RAY FISHER Slams JOSS WHEDON's "Abusive" Behavior During Filming Of 'Justice League'
Justice League star Ray Fisher recently took to Twitter to retract his praise for director Joss Whedon, slamming his "abusive" treatment of the cast and crew.
"Joss Whedon's on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable," Fisher tweeted about the Avengers director who took over JL after Zack Snyder dropped out because of a family crisis.

He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.
Following Fisher's tweet, Hollywood insider Grace Randolph alluded to one incident involving Whedon and Gal Gadot who played Wonder Woman. "Gal Gadot didn’t want to film this scene, so Whedon did it (with) a stunt double," she tweeted.
I doubt we’ll ever get specifics from Ray Fisher re Joss Whedon, but here’s one I was the first to report:— Grace Randolph (@GraceRandolph) July 1, 2020

Twitter user Jason Laboy replied to her post, claiming "Don’t forget to add that he locked her in a room and threatened her career if she didn’t do the scene. That is very important and should not be omitted."

Whedon and Gadot have yet to air their sides of the story while Fisher has not cited specific incidents. Meanwhile, Zack Snyder's version of Justice League will hit HBO Max in 2021.
