Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Maaaaan this is one of those times we think there’s another story behind the statement, but since we cannot begin to fathom what that might be, we’re here to tell you the facts.

Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in Warner Bros. Pictures big ol superhero teamup film “Justice League,” took to his Twitter to “strongly retract” his previous praise of director Joss Whedon.

If you’ll recall, Whedon was hand picked by “Justice League” director Zack Snyder to complete the film when Snyder left the project in May of 2017. His reasons for leaving where completely understandable, Zack and Deborah Snyder‘s daughter committed suicide, and we cannot imagine how difficult of a time that was for the family to navigate. (Snyder is a huge advocate for mental health and suicide prevention, raising money almost monthly for various organizations.)

Back at San Diego Comic Con in 2017, the cast of “Justice League” invaded Hall H, and gave fans the first look at the heroes coming to life on the big screen. Fisher had said some very nice things about Whedon taking over the film.

We don’t blame you at all, Ray. Whedon, as you’ll recall, is problematic for many reasons, not limited to this revelation from his ex wife, multiple reports from female colleagues of problematic behavior, and allegations of harassment (that were never legally proven, we will admit).

Fisher has now clarified what he meant with this tweet, which makes us want to ask “oh, you mean that thing women have been saying about Whedon for 20+ years? Yeah.”

Justice League,” the Snyder Cut, is coming to HBO Max sometime in 2021.
