According to this statement, it seems that Fisher has been pushing back against the internal investigation that Warner Bros. is conducting. The statement also claims that Fisher’s earlier report of Hamada attempting to throw others “under the bus” is false and that he has provided no suitable evidence to support his allegations.
The specifics of what exactly is going on behind the scenes here is unclear, with both parties clearly coming out in support of their points of view. However, it seems that if Fisher doesn’t cooperate with the investigator that Warner Bros. has arranged, that the case will be closed.
Warner Bros. has issued an official response, as reported by The Wrap, which claims that Fisher has been uncooperative with the studios attempts to investigate these allegations. The full statement is below:
In July, Ray Fisher’s representatives asked DC Films President Walter Hamada to talk to Mr. Fisher about his concerns during the production of “Justice League.” The two had previously spoken when Mr. Hamada asked him to reprise his role as Cyborg in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Flash movie, together with other members of the Justice League. In their July conversation, Mr. Fisher recounted disagreements he’d had with the film’s creative team regarding his portrayal of Cyborg, and complained thathis suggested script revisions were not adopted. Mr. Hamada explained that creative differences are a normal part of the production process, and that a film’s writer/director ultimately has to be in charge of these matters. Notably, Mr. Hamada also told Mr. Fisher that he would elevate his concerns to WarnerMedia so they could conduct an investigation. At no time did Mr. Hamada ever “throw anyone under the bus,” as Mr. Fisher has falsely claimed, or render any judgments about the “Justice League”This investigator has attempted multiple times to meet with Mr. Fisher to discuss his concerns but, to date, Mr. Fisher has declined to speak to the investigator. Warner Bros. remains committed to accountability and to the well-being of every cast and crew member on each of its productions. It also remains committed to investigating any specific and credible allegation of misconduct, which thus far Mr. Fisher has failed to provide.Borys Kit, a writer for The Hollywood Reporter, has shared that Fisher is in talks to reprise his role as Victor Stone / Cyborg in the Ezra Miller-led The Flash, which further complicates this situation
What is complicating all this back and forth is that Fisher is deep in talks/negotiations to reprise Cyborg for THE FLASH movie. https://t.co/ozLA7amwzv
