Ray Fisher, the actor behind Justice League‘s Cyborg, says that former DC boss Geoff Johns threatened his career during reshoots.
Since Zack Snyder returned to complete his Snyder Cut of Justice League, Cyborg actor Ray Fisher hasn’t been shy about airing his criticisms of the original film, including of director Joss Whedon.
Fisher said that former DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns enabled some nasty behaviour from Whedon and now Fisher has called out Johns once again. Taking to Twitter, the actor wrote:
“During the LA reshoots for Justice League, Geoff Johns summoned me to his office to belittle and admonish my (and my agent’s) attempts to take grievances up the proper chain of command. He then made a thinly veiled threat to my career. This behavior cannot continue.”

Johns hasn’t responded to Fisher’s comments as yet but it is clear that Fisher isn’t at all happy with his time working on the film in the absence of Zack Snyder. It will be interesting to see how he feels about the film once the Snyder Cut arrives in 2021.
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.
