6. Ray Fisher as Cyborg
Ray Fisher’s performance as Cyborg in the DC Extended Universe was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the franchise. Despite the character’s limited screen time, Fisher managed to bring depth and nuance to the role, capturing the complexity of a young man struggling to come to terms with his newfound powers and his troubled relationship with his father.
However, despite Fisher’s impressive acting abilities, he was never able to fully realize the character of Cyborg due to poor writing. The character was given a minimal backstory, with his transformation into Cyborg largely glossed over, leaving audiences with little understanding of the character’s motivations or struggles. The film also failed to explore Cyborg’s relationship with the other members of the Justice League, leaving his role in the team feeling underdeveloped and disconnected from the main plot.
Ranking Cyborg as last on this list likely comes with little surprise to fans and may seem like a cop-out, but it’s hard to justify ranking the character above others from the Justice League whose stories were fleshed out more, thus allowing for them to shine in more ways than Fisher was given. This is why it’s so important to note that the position is not a reflection of Fisher, who did the best he could with the limited materials he was provided.
