Why The Cyborg Movie Will Be A Big Deal, According to Ezra Miller


In building their big superhero cinematic universe, Warner Bros. decided to go the opposite direction than Marvel did. Instead of creating a bunch of solo movies that build up a crossover, Warner is essentially using their big team-up _Justice League _as a platform to create spin-offs. Aquaman is due to release in 2018 with movies starring Flash and Cyborg coming...eventually. Your desire to see these spin-offs will largely reflect how much you enjoy the character in Justice League, but Ezra Miller thinks you'll be begging to see the Cyborg movie.

I think there's going to be a huge demand for Cyborg's film as well because of the emotional gravity this brings. It's what we find in the Nolan Batman movies. Ray brings this level of artistry to this role that's so exciting.

Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) will all be formally introduced to the DCEU in Justice League, with the current plan being that the three of them will each get their own solo movie down the road. Aquaman has already been filmed with director James Wan, but the status of The Flash and Cyborg movies is far more unclear. While there has been PLENTY of news about The Flash movie, we've barely heard a peep about Cyborg. When asked by the LA Times about the status' of their movies, Miller and Fisher really couldn't say, but Miller thinks there will be a big demand for a Cyborg movie after people see Justice League. He says that Cyborg brings an "emotional gravity" that's comparable to Christopher Nolan's Batman films. High praise indeed.

We've heard a few different things about Ray Fisher's Cyborg, from his tragic origins to him being the heart of Justice League. Cyborg is one of the most poetically tragic members of the team (sorry, Batman), so it makes sense that he carries around a lot of dramatic weight. Justice League is said to have a much lighter tone than earlier DCEU films, and it sounds like Cyborg will be supplying the drama and the "booyahs" in equal measure.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder with an additional writing credit given to Joss Whedon. With Superman gone (for now), Batman assembles a team of heroes to protect the world from Steppenwolf and his army of parademons. After a difficult production, the move has finally screened for critics, and though the reception is something of a mixed bag, people have been praising the characters. That's good news for a Cyborg solo movie.

Justice League arrives in theaters in less than a week on November 17. If you've been lazy, make sure to pre-order your tickets while there are still some seats left.
