Ray Fisher has signed with CAA, the agency announced Friday.
Fisher is best known for his role as Victor Stone aka “Cyborg” in the DC Cinematic Universe. Cyborg had a brief cameo in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and Fisher’s character will next be seen in “Justice League.” The character is half-man, half-machine, and his borg-like abilities include super strength and a genius-level intellect.
The actor posted a photo of himself on Instagram looking jacked at the gym, captioning the photo, “Half-Man, Half-Machine… #BORGLIFE #JusticeLeague.”
On getting cast, Fisher previously told EW, “I didn’t know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character. 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. I’m a long-game player and didn’t see any of this happening until at least my 40’s. It’s a huge honor, but a bit of pressure comes along with it. My mind is just boggled right now.”
Zack Snyder is directing “Justice League,” which unites superheroes Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Miller) and Cyborg (Fisher).
A “Cyborg” standalone film will be released in 2020. In the meantime, fans can look forward to “Wonder Woman” on June 2, 2017 and “Justice League” on Nov. 17, 2017.
Fisher received rave reviews for his portrayal of Muhammad Ali in the Off Broadway production of “Fetch Clay, Make Man” at the New York Theatre Workshop.
Fisher’s lawyer is David Weber of Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern. He was previously unrepresented.
