Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in the film, said there’s a great deal of promise in Cyborg as well as the fictional research facility S.T.A.R. Labs, which appears in several DC Comics.

“I think he would create an incredible bridge between superheroes and humanity,” Cavill said of the Cyborg character.

S.T.A.R. Labs was also the workplace of Justice League characters Professor Hamilton (played by Richard Schiff in “Man of Steel”) and the superhero Rampage, although it’s unclear whether the latter is involved in the Batman-Superman film.

Cavill returns as Superman with Ben Affleck set to don the cowl as Batman. Gal Gadot (Furious 6) will play Wonder Woman against Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor.

Also cast are Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Callan Mulvey, Jeremy Irons, Tao Okamoto and TJ Norris.

Currently the “Man of Steel” sequel is set to open May 6, 2016.
