WATCH: New clip from The Flash reintroduces Zack Snyder’s Justice League star

May 14th, 2023 by Marc Comments

A new clip from The Flash, reintroduces a character we last saw in Zack Snyder’s Justice League!

Yes, Kiersey Clemons appears in a new clip from the movie, below, as Iris West, the future love of Barry Allen/Flash played by Ezra Miller and it’s great to have her back as she was cut from the disasters Justice League that was released by Warners Bros directed by Joss Whedon.

It could be argued that this muddies the waters about which Just League is canon now but I believe that her being cut from the released movie doesn’t mean she didn’t still exist… I’m confident that Warners would argue the Whedon cut is canon.

While the DCU, now being overseen by James Gunn and Peter Safran, is being majorly restructured with new stars and stories, the current theory is that The Flash, by introducing the multiverse and altering the reality of the DCEU as it is right now, will be responsible for the new DCU, with the changes being explained away by Flash/Barry Allen’s meddling. Director Andy Muschietti has addressed this, saying that a sequel was the plan but it’s all a bit up in the air right now: “We didn’t talk about it,” he says.

“I think that we’re all waiting to see how this movie does. Of course, there’s excitement about continuing the story, especially if this movie is successful. Of course, there’s an architecture in DC that is brewing and it’s being created. And the question is, will this new architecture absorb this story?

“The good thing about the multiverse is that it is possible. The multiverse allows all of these different worlds to coexist and interact, and so, hopefully, yes, I mean, we don’t know yet. That’s the truth.”

Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to.

That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?

“The Flash” ensemble also includes rising star Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon (“Bullet Train,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”), Ron Livingston (“Loudermilk,” “The Conjuring”), Maribel Verdú (“Elite,” “Y tu mamá también”), Kiersey Clemons (“Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” “Sweetheart”), Antje Traue (“King of Ravens,” “Man of Steel”) and Michael Keaton (“Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Batman”).

The Flash arrives in the US on June 16th and in Europe/UK on June 14th.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
