Variety is reporting that young stage actor Ray Fisher has been cast as Victor Stone (Cyborg) in the upcoming sequel to last summer’s hit Man of Steel.
Rumors had been floating for a long time that Warner Brothers had been making an effort to cast its DC movie with a very diverse cast. Fisher’s name had popped up previously as a short list of actors being seen for the role.
Fisher joins the Batman-Superman cast that includes Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Gal Gadot, and Amy Adams.
The untitled film is scheduled for release on May 6, 2016.
