Former DC Films president Walter Hamada recently departed Warner Bros. His exit was hinted at in August 2022 by The Hollywood Reporter stating that he considered leaving his position following Batgirl's cancelation. Per the trade, however, he agreed to stay on until at least October 21st—Black Adam's release date. Then, on October 19, Deadline revealed that Hamada had exited the company.

The former studio head was criticized multiple times on social media by Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in 2017's Justice League and Zack Snyder's Justice League. The actor accused him of interfering with an investigation into alleged misconduct during the filming of the 2017 superhero team-up film. 

Now, Fisher has addressed Hamada's departure from the company, stating on Twitter

"Walter Hamada tried to protect his toxic and discriminatory colleagues. He failed. He tried to bury me (and the 'Justice League' investigation) with lies in the trades. He failed. He is a product of old Hollywood cronyism. May we never experience his like again. Onward! A>E."

Prior to that statement, on October 16, the actor also posted the following about Hamada and DC writer and former DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns on social media:

"Not sure why I'm trending, but this would be a good time to mention: Walter Hamada still owes an apology to the participants of the 'Justice League' investigation. Had he not attempted to cover for Geoff Johns' toxic and discriminatory behavior, we wouldn't be here now."

Fisher's accusations against Hamada reached a heated point in 2021, when, after the actor posted a Twitter message regarding his exit from The Flash, Warner Bros. refuted his claims in its own statement


Following his exit from DC, Hamada received support from Shazam! screenwriter Henry Gayden on Twitter. Gayden, who also co-wrote the upcoming Shazam! Fury of the Gods, recalled Hamada giving him advice on what became a pivotal plot point in Shazam!

As the writer explained, the executive's input resulted in the scene that saw Billy encounter his biological mother and finding out she didn't want him: 

"Screenwriters tend to grouse about studio execs and their notes (sometimes it's deserved), but I always tell this story as an example of how transformative a good note can be, and since [Walter Hamada] left DC today, here it is... In early drafts of 'Shazam!', Billy's parents were dead."

According to Gayden, he had written a scene with Billy Batson finding his parents' gravestones, but Hamada called him to make a suggestion: 

"Then, one weekend, out of nowhere, Walt called me up and said, 'What if Billy's mom is still alive but doesn't want him?' My immediate response was: 'No. No way. That's [way] too heavy for a movie this lighthearted.' [...] So, we ended the conversation with him saying, 'Just try writing it. He finds his mom, and she doesn't want him. If it doesn't work, we have the cemetery scene. Try it.' I hung up. All I had was the basic idea. [...] I sat down and tried to write the scene. An hour later, it was my favorite scene in the movie."

Throughout his tenure at Warner Bros., Hamada served as executive producer on DC projects like Shazam!, Joker, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide SquadThe Batman and Black Adam

The latest installment in the DCEU, Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson, is currently in theaters.

@HWestRE420 - Umm.. he's RIGHT THOUGH! All of you people on this site promotes negatively and ignorance. He was standing up for INJUSTICE on the set and he BEEN RIGHT!!! EVEN WONDER WOMAM( Gal Gadot) brought up some of the EXACT SAME POINTS and Behaviors as Ray Fisher...

But ya didn't tell HER SHUT UP AND LET IT GO! DID YOU??

NO.. because you are all SHEEP that follows along the previous guy and don't make any adjustments to the facts that just came out.

This whole message board of comments (with only a few exceptions) are a JOKE! You all have been rooting for Failures in other movies, trashing before it even cones put.

A bunch of LAMES just riding each other.

@NubaX - Yet he is the ONLY actor that is still posting A>E as if it means something.

Everyone has literally moved on, even GADOT. Right now I wonder if the sheep are the ones following Ray Fisher hoping for justice or the Snyder fans.

Even Snyder himself has moved on. Its over.
NubaX - 10/28/2022, 11:54 AM
@HWestRE420 - No Snyder has NOT "moved on". Infact he's in talks to return AGAIN!

So what are You talking about exactly???

Fisher is such a messy bitch.

thewanderer - 10/22/2022, 8:18 AM
@Ginley - I’m pretty sure Fisher buried himself.
CitizenFett - 10/22/2022, 7:28 PM
@Ginley -

It is just a cool word that is not offensive at all.

CitizenFett - 10/22/2022, 7:30 PM
@Ginley - At least that Doom Patrol actor Joivan Wade loves the role. Very grateful.
TheLobster - 10/22/2022, 7:52 PM
@CitizenFett - the lamest catch phrase lmao

There's no f*cking hope for guys like him.

You can tell he that tweet saved as a draft ready to go lol!!

Shut up Ray. You ruined your own career.
KWilly - 10/22/2022, 8:45 AM
Fisher may not have been wrong about Whedon and Hamada, but the way he went about it was freakin maniacal. You don't see Affleck, Mamoa, or Gadot constantly complaining about them. In fact, Gadot professionally said her experience with Whedon was bad ONE time and that was it. That was all that needed to be said.
DrReedRichards - 10/22/2022, 8:51 AM
@KWilly -

Like her or not, Gadot had and still has a career to look after. Ray does not. After the cancelation of the movies hat established him, this beef was the only thing giving him relevance; and apparently, it still is.
dracula - 10/22/2022, 10:32 AM
@KWilly - worst thing about fisher is he never actually said anything, just continues to be the vaguest man alive to drag things out (or hide his lack of a proper story)

Carpenter, Gadot and Trchtenberg were the ones with something to say and were taken seriously. Gave their full stories instead of padding this thing out
NubaX - 10/23/2022, 4:10 PM
@dracula - He couldn't because of the investigation that was going on low key. He wanted to, obviously.

Like the op said... he may have been RIGHT... BUT HE ACTUALLY WAS RIGHT!

You're annoyed by a guy who's trying to tell the truth about whats goingnon.

It's not like these movies have been a big success overall. This is a big reason why.

Stop being SHEEP!
dracula - 10/23/2022, 4:33 PM
@NubaX - everyone else with an actual story did.

he was right about whedon being an asshole, anything beyond that remains to be seen.

He never actually said anything beyond the vaguest accusations possible. Other people told the truth not him, and none of those others stories had anything to do with Geoff Johns, Hamada or racism. Carpenter, Gaot and Bensen told the truth.

Nobody cares about this anymore and several movies since then have been more successful than snyder's garbage

stop taking vague accusations as fact. Only proven accusation is whedon being an asshole and forcing him to do what he was being paid to do (read a script).
Slotherin - 10/24/2022, 6:08 PM
@NubaX - I don't think assuming people are sheep because you don't see eye to eye and saying "stop being sheep" is the most effective way to convince anyone of anything, but you're of course welcome to it.

SHAZAM! is the best DCEU film.

@JohnPain - you ain’t lyin’
Ha1frican - 10/22/2022, 10:27 AM
@JohnPain - It’s pretty good but I still maintain Levy doesn’t work as Shazam himself. He doesn’t feel even remotely close to the way Billy acts. I’d have much rather had John Cena or Alan Ritchson

Can't this fool just stfu and disappear?
