10 'Justice League' members who deserve a shot on the big screen
How many do you recognize?
Pros: He brings some much needed diversity to a super hero team (something The Avengers haven't rectified on the field) and his current incarnation of a man who is unsure he is even human anymore makes for an intriguing character arc. While his original origin found him a member of the Teen Titans, the recent DC reboot has his origin tied to that of the Justice League itself. If the movie is going to mirror that recent Darkseid themed storyline than Cyborg could easily be introduced on the big screen. Strategically, Cyborg has a major arsenal of weaponry to use in battle and his ability to tap into any computer system in the world be a huge asset. It's hard to believe, but Cyborg has actually been around for 32 years which means he's better known to many moviegoers than you'd think. He's appeared in numerous animated TV series and was the subject of an episode of "Smallville."
Cons: Honestly, not many. Granted, it might be expensive, er, hard for Hollywood's CG wizards to recreate his current Jim Lee designed form (which many have noted has a "Transformers" vibe to it). Unless the filmmakers, DC and Warner Bros. are intent on making the team very small he should be a slam dunk.
