Ray Fisher reveals his Cyborg character is being REMOVED from The Flash – Daily Mail

Actor Ray Fisher’s ongoing battle with Warner Bros. has taken yet another turn, with the actor’s Victor Stone/Cyborg character now being removed entirely from the upcoming movie The Flash.

The 33-year-old actor made his feature film debut in a cameo as Cyborg in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, before 2017’s Justice League.

Fisher made headlines last summer when he accused Joss Whedon, who directed the Justice League reshoots after Zack Snyder left due to a family tragedy, behaved improperly and unprofessionally on the set.

The actor took to Twitter on Tuesday to issue a lengthy statement about his removal from The Flash, which comes just two weeks after he stated he would refuse to work with DC Films president Walter Hamada, who he called, ‘the most dangerous kind of enabler.’

‘I have received official confirmation that Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to remove me from the cast of The Flash,’ Fisher’s lengthy statement began.

He added that, ‘despite the misconception, Cyborg’s involvement in The Flash was much more than a cameo – and while I do mourn the lost opportunity to bring Victor Stone back to the screen, bringing awareness to the actions of Walter Hamada will prove to be a much more important contribution to the world.’

Fisher also reiterated his statement made on December 30, where he said that he could no longer, ‘participate in any production associated with the current president of DC Films, Walter Hamada.’

The actor claimed Hamada purposefully attempted to ‘undermine’ the investigation he initiated into the Justice League reshoots, in an effort to protect his friend Geoff Johns.

Fisher added that Hamada lied in his September 4 statement, which claimed that Fisher refused to meet with third-party investigators, which Fisher maintains is a lie.

He went on to say that Hamada’s behavior wasn’t a focus of the investigation, though Fisher adds his ‘dangerous and enabling actions must be called to account.’

Fisher first spoke out about Joss Whedon’s behavior in July, stating through Twitter, ‘Joss Wheadon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable. He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg,’ with the latter the head of DC Films while Justice League was in production.

Hamada was brought in as DC Films president in 2018 after the critical and commercial failure of Justice League.

Just days after Fisher’s initial tweets, the actor says he had a ‘fifty-seven minute long phone call’ with Hamada, where he tried to get Hamada to ‘escalate’ Fisher’s claims against Whedon, Johns and Berg, ‘through the proper channels.’

Instead, Hamada, ‘disparaged Joss Whedon and Jon Berg in an attempt to cover for Geoff Johns,’ though when Fisher told Hamada that Johns, ‘was a major contributor to the issues experienced – including blatant racism – Walter tried, but to no avail, to get me to reveal the names of witnesses and other specifics’ so he could warn Johns about the claims against him.

Hamada even dismissed Fisher’s claims against Johns due to his own personal relationship working with Johns.

Hamada had even told Fisher that he was made aware of Whedon’s behavior on set before Fisher came forward, adding that it was the producer’s job to ‘protect the director.

Hamada eventually agreed to ‘escalate’ Fisher’s claims, adding it was above his pay grade, and made a ‘tastelessly self-aware joke’ about not putting him on Twitter.

Since the investigation was launched, WarnerMedia has parted ways with Whedon, while exposing, ‘the racist, coercive, discriminatory and retaliatory behavior’ of Johns.

Fisher added his responsibilities now are to ‘try to protect those who were brave enough to lend their voice to the Justice League investigation,’ and to ensure what happened on the Justice League reshoots and the investigation that followed ‘never happens again.’

The actor concluded his statement by maintaining that Walter Hamada is, ‘unfit for a position of leadership,’ adding he is willing to submit to a polygraph to support all of the claims he has made against Hamada.

‘I don’t know how many instances of workplace abuse Walter has attempted to cover in the past, but hopefully the Justice League investigation will be the last,’ Fisher said.
