LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17 (UPI) — Noted DC Comics tech hero Cyborg is reportedly set to appear in Warner Bros. upcoming The Flash film.
According to Variety citing sources, Cyborg, portrayed by newcomer Ray Fisher, is expected to have a role in The Flash in order to help further establish Warner Bros. connected DC extended universe.
The report does not indicate how big or small Cyborg’s role will be in the film, set to be directed by Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa and starring Ezra Miller as the Scarlet Speedster.
Actress Kiersey Clemons of Dope and Neighbors 2 fame, will also star in The Flash as love interest Iris West, a journalist and friend of Barry Allen aka The Flash who eventually falls for her.
Both Fisher and Miller were introduced as the respective superheroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in a short sequence that also featured Aquaman portrayed by Jason Momoa. The characters were more formally introduced in the first trailer for Justice League, released during the San Diego Comic-Con.
Justice League which also stars Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Superman (Henry Cavill), is set to arrive in theaters Nov. 17, 2017 while The Flash still has no solid release date. Both films will be used to help drum up interest in a potential Cyborg solo film down the line.
Cyborg, aka Victor Stone, is a technologically advanced half human, half machine hybrid who uses his intellect and strength in order to defend the earth. Able to connect into and hack most computers, Cyborg is most known throughout DC Comics as a member of the Justice League and Teen Titans.
