WarnerMedia has reportedly launched an investigation into the production of “Justice League” following repeated public statements by actor Ray Fisher alleging misconduct by filmmaker Joss Whedon and producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg during the film’s covers.
There are no specific conclusions or timelines yet, and it is said that the investigation is not limited to these three names. In order to preserve the integrity of the investigation, the company will not conduct it in the public sphere.
Fisher, who plays Cyborg in the film, tweeted earlier today that WarnerMedia had hired an independent third party to investigate its allegations. He also suggested that the then-ongoing merger of Time Warner and AT&T provided cover for the alleged behavior.
Despite his public statements, Fisher has provided no concrete details or corroboration of his claims. The news comes just two days before Snyder appears at the DC FanDome fan convention to reveal a new take on his highly anticipated “Snyder Cut” from “Justice League”.
The full version of “Justice League” directed by Snyder is set to debut on HBO Max in 2021.
