Ray Fisher Says He Won’t Star In Any More DC Films Under President Walter Hamada
Ray Fisher has revealed that he has decided that he won’t star in any movies within the DC Extended Universe with the current president of DC Walter Hamada in charge of the company. The actor made the shocking announcement on Twitter. Best known for playing the role of Victor Stone/Cyborg in 2017’s Justice League, Fisher has vocal about his displeasure with the current state of the DC Extended Universe for quite some time. During the production of Justice League, most of the scenes involving Fisher’s character were cut when Joss Whedon took over as director after Zack Snyder stepped down due to a family tragedy. Not long after it was announced that fans would be receiving Snyder’s original cut of the film, Fisher publicly revealed the abuse he received behind the scenes.
After a long investigation, the actor revealed his resentment toward Hamada, who took over as President of DC after the film’s failure. In his tweet, Fisher states, “Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler. He lies, and WB PR’s failed Sept. 4th hit-piece, sought to undermine the very real issues of the ‘Justice League’ investigation. I will not participate in any production associated with him.” While there were rumors of Fisher appearing in the upcoming Flash movie starring Ezra Miller as the title character, it would seem that Cyborg will not make any future appearances in the DCEU unless Hamada leaves the company. Fisher has even tried to support the social media campaign, “Restore the Snyderverse,” which would bring back the DCEU’s dark and gritty atmosphere and connected story, something was more or less abandoned after Justice League’s failure in 2017.
As of now, it is unclear if Fisher will ever return to the DCEU as Cyborg. However, given Hamada’s success with DC’s current line of films and there being no sign of him ever leaving the company, Fisher is unlikely to come back anytime soon.
