‘Justice League’: new details revealed on investigation against Geoff Johns and Joss Whedon

Ray Fisher recently posted a series of tweets to ignite controversies surrounding WarnerMedia’s internal investigation into abusive behavior on the Justice League set.

The Cyborg performer has pointed out that producer Geoff Johns will be the next to be fired from the company after Whedon leaves. However, Johns’ contract remains stable, contrary to the star’s expectations.

Because of this, he claims that WarnerMedia is protecting Johns and hiding his guilt … A few months ago, he even demanded the replacement of the investigation team.

However, reporter Umberto Gonzalez (The Wrap) released some details of the case, saying the whole operation was carried out by an outside law firm, saying Warner could not intervene.

In his Twitter profile, the reporter reproduced a statement from the studio, which says:

“’The investigation was conducted by an outside law firm and led by a former federal judge. Over 80 people were interviewed, ”WarnerMedia said in a statement on the investigations. “We have every confidence in its effectiveness and integrity, and corrective action has already been taken. The investigation is over and it’s time to move on. ”

Fisher has previously said that Walter Hamada, president of DC Films, also sympathizes with the abuse of Johns and Whedon.

As a result, he criticized the renewal of Hamada’s contract.

Fisher seemed annoyed to say that Warner “forgot to mention that Hamada was working with Johns at the same time as the” Justice League “remakes, when the abuse episodes were reported.

Check-out:

“It’s weird how these reactionary ads from Warner Bros. always forget to mention that Walter Hamada was working directly with Geoff Johns and Toby Emmerich (in ‘Shazam!’) DURING the remakes of ‘Justice League’. More soon. “

It’s weird how those reactionary announcements from @wbpictures always forget to mention that Walter Hamada was working directly with Geoff Johns and Toby Emmerich (on Shazam) DURING Justice League covers …

More soon.

Before that, the actor had said he would never work with Hamada again because of his lies.

“Walter Hamada is the most dangerous type of liar there is. His lies and the September 4 contact from the Warner Bros. press office. were aimed at undermining the real issues behind the Justice League investigation. I will not participate in any film produced by him, ”he said.

Walter Hamada is the most dangerous type of facilitator.

His lies, and WB PR’s failed September 4 hit play, sought to undermine the very real issues with the Justice League investigation.

I will not participate in any production associated with him.

Actor Ray Fisher has made serious accusations against director Joss Whedon, claiming executive producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg allowed “disgusting and abusive” behavior while filming “Justice League”.

“Joss Whedon’s treatment on set with the cast and crew of the ‘Justice League’ was disgusting, abusive, unprofessional and totally unacceptable. This was allowed, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Responsibility> Entertainment, ”he says.

Joss Wheadon’s on-set treatment of the Justice League cast and crew was rude, abusive, unprofessional and totally unacceptable.

It was empowered, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.

Shortly after, director Kevin Smith backed actor Ray Fisher and revealed more details about Joss Whedon’s behavior on the “ Justice League ” set.

According to him, there were already backstage stories that Joss Whedon was “denigrating” Zack Snyder’s work.

In the most recent episode of the Fatman Beyond podcast, Kevin Smith endorsed Fisher’s comments:

“One day I visited the set of The Ascension Skywalker, and I was talking to people who had worked on both versions of Justice League. Special effects specialists said Joss used to say bad things about Zack’s version [Snyder]. He cut, threw and was negative about the version of Zack he had watched and all of these people had done together. They said the whole thing was very toxic, ”he said.

The actor who lived the Cyborg even claimed that executive producer Geoff Johns even threatened his career. After the complaint, Warner Bros. began an investigation to uncover the truth behind the allegations.

Whedon and Johns have remained silent after Fisher’s claims in July.

However, recently Warner Bros. said the actor is not cooperating with investigations.

Read the full statement from Warner Bros:

In July, representatives for Ray Fisher asked DC Films President Walter Hamada to speak to Mr. Fisher about his concerns during the production of “Justice League.” The two had already spoken out when Mr Hamada asked him to rehearse his role as Cyborg in The Flash, along with other members of the Justice League. In his July conversation, Mr. Fisher pointed out disagreements with the film’s creative team regarding his portrayal of Cyborg and complained that the suggested revisions to the script had not been passed. Mr. Hamada explained that creative differences are an integral part of the production process and that the writer / director of a film should ultimately be responsible for these issues. Notably, Mr. Hamada also told Mr. Fisher that he would bring his concerns to WarnerMedia so that they could investigate.

Although Mr. Fisher never alleged misconduct against him, WarnerMedia nonetheless opened an investigation into concerns he had raised about his character’s portrayal. Still not satisfied, Fisher insisted that WarnerMedia hire an independent investigator. This investigator has made several attempts to meet with Mr. Fisher to discuss his concerns, but so far Mr. Fisher has refused to speak to the investigator. Warner Bros. remains committed to the responsibility and well-being of each member of the cast and crew in each of their productions. He also remains committed to investigating any specific and credible allegations of misconduct, which Fisher has so far failed to provide.

Remember that the role of the Cyborg has been drastically reduced in the Whedon remakes, but Zack Snyder has promised he will give the character the prominence he deserves in the film’s new cut, which is set to debut in 2021 on HBO Max.
