During a recent panel for the Justice League, Zack Snyder confirmed that the ‘soul’ of the movie was not Henry Cavill’s Superman but Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. This revelation has brought renewed attention to the character and Fisher’s performance.


Snyder’s Justice League was a much-anticipated movie. It represented his vision for the DC Extended Universe, which had been derailed by studio interference during the making of the original Justice League. The release of the Snyder Cut was a triumph for Snyder and his fans, who had campaigned tirelessly to release his version of the film.

One of the standout performances in the Snyder Cut was Ray Fisher’s portrayal of Cyborg, a character who had been given short shrift in the theatrical release. Fisher’s performance gave depth and nuance to a character who had previously been underserved, and his character arc was one of the most compelling aspects of the movie.
