Ray Fisher has updated the public on his abuse claims against Justice League director Joss Whedon, saying he has two years' worth of evidence against Whedon. Evidence, he intimated, that Fisher stakes his career on.
"I find myself in a place where I don't have to justify the way in which I'm handling it," he said during a live panel for Justice League fan convention JusticeCon, according to Variety. "Whatever happens to me with respect to my career or whatever that is, I could not care less."
Fisher told the panel and those in attendance that his "pretty strong comments on Joss Whedon" are completely true.
"It's taken me two and a half years to get all the information I need to be able to build something that's strong enough so people can't dismiss it," he said, adding that he's asked people over that time frame if they would speak on the basis of anonymity, to which people have agreed.
"And so we're in the process of making sure that people can tell their stories in a confidential way that they don't get any sort of retribution done against them," he said. "We're gonna get to the heart of everything." He also said that if anything he has said about Whedon is untrue, "I invite him wholeheartedly to sue me for libel, to sue me for slander."
Early July, Fisher tweeted how Geoff Johns and Jon Berg enabled Whedon's "gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable" behavior on set during Justice League filming.
Johns has since called Fisher's claims of enabling bad behavior "categorically untrue," which Fisher responded to during the panel.
"His denial of...the enabling of that situation was asinine...and it was completely disrespectful fo the situation," he said. "That man is scared. He should also be, because we're going to get to the heart of it. And if you keep in mind, he did not deny that there was any unprofessional behavior...You can look at that statement and tell it's a knee jerk statement of an individual who is scared."
