More people are starting to speak up about toxic work environments and besides the people over at the Ellen show, Cyborg actor Ray Fisher has named Joss Whedon for ‘abusive’ behavior on the set of Justice League, calling out producers Jon Berg and Geoff Johns for being ‘enablers’. With Fisher getting backlash for his statements, he is adamant about making Whedon, Berg, and Johns accountable for their actions.
We don’t know the specifics of the risks that Fisher is taking, but it has been said that he can’t go into detail about these ‘abuses’ because of an NDA he had signed with Warner Bros; if anything, WB is said to have the right to sue him if he speaks out about his experiences making Justice League.
So far, we don’t have any solid details on what Whedon did on set, but some word is going around that he was being very rude and arrogant in front of everyone, trashing Snyder’s original plans for the movie. Take note that Snyder had left the project due to the loss of his daughter, so you could say that trashing on him would have been in very poor taste—if these rumors turn out to be true.
We don’t know how Fisher plans on moving forward with these statements, but I have a feeling that the public is now behind him. If WB does intend to keep him quiet with an NDA, then it’s just going to turn out worse for the studio.
Hopefully, Fisher gets to speak his truth, because I just want to know what exactly went down on that set.
For now, fans wait for Snyder’s original version of Justice League which is set to hit HBO Max sometime in 2021.
