Justice League star Ray Fisher shares essay current problems with WB; officially fired from The Flash solo movie
Justice League star Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg aka Victor Stone, has gone on the record to state that he is no longer part of the upcoming “The Flash” movie starring Ezra Miller and its still because of his ongoing battle against the bigwigs at Warner Bros Pictures namely Walter Hamada and by extension, Geoff Johns.
The tl;dr story here was that back when they were doing reshoots for Justice League under the helm of Joss Whedon, Ray Fisher encountered negative behavior from the director and producer, Geoff Johns including reportedly racist behavior towards him. When he came out about this there were several people who stood behind him including Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa.
His statements made headlines and prompted WB to do an investigation over the matter. This is where we currently are now with Fisher. Apparently, he was originally part of “The Flash” movie with a significant role but he has learned that he has been written off from the script.
In a set of tweets, he writes:
“I have received official confirmation that Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to remove me from the cast of The Flash,” Fisher began. “I strongly disagree with their decision, but it is one that is unsurprising. Despite the misconception, Cyborg’s involvement in The Flash was much larger than a cameo—and while I do mourn the lost opportunity to bring Victor Stone back to the screen, bringing awareness to the actions of Walter Hamada will prove to be a much more important contribution to our world.”
“On December 30th 2020, I made it clear that I cannot—with a clear conscience—participate in any production associated with the current President of DC Films, Walter Hamada,” he continued. “The reasoning behind that declaration was twofold: 1) Walter’s purposeful attempt to undermine the Justice League investigation in order to protect his friend, and former co-president, Geoff Johns. 2) Walter’s attempt to protect himself by contributing to the public dissemination of lies and misinformation about myself and the Justice League investigation in Warner Bros. Picture’ September 4th statement to The Wrap.”
“Bear in mind, Walter Hamada interfering with the Justice League investigation is a completely separate issue than the investigation itself,” Fisher added. “And while Walter’s behavior was not a point of focus for the investigation of the Justice League reshoots, his dangerous and enabling actions during the investigation process must be called to account.”
