Ray Fisher recently stepped onto the scene to play one of the most legendary and long-awaited comic book characters in Justice League. Despite its mixed reviews, audiences were raving about Fisher’s performance as Victor Stone/ Cyborg. As an all-star athlete who fell from grace after a near-fatal accident and was transformed into the mechanically inclined creation, Fisher was able to bring a sincere level of humanity to a role that was primarily CGI.
Since the film’s release, fans have been wondering about the potential Cyborg stand-alone film in the DC pipeline and while attending Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in New Jersey this past weekend, Fisher commented on what the biggest challenge would be for the solo venture.
Of course, to Fisher, the passion and voice of the fans hold far more weight to him.

One of the biggest talking points surrounding Justice League was the change in directors, which found Joss Whedon replacing Zack Snyder after he stepped down due to a family emergency. Whedon oversaw the remaining post-production, which included directing additional scenes written by himself. During his panel, Fisher touched on just what Zack’s initial vision was for Cyborg.
Fisher will soon be appearing the third season of HBO’s Emmy nominated miniseries True Detective alongside Academy Award winner Mahershala Alie, Sarah Gadon, Carmen Ejogo, and Mamie Gummer. He is rumored to appear in the untilted standalone Flash movie with Ezra Miller.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
