Ah, the good ol’ days. Waking up and watching the animated ‘Teen Titans’ show years ago was a blast. There’s a new show that’s sort of a reboot called ‘Teen Titans Go!‘, but it’s just not the same. One of the standouts of that original show was Cyborg, voiced by Khary Payton.
We’ll be able to see to the theatrical version of the character this November played by Ray Fisher, in ‘Justice League‘. Fisher is mostly known for his theater work, and his new role as the half man, half robot is probably going to be his breakout role. He’s already expressed how he was a fan of the original Teen Titans show but now he’s gone a bit further describing how his portrayal will be different from the animated version.
While Talking at the AsiaPOP Comic-Con, ‘Justice League‘ star Ray Fisher talks about his version of the famous DC Comics hero Cyborg.
- “He’s a very real and grounded character and that’s something I found very interesting to bring to the table. I love the cartoon, but this is a different Cyborg, for a new era.”
Fisher goes on to talk a little bit more about the cartoon series and voice actor who played Cyborg.
- “I was a huge fan of that Cyborg growing up as a kid because that was when the original cartoon show was on, and Khary Payton is a master at what he does,” Fisher said.
I like that he’s going a different direction with the character for the film, specifically how he describes him as a “very real and grounded character.” Director Zack Snyder once stated that Cyborg was the heart of the story, so I’m excited to see what Fisher brings to the table.
Justice League unites its way into theaters November 17, 2017.
Justice League – Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
