One of the key updates in Zack Snyder’s Justice League that helped clarify and expand on a certain character was the more screentime given Ray Fisher as Cyborg. The story about his metamorphosis as the character as well as the relationship with his father got plenty more run. And while Ray Fisher has had a contentious relationship with Warner Bros and original Justice League director Joss Whedon, apparently he still appreciates the time spent with Snyder on the film. Fisher took to Twitter to commemorate part of the filming of the movie.
The Ray Fisher post comes on the one-year anniversary of Zack Snyder’s Justice League finally released on HBO Max after a fan rally to actually see the director’s cut of the film. It marked a major update from the Joss Whedon version who had taken over for Snyder in the wake of the latter’s family tragedy involving the death of his daughter. Fans were disappointed with the Whedon version and pleaded with Snyder and Warner Bros. to release the Snyder Cut Ray Fisher posted a picture from the movie set that has a huge group of production folks in the football stadium stands which featured Fisher’s Victor Stone before he becomes Cyborg. Check it out:
Who is actually in this Ray Fisher picture? I mean, it’s really hard to tell. It’s a couple of hundred people at least from Justice League production and Fisher labels this the Class of 2016. It definitely has a college vibe to it considering the manufactured setting at Gotham City University. And though Ray Fisher has had a rocky relationship with certain people and entities involved with the film, it is clear that he at least appreciates both the opportunity and those who actually worked on the film. It’s a cool way to honor all of those people who usually are only recognized by the minuscule text during the rolling credits at the end of the film.
Of course, Ray Fisher has had much to say following his time working with both Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon on this film. Recently, he took to Twitter to call out what he thought was racism on the part of the studio. This was in response to the studio tweeting out some messages during Black History Month. And regarding Joss Whedon, Ray Fisher is on record as calling the director “abusive” and “unprofessional” when he took over for Snyder. This has lingered over time and Fisher hasn’t backed off his original comments. When he raised concerns to the studio about the treatment, the actor thought that the latter turned a blind eye.
Next up for Ray Fisher is a role in Rebel Moon which will see him teaming back up with Zack Snyder. The science-fiction movie will land on Netflix and involves a group of folks living on a distant planet in the galaxy who need to fight for their lives against an invading army. The film will also star Rupert Friend, Sofia Boutella, Charlie Hunnam, and Djimon Hounsou among many others. Seemingly inspired by Star Wars, the movie will hit the streamer sometime in 2024.
