Ray Fisher, known for playing the role of Victor Stone or Cyborg in DC’s big superhero team-up movie Justice League, has claimed that the behaviour of Joss Whedon on the set of Justice League was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.”

On Twitter, Fisher wrote, “Joss Wheadon’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.”

Joss Whedon was already attached as the screenwriter on Justice League when he was given director duties by Warner Bros in the absence of Zack Snyder, who had to leave the project due to a personal tragedy. Berg was one of the film’s producers.

Under Whedon’s direction, Justice League underwent numerous reshoots and the resulting product had a muddled tone (clearly because it was a product of two directors).

The film was critically dismissed, and despite being one of the most expensive movies ever made could only gross about 650 million dollars.

Responding to Fisher, producer Jon Berg told Variety it’s “categorically untrue that we enabled any unprofessional behavior.” He added, “I remember [Fisher] being upset that we wanted him to say ‘Booyaa,’ which is a well known saying of Cyborg in the animated series.”
