Justice League’s Ray Fisher and Jason Momoa Excited to Bring More Diversity to the DCEU
Justice League will be hitting theaters next month, and no one is more excited to be part of the iconic superhero team than Ray Fisher and Jason Momoa. Fisher and Momoa who play Cyborg and Aquaman respectively, bring new voices and diverse perspectives in superhero films.
Screenrant reports that Ray Fisher is thrilled to bring a “multi-faceted” representation to the role of Cyborg, particularly in showing disabilities in a new lens/
“DC’s going to be changing the name to Diversity Comics pretty soon…You’re dealing with the only member of the Justice League who is African-American. You’re dealing with the only member of the Justice League who is in some ways what some would consider disabled. You don’t want to end up telling a story that isn’t respectful of those factors. But he’s going to be cool as hell.”
Jason Momoa, on the other hand, is excited for the opportunity to race-bend the role of Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Momoa is of Native Hawaiian and German/Irish/Native American descent).
“He’s white with blond hair. But Zack had a vision. The fact that Aquaman is a brown-skinned superhero, I’m pretty stoked about that. I love being able to set the tone.”
