‘Justice League’ Actor Ray Fisher Accuses Joss Whedon of ‘Gross, Abusive’ Behavior on Set

Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the 2017 film “Justice League” took to Twitter to rip director Joss Whedon over his alleged behavior on set…

Ray Fisher — who played Cyborg in the 2017 film “Justice League” — took aim at director Joss Whedon in a pair of tweets aimed at the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator after he took over work on the movie following a tragedy in Zack Snyder’s family.

Whedon, who previously directed “The Avengers” and “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” for Marvel, was brought in as a replacement for Snyder, who dropped out of “Justice League” after his daughter committed suicide.

A few days ago, Fisher posted a video from San Diego Comic Con where he praised Whedon as the perfect choice to replace Snyder except this time he captioned it with “I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement.”

Then on Wednesday, Fisher unleashed a firestorm on Whedon in a separate message on Twitter where accused the director of abhorrent behavior on the set of “Justice League.”

“Joss Whedon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable,” Fisher wrote.
“He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Accountability>Entertainment.”

Fisher didn’t expand on that tweet by further explaining what exactly happened on set with Whedon but obviously he was not happy with the relationship he shared with the director after he took over on “Justice League.” To date, none of the other actors who starred alongside Fisher in “Justice League” have addressed Whedon or his alleged behavior on set.

While Warner Bros. did not issue any kind of statement in response to Fisher’s claims, Berg issued a brief statement to Variety refuting any problems on set that reflected the nature of the original tweet.

“I remember [Fisher] being upset that we wanted him to say ‘Booyaa,’ which is a well known saying of Cyborg in the animated series,” Berg said.

Whedon hasn’t addressed the controversy directly but Alan Tudyk, who worked with him on several projects including “Firefly” and “Dollhouse,” came to his defense after working together for nearly two decades.

There has been a lot of discussion surrounding “Justice League” in recent weeks after Warner Bros. announced plans to release Snyder’s cut of the film on HBO Max in 2021.
