They asked us to go to the San Diego Comic-Con in 2017 and said that Zac chose Jos and Jos is a good person. I still receive Emails of these talking points.”

“These conversations were reported to me by the person in the room. I didn’t realize until I finished talking about Jos Wheaton. What I shared in this interview was neither Warner Bros. (Warner Bros.) HR news is not WarnerMedia news. I reported almost everything to them in July, including Emmerich’s participation.” Fisher said.
“The fact that I have to defend myself in this way is that both parties feel equally free and frustrated. I have always suspected that race is the decisive factor in making things worse, but I will not be able to prove it until this summer.” Fisher said .
He added that the game is just the tip of the iceberg. Among the numerous complaints, he cited threats and unsafe working conditions.
Johns was a special source of Fisher’s anger.
“Geoff Johns posed a serious threat to my career when he was filming again in Los Angeles. Justice League“, Fisher said. “Multiple sources told me that Jos threatened another person’s career related to production.” Toby was told and tried to cover Wheaton instead of dealing with the abuse. This situation must be upgraded to had original to achieve any results. “
Fisher’s complaint was supported by: Neptune Star Jason Momoa (Jason Momoa), he also attacked Warner Bros. in an online statement on Instagram.
In the end, Fisher hopes that this change will stem from his complaints.
“My goal is to make these people no longer the decision makers that affect the content of our world,” Fisher began. “These guys have been in Hollywood for a long time. Their problematic behavior did not start with the AT&T merger, but if it doesn’t end with the merger, I will be condemned.”
