Nearly two full years after Ray Fisher first revealed his issues with former Justice League director Joss Whedon and Warner Bros, the battle between the two parties continues to rage on with no end in sight. Having initially accused Whedon of unspecified abuse during production for Justice League, he took the fight even further with the company behind the movie, even as he promoted 2021's Zack Snyder's Justice League.

Snyder's vision for the movie gave Fisher's Cyborg the story they both wanted for the character in the first place while allowing Snyder to share his full vision for the movie with the world. It even earned Snyder a chance at extra glory during the 2022 Oscars, thanks to the newly created "Movies Cheer Moment," giving fans the chance to vote for the results.

Even against stiff competition from Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: No Way Home, Zack Snyder's Justice League won this award for the Flash's universe-saving moment with his Speed Force. However, along with this historic Oscars moment came another round of pressure from Fisher for Warner Bros. to do the right thing.

Following Zack Snyder's Justice League's success at the 2022 Oscars, Ray Fisher took to Twitter to call out Warner Bros regarding the investigation into the reported abuse on the set of Justice League.

While congratulating the Snyder Cut for winning the fan-voted "Movies Cheer Moment" award, Fisher once again called for Warner Bros. executive Walter Hamada to apologize to everybody that was hurt during the process:

"In honor of the historic recognition of Zack Snyder’s Justice League—allow me to say, from the bottom of my heart…that Walter Hamada owes an apology to the participants of the Justice League investigation. 


Fisher Still Fighting With WB Execs

Since Ray Fisher first came out with these allegations in July 2020, the Cyborg star hasn't backed off his stance for a moment in his fight to get true justice for the issues he has with Warner Bros. This has even picked up with more ferocity as WB has expanded with more projects focused on DC Comics heroes.

Following the debut of Robert Pattinson's The Batman, Fisher commented on an article praising Hamada for his work on the film as the Discovery merger moved forward. He also voiced his opinion a couple of weeks earlier when Warner Bros. celebrated its African American heroes while asking the company to apologize for what happened to the real African Americans who worked on those projects.

At its base level, this is an exciting moment for Snyder and the team behind his cut of Justice League as it earns recognition at the highest stage in the movie industry. However, Fisher is making sure that his issues with Warner Bros. don't fade into obscurity while he still looks to find closure for what went down on set.

At this time, there seems to be no end in sight for the Fisher vs. Warner Bros battle, as the company has said nothing publicly on the matter regarding any resolution. As the DCEU gets set for a major year with upcoming projects like Black Adam and Shazam!: Fury of the Gods, it's unlikely that Fisher will back off from the fight on his side.
