The upcoming Flash movie was set to feature Ray Fisher in the role of Cyborg again – but those plans have been changed.
Well, you could certainly read this one in the tea leaves. Ray Fisher, the actor who plays Cyborg in the DC Films universe recently stated that he would never work for the firm whilst it was headed up by who he called the “dangerous enabler” Walter Hamada.
This followed the news last week that Hamada’s tenure in the job had been extended by WarnerMedia.
This inevitably meant that Ray Fisher’s spot in the DC Films universe had become untenable for him. As such, The Wrap is reporting that Fisher’s character, which was reported to be a cameo appearance, has been written out of the film’s screenplay and will not be recast.
Although Fisher has yet to respond to this occurrence, it may well be that this marks the end of the long-running dispute between the actor and WarnerMedia, which first began last year when Fisher accused Joss Whedon and other producers of 2017’s Justice League of “gross and abusive practices”.
An investigation into the matter was later concluded by WarnerMedia, although Fisher refused to co-operate with it and questioned its integrity.
Hopefully, the actor’s future won’t be damaged by his choice to speak out against the injustices he felt were being perpetrated on the set of Justice League – although it’s clearly already cost him one role. The FlashPoint movie meanwhile, is slated to arrive in 2022.
