Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actor Ray Fisher was surprised when Warner Bros and DC Comics announced the upcoming slate of Justice League films.

During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Fisher, who plays Cyborg in the film, shared his surprise when his standalone film was announced.

Fisher had apparently already wrapped his small role in the film back in July, and hadn't been told officially that he was in for a solo film until just before the release slate was announced.

"I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character," Fisher said. "When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn't think I'd be getting my own stand-alone film."

The actor also shared his experience on Zack Snyder's superhero team-up, and his new formed friendship with Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).

"I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill and Ezra Miller," Fisher said.

"It was surreal. You get this idea of going to work on a Hollywood set as being really stressful and nerve-wracking. But it blew that stereotype away. If they did have stressful times, it wasn't while I was there."

"Let me tell you, man," Fisher said with a laugh, "people are in for a hell of a treat."

The 27-year-old actor reportedly confirmed meeting Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ben Affleck (Batman).

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is due in theatres in March 2016.
