Justice League star Ray Fisher responds to the resignation of former DC Films head Walter Hamada to celebrate the director’s departure from the studio.
After two years of criticizing the studio manager, Zack Snyder’s Justice League star Ray Fisher is candid about the resignation of former head of DC Films, Walter Hamada. After working on stage for years, Fisher found his groundbreaking film role as Cyborg in the DC Extended Universe, debuting as the character with a cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before appearing largely in both the theatrical and alternate versions of Justice League. Although reception was divided between his first performance and the theatrical release of the latter, Fisher received critical acclaim for his performance in Zack Snyder’s Justice Leaguean expanded version of the film that was edited together after years of fan campaigns.
Despite this positive reception, Fisher’s time in the DCEU was seemingly short-lived as he began to accuse Joss Whedon, who played much of the theatrical release of Justice Leagueof toxic behavior on set, as well as Hamada for protecting the former avengers director. Several other of his stars would later come forward in his defense, including Gal Gadot, who recalled Whedon threatening her career, while Fisher detailed accusations about Whedon’s attempts to minimize Cyborg’s story in the film. Whedon would also see his former Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast and crew speak out against him, releasing a self-defense letter that ultimately fell on deaf ears, leaving many in Fisher’s support to turn their attention to Hamada, whom he accused of defending Whedon and other high-ranking officials. studio executives involved.

Ray Fisher, who has been outspoken in his criticism of the studio exec, then took to his Twitter to celebrate Hamada’s departure and once again called on him for his efforts to “protect his toxic and discriminatory colleagues,” and he shares his hopes of never dating him again.
