Cyborg Will Appear in 'The Flash' Movie
We caught a brief glimpse of Cyborg in Batman v Superman, and we know he'll feature in Justice League, but that won't be the last time we see the character before he gets his own movie in 2020. 

According to a new report from Variety, the character will appear in the upcoming The Flash movie. The extent of his role is unknown; whether it's just a cameo or if he's more involved with the plot, but the publication's sources claim he's definitely in the movie. Warner Bros. declined to comment on the story.

Flash director Rick Famuyiwa seemed to deny the veracity of Variety's story:



Original article below:

The Flash, which stars Ezra Miller as the speedster, is scheduled to hit theaters in 2018 - a year after Justice League and two years before Cyborg. It makes sense for Warner Bros. to feature Cyborg in the film to keep him on filmgoers' minds before his own film comes out, and it also shows the studio's willingness to copy Marvel's formula a bit when it comes to franchises sharing their stars across films.

The news definitely makes us more excited for The Flash, and for the DCEU in general. DC's films are still lacking a sense of fun, but if they can find organic ways to incorporate various characters across their films without it feeling forced (oh hey, Batman v Superman), then there's still a chance this grand experiment could turn out all right.
