Ray Fisher calls on Ben Affleck’s Batman to return publicity stunt in Justice League investigation


Ray Fisher has suggested the news of Ben Affleck’s return as Batman was a Warner Bros. publicity stunt. to distract from the seriousness of the investigation into the toxic work environment experienced on the set of Justice League. because Batman was clearly meant to be revealed to DC Fandome. I’ll give you an idea of ​​why [Warner Bros.] probably jumped the gun.This was followed by two images, one of a tweet from Fisher himself explaining that an independent investigation had been launched into the toxic environment of the Justice League, and another of the news from Vanity Fair on Affleck’s return as Batman. He circled in red the time stamps of the two stations; hers at 1:38 p.m. on August 20 and Vanity Fair’s at 3:02 p.m. on the same day.

Fisher appears to state that following his announcement of the investigation, Warner Bros. Quickly gave Vanity Fair permission to publish his exclusive interview with The Flash director Andy Muschietti about Affleck’s comeback, which was presumably under embargo until the DC FanDome event that took place. place two days later. Fisher suggests that the discussion generated around Affleck’s return would then act as a smokescreen for the more serious talking point.

This is Fisher’s latest point of contention against an investigation he says is not taking the situation as seriously as it needs to be. A few days earlier, he had posted on Twitter to say that the cabinet conducting the investigation had “avoided contacting key witnesses”.

The case against WarnerMedia and Fisher’s allegations against Joss Whedon’s Justice League set has been going on for several weeks now, with the company denying the allegations. Fisher also accused the investigation of not being independent.
