DC’s Cyborg Movie Still On Course For 2020 Release, Star Says

There has been much recent uncertainty about DC’s upcoming roster of superhero movies. Only Aquaman has a confirmed release date after 2017–The Flash is currently looking for its third director, and there have been no updates at all about Cyborg. However, the latter’s star, Ray Fisher, has now confirmed that the movie is on course for a 2020 release.

The update comes via DCWorld, who reported from a recent Q&A with Fisher at the City of Heroes convention in the UK. They tweeted:

The 2020 date for Cyborg was originally set three years ago, but there have been a variety of changes to the DC schedule since then. Justice League is now one film instead of two, while The Flash is currently without a director and has reportedly undergoing a complete rewrite.

In addition, the standalone Batman movie is expected in the next few years, as is Gotham City Sirens, which focuses on Harley Quinn and various female DC villains. In March it was reported that the studio were keen to put another movie into production this year, but it is unknown what this would be.

Fisher, meanwhile, will play Cyborg in Justice League, which is directed by Zack Snyder and hits theaters in November. Check out the latest trailer here.

Top 10 UK Sales Chart: Injustice 2 Debuts At No.1, Farpoint Is Highest Charting VR Game Ever

Injustice 2 has finished top of the UK games chart in its debut week, beating off competition from Sony’s new VR shooter Farpoint, which comes in at No.2 for the week ending May 20. The result makes the Injustice sequel “the first beat-’em-up to reach No.1 since Mortal Kombat X,” according to sales monitor Chart-Track. Farpoint, meanwhile, is the highest-charting VR-required game ever in the UK.

Below that, Grand Theft Auto V slips one place to No.3, while Bethesda’s sci-fi action game Prey falls to No.4 (down from No.1 last week).

Another new entry, the 3DS-exclusive Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, manages a No.5 debut, while fellow newcomer The Surge opens at No.10.

Injustice and Farpoint’s success follows positive critical reception for both titles. We awarded Warner Bros.’ brawler a 9/10 in our Injustice 2 review–critic Peter Brown called it “a fighting game that can be enjoyed by new players and pros alike.”

Farpoint, meanwhile, offers “a taste of something new for PSVR,” according to our critic Justin Clark. Read more in our full Farpoint review, or check out the first 30 minutes of gameplay here.
