WarnerMedia has immediately issued a reply to the accusation as well
Actor Ray Fisher has launched another attack against Warner Bros. via Twitter, and this time it was accusing them of trying to ingratiate themselves by hiring black writer Ta-Nehisi Coates to write the rebooted version of Superman, produced by J.J. Abrams.
What Fisher implied was that his complaints were ignored, and the new alliance with Coated is a way to cover up all the outrage Fisher caused.
Do ya’ll remember that time Walter Hamada and @wbpictures tried to destroy a Black man’s credibility, and publicly delegitimize a very serious investigation, with lies in the press?
But hey, Black Superman…

Fisher’s tweet and response
Fisher’s tweet goes as follows: “Do ya’ll remember that time Walter Hamada and @wbpictures tried to destroy a Black man’s credibility, and publicly delegitimize a very serious investigation, with lies in the press?” Fisher said, before adding, “But hey, Black Superman…”
Fisher’s battle against Warner Bros. had been going on since last summer, when he first alleged that Joss Whedon had mistreated him when he came to direct Justice League when Snyder had to step down. Afterwards, he had beef with producer Geoff Jones and DC Films president Walter Hamada.
WarnerMedia conducted an investigation after Fisher’s claims, but they concluded that the issue was not a big matter and tried to end the discussion there.
As for Fisher’s tweets today, WarnerMedia issued a statement saying that once again there are false statements being made about their executives and company following the recent Justice League investigation. It continued, saying that they had conducted an extensive and thorough third-party investigation and their executives, including Hamada had cooperated fully, but no further evidence was found and Warner Bros. also did not lie in the press.
A similar statement was said by Katherine B. Forrest, the investigator and former federal judge who had headed the Fisher investigation. She also said that Hamada was interviewed extensively and that he did nothing that interfered with the investigation.
