In a Twitter post today, the Justice League actor let loose about his experience on the set of the Warner Brothers/DC film. Justice League the was supposed to be the DC Comics response to Marvel’s Avengers franchise. Although the movie was a relative hit, it didn’t make the kind of splash Warner Bros. had hoped for — it grossed $658M at the global at the box office. Lukewarm fan reaction and bad reviews didn’t help.
According to Fisher, who played Cyborg, director Joss Whedon made the on-set experience of starring in a big-tent blockbuster hell.
In a Twitter post Fisher slammed Whedon’s treatment of the cast and crew as “abusive”:
“Joss Whedon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable. He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Accountability>Entertainment.”

While Fisher didn’t go into detail about exactly what Whedon did on-set, it’s just another black-eye for a film that continues to be dogged by fans, even two years after it was released.Whedon hasn’t commented on Fisher’s post, and his Justice League co-stars have been mum.
It was announced recently that the Zack Snyder cut of the film, which fans have been clambering for, will premiere on HBO Max in 2021. Snyder was the original director on the film, but left the project after the death of his daughter. After Snyder’s departure, Whedon was tapped to finish the film.
