Ray Fisher, who played the DC Comics character Cyborg in the Warner Bros. Pictures superhero film “Justice League” says WB has removed him from the upcoming “The Flash” standalone film.
In a tweet posted by Fisher, he shared an essay in which he reveals the news.
This is just the latest bit of news from the ongoing issues stemming from Joss Whedon‘s taking over Zack Snyder‘s “Justice League.” There was also the Walter Hamada issue, which is what probably prompted this decision.
We’re waiting for a rep from Warner Bros. Pictures and / or DC Films to respond to this.
Warner Bros. Pictures has released a statement about this, confirming the above information.
“Last summer, Mr. Fisher was offered the opportunity to reprise his role as Cyborg in The Flash. Given his statement that he will not participate in any film associated with Mr. Hamada, our production is now moving on. Warner Bros. remains in business with Geoff Johns who continues to produce Stargirl, Batwoman, Doom Patrol, Superman & Lois, and Titans for the studio, among other projects.”
