It looks like Ray Fisher’s time with DC Films is coming to an end. The ‘Justice League‘ star has apparently removed himself from his Cyborg role in any upcoming DC movies.
Fisher made the announcement on Twitter, revealing that he refuses to work with DC Films president, Walter Hamada.
Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler.— Ray Fisher (@ray8fisher) December 30, 2020
His lies, and WB PR’s failed Sept 4th hit-piece, sought to undermine the very real issues of the Justice League investigation.
I will not participate in any production associated with him.
Fisher has previously released claims of misconduct by execs at the studio, including Hamada, as well as director Joss Whedon.
The actor had alleged Whedon exhibited ‘gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable’ behavior during the making of Justice League, including an allegation that Whedon tried to digitally alter the skin tone of an actor of color in the movie.
Whedon denied the accusations and was supported by then-DC Films president Geoff Johns.
Fisher told Forbes:
Walter Hamada chose to insert himself into this situation by trying to throw Joss Whedon and Jon Berg under the bus to protect Geoff Johns. He has a long-standing work relationship with Johns and an even longer one with Toby [Emmerich] from their time together at New Line.
A rep for Warner Bros. has declined to comment on the recent claims.
For what it’s worth, most of Fisher’s co-stars were supportive of his claims, including Jason Momoa, who called for an investigation. Gal Gadot revealed she didn’t film with Fisher, but she also experienced odd behavior from Whedon…
I had my own experience with [Whedon], which wasn’t the best one, but I took care of it there and when it happened. I took it to the higher-ups and they took care of it. But I’m happy for Ray to go up and say his truth.
