Ray Fisher will join co-stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot for additional shooting on Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which will premiere on HBO Max next year.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Fisher will appear on the call sheet, despite his ongoing dispute with Warner Bros over allegations of misconduct by Joss Whedon, who was brought in to complete Justice League reshoots in 2017.

Warner Bros’ parent company WarnerMedia is currently undertaking an investigation into Fisher’s claims, which also involve former WB execs Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.

In the meantime, Snyder is set to roll cameras in October on additional material for his cut, which will be released as a four-part miniseries totalling around four hours — twice the running time of the theatrical version.

Fisher has accused Warner Bros of enabling a “toxic and abusive work environment” on the set during Whedon’s reshoots.

The new THR article described Whedon’s set as “a messy and hastily assembled affair”, confirming that the Avengers filmmaker abandoned many of Fisher’s scenes in the movie.

His role is set to be expanded in the Snyder Cut, as per the original director’s vision for the character as a key cog in the story.

Aquaman star Jason Momoa publicly backed Fisher in no uncertain times earlier this month, claiming that a news story linking him to a Frosty the Snowman movie was faked to distract from Fisher’s allegations.

THR also reported that the ongoing investigation is affecting Fisher’s planned cameo in the upcoming Flash movie.

Based on the famed Flashpoint arc from the comics, the time-bending movie will be directed by It helmer Andy Muschietti and feature multiple incarnations of Batman.

Discussions with Fisher have reportedly stalled over money and Cyborg’s involvement in the story has already diminished in the latest version of the script.

Flashpoint is due to arrive in June 2022 and Zack Snyder’s Justice League will arrive in 2021.
