Ray Fisher’s dispute with Warner Bros. has dominated the news in the past two months. Fisher claims that he and his castmates were mistreated by director Joss Whedon while filming the Justice League reshoots. He also contends that executives Geoff Johns and Jon Berg covered up Whedon’s actions. Now, a new story from The Wrap may pour gasoline on the continued conflict between Fisher and Warner Bros. Pictures. According to the report, Fisher began speaking out after he was only offered a “small role” as Cyborg in The Flash movie.
Additionally, The Wrap’s sources say that “Warner Bros. has not heard back from Fisher’s team since offering the small role back in June — and plans for a standalone Cyborg movie have stalled.” The Wrap also reached out to Fisher’s representatives, and received the following message in response.
“Mr. Fisher is, and has been, under contract with WB Pictures since 2014. Per the terms of that pre-negotiated contract, the option to include Mr. Fisher as the character of Victor Stone (aka Cyborg) has always rested in the hands in WB Pictures.”
Fisher has recently claimed that the news about Ben Affleck’s return as Batman in The Flash was meant to distract from his accusations against Whedon, Johns, and Berg. Jason Momoa also asserted that his Frosty the Snowman movie with Johns and Berg was announced as a distraction. Momoa also contends that the cast was treated poorly on the set. However, Momoa is the only Justice League cast member to publicly back Fisher.
Fisher has now responded to the story, and essentially laughed it off as a smear attempt.
