While The Flash is still a year away from production, we’re beginning to get some casting news surrounding the film. According to Variety, Kiersey Clemons – who had a breakout performance as Diggy in Rick Famuyiwa’s film Dope – is reportedly the frontrunner to land the female lead role in The Flash.
Sources say the female role is most likely Iris West, Barry Allen’s love interest and a journalist in Central City.
Clemons most recently starred alongside Chloe Grace Mortez as Beth in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
