Aquaman himself Jason Momoa strongly reiterates his support for his Justice League co-star Ray Fisher via social media.
Having, in no uncertain terms, strongly refuted the impartiality of Warner Media’s investigation into the ‘gross and abusive’ culture on the set of 2017’s Justice League, Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the movie, continues to stand by his claims. For an overview of this increasingly acrimonious dispute thus far, we covered it here.
Fisher’s argument is that certain members of the production team including replacement director Joss Whedon and producer Geoff Johns were guilty of creating a toxic work environment and should be held to account. Those accusations have been denied.
One week ago, Fisher was supported in his stance by fellow Justice League star, Jason Momoa, also the lead of the connected Aquaman franchise. Momoa shared his solidarity online for Fisher via the hashtag #istandwithrayfisher. Now, in the same way that Fisher has refused to stay silent throughout the summer, it seems that Momoa is also set on making himself heard. The actor released the following post on Instagram, making his feeling abundantly clear:
This shit has to stop and needs to be looked at @rayfisher and everyone else who experience what happened under the watch of @wbpictures needs proper investigation … I just think it’s fucked up that people released a Fake Frosty announcement without my permission to try to distract from Ray Fisher speaking up about the shitty way we were treated on Justice League reshoots. Serious stuff went down.
Despite having several more projects lined up with Warner Bros. Momoa seems unfazed about voicing his dissent and supporting his colleague. Momoa seems particularly incensed that Warner Media released an announcement about his involvement with its in-production Frosty the Snowman project on the same day Fisher denounced the Justice League investigation as a sham, believing it to be a distracting tactic designed to draw eyes away from Fisher’s claims.
Fisher has since gone online to underline Momoa’s points and this story looks set to continue for some time. The rest of the Justice League cast are yet to publicly comment, but frankly, Fisher and Momoa are speaking loudly enough for them all right now. More news on this one as we have it.
