Ray Fisher is effectively done with DC.
According to Variety, the Justice League actor said he will not work with DC Films President Walter Hamada on any film. Fisher’s announcement also means that he will not return as Cyborg for any future DC Films projects.
This comes after WarnerMedia’s completed investigation on Fisher’s claims of a toxic work environment on Justice League. After the investigation ended, WarnerMedia stated that “remedial action” has been taken regarding Fisher’s claims against director Joss Whedon and producers Jon Berg and Geoff Johns.
“Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler,” tweeted Fisher Wednesday. “He lies, and WB PR’s failed Sept. 4th hit-piece sought to undermine the very real issues of the ‘Justice League’ investigation. I will not participate in any production associated with him.”

Fisher also linked to a Dec. 27 New York Times article profiling Hamada in a positive light without bringing up the WarnerMedia investigation. It would seem that Fisher is alluding to the article doing even more PR damage for Hamada.
Even if he is done as Cyborg, Fisher is keeping busy. One of his upcoming roles is a series regular in the first season of ABC’s historical anthology series, Women of the Movement. He’ll star opposite Adrienne Warren and Niecy Nash.
