Ray Fisher Discusses Cyborg’s Struggles and What He Has in Common with Aquaman!

Ray Fisher had a cameo as Cyborg in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but he'll make his first full-fledged appearance as the character in the upcoming Justice League. If you're not familiar with Cyborg, or you're wondering about how the live-action version will be depicted, Fisher recently shed some light on Cyborg's exceptional evolution.

A tragedy figures in the superhero’s origin story, which is quite common. But very few are forced to shoulder their burdens to the level that Victor Stone does. In an interview published in the latest issue of Geek Magazine, Fisher suggested that his character “lost more than his body”. Other Justice League members can take their superhero costumes off and lead normal lives if they want to, but Cyborg doesn’t have that luxury. So, his struggles are different from the other superheroes' (via ScreenRant):

Being able to see that sort of massive setback, yet seeing the guy overcome it, reconnect with humanity, while reconnecting with himself, is powerful. And rebuild the relationship with his father, who turned him into Cyborg, which essentially took a bad relationship and made it even worse. It’s just an opportunity to watch this person, this superhero, who overcomes tremendous trauma and has every right to basically say, "Screw the world!", but doesn’t.

Fisher remarked that although Cyborg has to deal with profound issues, Aquaman (Jason Momoa) is the one Justice League member he can relate to. The half-human/half-Atlantean is the “most similar” to the half-human/half-robot. Fisher added that the two characters both struggle with “living basically half in one world, half in another” (via ScreenRant).

I think there is a recognition between , where they may not necessarily get along, and they may not necessarily trust one another at first, but it’s that thing when you see someone who’s like you, and when you resent yourself to begin with, it could create that sort of conflict between them. There is also a very deep level of respect at the same time.
