It seems that The Flash movie set to be released in 2018 has found it's choice for Iris West. Kiersey Clemons, who made a name for herself with her brilliant performance in 2015 film DOPE(movie that I did not watch so don't take my word if her performance was brilliant or not). The news comes as no real surprise after Variety reported earlier this month that Clemons was the lead choice for the role. Iris West is known for being the girlfriend and later on wife of Barry Allen aka the only Flash I care about, and the aunt and grandmother of Wally West (Kid Flash/third Flash) and Bart Allen (Impulse/fourth Flash) respectively.
ALERT: RACISTS, TURN AWAY NOW!!!
The best part about this Casting choice is that director Rick Famuyiwa has decided to go with a black version of Iris West, just like The CW's version of The Flash did with Candice Patton. This decision is amazing as more and more superhero movies are turning to more diverse casting options these days. However, of course, this news was not taken well by many mayonnaise folks on Twitter. Check out this uneducated racist get schooled in his own mentions LMAO.
