The cast for the upcoming superhero thriller "Batman vs. Superman" continues to come together, as it was announced this week that stage actor Ray Fisher will star as Justice League member Cyborg.
According to Variety, Fisher has joined the star-studded cast
that will see Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprise their roles as Superman and Lois Lane, respectively. In addition, Ben Affleck has been tapped to star as Batman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Fisher, who recently starred as Muhammad Ali in the stage show "Fetch Clay, Make Man," will play Victor Stone/Cyborg, a half-man, half-machine superhero.
The movie is the follow-up sequel to last year's "Man of Steel."
The casting news for "Batman vs. Superman" has not been officially confirmed yet, but Forbes' Mark Hughes predicted that the movie studios
will continue to try and pack the film with big names in an effort to rake in money at the box office.
"The studio is hoping to score 'Avengers'-level box office or higher, so the more the film appears to be setting the stage for a full Justice League movie, and the more we hear about cameos by other superheroes and villains, the more the buzz will grow and anticipation will build in the mainstream," Hughes wrote.
Principal photography is slated to begin next month in Michigan, according to Forbes, and a tentative release date has been set for May 2016.
