Ray Fisher is interested in starring as Cyborg in a Teen Titans movie. Warner Bros. once had a grand plan in place for their unofficially titled DC Extended Unvierse, but things have changed drastically since their initial 2014 announcement. Some films have remained intact while others have been completely pushed aside. One of the characters to get lost in the reshuffling appears to be Cyborg. Fisher made a brief cameo as Victor Stone in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice but was a standout in Justice League.
There's hardly been an update on his potential solo movie and the best news for Fisher came when Rick Famuyiwa was set to direct The Flash solo movie. He was then set to appear alongside Ezra Miller, but that seems to have fallen by the wayside. One idea fans have been keen on is him potentially establishing a team of his own, the Titans, and them getting a movie together. Teen Titans is merely just a dream at this point, but that doesn't mean Fisher isn't interested.
Fisher appeared at Wizard World Philadelphia and, during a Q&A with those in attendance, he was asked if he would want to star in a Teen Titans movie. According to Comicbook, Fisher responded by saying, "I mean, nothing is off the table, really." In fact, Fisher isn't as concerned with what movie he's in next as much as with the subject matter.
"It’s like, stories with consequence actually really appeal to me, where characters are going through recognizable struggle that I see in every day life. So if that translates to Titans or a Cyborg standalone or Justice League 2, as long as that’s there, I’m sold, man. I’m good with anything."
Considering the lack of news on Cyborg in the last four years, him headlining a team-up movie could be the ideal scenario for Warner Bros. Such a movie could allow them to add even more young talent to their roster, which is a direction they appear to want to go down with Flash and Batgirl being two of their bigger priorities. It could also give them an incredibly diverse roster depending on which characters the brought around Cyborg. After all, Nightwing is already slated to appear in the DCEU - and he's another major player in the Titans team.
However, there's yet to be any indication that Teen Titans is a movie WB is interested in developing, despite Paul Thomas Anderson expressing interest in directing such a film. DC is actually filming a Titans show for their digital service, DC Universe. This series is using many of the characters that typically make up the Titans roster and there's a possibility that Cyborg (not played by Fisher) will actually be part of the end of the season and play a vital role in the Doom Patrol series as well. At this point, Teen Titans is far from happening, but with Fisher open to the possibility, perhaps Warner Bros. will give the property a thought as a big screen franchise.
