Evidence that a reimagining can be a wonderful thing.
THE FLASH has had a rough go of things initially, but the film appears to have leveled somewhat out with the addition of its latest cast member. DOPE's Kiersey Clemons (who was also a great addition to the NEIGHBORS sequel) is playing Iris West, the love interest to Flash's alter ego, Barry Allen. According to Variety, Clemons inclusion is a done deal and a welcomed choice for the character.
West started out as a white woman, but now Clemons will in fact be the second black actress to helm the role after Candice Patton continues to do so on the CW's Flash TV show. We caught a glimpse of Ezra Miller's Barry Allen in a confusing scene in BATMAN V SUPERMAN, but his most recent appearance in the first trailer for JUSTICE LEAGUE leads me to believe that the DC superhuman team-up will actually have some levity.
