Shemar Moore Talks Voicing Cyborg In Justice League: War; Hopes To Play The Character In Live Action
Justice League: War is DC and Warner Brother’s next big animated film that is scheduled to hit sometime next year. The story will focus on the first outing of the Justice League in The New 52. With a stellar cast such as Jason O’Mara as Batman and Alan Tudyk as Superman replacing such legends as Kevin Conroy and Tim Daly respectively, it’s will be interesting to see how the movie will do with the newer cast.
One of the new cast members is Shemar Moore voicing Cyborg. Unlike a lot of the Justice League members, Cyborg has only appeared in a handful of DC animated movies with Michael B. Jordan most recently voicing him for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. Moore is excited about the voicing the character saying, “I am so excited by this just because it’s fun doing it. I wasn’t a big comic book guy. I knew the basics of Superman, Spider-Man. 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.”
While he is ecstatic to be playing Cyborg in an animated film, Moore’s ultimate goal would be to play the live action version of the character. “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. 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,” he said. He continued to say that he is still doing pushups, and hoping that one day he will get the call to do a live action film, also adding, “When we go to Comic-Con you see these legions and legions of fans that just love this world. So for me to go out there and play Cyborg, he’s just an interesting character and what I know of him thus far. For me to be half machine, half human, kicking ass, that would be a dream come true.”
The odds of Moore tackling the role of Cyborg in live action has to be pretty small. Cyborg, in the comics, is a high school senior, and while Moore doesn’t look like he is 43, he doesn’t look fresh out of high school either. However, they are going with an older Batman in the upcoming Superman/Batman film, so I guess anything is possible.
