Actor Ray Fisher, known for his role as Cyborg in the 2017 Justice League film and in the upcoming HBO Max miniseries, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, has been at odds with WarnerMedia for over a year following his experience while filming Justice League with replacement director Joss Whedon. Fisher claimed on Thursday in a Twitter thread that longtime DC mastermind and WarnerMedia executive Geoff Johns would be leaving as part of recently-announced “remedial action.”
Fisher has lobbed accusations at WarnerMedia itself, director Joss Whedon, executives Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, and most recently, DC Films president Walter Hamada. Just before the new year, Fisher called Hamada “the most dangerous kind of enabler,” and suggested that Hamada attempted to undermine the investigation into Fisher’s Justice League accusations. Fisher ended the tweet saying that he would “not participate in any production associated with [Hamada].’
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.

In the piece, TheWrap characterized Fisher as having resigned from the role. Fisher took issue with the description of the situation.
