At Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Films lately, it was out with the old and in with the much older as Dwayne Johnson overcame six years of rejection to bring Henry Cavill back from the cold for a cameo in Black Adam. Many fans are speculating whether Ray Fisher's Cyborg would be the next, along with Ben Affleck's eventual return to the fold following his first retirement as Batman.
After all, the actor was originally slated to star in his own solo film, but it was quickly brushed under the rug. He was also meant to have a significant supporting role in The Flash, but he made it quite clear that he wouldn't be coming back as long as Walter Hamada was in charge.
The departing executive's days are undoubtedly numbered, but Fisher isn't eager to fuel comeback rumours. Instead, the 35-year-old, in the wake of the Justice League inquiry into the misconduct claims made against Zack Snyder's replacement Joss Whedon, has persisted in demanding the apology he is due from Hamada.
Fisher has been a vocal presence on social media ever since first breaking his silence on the events that took place behind the scenes of the torturous reshoots, and as usual, the comments and responses are firmly in favour of the former all-star team member. Fisher has continued to push for accountability over entertainment.
Hamada could always slink out of the spotlight without making the apology Fisher has been wanting for a long time, given the significant changes made to the makeup of the boardroom at WBD following the recent merger, but let's hope that isn't how it plays out.
