Ray Fisher, aka Cyborg in Warner Bros.' upcoming Justice League, has something to say about fan reaction to Joss Whedon's takeover from Zack Snyder as the film's director.
Speculation quickly surfaced online when it was revealed Snyder stepped down from the project, much of which claims Whedon has changed a significant part of the movie. In an interview with Geek Magazine, Fisher took a shot at the negativity that may have been cast over the film as a result of the behind-the-scenes changes.
"They’re two very different people, but at the end of the day, they’re two very different people who basically want the same thing, and that’s to tell the best possible story for these characters and get them launched off into a really great direction," Fisher said. "So what I think Joss has come in and done is that he’s found really good ways to bond the team, he’s found good ways to bond them organically, so it sets them up to go really anywhere in the future."
"While it’s a different directing style, the fact that Zack had handed the reigns to him is, like, ‘You just have to trust the process,’" Fisher added. "While there wasn’t a lot of time to build that rapport that you would normally have with a director, at the end of the day, it’s about making sure that the fans have the best possible experience that we can possibly give them." the actor said. "So for all the rumor mill stuff, listen. I think there’s a lot of needless negativity that I’m personally dedicating myself not to become a part of."
