Ray Fisher “Forcefully Retracts” Any Cheerleading He Did For Joss Whedon’s ‘Justice League’

Damn, man. Ray Fisher just went hard on Joss Whedon’s version of Justice League. It seems the Cyborg actor is pretty embarrassed that he went out on tour and publicly championed for Whedon’s cut of the failed superhero movie. In fact, he attacks the film in a new tweet, pointing to one specific moment, one I personally attended, when he backed Whedon during a Justice League panel at Comic-Con…

“I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement.”

Damn, son. With the Snyder Cut coming to HBO Max, it’s clear that Fisher is ready to get the moment in the spotlight that he was denied. See, Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League included an expanded role for Victor Stone aka Cyborg. The cut Whedon delivered drastically reduced Cyborg’s storyline, and when the movie bombed he was left out in the cold. That planned Cyborg spinoff? Dead in the water.  Meanwhile, Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, and Henry Cavill all have shit goin’ on in the DCEU.

Perhaps Fisher believes Snyder’s Justice League can change his fortunes? Maybe. Cyborg is expected to pop up in The Flash, but it does seem like the character has become an afterthought.
