In case you were hoping that The CW's Iris West might have some kind of influence on Justice League's Iris West, prepare to be disappointed.
Fans of DC Comics have been treated to both big screen and small screen versions of their favorite characters in live action in recent years. As Warner Bros. moves forward with their Justice League film franchise, more and more characters from shows such as Arrow and The Flash will be adapted to the big screen.
Among those names will be The Flash character Iris West. Played by Candice Patton on The CW series, the role will be revamped by Kiersey Clemons in Justice League as she makes her DC Extended Universe debut. Will the two characters be similar? Inevitably. Will Clemons pull any inspiration from Patton's version of the character, though? Not at all.
"When I do projects where it's [characters that have been adapted before]... no," Clemons said. "I will let it affect me. Actually, I lied. I saw a little bit of it before I did [Justice League]. But now it's like, 'Oh no, no, no.' Because I'll pull from it! I'll be like, 'I want to do that. No, I don't want to do that.' No, no, no."
Clemons is keeping a solid distance from the TV series to avoid being influenced, but should be in the clear to check the series out now. Having wrapped production on Justice League, the actress is also sitting out the re-shoots process of the film which is being guided by Joss Whedon following Zack Snyder's departure from the film.
"Not doing reshoots, so I don't even know if the movie is being made anymore!" Clemons said. "But we're about to find out! But I got to do my stuff with Zack, and I hope he's well, and we're going to see what's going to happen."
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes -- Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash -- it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a story by Snyder and Terrio, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Ciarán Hinds, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, and J. K. Simmons.
