An ongoing investigation from Warner Bros into on-set conduct on 2017’s Justice League movie has now been made public.
Warner Media has confirmed that an investigation has been ongoing into the conduct on the production of 2017’s Justice League. The filming of the superhero tentpole has been plagued by rumours and accusations of ‘toxic and abusive’ work practices employed by director Joss Whedon, after he stepped in to fill original helmer Zac Synder’s spot, when he left the production after a personal tragedy.
The rumours entered the public domain after a tweet earlier this summer from Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in the movie, condemning Whedon’s behaviour on set. Now, Warner Media have announced that an investigation has been underway since the beginning of July, and what’s more, it’s being conducted by an independent third party. Fisher has tweeted again in response to this news, praising the investigation as a ‘MASSIVE step forward.’
Deadline have the original report here. The investigation has been made public at an opportune time for Warner Media as they are about to begin a fresh wave of publicity for the Snyder Cut of the film, which will presumably be heavily featured at their DC Fandome event this weekend.
