Ray Fisher Discusses Cyborg Influences

There's no doubt fans are excited for Zack Snyder's Justice League - including Ray Fisher.

While on a panel at the Rhode Island Comic Con this weekend, Fisher, who plays Cyborg in the film, discussed growing up watching plenty of classic DC cartoons.

“I actually grew up watching a lot of these cartoons – a lot of the animated series. Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League, all the stuff that would come onto Cartoon Network. My first encounter with Cyborg was through the Teen Titans cartoon.”

He then revealed that it was the Teen Titans cartoon that influenced his portrayal of Cyborg.

“You know, I was in the middle of high school [when Teen Titans debuted], and I was like, ‘This show speaks to me’ because there were all of these characters going through these real teen issues while also saving the world. The extent of my knowledge was just about that.”

Being a fan, Fisher was more than happy to be cast in Justice League.

“Once I was cast, though, they send you a whole library of stuff about the character so I ended up being able to fall in love with the comic book version, which can be very different. I feel like I know him like the back of my hand, but there’s always somebody who knows a little more than me about things.”

Fans can see Ray Fisher as Cyborg in Zack Snyder's Justice League on November 17, 2017.
