Ray Fisher Slams Warner Bros. Boss Following The Batman’s Release

With the release of The Batman, a new chapter of the well-known dispute between Ray Fisher and the Warner Bros. executives has loomed on the horizon.

The actor has responded in kind to a statement from current Warner Bros. Pictures president Toby Emmerich, but let’s take a step back.

In the past few hours, the famous producer has commented on the great success that the film starring Robert Pattinson is achieving in cinemas (almost) all over the world. The studio has endorsed the story and script written by Matt Reeves from the very beginning, and it seems that this could mark the start of a new course in choosing the directors to entrust the next DC-branded superhero movies.

In fact, Emmerich has reiterated that The Batman‘s impact will be felt in the studio’s next choices, and that the “secret” to ensure its success would be to put capable and talented directors at the helm of their projects.

“The secret of the movie business is quality. It’s the best business strategy for both theatrical motion pictures and superhero movies,” he said. “The movies don’t have to all have the same tone, or interlock with other DC movies, or have an Easter egg that sets up another film. Quality is the most important factor for a studio, and the biggest thing you can do to influence quality is the filmmaker that you hire.”

These words were obviously not a nice surprise to Ray Fisher, who upped the ante with a Twitter post in which he stated: “If Toby wants to talk about directors, he should talk about his hiring and protecting of Joss Whedon.”

As you may recall, Fisher played Victor Stone aka Cyborg in the 2017 infamous project Justice League. The ongoing dispute with Warner Bros. was made public in 2020 following allegations of toxic behavior and verbal abuse by film director Joss Whedon.

In July 2021, Fisher argued that the director’s toxic behavior had been widely permitted by Toby Emmerich, Walter Hamada and other high-profile WarnerMedia executives, who would not properly protect the actors from the director’s verbal harassment.

“Walter Hamada, Toby Emmerich, Geoff Johns and Warner believe everything will blow over if they just ignore it hard enough,” the actor said. “It won’t. They played, and lost, a very dangerous game. I’ve been encouraged by every industry professional to stay the course. And I shall.”

Fisher also said Hamada actively discouraged a third-party investigation into abuse on the set of Justice League. Whedon himself later contested the allegations leveled by Fisher, although these have been widely supported and confirmed by other cast members and actors from other productions such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
