Following the report that Walter Hamada will be extending his contract as president of DC Films, Cyborg actor Ray Fisher immediately showed his distaste of the news. He doubled down on his accusations. The actor’s latest tweet was a direct response to the news that Hamada’s contract extension.
It was only recently that Fisher accused Hamada of being an enabler. He added that he will not participate in any projects under Hamada. The actor wrote on Twitter, “Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler. His 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. A>E." A<E refers to Accountability > Entertainment. This particular tweet was a response to Hamada’s interview with The New York Times, regarding plans that DC Films will be releasing up to six movies per year.
It’s weird how these 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 reshoots...— Ray Fisher (@ray8fisher) January 6, 2021
In the latest report of Hamada’s contract extension, Fisher called Warner Bros weird for its reactionary announcements. The actor may seemingly believe that the announcement of Hamada’s contract extension may refer to his statement that he will not work in any DC project under Hamada which is why he called it a ‘reactionary announcement’. He said, "It's weird how these reactionary announcements from [Warner Bros.] always forget to mention that Walter Hamada was working directly with Geoff Johns and Toby Emmerich (on Shazam) DURING Justice League reshoots...More soon. A>E. #WalterKnew," Fisher tweeted.
Fisher accused director Joss Whedon of misconduct, adding his abusive on-set behavior during his time directing Justice League. He also accused Toby Emmerich and Geoff Johns of enabling Whedon. After Hamada’s interview on their plans with DC, he included the DC Films president on the list.
Fisher’s Cyborg will not be part of The Flash. It is unknown whether Cyborg’s absence in the film is due to Fisher’s issues with studio executives or the character is not needed for the movie.
Fisher has appeared as Cyborg in two DC films; Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. He will next reprise the role in Zack Snyder's Justice League.
