  'Justice League' writer Joss Whedon is facing a slew of allegations from A-list actors. Here's a timeline of the controversy. The creator of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and director of "The Avengers" has been accused by actors of inappropriate behavior on set.Whedon is best known as the creator of popular TV series like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," its spin-off "Angel," and "Firefly," as well as directing hit blockbuster movies "The Avengers" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Now, Whedon has been accused by numerous actors of unacceptable behavior on set.

"Just wait til you see what he's going to do with Impulse," Wallace told Insider. "It's going to blow your mind."

Fisher is set to make his debut as Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen's (Candice Patton) speedster son from the future on the show's 150th episode, which will air as part of season seven.

"He's funny, he's charming, but he's got an edge," Wallace said of how Fisher's version of the character will be different from previous iterations. "But also, he is not the person you've seen on 'Young Justice' cartoons. He's not the Impulse in the comic books because he's older than that."

The 27-year-old actor has already teased his appearance on the show by tweeting about trying on his superhero suit for the first time and meeting some of his costars. Wallace said that Fisher's depiction is "his own unique interpretation of the Impulse character."

Wallace continued: "I remember I was on set and we'd been shooting all night and I'm watching this kid, this Jordan Fisher kid, on set. And I'm thinking to myself, 'Wow, this guy has some real charisma and he's the nicest person ever, what a nice guy."

Wallace said that he made a list of people who he wanted to work with in the future. On that list was Fisher, who had "that 'it' factor and he's a good person."

"And I like working with good people," Wallace said.

Last year when Wallace pitched the idea for Impulse to join "The Flash," he recalled everyone being enthusiastic. When asked who he had in mind for the role, Wallace said that Fisher was the only person he envisioned as the speedster.

Wallace recalled saying: "I know this sounds crazy, but there's only one person I want in this role. And that's who I'm writing it for. And his name is Jordan Fisher. There is no one else for me."

He continued, "I know I'll probably never get him. I know he's busy and he's so super talented and he's got movies. But if you're asking me who is my dream talent for this role, it was, is, and always will be Jordan. And that's the end."

Wallace said that everyone was convinced that Fisher was an unattainable choice, so they got to work on casting the role. They completely forgot about the actor until someone asked, "Did anybody call Jordan? We should probably just check in with him, right?"

"We checked in with him and here we are," Wallace said.
