Warner Bros. Responds To Ray Fisher Regarding His Allegations Of Abusive Conduct On Set

Warner Bros. answered back to ‘Justice League’ star Ray Fisher about his complaints regarding director Joss Whedon’s “gross, abusive” conduct on the DC movie set.

As remember, Fisher, who played ‘Cyborg’ in the film made a statement in July through Twitter and said that Whedon’s on-set treatment of the crew was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and unacceptable. The actor also accused the president of DC Entertainment Geoff Johns and producer Jon Berg of supporting the director in many ways.

After the allegations made by Fisher, an investigation conducted on the ‘Justice League’ production. Whereupon, on September 4, a Warner Bros. spokesperson issued the following statement as a response:

“In July, Ray Fisher’s representatives asked DC Films President Walter Hamada to talk to Mr. Fisher about his concerns during the production of Justice League. (…) In their July conversation, Mr. Fisher recounted disagreements he’d had with the film’s creative team regarding his portrayal of Cyborg and complained that his suggested script revisions were not adopted. Mr. Hamada explained that creative differences are a normal part of the production process and that a film’s writer/director ultimately has to be in charge of these matters. Notably, Mr. Hamada also told Mr. Fisher that he would elevate his concerns to WarnerMedia so they could conduct an investigation. At no time did Mr. Hamada ever ‘throw anyone under the bus,’ as Mr. Fisher has falsely claimed, or render any judgments about the Justice League production, in which Mr. Hamada had no involvement since filming occurred before Mr. Hamada was elevated to his current position.”

In the statement, it was expressed that WarnerMedia conducted an investigation into the concerns he had raised, and hired an independent third-party investigator. It continued:

“This investigator has attempted multiple times to meet with Mr. Fisher to discuss his concerns but, to date, Mr. Fisher has declined to speak to the investigator. Warner Bros. remains committed to accountability and to the well-being of every cast and crew member on each of its productions. It also remains committed to investigating any specific and credible allegation of misconduct, which thus far Mr. Fisher has failed to provide.”

Fisher has not commented on the statement of Warner Bros. yet.
