Cyborg Actor Ray Fisher Criticise Justice League Reshoots & Joss Whedon
Cyborg Actor Ray Fisher in DC Extended Universe’s Cyborg has denied what he said earlier regarding the re-shoots of the movie.
It’s no secret that Justice League had to face a large scale troubled production process. Original director Zack Snyder had to exit due to a family tragedy. By that time, he had done the principal photography. Instead of delaying the movie, WB brought Joss Whedon in to guide the film to completion, which included extensive rewrites and reshoots. Earlier Cyborg actor Ray Fisher showed his support to Whedon’s coming in to handle the Justice League. But over two years and a half years after the movie’s release, he’s retracted that support.

Cyborg actor Ray Fisher said back then, “Joss is a great guy, and Zack picked a good person to come in and clean up, finish up for him.” Recently, Fisher tweeted a clip of him saying those very few sentences at SDCC 2017 with the caption, “I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement.”
It’s also noticeable that Jason Momoa’s stone-faced expression and seemingly half-hearted nod reacting to Fisher’s praise. Unfortunately, there’s no additional context that makes the situation clear. It is doubtful that this has something to do with a personal disagreement, or if this has to do with the news that the “Snyder Cut” version of Justice League will air on HBO Max.
Cyborg actor Ray Fisher, since the beginning, a supporter of #ReleaseTheSnyderCut on his social media. Given that Snyder gave Fisher, whose sole credit since 2017’s Justice League was a recurring role in Season 3 on HBO’s True Detective, his start as a screen actor perhaps it’s a matter of loyalty for him. According to Zack Snyder, Fisher was the heart of the Justice League.
However, actor Joe Morton, who was Cyborg’s dad Silas Stone said back in 2017 that Whedon’s terrible reshoots were in part to alter the tone of the Cyborg character, a creative shift that could get to the heart of Fisher’s retraction of his past praise for Whedon.
