The cursed superhero ensemble Justice League had a particularly troubled front and behind-the-scenes production, and one person to suffer was “rookie” Ray Fisher.
The 32-year-old actor who played Cyborg had his first real major role in a feature film with JL, after a brief cameo in Batman v Superman and a recurring role on Season 3 of True Detective.
After Zack Snyder left, Fisher was initially a big supporter of replacement Joss Whedon, but has now withdrawn that support with a tweet about an old posted video.
In the video (at San Diego Comic-Con in 2017), Fisher answers a fan question with: “Joss is a great guy. Zack has picked the perfect person to clean up and finish everything for him.” However, he added yesterday: “I want to take a moment to vigorously withdraw every part of this statement.”
I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement: pic.twitter.com/1ECwwu6TG1

Reportedly, Whedon wrote 80 new script pages and only 10% of Snyder’s material can be seen in the final product. Fisher has praised Snyder more often in the past and was one of the most outspoken supporters of the Snyder-Cut coming out next year on HBO Max.
