JUSTICE LEAGUE Actor Ray Fisher Finally Elaborates On Joss Whedon & Warner Bros. Accusations

Following a series of damning allegations against the likes of Joss Whedon, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg and Walter Hamada, Zack Snyder's Justice League star Ray Fisher has finally shared some details...

Over the past year, Ray Fisher has made several serious allegations against certain Warner Bros. executives, producers and directors who worked on the theatrical cut of Justice League, after initially accusing Joss Whedon of "gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable" behaviour during the 2017 movie's reshoots.

Not wanting to "expose the identities of others who shared their stories with him and investigators," Fisher has always been hesitant to share specific details on what allegedly went down, but the Cyborg actor has now opened up to THR.

The piece touches on several different incidents involving Whedon, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, and Walter Hamada, and highlights conversations and behaviour that Fisher and others deemed to be "racist and inappropriate." It also addresses the reasons for Fisher's reluctance to cooperate with the investigations that were launched following his accusations.

From the sounds of things, the early clashes arose from Whedon making major changes to Snyder's original script, greatly reducing Cyborg's role in the story. When reshoots were about to get underway, Fisher says he needed "to explain some of the most basic points of what would be offensive to the Black community" to Whedon, and tried to give "notes to avoid issues in terms of representation of the character."

Apparently, Fisher "had barely started to talk when the filmmaker cut him off," telling him that "It feels like I'm taking notes right now, and I don't like taking notes from anybody — not even Robert Downey Jr."

When Fisher took his grievances to Johns, he was told that they "can't make Joss mad." Johns also said it was "problematic that Cyborg smiled only twice in the movie," because top executives felt that they "could not have an angry Black man at the center of the film."

The article also touches on Whedon's treatment of Gal Gadot, the infamous "booyah" incident, and much more, so be sure to take a look for yourselves.

"I don't believe some of these people are fit for positions of leadership," Fisher concludes. "I don't want them excommunicated from Hollywood, but I don't think they should be in charge of the hiring and firing of other people. If I can't get accountability, at least I can make people aware of who they're dealing with."

Whedon has yet to respond to any of these accusations, nor the more recent claims made by Buffy The Vampire actress Charisma Carpenter.
