Warner Bros. and DC ought to’ve launched a solo Cyborg film starring Ray Fisher as we speak, however this is why the movie by no means occurred. Again when the DC Prolonged Universe was simply starting, WB introduced an bold slate of DC movies that may come after Man of Metal and Batman v Superman: Daybreak of Justice. The slate included a number of Justice League films in addition to standalone movies for every of the staff’s members.
Though a good quantity of those movies had been made (or are slated to launch now within the subsequent few years), a Cyborg standalone movie has been misplaced within the shuffle. Ray Fisher debuted as Victor Stone aka Cyborg briefly in Batman v Superman, but it surely was in Justice League that he obtained an even bigger position. His position within the movie (and particularly in Zack Snyder’s model) would’ve helped propel the character in the direction of a solo outing, as would the one time plans to have him co-star in Rick Famuyiwa’s model of The Flash. WB beforehand introduced Cyborg would come out on April 3, 2020, however that day is right here and the film would not be in theaters even when they weren’t all shut down because of the coronavirus.

Regardless of asserting Cyborg in 2014, WB and DC by no means confirmed any actual effort to get the movie prepared for a 2020 launch date. With a launch date six years away, there was no have to rush growth on Cyborg, however it’s the one movie that the studios utterly forgot about. In 2017, Fisher stated that the film was nonetheless on observe to be launched in 2020 regardless of the movie not having a author or director connected. Of the ten movies that had been introduced in 2014, Cyborg is the one one which by no means employed a author or director.
Out of each film that was a part of the unique announcement, it’s unknown why Cyborg is the challenge that WB and DC by no means obtained off the bottom in spite of everything this time. One potential issue not within the character’s favor is the price range wanted to do Cyborg justice on the massive display. Since his complete go well with is CGI, a Cyborg film can be expensive, and the studios might have in the end determined that it was too dangerous to see if the movie might flip a revenue.
It is a disgrace although as Fisher clearly had a variety of concepts for what a solo Cyborg film might appear to be. Over time Fisher has recommended that the movie could possibly be an origin story or used scrapped components of Justice League. However, he additionally needed the story be private and intimate. The frustration of a Cyborg film not taking place as deliberate will particularly be felt by those that noticed him as a vibrant spot in an in any other case uneven Justice League movie.
At this level, there is no such thing as a clear course for what Cyborg’s future on the massive display holds. It is attainable he might nonetheless be concerned in The Flash if that’s half new director Andy Muscietti’s vision. However, the chance of him getting a solo movie at this stage and earlier than he makes one other look elsewhere appears slim. That stated, if the studios consider Cyborg is not prepared to hold his personal movie, maybe making a Titans film with Cyborg, Nightwing, Starfire, and others could possibly be the good transfer and hold Fisher round. Perhaps then a Cyborg film might occur at a later date, properly after the unique plan for a 2020 launch.
