As the character-specific promotions for Justice League continue, this week sees Wonder Woman and Cyborg join forces. Two weeks ago, the marketing for Justice League took a new approach to familiarizing audiences with the cinematic versions of DC's big heroes. Each character from the film was promised their own week of focus, starting with Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman and continuing on with Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash.
Following the conclusion to 'Flash Week', that leaves Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Batman (Ben Affleck) and possibly Superman (Henry Cavill) to get through before Justice League hits theaters. However, it turns out that two of those superheroes will actually be sharing a week together.
The Justice League Twitter posted a new video with Gadot and Fisher kicking off 'Wonder Woman & Cyborg Week'. AT&T also has a fresh promo for Cyborg, featuring all-new footage of the character in the film. Fisher outlines his character in the video, in between some moments that tease Cyborg and Wonder Woman will have a connection in Justice League. Meanwhile, the promo below features some playful banter between the two actors and hints at more reveals to come.

On the one hand, combining Wonder Woman and Cyborg makes sense, given that Diana Prince is a far more widely-known character than Victor Stone - and thus, will bring more attention to the latter. On the other hand, having the only female and black members of the Justice League (respectively) share a week might rub some fans the wrong way, when it comes to being inclusive with promotion for the film.
Moving on - the new footage of Cyborg shows off his powerful abilities. Given his connection to the technology of Apokolips, having Cyborg on the team will certainly come in handy. While it appears that Batman recruits Aquaman and The Flash in the film, it seems Wonder Woman will be the one responsible for seeking out Cyborg. As such, they could have a deeper connection in the film, further explaining their team-up this week.
While this week will focus on both heroes, las week featured plenty of new tidbits regarding Cyborg himself. We learned that Aquaman and Cyborg won't get along at first, though they will eventually develop a mutual appreciation for one another. More information on Cyborg's powers in Justice League was also revealed, teasing some upgrades from the comics. Hopefully, this week will feature some new footage of Cyborg in action, as he hasn't been in the spotlight as often as his fellow heroes in Justice League.
