Momoa posted a photo of Fisher on her Instagram Story on Tuesday, with the caption, “IStandWithRayFisher.” Fischer shared Momoa’s post on Twitter, writing, “Accountability> Entertainment.”
Fisher accused “Justice League” director Joss Whedon of “gross, abusive, unprofitable and completely unacceptable” behavior in July. While he is not known in detail about what happened on the set, Fisher also claimed that former Warner Bros. co-president of production John Berg and former DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns of Whedon Enabled perceived behavior.
Following Fisher’s initial claim, Whedon declined to comment, while Berg said it was “clearly untrue that we enabled any unprofessional behavior.”
WarnerMedia launched an investigation soon after Fisher’s allegations about the workplace environment. Following that news, Fisher wrote in August, “I believe this investigation will show that Geoff Johns, Joss Whedon, John Berg (and others) exerted their power during the uncertainty of AT & T’s merger with Time Warner. Misused. ”
Tensions rose again last week when WarnerMedia issued a statement saying Fisher refused to cooperate after the media company launched an investigation and hired a separate independent third-party investigator.
WarnerMedia said on September 4, “This investigator has tried several times to meet Mr. Fisher, but to discuss his concerns, Mr. Fisher has declined to speak to the investigator.”
Fisher said WarnerMedia’s statement is untrue, and on August 26 shared a screenshot of an email to his team, stating that Fisher had allegedly spoken to an investigator via Zoom.
After disputing those claims, Fisher expanded his allegations. He said that Johns “threatened the veil” against his career and said that another actor would play his character Cyborg from the DC Extended Universe on separate television shows.
Whaden took over the direction of the 2017 film after original filmmaker Zack Snyder left the project due to a family tragedy. After extensive rehab, “Justice League” debuted to mixed reviews and became a commercial flop.
Momoa, who portrays Aquaman in the Superman series, and Fisher are among the franchise stars returning for the director’s cut of the comic book adaptation “Cinder of Justice League.” The four-part series is expected to drop on HBO Max in 2021.
