Cyborg Actor Shares More Comments About Joss Whedon During Justice Con
The Justice League actor shows up to a virtual convention to talk more about the situation with Whedon.
While the focus of the weekend was Comic-Con@Home, there was another virtual convention over the weekend: Justice Con. The Justice League-themed fan event, which is not connected to Warner Bros., had an interview with director Zack Snyder--who showed off a new scene for the Snyder Cut--and one with Justice League's Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the film. During the panel, Fisher discussed more about the alleged conditions with Joss Whedon--who replaced director Zack Snyder during production--at the helm of the superhero movie.
"What I will say toward the Joss Whedon situation is obviously I put out some pretty strong words and some pretty strong comments about Joss Whedon, and every single one of those words, every single one of those comments, is true,” Fisher explained (via Variety).
Fisher is referring to his comments in early July where he said, "Joss Wheadon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable."
Producer Jon Berg would later deny that he helped enable any unprofessional behavior, which Fisher directly responded to during the panel. "It's taken me two and a half years to get all the information I need to be able to build that something that’s strong enough so people can't dismiss it," Fisher said. "We're gonna get to the heart of everything. And if anything I said about that man is untrue, I invite him wholeheartedly to sue me for libel, to sue me for slander.
"His denial of the situation, his denial of the enabling of that situation was asinine, it was tone deaf, and it was completely disrespectful to the situation. That man is scared. He should also be, because we're going to get to the heart of it. And if you keep in mind, he did not deny that there was any unprofessional behavior. He did not deny knowing about any individual behavior. He said that we--meaning, assuming 'Geoff Johns and myself'--'we did not enable any unprofessional behavior.' You can look at that statement and tell it's a knee jerk statement of an individual who is scared."
In December 2019, Zack Snyder confirmed the existence of his cut of Justice League, and in May 2020, the Snyder Cut of Justice League was announced for HBO Max--WarnerMedia's new streaming service. However, it won't arrive until 2021. The first clip of the movie shows off the villain Darkseid--one of DC's most powerful baddies. However, this specific cut of the movie won't be canon with the rest of the DCEU.
