Kiersey Clemons Cast as Iris West in The Flash Movie

The Flash director Rick Famuyiwa has reportedly cast Kiersey Clemons in the role of Iris West in the film. Famuyiwa has previously worked with the actress on his film Dope and he clearly enjoyed that working experience.

The role of Iris West is currently being played on television by Candice Patton and was once held by Paula Marshall in the 1990 television movie The Flash, but this will be the first time the character has been featured in a film.

It’s not known if we may get a quick cameo by the actress in the Justice League film or if her first appearance will officially be in The Flash, but don’t be surprised if she does make an appearance in Justice League.

Clemons since the annoucement, has tweeted the following:

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
