Ray Fisher Claims That Joss Whedon Changed An Actor’s Skin Tone On Justice League

Ray Fisher did a big interview with Forbes in which he claimed that Joss Whedon wanted to change a black actor’s skin tone in Justice League.

This a pretty big claim to make, however, there could be some reasons why Whedon wanted to do that.

Anyway, the article in Forbes doesn’t make for good reading if you’re Joss Whedon or one of the people Fisher claims engaged in racist activity at WarnerMedia.

However, he does seem to be more concerned with what Whedon was doing and how he and many of the other black actors on set were treated.

Fisher spoke of how almost all the roles played by black actors in the movie were either cut or severely cut down.

That is actually true. Cyborg’s role was heavily cut and then we didn’t see Iris West in the movie at all.

Here’s the quote from the interview that really stood out to me.

What set my soul on fire and forced me to speak out about Joss Whedon this summer was my becoming informed that Joss had ordered that the complexion of an actor of color be changed in post-production because he didn’t like the color of their skin tone. Man, with everything 2020’s been, that was the tipping point for me.
