Recently, the Cyborg actor, Ray Fisher, accused Warner Bros. of lying about the Justice League reshoot. Fisher made his debut in DCEU by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, before getting any proper Justice League role. In the upcoming Justice League movie, which was planned to be directed by Zack Synder, Cyborg’s character was significant. Still, then Synder exited from the project due to family tragedy. After Snyder, Warner Bros. hired Joss Whedon to complete the film, and Fisher accused him of unprofessional and abusive behavior on set. Almost two months from now, Fisher has openly spoken about the poor treatment and unprofessionalism on the Justice League stage.
Raymond Fisher is an American actor and known for his famous character in DC Extended Universe, Cyborg. He was featured as Muhammad Ali in the play Fetch Clay, Make Man. Fisher started his career as a theatre artist in the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s live program Shakespeare Live. He then got the role of Tom Robinson in the production of To Kill a Mockingbird. He approached the film brilliantly; he tried to show his compassion. The character was in jail for seven months for the crime he did not commit. All he had, taken away from him, he can not feed his children and wife. And yet he does not complain or bad mouth anyone for what happened, partly because he can not. He does not have bad thoughts about others. And Fisher shared he wished if he would have the quality.
Ray is a very obedient and passionate actor and got his cameo role in the Justice League movie as superhero Victor Stone or Cyborg. After that movie, he signed a few contracts in other films, including the solo Cyborg film. Although later, the studio did not stay up to their contract and also according to Fisher, they behave unprofessionally on set.
The dispute led to an investigation started by Warner Bros. into the reshoot of the Justice League, but recently the matter has become extremely complicated. Fisher also accused the studio of manipulating the investigation, and Warner Bros. Studio claimed that Fisher has not cooperated with them. Fisher posted some evidence on Twitter to show why he refused to talk with the third-party investigator. Yesterday, the news broke about the new reshoots of Synder’s Justice League cut, and the movie will debut on HBO Max next year. After that, Fisher accused Warner Bros. of lying about the reshoots, he wrote: It would appear that @wbpictures has gone from giving libelous official statements to one media outlet, to becoming “a source” of purposeful misinformation for another. The people are on to you. The investigation is coming. Casting aspersions on me will not change that.
Fisher said that there is no doubt Warner Bros.’ said that he did not cooperate with them in the investigation because they wanted to quiet his allegations by announcing the upcoming Ben Affleck’s Batman. The studio also tried to do that by spreading the story about Jason Momoa featuring in the Frosty the Snowman remake. To which Momoa publicly came out and supported Fisher in his allegations. He also tweeted with hashtag #ISupportRayFisher. So if Fisher’s claims are right, Warner Bros. might distract people from the matter.
However, it is worth mentioning that the Superman of Justice League, Henry Cavill mentioned that he would not be retrained for the reshoots. After that, the studio has made an official announcement of the reshoot. According to Fisher’s statements, it seems a little strange. Although Synder has not yet commented on anything on reshoots, audiences expect some clarity soon from his side.
These are some latest updates about the Fisher and WB matter. We hope they both will soon solve problems.
