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”.
Others (including a person involved who called me to apologize) have already been questioned.
We will NOT let ANY investigator choose the interviewees who best suit @wbpictures’ false narratives and scapegoat efforts.
All with stories will be heard!

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.
