Ray Fisher Will Play Cyborg In BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

He's from the theatre, so you might not have heard of him, but that also means he's good.

I've always dug Victor Stone as a character, by which I mean I really liked Cyborg on Smallville (played by the late, incredibly handsome Lee Thompson Young). He's a part of Batman vs. Superman for which I can feel actual enthusiasm, and today it was announced that Broadway actor Ray Fisher will wear the hardware in the upcoming DC film. 

This is cool for a number of reasons: Hollywood has even fewer black superheroes than they do female. And unlike that time they cast Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Fisher is primarily a theatre actor, and that means he can actually act. This will come in especially handy if he gets a spinoff, which seems possible:

Cyborg, while not a major part in the Batman-Superman feature, is a member of the Justice League and will become a much more significant role as Warner and D.C. develop more films related to the Justice League universe, sources confirm.

Thoughts? This is good, right? No reason to see this as anything but good.
