Ray Fisher has taken to social media once more to outline some disturbing allegations about on-set practices during 2017’s Justice League.
It was widely reported earlier this week that Ray Fisher, the actor who played Cyborg in 2017’s Justice League, (and who has been written out of the planned FlashPoint movie, set for 2022, following his refusal to work with Walter Hamada, the head of WarnerMedia’s DC Films division) again levelled allegations at key figures in the DC Films organisation.
Fisher posted the following tweet on Twitter, offering an account of Hamada’s role in the investigation of the alleged ‘gross and abusive’ practices that took place on-set when Joss Whedon took control of the film from Zack Snyder.
Do ya’ll remember that time Walter Hamada and @wbpictures tried to destroy a Black man’s credibility, and publicly delegitimize a very serious investigation, with lies in the press?
But hey, Black Superman…

In return, former federal judge Katherine B Forrest – who conducted the investigation into Fisher’s allegations – made a public statement refuting Fisher’s claims.
Fisher has now taken to social media again, this time to speak in much greater detail about those ‘practices’, for the first time detailing specific instances of racist and abusive behaviour. The actor makes several allegations, offering, for the first time, key details as to how executives Toby Emmerich, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg were in his view implicated.

This marks the first time Fisher has outlined his complaints in such detail, and following WarnerMedia’s attempt to close the matter earlier this week, the controversial details within Fisher’s claims have instead escalated the matter. It’s unlikely WarnerMedia will be able to ignore this latest broadside from Fisher, although as yet, it has not responded.
More as we hear it.
