Warner Bros. may recast Iris West


  • Kiersey Clemons was supposed to debut as Iris West in Justice League, but her scene was cut at the end.

  • The cameo managed to leak online shortly after the movie hit theaters, anyways.

  • A visual effects artist who worked in the movie said on Reddit that they were going to replace Clemons with a digital woman in the scene because she had been brought on by Rick Famuyiwa, and after he left the Flash movie due to creative difference, the studio was free to recast her. That was around the time the cameo was cut from Justice League.

  • Now that her scene leaked online, they may stop the recasting to stop fan backlash, allowing Clemons to retain the role of Iris West after all, but no one knows what's going to happen.
