1. In the comics, Victor Stone was a young man whose father worked in cybernetics. When he's attacked and mutilated, Stone's father rebuilds him with artificial limbs and parts. There's an element of pathos in the character, because his cybernetics are conspicuous and somewhat disfiguring. He's always been portrayed as an unhappy and tragic character. Check out his reaction when he first discovers what's been done to him.
3. Ray Fisher isn't a well-known actor, because he's done mainly theater roles. His IMDB listing shows just one credit from a short film in 2008. However, he's known on Broadway for playing Muhammad Ali in "Fetch Clay, Make Man."
4. In the bonus feature on the home version of Man of Steel, Cavill (who plays Superman) mentioned the character of Cyborg, and speculated on including him in the movie series. Cavill reportedly said, "I think he would create an incredible bridge between superheroes and humanity."
5. Most likely, they're trying to set up a Justice League movie with this. My theory is that we're going to see a lot more DC superheroes in Man of Steel 2. The studio's plan is clearly to cram as many DC heroes into this movie as they can, so they can build an audience for their long-awaited Justice League movie. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they include Flash, Green Lantern, and Martian Manhunter in the movie as well.
