Ray Fisher took to social media to “forcefully retract” his support for Joss Whedon on Monday. However, things have quickly taken a dramatic turn with Fisher, who is known for playing Cyborg in Justice League, tweeting about Whedon’s on-set behaviour.
Warner Bros. hired Whedon to ‘finish’ Justice League. Emphasis on ‘finish’. But it appears as though the director was incredibly difficult to work with. Prompting Fisher to call Whedon’s behavior gross, abusive and unprosessional.

Joss Wheadon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.— Ray Fisher (@ray8fisher) July 1, 2020
He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.
At the moment it is unclear as to what actually transpired on set. However, we could get more details in the coming days from Fisher himself or other witnesses. Considering the language used by Fisher it seems pretty serious. It will also be interesting to see if any of his cast mates respond to such accusations.
However, judging by Jason Momoa’s expression in the video from Monday, we wouldn’t be surprised if Aquaman chips in to this latest piece of drama.
While Whedon is most definitely the main target of this tweet, Ray Fisher does call out Geoff Johns and John Berg for enabling Whedon to act in such a manner. It will be interesting to see the fallout of this.
Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. Joining them are Jason Mamoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash.
