Victor Stone, the Cyborg, is best known as a member of the Teen Titans, but since the New 52 he was reintroduced as one of the founding members of the Justice League, as was also shown in theaters by the 2017 film. The character is currently played by Ray Fisher, who also did a part in Batman vs. Superman, but although his film has been in development for a while, things can take time to move out of place. Fisher explains why:
“There are a ton of people making that kind of decision behind the scenes. And it would be a very, very expensive film, because it is so heavy with Cyborg, because I am the only member of the League that is not in a practical fantasy. You will be looking at $ 200 million just to make this movie. So it’s one of those things that you should take into account. It’s a numbers game for some people at the end of the day “
Such a film is possible to be made, but there are countless challenges that would make the production more expensive and Ray Fisher is aware and certain about it, since to enter his character, he needs to wear a motion capture costume, which is not not an easy process, considering all the necessary changes in CGI to reach a satisfactory result as in the Justice League.
At the end of the film, we saw Victor reconciling with his father, Dr. Silas Stone and learning more about his technological skills, but it may be a while before we see what will happen after that. Originally expected to be released on April 3, 2020, his solo film has been postponed and remains without a new date for now, but plans have not been canceled.
Until then, we will have the Aquaman film, which should premiere in December 2018, and Wonder Woman 1984, which still has no release date, but is already being recorded. Other films such as Birds of Prey, Flash and Batman are also in development and may debut before Victor Stone’s solo film.
