DC Comics and Warner Bros seem intent to add side characters to films in its cinematic universe. The Flash, for example, will feature an appearance from Cyborg.
Variety’s sources say that Cyborg’s appearances in The Flash and Justice League are designed to get audiences excited about the possibility of a standalone Cyborg movie. It’s reported that this could arrive in 2020.
Cyborg is the aftermath of a scientific experiment, a half-man, half-machine hero. He has super strength and other enhanced abilities thanks to his metallic prosthetic limbs.
Warner Bros declined to comment on this rumour.
The Flash is to start shooting in London this year and is expected to be released in 2018.
