Joss Whedon Responds To Ray Fisher On “Justice League” Abuse Allegations

After years of silence, the director Joss Whedon finally responded to the actor’s accusations Ray Fisher about his behavior on the set of “Justice League”.

Remembered for series like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly”, as well as movies like “The Avengers” (2012), the director was accused in 2020 of racism and inappropriate behavior during the additional recordings of the DC movie, necessary following Zack Snyder’s departure following a family tragedy.

The accusations also included Warner Bros. and DC Comics executives such as Geoff Johns and Jon Berg, whom he accused of being permissive of the filmmaker’s behavior. Warner Bros. itself conducted an investigation that concluded with corrective actions that were never revealed, although shortly after its departure, Whedon was separated from the series “The Nevers” for HBO.

In dialogue with New York Magazine, Whedon stated that none of Fisher’s accusations were credible or worth discussing.

We are talking about a malevolent force. We are talking about a bad actor in both senses of the word“, he claimed.

One of Fisher’s main complaints against Whedon was that he allegedly tried to ‘lighten’ the pigmentation of actors of color. The director instead claimed that what he did was brighten the entire film during post-production, without concentrating on any particular actor.

On the reduction of Cyborg’s role in the film – which was restored by Zack Snyder’s version of “Justice League”, the filmmaker pointed out that it was because the hero’s story did not make sense.

At one point in the interview, Whedon hinted that the accusations coming out years after the fact had to do with Zack Snyder, stating that while he didn’t know who started it, “I know whose name it was made in.”

It should be noted that Fisher isn’t the only person to speak out about Whedon’s misbehavior during filming, with actress Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) revealing that the filmmaker threatened to end her career during filming. Meanwhile, actors like Jason Momoa showed their support for Ray Fisher.

Nor is it the only scandal that has engulfed the filmmaker, with actress Charisma Carpenter, Cordelia in “Buffy” and “Angel”, calling the filmmaker “cruel and hurtful” in his treatment at the beginning of 2021. Topping off these accusations, in 2017 his ex-wife Kai Cole accused Whedon of being a “hypocrite who preaches feminist ideals”, despite being involved in several infidelity scandals.

He cheated on me for 15 years so he could have everything he wanted. I believed, everyone believed, that I was one of the good guys, committed to fighting for women’s rights, for our marriage, and for the women I worked with. But now I see how he used his relationship with me as a shield, both during and after our marriage, so that no one would question his relationships with other women or review what he wrote as anything other than feminism.”, he wrote in a column in The Wrap.
