Actor Ray Fisher has said that he won’t work on any project associated with DC Films President Walter Hamada.

Earlier this month, WarnerMedia confirmed that its investigation into Fisher’s allegations of “abusive” behaviour by Joss Whedon on the set of Justice League had come to an end, with unspecified “remedial action” being taken.

Whedon was brought in to take over directing from Zack Snyder on the 2017 superhero film, with Cyborg actor Fisher claiming in July that his “on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable”.

On Wednesday (30 December), Fisher shared a New York Times interview with Hamada on Twitter, in which Hamada said that Snyder’s forthcoming recut of Justice League was a  “storytelling cul-du-sac” with no connection to new DC projects.

“Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler,” Fisher tweeted.

“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.”

The Independent had contacted WarnerMedia for comment.

In November, Whedon exited HBO series The Nevers before its 2021 debut, attributing his departure to challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Fisher claimed that his departure was linked to the investigation, tweeting: “WarnerMedia’s JL investigation has been in full swing for over three weeks now. This is undoubtedly a result of it.”
