Recently, we reported that Jason Momoa entered the fracas between his “Justice League” co-star Ray Fisher and Warner Bros. At the time, all Momoa did was post a picture with a supportive hashtag. Many wondered if it was more of a symbolic gesture or if the “Aquaman” star was also a witness to the “abuse” that Fisher claims to have experienced during the reshoots on the superhero team-up film. Well, those questions have been answered, with very little room for ambiguity thanks to a new statement from Momoa.
In a recent Instagram post, Momoa not only voiced his support for Fisher in a very public way, but also seconded the claims of his co-star, confirming that some “shit” went down during the reshoots of “Justice League.”
Momoa’s full post said, “THIS SHIT HAS TO STOP AND NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT @ray8fisher AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO EXPERIENCED WHAT HAPPEN UNDER THE WATCH OF @wbpictures NEEDS PROPER INVESTIGATION I just think it’s fucked up that people released a fake Frosty announcement without my permission to try to distract from Ray Fisher speaking up about the shitty way we were treated on Justice League reshoots. Serious stuff went down. It needs to be investigated and people need to be held accountable. #IStandWithRayFisher.”
This comes after Fisher has taken to social media quite a bit to defend himself after the studio claimed that the actor was impeding the independent investigation about his claims. Not only does Fisher claim that WB is just trying to smear him, he recently shared information about how WB is dropping the ball and the studio’s independent investigation has been far from thorough.
Clearly, this isn’t an issue that is going away anytime soon. WB, obviously, would like one of its biggest stars to not go on social media and claim that “serious stuff” happened on set. But then again, Momoa is going to support his “Justice League” co-star, and if Fisher doesn’t back down, things could continue to get ugly. Not the look like the studio wants as it tries to build hype for the “Justice League” Snyder Cut that is being released next year.
