Following on from Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice earlier this year, Warner Bros. is really starting to piece together its developing DC Comics franchise by linking all of the entertainment giant's outputs. In recent release Suicide Squad, not only did Ben Affleck feature as Batman briefly but Ezra Miller's The Flash also made an appearance opposite nemesis Captain Boomerang. Now, the studio is looking to go even further, with plans to have Ray Fisher's Cyborg pop up in The Flash's stand-alone movie in 2018.
First glimpsed in BvS, next to nothing is known about this cinematic version of Cyborg, however, before he features in The Flash, he is set to be properly introduced in Justice League. His involvement in both future projects are intended to build audiences' interest in the relatively mysterious character, aiming toward a potential, separate Cyborg film in 2020.
For those not too familiar with comic folklore, Cyborg (or as he is first known; Victor Stone) is transformed into a half-man, half-machine hero after scientists use him as a test subject for various intelligence enhancement projects. His metallic prosthetic limbs give him super strength, speed and stamina, as well as the ability to fly in small bursts.
While The Flash's plot is unknown - it is still thought to be in the writing stages, with Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows) working on a script, followers will already know that Allen's love interest (and eventual wife in the comics), Iris West, will be played by Dope actress Kiersey Clemons. While Fisher's appearance might only be as a cameo, it offers an idea as to the kind of relationship between Flash and Cyborg fans can expect in Justice League.
Justice League is scheduled to reach UK and US cinemas on 17 November 2017. Directed by Dope's Rick Famuyiwa, The Flash is currently slated to reach big screens worldwide a little later in March 2018.
