Ever since Zack Snyder’s Justice League had been announced for HBO Max, Cyborg actor Ray Fisher had opened up about misconduct from the likes of Joss Whedon and producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Due to an NDA, Fisher is legally obligated not to spill too much information on what happened behind the scenes, but now he’s just made a new tweet about Johns.
Check it out:
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.

When Fisher originally called out Whedon, he had mentioned that Johns and Berg were ‘enablers’ and that they allowed for the mistreatment of the cast and crew to continue. We don’t know when his next ‘update’ will be, but he sure is making these reveals close to the chest, what with DC preparing for its own virtual event, FanDome, which takes place in a few weeks.
For now, we’re still pretty clueless from what actually went down during the JL reshoots. Word had it that Whedon was trashing on Snyder’s original vision for the film, which was in poor taste, granted that Snyder had to leave the movie due to a family tragedy. Besides that, Whedon is being blamed for some of the more crass moments in the film, specifically the one where Flash plants his face in Wonder Woman’s chest.
If anything, Fisher looks to be building up to something, and fans are all eager to hear what he has to say. As of now, I’m curious what WB is thinking with this, but it’s likely they’ll side with Fisher, granted that he has the public on his side.
For now, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is set to come out on HBO Max sometime in 2021.
