Clerks helmer Kevin Smith recently backed up Ray Fisher’s comments about Joss Whedon’s behavior on the set of Justice League.
Justice League star Ray Fisher recently took a shot at Joss Whedon for his alleged “abusive” behavior on the set of the DC Comics movie, with the actor also calling out producers Jon Berg and Geoff Johns for enabling the director on set. And on the most recent episode of Kevin Smith’s Fatman Beyond podcast, the filmmaker backs up the Fisher’s comments by talking about conversations he had with crew members on The Rise of Skywalker, who also worked on the Zack Snyder and Whedon versions of Justice League.
During the podcast, director Kevin Smith and writer Marc Bernardin were discussing the situation when Smith opened up about a conversation he had with a member of the special effects team from Justice League, who told him that Joss Whedon would actively be negative about Zack Snyder’s version of the film. The director points out that he has no first-hand experience of Whedon’s comments, but it definitely lines up with Ray Fisher’s recent accusations.
“cut down, dismiss and be negative about Zack’s version which he had seen and all of the special effects team [these people] had made together.”

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
