WarnerMedia Concludes Justice League Investigation, Says ‘Remedial Action’ Taken

Justice League Snyder Cut

WarnerMedia has finished its investigation into Ray Fisher’s allegations of abusive behavior on the set of Justice League, with “remedial action” taken. Deadline reports that WarnerMedia issued a statement confirming that it had concluded their investigation into Fisher’s claims that Joss Whedon exhibited “gross, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable” behavior in his “on-set treatment of the cast and crew.”

WarnerMedia’s statement reads simply, “WarnerMedia’s investigation into the Justice League movie has concluded and remedial action has been taken.”

The statement comes after an investigation stemming from Fisher’s claims that Whedon was abusive and unprofessional on set, and that Geoff Johns and Jon Berg enabled Whedon’s behavior. WarnerMedia did not state what specific remedial actions were taken, though Deadline reports that sources speculate Whedon’s exit from HBO’s The Nevers was part of said actions.

Fisher was more forthcoming, posting to Twitter to say:

“The following was relayed to me on behalf of @WarnerMedia at 5pm EST today:

– The investigation of Justice League is now complete.

– It has lead to remedial action.
(Some we’ve seen, and some that is still to come.)

– And this statement (which truly belongs to ALL who participated in the investigation):

“WarnerMedia appreciates you having the courage to come forward and assist the company with creating an inclusive and equitable work environment for it’s employees and partners.”

There are still conversations that need to be had and resolutions that need to be found.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement on this journey.

We are on our way.

More soon.


Fisher’s “A>E” is shorthand for “Accountability>Entertainment,” which he’s appended to most of his social media posts about the Justice League situation.

Deadline notes that the investigation and its conclusion have not hampered the reshoots for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the four-part cut of the film that presents Snyder’s vision and which will air on HBO Max early in 2021.
