Teased in Man Of Steel with several nods to STAR Labs, Variety have confirmed the casting of relative unknown Ray Fisher as Vic Stone, aka Cyborg, in Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs Superman.

One of DC’s most high-profile man-made superhumans, Stone was reconstructed by his scientist father with enhanced strength and endurance, and an array of cybernetic functions such as a sonic canon.

Best known as a member of the Teen Titans, Cyborg was reintroduced as a member of the Justice League in 2011’s New 52 relaunch and Variety reports a source’s claim that he’ll have “a much more significant role as Warner and DC develop more films related to the Justice League universe.”
