Ray Fisher has been cast as Cyborg in Batman vs. Superman, Variety reports. Fisher is known best for his theater roles including the Broadway play “Fetch Clay, Make Man” where he portrayed Muhammad Ali. This news confirms the rumor from earlier this year, which stated that Zack Snyder was looking to cast a black superhero.

According to Variety, Cyborg will be a minor character in Batman vs. Superman, leading up to a bigger part in the future Justice League movie that Warner Bros. appears to be building up to.

Last year while promoting the Man of Steel Blu-ray, Henry Cavill said that he’d love to see Cyborg in the sequel. It looks like he’s getting his wish!

Cyborg will join Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s untitled Man of Steel sequel. Are you excited to see another member of the Justice League join the movie, or do you think it’s getting a bit crowded? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
