Variety reports that actress Kiersey Clemons has closed a deal to appear in the feature film version of The Flash. Clemons, a veteran of director Rick Famuyiwa‘s Dope, was first tipped to take a part in the film a few weeks ago.
It is presumed she will play Iris West, described as a hard-hitting reporter and friend of Ezra Miller‘s Barry Allen. Though, as seen in the Justice League teaser reel at Comic-Con, the feature film Barry is not as good at making friends as his television counterpart.
The Flash speeds into theaters on March 16th, 2018.
