Fisher has been at odds with Warner Bros. since last summer, alleging he was abused by Joss Whedon on the set of Justice League. The ongoing battle has included gunfire at Walter Hamada, the president of DC Films.
According to WarnerMedia, Hamada heard from Fisher, Warner Bros. investigated and then had Warner Media take over the investigation. This review of Fisher’s complaints did not reveal any issues worthy of prosecution.
However, Fisher’s complaints about on-set mistreatment were later reinforced by recent comments from staff members involved in other Whedon productions. They complained of disparaging style and divisive favorism among actors and writers in Whedon, who has yet to respond to the allegations.
WarnerMedia responded to today’s Fisher tweets in a statement: “Once again, false statements are being made about our leaders and our company about the recent Justice League investigation. As we have already indicated, a thorough and thorough third party investigation was carried out. Our leaders, including Walter Hamada, cooperated fully, no evidence was found of any interference, and Warner Bros. did not lie in the press. It’s time to stop saying the opposite and move forward productively. “
The WarnerMedia statement was supported by Katherine B. Forrest, the investigator and former federal judge who led the Fisher inquiry.
“I am disappointed by the continued public statements which suggest that Walter Hamada has in any way interfered with the Justice League investigation. He does not have. I have interviewed him at length on more than one occasion and have interviewed him specifically about his very limited interaction with Mr. Fisher. I found Mr. Hamada credible and open. I concluded that he had done nothing that hindered or interfered with the investigation. On the contrary, the information he provided was useful and advanced the investigation. “
The director’s cut extended from Justice League by Zack Snyder premieres on HBO Max on March 18.
