Ray Fisher has continued his ongoing dispute with Warner Bros, referring to DC Films president Walter Hamada as “the most dangerous kind of enabler”.

The 33-year-old actor, who played Cyborg in the 2017 film Justice League, said on Twitter that he will not work on another movie connected to Hamada.

This would appear to rule Fisher out of a rumoured cameo in the upcoming solo outing for Ezra Miller’s incarnation of The Flash, as well as future appearances for Cyborg.

Fisher accused Hamada of trying to “undermine” the investigation into the behaviour of director Joss Whedon and others during the reshoots for Justice League after original filmmaker Zack Snyder stepped down.

He also referenced a statement issued on 4 September, which alleged Fisher had refused to meet with the third-party investigators looking into Whedon’s behaviour.

Fisher has spoken out against Whedon and the Justice League production since July, when he “forcefully retracted” praise he had previously offered to the director at a Comic-Con appearance.

He later elaborated that Whedon had been “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” in his behaviour on the set.

Hamada was not involved with DC Films during the Justice League reshoots, joining the company at the beginning of 2018.

Neither Warner Bros or Hamada have commented on Fisher’s latest allegations.

Fisher coined the phrase “Accountability>Entertainment” in reference to the ongoing dispute, which he often uses to sign off his tweets.

WarnerMedia ultimately launched an independent investigation into the conduct of Whedon and executives, which it said in December had “concluded and remedial action has been taken”.

Jason Momoa has supported Fisher’s efforts, while Gal Gadot confirmed she had been extensively interviewed as part of the investigation and had her own issues with Whedon.

Snyder has since returned to Justice League in order to complete the long-rumoured ‘Snyder Cut’, which will be unveiled in multiple parts on the HBO Max streaming service.

Fisher joined the rest of the cast for Snyder’s reshoots — estimated to cost in the region of $70m (£51m) — ensuring that the director’s vision will be communicated in the finished epic.

Snyder recently confirmed that the new cut is due to be available on HBO Max in March 2021.

Plans for the release in countries which do not have the streaming platform — including the UK — have not yet been unveiled.
