The news broke today by THR that Kiersey Clemons, who plays Iris West in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, will be making a return in Ezra Miller’s solo DC film, The Flash.
Here’s what the article said:
Kiersey Clemons has closed a deal to star opposite Ezra Miller in Warner Bros.’ DC movie The Flash.
The actress will reprise her role as Iris West, the romantic interest of Barry Allen, aka The Flash. Clemons portrayed the intrepid reporter West in Justice League, but her role was cut by director Zack Snyder back in 2017 before he turned the film over to Joss Whedon. Snyder added her character back in recently for his upcoming cut, which debuts on HBO Max on March 18.
Honestly, I was not expecting Kiersey Clemons to make a return as Iris West. I’m happy for Clemons because I felt like they completely wasted her for no reason when she was cut from Justice League. Will she be a new character who has never interacted with Barry or will she be the one from Zack Snyder’s Justice League since she was originally cut from the film? Maybe we’ll see more things happening after the release of the Snyder Cut.
The Flash will release in theaters on November 4, 2022
