WarnerMedia launched an investigation into the production of “Justice League,” a source with knowledge at the company confirmed to Variety. The decision comes after repeated public statements by one of the film’s stars, Ray Fisher, alleging misconduct by filmmaker Joss Whedon and producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg while making the film. There have been no findings yet, and there is no specific timeline for the investigation. The source stressed that WarnerMedia hasn’t prejudged Whedon, Johns, or Berg, that the investigation is not limited to them, and that to preserve the integrity of the investigation, the company won’t conduct it in the public sphere.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, Fisher, who plays Cyborg, also tweeted that WarnerMedia had hired an independent third party to investigate his allegations. He also suggested for the first time that unnamed “others” on the production “grossly abused their power” and that the then-in-progress merger of Time Warner and AT&T provided cover for the alleged behavior.
