In recent months, actor Ray Fisher has become the subject of controversy after accusing director Joss Whedon and producer Geoff Johns of abusive behavior behind the scenes of “Justice League.”
Since then, Cyborg’s interpreter has worked with authorities hired by Warner Bros to investigate what happened.
In a lengthy post on his official Instagram account, the Aquaman performer further revealed that some very serious things happened behind the scenes of the Whedon remakes, claiming that Warner leaked a fake casting announcement for a new one. studio film, in order to drown out Fisher’s revelations.
“This shit has to stop and has to be seen carefully. Ray Fisher and everyone who lived through what happened before Warner Bros. need a proper investigation. I just think some crazy people blurted out a bogus Frosty ad, without my permission, to try and distract from Ray Fisher talking about the *** way we were treated in the League rewrites. Justice. Serious things have happened. It needs to be investigated and people need to be held accountable. “
The fake Frosty ad, which Momoa refers to, reportedly references a story from the Deadline portal, which states that Momoa was cast to play Frosty the Snowman in a Warner Bros. movie.
Momoa suggests the studio leaked the ad to distract from the Fisher controversy.

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 spoken to each other before 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. The 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.
It’s worth remembering that the role of the Cyborg has been drastically reduced in the Whedon remakes, but Zack Snyder has promised that he will give the character the prominence they deserve in the film’s new cut, which is set to debut in 2021 on HBO Max.
