about reprising his part human, part machine role.
Over at MCU, it's evident that the creative heads are consciously working towards creating a roster of young superheroes in an attempt to keep the shared inter-connected cinematic universe moving ahead.
The DC/Warner Bros camp, on the other hand, is still in the early phases of shaping its unofficially titled DC Extended Universe.
In fact, even after a positive fan reception for their newer comic book adaptations in the last release, 'Justice League', the franchise is yet to give an official nod to characters like the Cyborg appearing in their own movies.
Portrayed by Ray Fisher in the 2017 DC ensemble movie, Cyborg is part human, part machine, who embarks on a completely different fate after a tragic accident transforms his life as the teenager, Victor Stone.
While the studios are maintaining a tight-lipped stance when it comes to a solo Cyborg movie, Fisher appears less guarded as he recently opened up about putting on his bionic parts for a team-up movie.
Speaking at a Q&A panel at the Wizard World Philadelphia over the weekend, the actor revealed that he is not ruling out the possibilities of reprising his role in the Teen Titan set-up under DCEU.
“Nothing is off the table," Fisher said at the panel, as per Comic Book, adding, "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 — I haven’t heard too much about it. But you’ll see them represented in the live-action version in that way, for sure.”
The Justice League actor was clearly referring to the web series titled "Titans", which is currently in the works and will be released via the streaming service, DC Universe. However, as far as a Cyborg role in the movie sphere is concerned, Fisher is all game, given that there's a good story to tell.
“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,” said the actor.
He adds: “It’s like, stories with consequence actually really appeal to me, where characters are going through recognizable struggle that I see in every day life. So if that translates to Titans or a Cyborg standalone or Justice League 2, as long as that’s there, I’m sold, man. I’m good with anything.”
I really hope with the Justice League bulking up with Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter, and Green Lantern John Stewart. We can please get more Cyborg on Teen Titans or just make him a permanent member. @marsanj47 pic.twitter.com/cfRegBYzp8— Rob.Reads.Comics (@Rob_readscomics) April 25, 2018
