The parent company of Warner Bros. has also defended DC Films President Walter Hamada.
The statement from the studio has arrived in the aftermath of Ray Fisher’s outrage on Twitter against WarnerMedia and the President of DC films Walter Hamada.
And Ray Fisher was kind of expecting this.
Anyways, the fact of the matter is that after months of silence and the investigations that happened in between, WarnerMedia has finally come out and defended the most powerful man at the DC Films. Ray Fisher had recently stated that he would never work in a DC film if Walter Hamada stays in his position, and now it seems as if he will remain out of DC films for a while.
Even if Fisher has claimed that he will not reprise his role of Cyborg under the current circumstances, he clearly was not happy with the fact that the studio chose to oust him instead of delivering justice. The actor is now renowned for playing the character of Cyborg in the 2017 film “Justice League.”
Since last summer, Ray Fisher has been going out all guns blazing against WarnerMedia, the director of the 2017 film “Justice League” Joss Whedon, along with writer Geoff Johns and the President of the DC films Walter Hamada. The most fundamental part of Fisher’s accusation is that all of them created an unprofessional and toxic environment during the filming of the 2017 film Justice League.
In response to Fisher’s accusation, WarnerMedia initiated an investigation, which was outsourced to a law firm led by a former federal judge. Fisher was appalled by this fact, and the drama continued. The studio had hit out against Fisher, calling him very “uncooperative” in the entire matter.
As stated earlier, Ray Fisher had firmly stated before that he will not be playing the role of Ray Fisher up until Walter Hamada stays in charge of the DC Films. The statement led many fans to believe that Fisher’s time at DCEU has come to an abrupt end. In fact, he made a serious allegation on Twitter that WarnerMedia chose to oust him in order to defend Walter Hamada.
He had also stated that his fight against the big bosses at DC had refrained people like Walter Hamada from getting their way. He had further stated that Geoff Johns would soon join Joss Whedon in getting a ban from the WarnerMedia.
WarnerMedia has now clarified that they had never fired Ray Fisher from any role. The statement made by Ann Sarnoff, the Chief Executive Officer of DC Films, revealed that he was never fired. Only in the last summer was he offered a chance to replay his character Cyborg in the upcoming film “The Flash.” The statement added that the actor responded by denying to be a part of anything associated with Walter Hamada, so now the WarnerMedia, along with its allies, have decided to move ahead without him.
The CEO added that she firmly believes that Hamada is innocent in this whole issue, and he did not bend the narrative in any direction whatsoever. WarnerMedia has now bluntly said that Hamada has not interfered with anything.
Fisher has responded to her statements by saying that though he is not surprised with what has been said, he disagrees with it.
