This thing between Ray Fisher and Warner Bros. has heated up to the point of daily jabs between the two parties. I’m not going to recap the last couple of days because you can find that stuff here and here. Suffice it to say, Fisher is not staying quiet, and he’s threatening to drop more receipts than he’s already done.
Fisher has been vocal about what he calls abuses on the set of Joss Whedon’s Justice League reshoots, perpetrated by the director, and producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. DC Films president Walter Hamada has been pulled directly into this, as well. Fisher, who already clapped back at WB’s official statement, now says they don’t know “how many receipts I have for interactions that I’ve had. They do not know the people that I’ve been talking to.”
He also calls it a “sad and desperate game” the studio’s recent accusations that he has been uncooperative with the investigation.
Further, Fisher responds directly to Hamada who allegedly sought to get Johns off the hook at the expense of Whedon and Berg…
“[Hamada’s] excuse for the situation with Geoff Johns was, ‘Ray, I worked with Geoff on Shazam!, I don’t really think he would do that or say that,’ and I go, ‘Walter, you weren’t there. I’m telling you, you weren’t. You were not there when the man used back-channel communication to call me into his office and made the veiled threat to my career. You weren’t there for that.”
“You weren’t there when Geoff Johns contacted me in 2018 – a year and a half after Justice League while I was shooting True Detective – to gloat that there was another Cyborg being used in the DC Universe in a show that he was producing.'”
And Fisher’s not done here, as he promises to reveal more about his experiences after the movie. This has to be weird for everyone, as Fisher is expected to appear as Cyborg in The Flash. He’ll also have an expanded role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and if fans respond to this take on the character both sides will have to work things out.
It really is a shame that @wbpictures willfully chose to publicly undermine the seriousness of the toxicity and abuse that myself and others have reported to WB HR and Labor Relations
They tried to minimize me as being an actor with petty creative differences.
