Cyborg Actor Ray Fisher took to Twitter today asking The Wrap to immediately amend an article where they stated he stepped down from the role. Their article published after Fisher said he would not work with DC Films President Walter Hamada.
“Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler,” Fisher said. “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. He was recently brought on for another three years.
“If Warner Bros. has made the decision to remove me from The Flash, rather than address, in any way, Walter Hamada tampering with the JL investigation—that’s on them,” Fisher tweeted today. “The idea of removing the role, rather than recasting it, is only being used to try to avoid public backlash.”
Fisher continued to state that the Warner Public Relations team attempted to bury him, and the investigation into misconduct on the Justice League set, in an article that he calls a “hit piece.”
The third party investigation ensued by Warner Media resulted in the company severing ties with Joss Whedon, who took over directing duties for Zack Snyder on DC Comics Justice League.
Fisher commented earlier this year stating Wheadon’s on set treatment of cast and crew members of Justice League earlier this month stating the director was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.”
“My team and I are still in deep conversation with Warner Media regarding all these matters and—Flash or no Flash—we fully intend to see this through,” Fisher said.
