It seems that JUSTICE LEAGUE star, Ray Fisher has more to get off of his cybernetic chest than just what he tweeted a day prior. Fisher who plays Cyborg in the film recently retracted his support of theatrical director, Joss Whedon, who stepped in to replace director Zack Snyder after the unfortunate death of his daughter.
I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement: pic.twitter.com/1ECwwu6TG1

It is no secret that many of Fisher’s scenes in the superhero team up film were cut and eventually plans for his solo film were scrapped. But as of today more has come out why Fisher has retracted his support.
In a tweet this morning Fisher with further with describing the treatment he experienced with Whedon on-set. He says, “Joss Whedon’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. Accountability>Entertainment.”

It also needs to be mentioned that yesterday he praised director/writer Zack Snyder and co-writer Chris Terrio.
I don’t praise Chris Terrio and @ZackSnyder for simply putting me in Justice League.
I praise them for EMPOWERING me (a black man with no film credits to his name) with a seat at the creative table and input on the framing of the Stones before there was even a script! #BORGLIFE pic.twitter.com/hbshWFkxrJ

Many fans blame Whedon for the theatrical box office flop of the film. Claiming his “butchered Snyder’s vision” while “changing it to his own”. We are going to see the full vision in which Snyder envisioned when the Snyder Cut version of JUSTICE LEAGUE is released on HBO Max in May of 2021.
