Not only will Justice League unite the heroes of the DC Extended Universe, but the film will also mark the first appearance of several new characters in the cinematic universe. Among the newcomers will be Iris West with actress Kiersy Clemons in the role. In an interview with Variety, Clemons discussed her experience working on the superhero epic and how it compares to the smaller projects she has worked on before.
Revealing that she made sure to line-up smaller projects to follow the Justice League shoot, Clemons explained that the large scale of DC film requires some adjusting on her part:
“The lot is huge, there are a million trailers, you go to the gym and work out with Aquaman.”
Clemons will later reprise the role of Iris West when The Flash’s first standalone film, titled Flashpoint, arrives in theaters.

But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
