Fisher’s feedback come on the heels of his earlier accusation directed at Johns, when he stated the producer “made a thinly veiled menace to my profession” as a result of the actor had taken his grievances up with a “correct chain of command.” That, in flip, adopted Fisher tweeting in July that “Joss Wheadon’s on-set therapy of the forged and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and fully unacceptable. He was enabled, in some ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.”
The precise particulars of Fisher’s accusations, or the form of WarnerMedia’s obvious third-party inquiry, aren’t recognized. As of press time, Warner Bros. has not responded to a request for touch upon Fisher’s newest tweets. Nevertheless, they quantity to the newest chapter in an ongoing saga of unhappiness and disappointment clouding Justice League’s legacy.
As soon as anticipated to be Warner Brothers’ crowning achievement of constructing towards a shared cinematic universe that might rival Marvel Studios, the film arrived in November 2017 with a whimper and solely $93.eight million in its opening weekend haul. Whereas by itself that could be a giant quantity, it seems slighter when in comparison with the $166 million opening weekend of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which was its direct predecessor. Or when in comparison with how Marvel’s first Avengers film earned $200 million-plus its opening weekend.
In fact, Justice League was a compromised movie derived from two completely different inventive visions. Initially spearheaded by Zack Snyder, the movie was intensely reworked throughout preproduction and filming after Batman v Superman was met with damaging critiques and a blended viewers response. Snyder then stepped away in postproduction, ostensibly attributable to a household tragedy, whereas Joss Whedon got here aboard to complete the movie and oversee reshoots so intensive that he was in a position to earn a screenwriting credit score on the movie. Nonetheless, the movie got here and went with a muted reception by followers and anemic film critiques.
