Ray Fisher: It Looks Like the Cyborg Movie Might Not Happen

Ray Fisher was initially set to appear in a Cyborg movie which was going to come out in 2020, but after the disappointment of Justice League, the future of the character was left up in the air. Now Fisher is talking like it's going to be very difficult to get a Cyborg movie off the ground, the way the DCEU is now.

Talking during NJ's Heroes & Villains FanFest (via ComicBook), Fisher gives an update on Cyborg:

"I don't know. I can't comment on that specifically, because they don't tell me anything until the very last minute. There's a ton of people making those kind of decisions behind the scenes. And it would be a very, very costly movie to make because it is so CGI heavy with Cyborg, because I'm the only member of the League that's not in a practical costume. You're going to be looking at $200 million just to make it. So it's one of those things you have to take into consideration. It's a numbers game for some people at the end of the day."

Though Justice League may not have been great overall, a lot of people agree that the casting for each member has been superb. Fisher actually plays the part of Victor Stone pretty well, and I think it would be a shame if we never got to see more of him in the future.

If a Cyborg movie can't be in the works, I'd actually be happy if the DCEU would make Teen Titans instead. A lot of people aren't a fan of the edgy direction the live-action series is going, and I think a full ensemble of Titans will be a bigger audience draw then just Cyborg.

Then again, DC is still trying to work out its kinks after Justice League. Maybe after 2019, they'll start taking more risks with their movies again. Everything from Man of Steel has just been a very low-reward gamble.

No release date has been set for Cyborg.
