Ray Fisher confirmed the investigation in a Tweet earlier today. Bringing his months long campaign to a head as the investigation will be independent and thorough.
After 5 weeks of interviews with various cast/crew, @WarnerMedia has officially launched an independent third-party investigation to get to the heart of the toxic and abusive work environment created during Justice League reshoots.
This will inevitably surprise some people, as the last update we had from Ray Fisher was concerning the NDA he had signed for Justice League. Most of the followers on his comments took that as meaning that he had no legal recourse to do anything about the claims. Or at the very least, some people took it to mean that Ray Fisher had no actual reason to complain, or that his claims were false.
Only a short couple of days after that claim, Ray Fisher took to social media again to clarify his stance on Joss Whedon. Calling him abusive, toxic and an absolute pain to deal with on set. Saying that Whedon was constantly belittling and ruining the film almost out of spite, at least to his eyes. In that same moment, he threw longtime producer Geoff Johns under the bus, saying that Johns was just as responsible for the environment.
Then, there was some silence around the topic for a week or so. Ray Fisher came back to social media, and clarified how he was unable to provide specific details until something else was in order. Citing that there were legal issues surrounding his NDA that prevented specifics.
more people coming forward and saying that Whedon was indeed, incredibly toxic
Of course, all of this will be a moot point in that the investigation finds no wrong in Whedon or the producers who enabled his actions. Until we know for certain, it’s all hearsay and it’s Fisher’s word against Whedons. Yet, even now, months later, Whedon has said absolutely nothing on the matter, which doesn’t exactly help his looking guilty.
