Kiersey Clemons is Iris West in The Flash Movie!
Earlier this month, it was reported that the female lead for The Flash movie was down to three names and now Variety reports that Iris West has been found in Dope and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising star Kiersey Clemons! She reunites with Dope director Rick Famuyiwa for the film.
Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) is set to play Barry Allen, aka The Flash, in the feature, following his recent cameo appearance in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Miller’s version of the Flash is also set to appear in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League alongside a full roster of iconic DC heroes, including Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Henry Cavill’s Superman. You can check out a first-look at his version of the character in the Justice League teaser trailer released at Comic-Con.
The character Iris West is currently played by Candice Patton on The CW‘s small screen take on the scarlet speedster. It is believed that the big screen version of the character may first appear in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League, set to hit theaters November 17, 2017.
The Flash boasts an original treatment by The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. It is currently without an official release date, although production is planned to start this year.
