Kiersey Clemons The Flash

While BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE may not have kicked off the DCEU in the manner which Warner Bros. was hoping it would, you get the feeling that they've taken the criticisms lobbed at BvS into account for their upcoming slate of films. One of those films will likely be begin production later this year and soon start filling out its cast. After Seth Grahame-Smith departed THE FLASH over creative differences, DOPE director Rick Famuyiwa stepped in to replace him and he may be bringing one of the stars of that film along with him.

According to Variety, Kiersey Clemons is currently Famuyiwa's top choice to star with Ezra Miller in THE FLASH. Clemons starred in DOPE as Cassandra "Diggy" Andrews alongside Shameik Moore and Tony Revolori. Since then Kiersey Clemons has landed roles in the recent NEIGHBORS 2: SORORITY RISING and the upcoming remake of FLATLINERS. It's not known exactly who her character would be in THE FLASH, but Variety's insiders say that it's likely to be Iris West, "the tough-as-nails journalist and friend of Barry Allen, the alter ego of the Flash."

THE FLASH will be released in 2018.

You gotta be kidding me. They're making Iris a black girl in this movie,too? And the story is going to be him fighting Thawne? THIS MOVIE IS A CARBON COPY OF THE SHOW!!! What crap. Anyone who loves the show like I do is gonna feel like we're watching a shittier version of season one.

I was hoping those rumors of Imogen Poots being cast as Iris West were true.

But they appear to be making the movie PC. Ugh, I f-ing hate Hollywood nowadays where everything is PC and nothing is true to the source material (cough*Ghostbusters*cough).

Well, my dear Martin, because Iris West is just as Black as Johnny Storm or Deadshot... As in NOT !
They did it for PC and quotas reasons in the TV show and are doing it again in the Flash film.
It has nothing to do with how gorgeous or talented she is (and she is both, actually), it's a question of skin color if she's been chosen, because PC is reverse-racism, but racism nonetheless !

Seriously? Jesus fucking Christ people - get over yourselves. It's racist to cast her in this role? Give me a break! Cry me a river. Let's make sure to retain all whiteness and destroy any attempts at diversity that Hollywood attempts, because God forbid Hollywood try to expect what our real world is. Suggesting she was cast SOLELY based on her skin color, and not her talent, is so insulting. You all sound like whiny children to me, sorry.
