At war with Warner since last year, when he went to social networks to denounce the abusive behavior of Joss Whedon in the Justice League remakes (2017), Ray Fisher again criticized the studio executives for trying to silence him and prevent him. to continue revealing toxic attitudes from its members. “I do not believe that some of these people serve to lead,” he fired.
In a long interview given to the Hollywood Reporter, the hero of the Cyborg interpreter said he did not want to end the career of those involved in the scandal, but questioned the professional capacity of all.
“I don’t believe that some of these people serve to lead. I don’t want them to be excommunicated from Hollywood, but I think they shouldn’t be in positions responsible for hiring or firing other professionals,” he said.
According to Fisher, his intention is to open the eyes of other artists and industry professionals about what actually happens behind the scenes of the studio. “If I can’t get them to be held responsible, at least I can make other people aware of who they’re dealing with,” he explained.
The actor’s crusade against Warner Bros. executives. it served for other people to also report bad experiences with Whedon, as in the case of the actress Charisma Carpenter, who worked with the director in Buffy: The Vampire Slayer (1997-2003) and Angel (1999-2004). However, Fisher also suffered from the consequences.
According to the star, he was confirmed in the cast of the Flash solo film to reprise his role as Cyborg. A conversation with director Andy Muschietti, in fact, had already taken place to explain what his role in the plot would be. Warner, however, decided to hinder its participation.
Fisher revealed to the report that the executives offered negligible value for their participation in the film. According to him, “a special participation price for two weeks of work on the set”. The actor refused the proposal and was accused of asking for double.
In September 2020, Warner said in a statement that, due to Fisher’s refusal to work again with Walter Hamada, the company’s boss, he would be out of the Flash movie. To the publication, the actor said he was not surprised by the decision.
“When I first spoke [sobre Whedon e a Warner], I assumed there was no way these guys would allow me to do my job in peace. I am not so indebted to Hollywood that I am not willing to leave, “he concluded.
