Cyborg actor Ray Fisher recently attended Rhode Island Comic-Con and he talked about the character’s influence on him, and how he got introduced to the character.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
Judging from his comments it seems as though we can expect to see a portrayal of Cyborg that is straight out of the Teen Titans cartoon, as well as the comics.
