After almost a year of social media postings about it, actor Ray Fisher has now opened up about his experience on the reshoots of 2017’s “Justice League” and the subsequent investigations into what happened.
A lengthy piece over at THR goes into the full story, head over there to read it, but there are some surprising revelations in the interview. One of them is how actress Gal Gadot was allegedly the subject of Joss Whedon’s wrath.
The report indicates Gadot was one of several actors having issues with the new script revisions Whedon turned in. Gadot apparently had issues with how her character had been made more aggressive here than in her solo film which didn’t fit as she wanted to: “make the character flow from one movie to the next.”
The actress eventually took her complaints to the chairman of Warners to help get things rectified, however after that Gadot was reportedly pushed by Whedon to record lines of dialogue she didn’t like and it is alleged he threatened her career and disparaged Patty Jenkins.
In her response to the trade about the allegations, Gal Gadot said: “I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Bros. handled it in a timely manner.”
The report also goes into Fisher not reprising his role as Cyborg in “The Flash,” saying he and director Andy Muschietti had a good talk about a proposed role. Then WB allegedly positioned the role as a ‘cameo’ even though he was to shoot for two weeks.
This meant the financial offer was well below what Fisher thinks he should have received to return. Reports then came out that Fisher was demanding twice as much money and Warners issued a statement indicating Fisher’s stated issues with executive Walter Hamada was the cause of his non-participation.
Fisher thinks the whole situation is a result of his campaign for accountability from Warners executives and filmmakers like Joss Whedon, Jon Berg, and Geoff Johns: “If I can’t get accountability, at least I can make people aware of who they’re dealing with.”
