Joss Whedon is a Huge Asshole According to ‘Justice League’ Star Ray Fisher

Remember when everyone loved Joss Whedon? Buffy The Vampire Slayer is a beloved television show among basically anyone who was a teenager in the 90s and Firefly is basically the poster child for brilliant TV shows that were cancelled too soon. He also wrote and directed the only good Avengers movie. Then he wrote the worst Avengers movie and it was all downhill from there.

We all found out a while ago that Joss was cheating on his wife with anyone who would say yes while pretending to be a big male feminist ally to cover for the fact that he just wanted to f**k lots of women. His Wonder Woman script leaked and it was worse than Age of Ultron.

And look, if he had done a good job on Justice League then we wouldn’t have had years of listening to DC fanboys insisting Warner release a directors cut by Zack Snyder.

Ray Fisher, who played Victor Stone, A.K.A. Cyborg, in Justice League, is not a fan of Joss Whedon. The whole cast had been vocal about supporting Zack Snyder’s director’s cut, which is coming to HBO Max next year, but Ray Fisher went above and beyond that in a tweet a few days ago.

Fisher posted a clip from Comic-Con 2017 where he said what a great guy Whedon was and how he was the right person to take over Justice League and said “I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement.”

At the time, people mostly thought he was just talking about how the movie came out and hyping the Snyder cut.

He was not. He followed that up on Wednesday with a tweet clarifying even was talking about Joss Whedon as a person.

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.

If you’re not familiar, Geoff Johns is a very popular comic book writer who is most famous for taking Green Lantern from being a book that was barely avoiding cancellation for three decades to DC’s top selling book, even beating Batman for a while. He was brought onboard at Warner to guide the burgeoning DC movie universe before that project was mostly scrapped because DC’s most successful movies like Shazam and Joker were entirely unrelated to it. Jon Berg is a producer on a number of DC films as well as the Will Ferrell/Zoey Deschanel Christmas classic Elf.

Variety reports that Berg denied Fisher’s accusations, saying it’s “categorically untrue that we enabled any unprofessional behavior.” He didn’t really stand up for Joss here, mind you, just says he and Johns didn’t “enable” and of his alleged behavior. What Berg did say was that “I remember [Fisher] being upset that we wanted him to say ‘Booyaa,’ which is a well known saying of Cyborg in the animated series,” referring to Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go, as Cyborg is much more associated with the Teen Titans in the comics than the Justice League.

I don’t know what happened on set here and Fisher didn’t elaborate, but it doesn’t take much to convince me Joss Whedon is an asshole.

Woke Hollywood can Eat A Dick. And Fisher was the most one dimensional Cyborg ever, not in a good way. He sucked in those films. And in True Detective too.
