The 41-year-old actor has spoken up in support of Ray Fisher, who claimed in July that director Joss Whedon “was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” while shooting the 2017 blockbuster and had been “enabled, in many ways” by then-DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and producer Jon Berg.
And the 33-year-old actor’s co-star has spoken up and claimed the cast were treated during a “s***” way while performing on reshoots for the filmmaker, who took over as director from Zack Snyder when he stepped down for private reasons.
Jason shared a photograph of himself and Ray on Instagram and wrote: “THIS S*** has got to STOP and wishes TO BE checked out . @ray8fisher and everybody ELSE WHO EXPERIENCED WHAT HAPPEN UNDER THE WATCH OF @wbpictures NEEDS PROPER INVESTIGATION.(sic) ”
The “Aquaman” star then branded a report that he was in talks to voice Frosty the Snowman during a movie “fake” and suggested it had been only released to draw attention faraway from Ray’s claims, because it was published on an equivalent day his pal – who portrayed Cyborg – came forward.
He wrote: “I just think it’s f***** up that folks released a fake Frosty announcement without my permission to undertake to distract from Ray Fisher speaking up about the s*** way we were treated on Justice League reshoots.
“Serious stuff went down. It must be investigated and other people got to be held accountable. #IStandWithRayFisher. aloha j.(sic) ”
Jason’s comments came shortly after Ray claimed Warner Bros. had did not speak to “key witnesses” in their investigation of his allegations.
Ray Fisher responds to Warner Bros. statement over Justice League investigation
Ray Fisher has pushed back at a press release made by Warner Bros. that he’s being uncooperative amid an investigation into misconduct allegations he made against Justice League director Joss Whedon.
He tweeted: “To-date, the ‘independent’ firm hired by @wbpictures has conveniently avoided contacting key witnesses who gave damning statements to WB HR.
“They’ve also started interviews with (and have since ghosted) witnesses that have implicated former and current top level executives.
“Others (including an implicated person who called me to apologize) have already been interviewed. we’ll not let ANY investigator cherry-pick interviewees that best suit @wbpictures’ false narrative and scapegoating efforts. All with stories are going to be heard! A>E.(sic) ”
Neither Ray nor Jason have given specific details on the allegations.
