Back in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, we got a brief first look at Ray Fisher as Cyborg and now we are a few months away from his role in Justice League. Victor Stone aka Cyborg was originally a member of the Teen Titans, created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. Then in 2011 he was established as a founding member of the Justice League during DC’s New 52 reboot as well as in last year’s Rebirth launch. Most Cyborg fans remember him from the Teen Titans animated series that was created by Glen Murakami that ran on Cartoon Network from 2003 to 2006 and was voiced by Khary Payton (who still voices him on Teen Titans Go!). So could there be any similarities between the film and animated version of the character?
Fisher spoke to fans while attending the AsiaPOP Comicon in Manila, and he talked about some of the differences between his film version of the character and the one from the animated series via a live-blog on Twitter reported by comicbook.com:
“He’s a very real and grounded character and that’s something I found very interesting to bring to the table, I love the cartoon, but this is a different Cyborg, for a new era.”
Even with those changes he still plans on using Cyborg’s signature “Booyah!” catchphrase since he says he was a huge fan of the animated Cyborg, “I was a huge fan of that Cyborg growing up as a kid because that was when the original cartoon show was on, and Khary Payton is a master at what he does,” he said.
Based on what we have seen in the trailers, we already know that we are in for a grounded approach for Cyborg and if there is anything we have learned from Zack Snyder DC films it’s that his interpretation of characters is a lot darker than what we are used to, so don’t be surprised if he has a more robotic feel. We are only a couple of months away from his part in Justice League, but he is slated for a solo film in 2020. What are your thoughts on Cyborg? Chime in below!
