Since the start of DCEU in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, DC Entertainment has been struggling to release films that all fans could get behind, despite introducing Flash and Cyborg. With only Wonder Woman and Aquaman receiving positive reception, the DCEU was in dire straits.
Even with the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, two films that should work on paper, the studio failed by a large margin to meet fan expectations. But after Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League was green-lighted and released, many fans finally found what they were looking for.
The mistreatment of Cyborg
Joining the much sought-after roster of Justice League, Ray Fisher was signed on as Victor Stone. But many found the character undeveloped and barely a part of the film on release. Ray Fisher had alleged the director, Joss Whedon, of racial insensitivity and “racial animus” on set.
Doing justice to his character, in Zack Snyder’s Snydercut, we finally got to see Victor Stone in his element. Zack Snyder had noted before the release of his cut that Cyborg was the heart of the story and it did seem like his character arc tied the whole film together after release.
Despite the strong performance of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, no more films under the Snyderverse were green-lit, making many believe they wouldn’t see Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg.
Does Walter Hamada’s exit mean Cyborg’s return?
Being at the helm of one of the worst eras of DCEU, Walter Hamada finally seems out of the picture. According to Deadline, he has departed from his position as DC Films President. His departure comes at a time when new WB Discovery CEO David Zaslav is reinventing the DCEU.

The True Detective actor had found himself at odds with the DC President after he was fired from The Flash. In a statement issued by Fisher, the actor alleged Hamada of spreading misinformation on the Justice League investigation. However, Hamada’s departure could mean Ray Fisher’s return to the DCEU.
The nightmare is over

Considering the strong groundwork Cyborg had in the Snyderverse and the immense fan loyalty, there is a lot of potential for a standalone Cyborg film. If the rumors of Henry Cavill returning to DCEU are true, he could lead the way for Ray Fisher.
