JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR's Shemar Moore "Is Aiming To Be" Cyborg In A Live-Action Movie
That's right, we finally have an actor who has put themselves forward to bring 'Cyborg' (a fan favourite since Flashpoint and the launch of "The New 52") to life on the big screen. However, he will first voice the character in animated feature, Justice League: War. Hit the jump to check out his comments!
"I am so excited by this just because it’s fun doing it," Shemar Moore told iamROGUE in a recent interview about voicing 'Cyborg' in Warner Bros.' upcoming Justice League: War animated feature. "I wasn’t a big comic book guy. What I like about Cyborg is I got to do this about a year ago for the first time, really a fish out of water. I had no idea, the offer came to me to be the voice of Cyborg. He’s this half black, half white human, but he’s half machine, half human because of an accident that happened to him. But he’s a black superhero. But I like that he’s a bi-racial superhero because I’m bi-racial. The president of the United States is bi-racial." So, it's clear that learning about the character for this movie - which is based on the events of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee's first Justice League arc in "The New 52" - has given him a passion for the character; so much so in fact that he'd like to play him on the big screen!
"I’d be a liar if I didn’t say I have a fantasy or wish that [hopefully] I should be able to play Cyborg in a feature film," he revealed. "I’d love it if they were able to do something with the Justice League to where I could join a group of actors and go out there and be Cyborg. This is just the beginning, but this is another avenue of entertainment that I now get in to play in and I really had a ball. Once they showed me the ropes and what it was, it was one of the most fun things that I’ve done as far as performing." With a Justice League movie seemingly on the way after Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman hits in 2015, there's nothing to say that the studio aren't already giving some consideration to which actors could bring the superhero team to life alongside Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck. The fact that he's already voiced Cyborg could of course go in Moore's favour... ""If I could get out there and play Cyborg, that’s the ultimate goal. It’s an honor to play a part of the Justice League family and to be on these DVDs, but I would be a liar if I said I’m not aiming to be Cyborg in a feature film."
