While the DC Extended Universe featured the live-action debut of Cyborg, portrayed by Ray Fisher, DC Universe's Doom Patrol will star a different incarnation of the character, played by Jovian Wade.
While promoting the upcoming DC Universe original series, Wade took the opportunity to thank Fisher for his big screen performance of the character and introducing the DC Comics superhero to wider audiences ahead of Doom Patrol's premiere.
"Thank you for paving the way, thank you for demonstrating and giving us an amazing version of Cyborg," declared Wade when asked what he would like to say to fellow Cyborg actor Ray Fisher in an interview with ComicBook.com. "I just hope I can demonstrate half of what he was able to do and give the fans half of what they loved from his version of that. At the same time knowing that this is a different version, just getting some feedback and advice as to how his journey was within the DC world."
Fisher had made his debut as Vic Stone in a brief cameo in 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice before making his full introduction in the following year's Justice League. While Fisher's future in the DCEU is currently unknown, Wade hopes to meet with the actor someday and compare experiences.
"I love Ray Fisher and everything he's done and what he's portrayed and I can't wait to join that family of Vic Stones and Cyborgs," Wade continued.
Premiering Friday on DC Universe, Doom Patrol stars Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele, Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor, Diana Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Alan Tudyk as Mr. Nobody, April Bowlby as Rita Farr, Jovian Wade as Vic Stone and Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder.
