Sharing a clip from the film's San Diego Comic-Con presence in 2017 - in which Fisher described Whedon as "a great guy" and that "Zack [Snyder] picked a good person to come clean up and finish up for him" - Fisher said he was "forcefully" retracting everything he'd said about the director.

In it, he not only criticised Whedon's behaviour during the making of the superhero epic.

Ray Fisher played Cyborg in the DC movie. A plethora of social media users supported the actor for telling the truth about Whedon's behavior and trended the words "I Stand With Fisher".

Fisher followed it with a more detailed tweet.

On Twitter, Fisher wrote, "Joss Wheadon's on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable". Berg and Johns also served as producers on "Justice League", and the film's poor performance was a factor in both executives exiting their positions leading the DC Films unit at the studio.

Fisher's reps were not available for further comment.

At this moment, there has been no response to a request for comment from Warner Bros. representatives, and Joss Whedon has, at this time, no comment.

According to Variety, Berg reacted to the following accusation by saying that it is "categorically untrue that we enabled any unprofessional behavior".

Whedon, who'd already been tapped by Warner Bros.to help with script rewrites and oversee reshoots on the film, famously stepped in for the original "Justice League" director, Zack Snyder, after the death of his daughter in 2017.

What will happen to Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) in "Justice League"? The movie did not fare well at the box office. That led to a years-long grassroots fan campaign to "release the Snyder cut" of "Justice League", which was ultimately successful: Snyder announced in May that his cut of the film will debut on HBO Max in 2021.
