Justice League’s Ray Fisher says playing Cyborg gave him a mantra to live his life by


Bringing Cyborg to the DCEU has been exciting for Ray Fisher, but helping fans be positive in the face of trials has been the most rewarding mission for the Justice League star.

For Ray Fisher, taking on the role of Cyborg in the Justice League films has given him the opportunity to share funny moments with costars like Ben Affleck and Jason Momoa, and fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a superhero. And, Fisher says being a part of the DC Extended Universe has been a thrilling ride.

While revealing the new Cyborg wax figure recently added to the Madame Tussauds Orlando exhibit “Justice League: A Call for Heroes,” Fisher spoke with Culturess about his journey in the DCEU, from behind the scenes jokes to the serious message behind his BORGLIFE posts on social media.

What are some things you’ve enjoyed most about becoming a part of the DCEU?

One of the greatest things I’ve enjoyed is being able to have my childhood dream come true. I used to pretend like I was a superhero – tying capes made of towels around my neck and jumping off the front porch and now, I get to do it in a CG onesie and pretend like I’m flying to outer space.

In that CG onesie, do you have any favorite scenes that you’ve filmed that really stand out in the movies you’ve done so far?

In Justice League, I liked the scenes where we’re all together as a team. A lot of the stuff was one-on-one, like me and Joe Morton who played my father and was phenomenal. But when you get the team out there, you see that dynamic and you actually see all your favorite super heroes up there at once. That was probably my favorite to shoot.

Since you all are a team on screen, I’m sure you’ve become good friends off screen as well. Do you have favorite memories or funny things that have happened on set that really stand out as you were getting to know each other?

Tons. I feel like every day was its own crazy, kooky adventure. We all have such different personalities and such different comedic sensibilities that there was never really a dull moment. Some of the funnier parts of the experience for me were pretending that Ben could actually hear what we were saying to him in the bat cowl because he was almost completely deaf in it — so we’d all be making jokes and he’d go, “Huh? What did you say?”

On your Instagram account, I noticed you talk a lot about BORGLIFE – can you tell me about what that means?

BORGLIFE was actually started by my buddy and myself and it’s the ability to take the negative situations in your life and turn it into something positive to help other people. I think that really encapsulates not only a mantra that I want to live by, but also the character of Cyborg. He’s had a really rough go of things in his life, and he’s using that not for evil, but to help people along the way.
