Justice League actor, Ray Fisher, revealed in a tweet Thursday that WarnerMedia will be launching a third-party investigation after allegations regarding the toxic and abusive work environment created by Geoff Johns, Joss Whedon, Jon Berg and others surfaced last month.
Whedon, the director of Marvel Studios’ blockbuster superhero movies “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” took over directing duties for Zack Snyder on DC Comics Justice League.
Fisher also stated that former Warner Bros. co-president of production Jon Berg, and former DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns both “enabled” Whedon.
As of now, only Berg has commented on the accusations. In a Variety article Berg said that it’s “categorically untrue that we enabled any unprofessional behavior.”
“I remember [Fisher] being upset that we wanted him to say ‘Booyaa,’ which is a well known saying of Cyborg in the [Teen Titans] animated series,” said Berg.
The animated series Berg was referring to was the popular Cartoon Network children’s show, “Teen Titans” from the early 2000s where Cyborg’s main catchphrase was “Booyaa.”
