Ray Fisher offers a closer look at Victor Stone/Cyborg's new action figure from Justice League. After a brief appearance in Batman v Superman, the actor is joining the hero set of the DC Extended Universe properly this year in the ensemble epic alongside Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Superman (Henry Cavill), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ezra Miller (The Flash).
Cyborg is brought to life by his own father, Dr. Silas Stone (Joe Morton), who accidentally merged one of the mysterious (and dangerous) Mother Boxes with his son in an effort to save him. In the pages of the comic books, the character is mostly associated with the Teen Titans, but the DCEU's version establishes him as one of the founding members of the League.
Fisher has recently posted a closer look on his character's Justice League action figure on his official Twitter account hyping up fans' anticipation for his character's big on-screen splash and look. "BORGLIFE™ is back in the building...and this time I brought backup!
#BORGLIFE #ForThePeople," he has written in the caption.

DC fans have been quite divided on the aesthetics of Cyborg since his first appearance in Dawn of Justice and the subsequent trailers for Justice League. Some did not necessarily like how Fisher was integrated with Cyborg's mechanical part - drawing comparisons to the look of Michael Bay's Transformers. Although to be fair, it's best to reserve final judgment until we actually see how the character looks like moving and fighting on the film.
Following Fisher's debut as Cyborg in Justice League, he is slated to go off on his first solo adventure. The original timeline set by Warner Bros. positions the film for an April 2020 rollout, but development for it has been rather quiet and slow - begging the question if the official schedule still sticks. Further, a recent rumor points to the film studio possibly reshuffling their releases with brand new launch dates for 2020 - without the supposed April launch for the Cyborg standalone.
Nevertheless, we can expect more official news in the near future once Warner Bros. finally releases details regarding the aforementioned film. Before that, though, you can catch Fisher and the rest of the Justice League cast later this week in Comi-Con International: San Diego where Warner Bros. and DCEU will host a panel of Saturday at Hall H.
