Speaking at the Asia Pop Comic-Con in Manila, Fisher explained some of the differences between his version of the character and that of animated series.
He’s a very real and grounded character and that’s something I found very interesting to bring to the table. Complaints about the character include a heavily CGI design and monotone line delivery in the trailers – especially worrying because, in the comics and cartoons, Cyborg is one of DC’s most charismatic characters. While Fisher’s version of Cyborg may be a different interpretation of the character, but he still plans on using that signature “booyah” catchphrase.
In the interview, Fisher also spoke about how his inspiration for Cyborg came from numerous early cartoons – especially the acclaimed show Teen Titans, in which Cyborg was a main character.
Though he technically witnessed the Dawn of Justice thanks to an all-too-brief cameo in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman, DC fans are still longing for their first true look at Ray Fisher in action as Victor Stone (AKA Cyborg).
Fisher also said he was a “huge fan” of the animated version of Cyborg growing up, describing the prolific voice actor Payton as “a master at what he does“. However, Fisher’s DC Comics hero will take center stage in the Cyborg movie, now expected to debut in 2020.
