The Justice League cover misconduct investigation has taken a dark turn.
It started when actor Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the film, tweeted on July 1 alleging the “rude, abusive, unprofessional and totally unacceptable” conduct of director Joss Whedon on set. He added that Whedon was “activated, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg”.
Then, two weeks ago, we learned that WarnerMedia had launched an investigation into the production.
Things took a different turn yesterday when Fisher sent a tweet accusing current DC Films chairman Walter Hamada of trying to “throw Joss Whedon and Jon Berg under the bus in the hope that I would give in to Geoff.” Johns ”in a phone call he received.
Warner Bros. Pictures quickly released a statement claiming that not only were Fisher’s claims about Hamada false, Fisher had refused any attempt by investigators to meet with him. The studio added Warners, “Remains committed to investigating any specific and credible allegations of misconduct, which Mr. Fisher has so far failed to provide.”
Fisher fired back today, calling out Warners in a tweet for their “desperate and dispersed attempt to discredit me to continue to protect those in power” and posting a screenshot on Twitter of an email he sent to his team and SAG-AFTRA shortly after meeting the third-party investigator via Zoom on August 26.
The email says, “I just left the line with the investigator. I had to end the interview early before I went into details with him. He also had another person from the line as a witness that we were not aware of. I told him I had to have a representative online to guarantee me. He tried to keep me on the line, but I told him I should consult with my team before continuing.
Fisher adds that Warners: “took this to a whole new level, but I’m up for the challenge. ”
