Ray Fisher took to twitter to express that filmmaker Joss Whedon has been “abusive” and “unprofessional” on set. He had tweeted on July 1 that the filmmaker’s “on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.” He further claimed that producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg had enabled the filmmaker, who oversaw reshoots after director Zack Snyder stepped down from the Warner Bros. film in May 2017.
These tweets became viral on social media shed some light on the arduous process of bringing the superhero team to the big screen.
He recently tweeted that, WarnerMedia had “launched an independent third-party investigation to get to the heart of the toxic and abusive work environment created during Justice League reshoots.” He had played the role of Cyborg in the film and said of Whedon, “The man is probably scared, and he should be, because we are going to get to the heart of everything.”
As WarnerMedia has started to investigate Fisher’s claims, Whedon and Berg have remained silent following Fisher’s claims in July, while Berg has publicly denied them.
Recently Whedon shared a clip of himself praising at a Comic-Con event as a “great guy” and a “good person to come in and finish” the film. Fisher wrote alongside the video, “I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement.”
The film starred Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ezra Miller as The Flash and none of them have yet said a word on this ongoing controversy.
