Justice League: Joss Whedon denies changing the skin color of an actor

Ray Fisher and Joss Whedon are definitely not going to reconcile anytime soon

In an interview with Forbes  published Thursday, actor  Ray Fisher who plays Cyborg in Justice League continues to attack his director. 

Already this summer he had said that ” The way Joss Whedon treated the cast and crew of  Justice League  was rude, unprofessional and completely unacceptable. In many ways, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg [two DC pundits and Warner, Editor’s note] let him do it. “

In this new interview, he goes further since he implies an underlying racism during the filming: “What set my soul on fire and forced me to talk about Joss Whedon this summer is that I learned that Joss ordered an actor’s complexion to be changed in post-production because he didn’t like the color and tone of his skin. “

The reaction of the director and his studio (the Warner) was not long in coming and a statement (anonymous) reached  screen rant to deny his accusations outright :

“The person who made this statement admitted that it was just something she had heard from someone else and accepted to be the truth, when in fact a simple search would have proved to be wrong As is the case with almost all movies, there were many people involved in the mixing of the final product, including the editor, special effects manager, songwriter, and so on.

This process was made even more complicated on this project by the fact that Zack shot on film and Joss shot digitally. It required the team, led by the same seasoned colorist who worked on Zach’s previous films, to harmonize that mix. “

It remains to be seen if Jason Momoa will continue to support him, because obviously the Fisher / Whedon-Warner war is not ready to end and the actor will certainly need support …
