A few months ago, Ray Fisher revealed how unhappy it was to work with Joss Whedon in Justice League. After his serious statements, Jason Momoa came to his defense and to show support.
It's been almost three years since Justice League premiered and we continue to talk about it practically daily. On the one hand we have Zack Snyder who is finally going to launch on HBO Max a version of the film that he can be proud of, which will arrive in a miniseries format with four episodes and 214 minutes of footage; on the other side is Ray Fisher, Cyborg in the movie, who has an open war against Joss Whedon, Snyder's replacement director in his day. And apparently his peers, including Jason Mamoa, support the actor.
This war began last June with an enigmatic attack on Twitter that later turned into a much stronger accusation, dismissing Joss Whedon as having an “abusive” and “disgusting” attitude on the set: “It was unprofessional and completely unacceptable. Geoff Johns and Jon Berg allowed it in many ways. ” Ray Fisher claims to have been building a case against the director for two years and Warner Bros. has had to initiate an internal investigation.
But in the midst of this confrontation of accusations and complaints, the actor is not alone and Jason Momoa, Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe and partner of ‘Justice League’, has decided to show his full support publicly. Momoa posted on Monday, September 7, a story on Instagram with a photo of Fisher wearing a shirt that says “I Love ZS”, that is, “I love Zack Snyder”, which Fisher proudly shared on Twitter: “Responsibility> Entertainment”.

Investigations and more investigations
According to the statement released by Warner Bros., Ray Fisher's disappointment began when he had disagreements with the film's creative team regarding his portrayal of Cyborg and complained that the script revisions he suggested were not adopted. “However, WarnerMedia initiated an investigation into the concerns that he had raised about the performance of his character. Still not satisfied, Mr. Fisher insisted that WarnerMedia hire an independent outside investigator, “said study executives, who further accused Fisher of not wanting to collaborate with them:” This investigator has tried several times to meet with Mr. Fisher to discuss his concerns but, to date, Mr. Fisher has refused to speak with the investigator. “
Ray Fisher denied that he was uncooperative in the investigation, stating, “I met with the investigator via Zoom on August 26,” in addition to qualifying WB's allegations. against him as a “desperate and scattered attempt to discredit me in order to continue protecting those in power”.
