Cyborg in Batman vs. Superman

Besides the fans, the biggest winners of the recent DC Warner Bros. announcement were Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. With a simple press release, each went from up and coming actor to movie star with their own franchise. Momoa, who’ll play Aquaman, is obviously thrilled. We have yet to hear from Miller, who plays The Flash. Now Cyborg’s alter-ego, Ray Fisher, has spoken out.

The actor, best known for his work on Broadway, told Entertainment Weekly he had no idea DC was planning a Cyborg solo movie when he first signed onto play the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In fact, producers didn’t tell him of the plan until hours before the official announcement was made. He also confirmed he’s long since finished shooting his part in Snyder’s film and met several other members of the Justice League. That could give a hint as to what the role actually is in the film.

In the year 2115, two robot scientists will compare 1989 and 2009 using the original version of Teen Witch and United ArtistsTeen Witch remake starring the girl/”global brand” above, Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical, bright backgrounds). Cue robotic eye rolling. I checked on IMDB and thankfully, the cornerstone of the cheeky original, Zelda Rubenstein (right) is still alive, so UA better call her up for a tween-appealing cameo or face a spell not worthy of Carol Anne.

This might not be totally accurate, but I believe the original movie ranks on 20somethin’ girls’ endearing nostalgia-meter right around where American Ninja or Cyborg ranks with dudes of the same age. So it’s not exactly a female Fletch, but Tisdale has her bedazzled work cut out for her. Can she top the original’s rather amazing signature musical number entitled “Top That!”? That is a rhetorical question, but we’ve included the link to “Top That!” for your enjoyment. Yes, it’s friggin’ worth it.
