A new set photo from The Flash shows Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen and Kiersey Clemons’ Iris West together.
The Flash might be one of DC’s most ambitious projects in recent memory. From what we know, the film will be focusing itself on setting up the multiverse, introducing Sasha Calle’s Supergirl, reintroducing Michael Keaton’s Batman, and showing Barry Allen saving his mom. That’s a whole lot to pack in for a superhero project, but director Andy Muschietti has proven time and time again that he’s a capable auteur. While the project will certainly have its high-octane action scenes and jaw-dropping reveals, it’s also set to have quieter moments that reflect Barry Allen’s introspective and sensitive nature. One thing that the upcoming project will be focusing itself on is the relationship between Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen and Kiersey Clemons’ Iris West.
Introduced in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Kiersey Clemons’ Iris West is set to have a pivotal role in The Flash as Barry Allen’s love interest. Details are slim on how much her relationship with Ezra Miller’s character will be developed, but it’s hard not to imagine them dating by the end of the film. A set photo taken in London shows Miller dressed up in a suit at the foot of what looks like a courthouse alongside Clemons’ Iris. It’s possible that Barry is attending the trial of Henry Allen and West is covering it for Picture News, leading to a chance encounter between the two.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint comic storyline, which followed The Flash as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles. It is currently unknown how much inspiration the upcoming Ezra Miller film will take from the comic.
The Flash is set to hit theaters on June 3, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the future of the DC Extended Universe, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content!
