Kiersey Clemons to Play Iris West in The Flash

[divider type=”space_thin”]
Ezra Miller is one lucky nerd. This cat gets featured in a huge scene for the trailer of the Justice League movie (even though he was basically a Sheldon Cooper expansion pack), used to make out with Zoe Kravitz, and now he gets co-star blessed with one of the dopest young actresses in Hollywood: Kiersey Clemons.

Clemons has been on the rise since Dope became a crowd pleasing hit last year and most recently when she absolutely slayed in her role in Neighbors 2.

Iris West is one of the more popular women in DC history and deserves nothing but the best in the casting department. Together, with Barry Allen, they have some of the most die-hard love interest fans that ship for them to live happily ever after no matter what comes between them. I’m not gonna lie and act like Candice Patton hasn’t done an amazing job as Iris West on The Flash airing on the CW network. I’m not gonna lie and act like I wouldn’t slap Spark the Instinct gym leader just to get a chance to have a nerdy conversation with her. But I do have a feeling Kiersey Clemons being reunited with Dope director Rick Famuyiwa is going to be another match made in heaven as she brings her incarnation of Iris West to life when The Flash premieres on March 16th, 2018..or maybeee, just maybe when Justice League drops on November 17, 2017.

    I too am excited. I don’t know how we ended up with two black women as Iris West in a row, but I am all for it.
