A few months ago, Ray Fisher revealed how unhappy it was to work with Joss Whedon on Justice League. After his profound statements, Jason Momoa came to his defense and to show support.
It’s been almost three years since Justice League premiered, and we continue to talk about it practically daily. On the one hand, we have Zack Snyder, who is finally going to launch a version of the film on HBO Max that he can be proud of, which will arrive in a miniseries format with four episodes and 214 minutes of footage; on the other side is Ray Fisher, Cyborg in the movie, who has an open war against Joss Whedon, Snyder’s replacement director in his day. And apparently, his peers, including Jason Mamoa, support the actor.
This war began last June with an enigmatic attack on Twitter that later turned into a much stronger accusation, dismissing Joss Whedon as having an abusive and disgusting attitude on the set: It was unprofessional and completely unacceptable. Geoff Johns and Jon Berg allowed it in many ways. Ray Fisher claims to have been building a case against the director and Warner Bros for two years has had to initiate an internal investigation.
But amid this confrontation of accusations and denunciations, the actor is not alone, and Jason Momoa, Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe and partner of ‘Justice League’, has decided to publicly show his full support. On September 7, Jason Momoa shared an Instagram story with an image where Fisher was seen wearing a shirt which said, ‘I LOVE ZS’, meaning I Love Zack Snyder.
Investigations and more investigations
According to the statement issued by Warner Bros., Ray Fisher’s disappointment began when he had disagreements with the film’s creative team regarding his character of Cyborg and issued official complaints that his script versions were not given any thought.
On the other hand, after tremendous severe allegations, WarnerMedia initiated an investigation of the accusations made by the actor.
Still not satisfied, Mr. Fisher insisted that WarnerMedia hire an independent outside investigator said the studio executives, who further accused Fisher of not wanting to collaborate with them: “This investigator has tried several times to meet with Mr. Fisher to discuss his concerns but, to date, Mr. Fisher has refused to speak with the investigator.”
Ray Fisher denied that they did not cooperate in the investigation and said: “I met with the investigator through Zoom on August 26,” in addition to qualifying allegations WB. against him as a desperate and scattered attempt to discredit me to continue protecting those in power.
