Yesterday, Justice League star Ray Fisher took to social media to “forcefully retract” some comments he made about Joss Whedon at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2017 where he praised the filmmaker as a replacement for Zack Snyder on the DC blockbuster by stating that: “Joss is a great guy and Zack picked a good person to come in and finish up for him.”
Well, the Cyborg actor has now taken things to a whole new level, tweeting out that “Joss Whedon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable. He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Accountability>Entertainment.”

Variety reached out to Whedon, who took over post-production and reshoots on Justice League following Snyder’s exit after the death of his daughter, but the filmmaker issued “no comment” in response to Fisher’s claims. However, Warner Bros.’ former co-president of production Jon Berg did respond to the comments, stating that “[it is] categorically untrue that we enabled any unprofessional behavior. I remember [Fisher] being upset that we wanted him to say ‘Booyaa,’ which is a well known saying of Cyborg in the animated series.”
As yet, no one else involved with Justice League has spoken out on the situation, but we suspect this story is far from over…
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder and features Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and Robin Wright as General Antiope, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf and Ray Porter as Darkseid.
