Justice League dispute round

“Justice League” dispute round

After Ray Fisher already distanced himself from positive statements about the theatrical version of “Justice League” and the work of Joss Whedon, he now explicitly dealt with the replacement director again. Update: In the meantime, Warner has responded.

When “Justice League” came to the cinemas in 2017, all actors played their roles during the promo: the transition from original director Zack Snyder to substitute Joss Whedon was seamless, assured Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck and Co. also us in an interview.

But in the months after it opened, fans began to scrutinize more than just the theatrical version of Justice League to pinpoint the differences between the scenes shot by Snyder and Whedon. The actors also expressed their displeasure with the theatrical version, sometimes more or less clearly – and their support for the Snyder-Cut aka “Zack Snyder’s Justice League”.

The climax came with a tweet from cyborg actor Ray Fisher, who withdrew his positive statements about the theatrical version of “Justice League” – and apparently also included Joss Whedon. A new tweet from Fisher shows that this was by no means a coincidence, in which the latter attacks Whedon directly:

Joss Wheadon’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— Ray Fisher (@ ray8fisher) July 1, 2020

“Joss Whedon’s behavior on set towards the Justice League cast and crew was disgusting, insulting, unprofessional and completely unacceptable. That was made possible in many ways by [then DC Films bosses] Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Accountability> Entertainment, ”wrote Fisher.

Attack on Whedon, Johns and Berg

To blame Whedon for the changes to “Justice League” compared to the version actually planned by Synder, as many DC fans have been doing for almost three years now, is simply wrong, after all, this was only at Warner’s behest.

But that’s obviously not what Fisher is about, who doesn’t criticize any changes in content or tone, but complains directly about Whedon’s behavior on the set. And the case is different.

And also against Geoff Johns and Jon Berg, who are very unpopular with many Justice League and DCEU fans, Fisher reports in his post. Johns in particular is a red rag for many commentators on the net, who is responsible for the lighter, more colorful tone of the DCEU since “Justice League”. However, at that time Johns was by no means the highest authority at Warner, but only the executive body.

In any case, it can be said that the background story and the whole development of “Justice League” would meanwhile probably provide enough material for a very exciting and informative documentary.

Perhaps the release of “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” will be able to smooth things over a little and reconcile the fans and actors a little. Publication is planned for the first half of 2021.

Update August 20th

Warner has now launched an official investigation into the allegations against Joss Whedon, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Ray Fisher believes this investigation will show how the three men and others exercised their power during the telecommunications company AT’s takeover of Warner

I believe this investigation will show that Geoff Johns, Joss Whedon, Jon Berg (and others) grossly abused their power during the uncertainty of AT
