DC Extended Universe filmmaker Zack Snyder has released a new look at Kiersey Clemons as Iris West.
Clemons' role was ultimately cut from the Justice League film, which means this picture is from a deleted scene. The photo, which Snyder captioned "Cute couple," shows Iris standing next to Ezra Miller's Barry Allen, aka the Flash. They seem to be engaged in conversation, though we may never know what is being said. This isn't the first photo of Iris from the film, but it is the first to show Iris and Barry together.
Clemons was announced to play Iris in July 2016. She was set to make her DC Extended Universe debut as Iris West in Justice League and then reprise the role in The Flash. As of May last year, she is still slated to debut in the Miller-led solo film.
Justice League ultimately earned disappointing box office totals and was met with mixed critical reviews. Since then, a movement to release an earlier cut of the film. The #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign was launched by fans who were disappointed by 2017's Justice League, which notoriously went through a series of massive reshoots under Joss Whedon after Snyder left the project due to a family tragedy.
Next up for the DC Extended Universe is Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), slated for release Feb. 7, 2020; Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984, coming June 5 2020; James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, which arrives August 6, 2021; and Matt Reeves' solo Batman film, which will swing into theaters June 25, 2021.
