Ray Fisher demands WarnerMedia release findings of investigation

Ray Fisher reignites the ongoing row with WarnerMedia following the company’s CEO praising its response to his allegations.

Although the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League seems to resolve some elements of the ongoing Justice League saga, elsewhere, other threads are proving more difficult for WarnerMedia to put to bed.

WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff has already announced that no more Zack Snyder DC films will be forthcoming and indeed, no David Ayer cut of Suicide Squad will ever see the light of day. However, there is one unresolved story that simply refuses to go away.

In the wake of Zack Snyder’s Justice League's release, Ray Fisher has been promoting the film, which sees his role as Cyborg become significantly developed with a fully-fledged narrative trajectory that places his character at the heart of the movie.

However, whilst Fisher has been happy to support Snyder’s vision, promoting the film online, it doesn’t mean that he’s signalling a truce with WarnerMedia regarding his dispute with the company’s higher-ups about the ‘gross and abusive practices’ that he claims took place on the set of Justice League under the watch of replacement director Joss Whedon.

As such, Fisher has once again been banging the drum online, demanding that now the film is released, WarnerMedia also releases the results of its investigation into the goings-on during the film’s production.

Whilst speaking to Variety, Sarnoff said that she considers the investigation closed, with no evidence to support Fisher’s claims that DC Films president Walter Hamada tried to block the investigation, stating “our investigator, Judge Katherine Forrest, has issued statements specifically about Walter Hamada, saying that there was no evidence of interference by Walter in the investigation. She said that the cuts made in the Joss Whedon version of Justice League were not racially motivated. We took it very seriously, so we hired one of the top investigators out there and gave her a tremendous amount of leeway.”

Sarnoff also stated that she was not aware of an NDA that Fisher has signed, meaning he is unable to share his account of what actually happened on the set of Justice League. Fisher has responded in kind to this statement, releasing five tweets that blast Sarnoff’s comments.

As you can see, Fisher continues to lambast WarnerMedia online for its response to his claims, especially what he believes as an attempt to cover things up by Hamada. Whilst the film may finally be out in the world, Fisher’s final statement ‘The proof is there. More soon’ suggests that WarnerMedia may be dealing with the fallout from this for some time to come.
