After director Rick Famuyiwa departed The Flash over creative differences, fans of the DCEU wondered whether or not actress Kiersey Clemons, who has worked closely with Rick in the past, would follow suit. However, these worries were alleviated when it was stated that she would not only remain in the DCEU as Iris West, but had already filmed a cameo for the highly anticipated Justice League film. Just yesterday, Clemons tweeted out a picture which displayed the actress holding up a zipped bag labeled “Iris W”. Based on the label, it is likely safe to assume that the wig in the bag will be Iris West’s hairstyle in Justice League. Check it out below:

Despite the reveal being rather unconventional for a major superhero movie, Clemons’ post shows that she is clearly enjoying playing the role of Iris West, and does not seemed concerned about the current situation of The Flash. Perhaps her tweet can relieve fans who were worried about the state of the scarlet speedster’s upcoming movie.
