Fisher's Claims Reportedly Started After Being Offered Small Cameo in The Flash

A new report claims Cyborg actor Ray Fisher didn’t begin his campaign against Warner Bros. over working on the Justice League reshoots until after he was offered only a small cameo in The Flash, the upcoming movie starring Fisher’s Justice League co-stars Ezra Miller and Ben Affleck as well as Michael Keaton. The Wrap, citing two anonymous insiders with purported knowledge of the situation, reports that Warner Bros. has not heard back from Fisher’s team since he was offered a small role in The Flash in June.

(Berg denies this.) While Fisher was initially encouraging in his social media about the news in August that Warner Bros. was launching an investigation into the actor’s claims, by September he claimed DC Films president Walter Hamada was covering for Geoff Johns and impeding the investigation. Warner Bros. issued a denial, claiming Fisher has refused to cooperate with the investigation.
