According to Comic Book Resources on Thursday, even there is no real official title to the "Man of Steel" sequel, Ray Fisher has been reported to play Cyborg in the Zack Snyder film. Though he won't have much of a significant role, Fisher will likely do so in future DC-based comic book movies such as the realm of the Justice League characters.

The alias of Cyborg is Victor Stone in the comic books, was a victim of an inter-dimensional attack by a gelatinous creature which lead his scientific driven father to fit him with inconspicuous, cybernetic prosthetics to keep him alive. At first, he was highly accepting of his appearance, but later grew to accept his new found abilities. He has S.T.A.R. labs to thank for such an upgrade and even a familiar character from the first "Man of Steel" film, Professor Hamilton, played by Richard Schiff.

Fisher had played a prominent role as Mohammed Ali in a Broadway play by the name of "Fetch Clay, Make Man". He also was in contention for a lead role in J.J. Abram's "Star Wars 7" sequel film. He joins Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Of course, as with any good hero-based film, they will be opposing the infamous villain Lex Luthor as portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg.

Diane Lane, who had the pleasure of getting to interact with the Superman costume and plays the Martha Kent role, had recently come back from the city of Detroit where she expressed jokingly how she hadn't yet get to see the Batman outfit. Snyder talked about how it was simply amazing seeing these costumes altogether as a trio during these screen tests as well as cinematographer Larry Fong posting a blurred photo online during these events.

"Batman vs. Superman" is scheduled to open in theaters come May 6.
