Ray Fisher done working with DC Films President Walter Hamada

1 min read

Cyborg star Ray Fisher said he will not work on any film associated with DC Films President Walter Hamada following a third party investigation into the toxic work environment on the set of 2017’s Justice League reshoots.

WarnerMedia said in a statement on Dec. 11 that it had concluded its investigation into the set of “Justice League.”

“WarnerMedia’s investigation into the ‘Justice League’ movie has concluded and remedial action has been taken,” the statement reads.

“Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler,” Fisher tweeted on Wednesday. “He lies, and WB PR’s failed Sept. 4th hit-piece, sought to undermine the very real issues of the ‘Justice League’ investigation. I will not participate in any production associated with him.”

Hamada became president of DC Films in 2018, after “Justice League” first debuted in theaters to mixed reviews and low box office returns.

Fisher’s tweet also included a link to a recent interview with Hamada by the New York Times. The interview saw Hamada discussing the future of DC Films where he referred to Snyder’s four part HBO Max special expanded version of “Justice League” as “a storytelling cul-du-sac” that holds no connection to upcoming projects.

Earlier this year Fisher commented on Wheadon’s on set treatment of cast and crew members of Justice League stating the director was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.”

Fisher first made his accusations public in July, and the WarnerMedia investigation began in August.

According to Fisher, former Warner Bros. co-president of production Jon Berg, and former DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns, both “enabled” Whedon.

Berg and Johns served as producers on “Justice League.”

Fisher played the superhero Cyborg alongside Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Ezra Miller’s the Flash.
