Clemons additionally confirmed her casting on Instagram Stories.

The Wrap also reported the news, citing a source with knowledge of the project.

Clemons was first cast as Iris, the love interest of Miller's Barry Allen/The Flash in July 2016 when the film was being helmed by director Rick Famuyiwa. The Flash has gone through multiple creative teams with It director Andy Muschietti now at the helm.

Clemons was originally first set to appear as Iris in 2017's Justice League, but her scene with Miller was cut from the theatrical version of the film, which was directed by Joss Whedon.

Zack Snyder was the original director of Justice League and dropped out of the project due to a family tragedy. Snyder has restored the Iris scene in his new version of Justice League, which comes to HBO Max on March 18.

Both Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck will be reprising their roles as Batman in the film.
