The upcoming Warner Bros. film focusing on The Flash may see the speedster team up with Cyborg.
With the Justice League well and truly on the way to formation, it’s no secret that The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) will be seen in Zack Snyder’s The Justice League Part One, but it’s interesting to learn that the first Flash-focused picture could also feature Cyborg.
Here’s what producer Deborah Snyder had to say during an interview with Forbes:
As you can imagine, when we get to the Flash movie, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher — who plays Cyborg — are kind of our youngest characters, and they have a really nice comradery with each other. Ezra is super funny, so the tone of that film will be very different than the rest of them.
Of course, one could also assume Snyder was referring to the type of interaction Miller and Fisher will have in the Justice League pictures, but it certainly sounds like she’s talking about The Flash, which is scheduled to hit the U.S. on March 16, 2018.
Also worthy of note is Snyder pointing out that Miller’s humour should make the film lighter in tone in comparison to the darker films in the DC cinematic universe. With Suicide Squad receiving reshoots to add some levity to the proceedings, it’s clear that the studio is putting in some effort to pull back the oh-so-serious stylings seen in both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
If Cyborg does have a big part to play in The Flash, it won’t come as too much of a surprise. After all, WB’s game of catch up looks to be about populating their films with various characters to cut corners with universe-building. BvS saw not only Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Lex Luthor included, but (spoilers ahead) it also gave us our first snippets of The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman. And with Suicide Squad introducing an entire array of villains, with added Batman, you can assume that many chapters in the DCCU will come with multiple characters.
Suicide Squad is up next, hitting Australia on August 4 and the U.S. on August 5. Wonder Woman will follow, opening in the U.S. on June 23, 2017.
