Ray Fisher, who has been outspoken in his outrage against Warner Bros. Before, has said that if director Zack Snyder called him, he would return as Cyborg in Justice League 2. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Fisher was a fairly unknown young actor from the New York City area. He was cast by Snyder in 2016 for a cameo role as Cyborg. For the Justice League of 2017, he will return to the role in a far greater capacity. But that’s where the falling out starts.
Joss Whedon was brought in to finish the film after Snyder left Justice League for personal reasons. Fisher would later claim that Whedon’s “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” conduct on set. He alleged Fisher’s conduct was not only condoned, but allowed by certain executives of Warner Bros.. Fisher was dropped from his role in the upcoming Flash standalone film as the hashtag #IStandWithRayFisher was trending. And appeared to be working with Warner Bros. and the DCEU. Aside from his role in the upcoming Snyder Cut of Justice League.
A fan asked Fisher on social media if he would star in Justice League 2. Now that he was no longer involved in the Flash film. Fisher says:
I’d definitely pick up the phone. There’s no way I wouldn’t pick up the phone, that’s crazy. Even if he just called me to say what’s up, that phone is getting picked up. He could be like, “Yo, I’m gonna do a Dawn of the Dead 2 and we want you to play a zombie” . I’d be like, just put me way in the back, I’m fine with that.
While the relationship between Ray Fisher and Warner Bros., Joss Whedon, and other studio executives seems to be. At best, frayed and, at worst, irreparable, it would certainly seem that he and Snyder are still very close. For his part, Snyder mostly, at least publicly, stayed out of Fisher’s scuffle with Warner Bros. Both, however, have in the past been open about their admiration for each other.

Snyder may want to do Fisher’s Justice League 2 one day. And also one day the actor may feel the same way. But at this stage it seems highly unlikely that any of those things will happen. Warner Bros. was supportive of the actor appearing in The Flash, despite the allegations and investigation. Of which he was said to have had a potentially significant share. However, on December 30 of last year, Ray Fisher announced that he “will not participate in any production associated with” President Walter Hamada of DC Films. Who Fisher accuses of trying to cover up his abusers. Soon after, his exit from The Flash was confirmed.
It was an extremely dramatic saga filled with turns and twists, and neither side was prepared to give in. Given how it appears to be dug in both Ray Fisher and Warner Bros. Justice League 2 is unlikely to happen, even if Snyder and Fisher were eager to work together on a new DC project. In addition, Hamada has signed a new contract to remain the president of DC Films until 2023. For now, in the Justice League Snyder Cut, fans will have to be satisfied with the return of Ray Fisher as Cyborg.
