An article on Ray Fisher was published in The Hollywood Reporter yesterday and it really rustled up some feathers over at Warner Bros. Pictures.
The article was written by Kim Masters – a brilliant journalist who’s been working in the industry for a while now.
Most of the article was about the goings-on over at Warner Bros. during Justice League reshoots back in 2017.
It doesn’t make good reading for Joss Whedon, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.
Also, the article also implicates Warner Bros. Pictures’ chairman, Toby Emmerich, which isn’t good for them.
Anyway, we did a long live stream on the article, which you can check out right here.
Kim also tweeted that Warner Bros. Pictures did not want her to publish the article
Warner Bros. Pictures tried to prevent Ray Fisher’s Hollywood Reporter article from being published

Here’s what Kim wrote on Twitter after the article was published:
.@ray8fisher speaks. Warners did not want me to write this story, to put it very mildly.
Honestly, if Warner Bros. Pictures couldn’t look any worse than they already do, they go and pull this rubbish!
Of course, they didn’t want the article published, because it makes them look terrible.
However, they shouldn’t have told the journalist that, and they shouldn’t have tried to get in the way of Ray’s freedom of speech!
