WarnerMedia has concluded its investigation into the negative practices that reportedly occurred on the set of Justice League and action has been taken. 

It looks like the long-running dispute between Ray Fisher and WarnerMedia may finally be drawing to a close.

Fisher, who played Cyborg in 2017’s Justice League, broke cover a few months ago to let rip a tirade of criticism at key members of the film’s production team, accusing them of ‘gross and abusive’ practices on set, whilst also stating that ‘the erasure of people of colour’ from the film was no accident. 

WarnerMedia duly opened up an investigation and although that didn’t run entirely smoothly, with Fisher publicly criticising the process, it seems to have reached a conclusion.

Via a short press release, the company announced “WarnerMedia’s investigation into the Justice League movie has concluded and remedial action has been taken.”

The news was released late on Friday, keeping it largely out of the news cycle.

Deadline is reporting that, whilst the ‘remedial action’ itself hasn’t been clarified, it could be linked to Justice League‘s final director Joss Whedon – one of the persons accused by Fisher – being released by Warner’s sister company HBO from sci-fi drama The Nevers. That has not been confirmed however, although Whedon has left that show.

Fisher has commented, although his tweets too are fairly opaque, suggesting that although he may be privy to the ‘remedial action’ that has been taken, he is unable to share it.

He tweeted the messages below, following the announcement:

Whilst it seems that there may be more action yet to come, it’s highly likely that it will be handled internally. Still, Fisher at least seems satisfied and it is good to see the career risk he took, in calling out unacceptable practices on set, seemingly vindicated.

If we hear more on this one, we’ll let you now.
