Justice League not only has the monumental job of introducing DC’s most iconic heroes, but the film also needs to set the stage for future films in the DC Extended Universe. Zack Snyder has ensured that future films will be set-up in Justice League by introducing a handful of supporting characters, including the introduction of The Flash’ love interest, Iris West. Speaking to SuperHeroHype, Kiersey Clemons (Dope) discussed her role as Iris West in Justice League, and it seems like the character is involved in some pretty exciting scenes.
“I finished all my stuff with Zack [Snyder], I wish him well and I have no idea what’s going on right now, but I’m sure whatever they’re doing is necessary. I know the parts that I did introducing Iris are f*cking sick. I can’t wait to see the movie. I’m so happy that I’ve been introduced to this genre because I didn’t really have any type of desire to be a part of any superhero world. And then I stepped on the set of “Justice League” and I was like, “Holy sh*t. All right!”
After her primary role in Justice League, Clemons will star alongside Ezra Miller in the recently announced Flashpoint movie. While Clemons couldn’t say much about that particular project, the actress did reveal how she’s approaching her schedule, in preparation for the film.
“I am just taking it project by project. I have so many projects in the works that I’m not necessarily gonna be on camera for, but I’m producing and writing. I’m kind of filling this space by working on that stuff, so when it comes around for Flash I can get our movie done and then I can produce my own stuff. The Flash is gonna be taking up a lot of my time throughout the year acting, so I want to make sure I’m preparing to do the other things I wanna do when it comes to creating and casting! The f*ckin’ actors I wanna see. I wanna see some sexy black men in a movie, you know what I’m sayin’? Those are the movies I’m gonna make.”
Clemons will be introduced in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which will land in theatres on November November 16, 2017. Flashpoint is currently without a release date.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
