Justice League faced a lot of overhauls in the process. It’s no secret now that that’s been the case. You need only to look at the trailers to notice how much of the movie ended up on the cutting room floor, and some time ago, it was reported that actress’ Kiersey Clemons’ take as Iris West got the chop as well.

What’s more is that it sounds like Warner Bros. was eager to replace Clemons in the DCEU as a whole, as indicated by a user on Reddit who claims to have worked on the visual effects for the film. In an AMA, he stated:

“I’ve said before, we were replacing Clemons with a digital woman in the shot – Clemons was brought on because of Famuyiwa, when he bailed, it meant WB could recast her. That’s around the time the shot was cut.

Now it’s been leaked online with her in it, they’ll probably stop all the work being done on it to replace her to stop fan backlash.”

This brings up all sorts of questions. First off, it sounds like Warner Bros. was planning on replacing her, as indicated by the statement. However, with the clip now out in the open (for as short a time as it was), it sounds like should things go forward with this universe, Clemons may very well have a shot of reprising her role.

It’s very difficult to read into this comment too deeply, as we don’t really know what Warner Bros. is thinking, but it’s hard not to get the impression that they didn’t care too much for Clemons, and are working hard to weed her out before the next Flash film is underway.

    At the expense of sounding everything the Social Media Justice Squad hates, I really hope she has a nude leak at some point.

      It’s the Social Media Justice League. Get it right.

    Once again they cast someone whom I never heard of nor care to see play a main character. This is why DC movies blow.

      there’s a leaked deleted effect shot of where flash fingers the window to save her from another digital car and an actual practical explosion shot on location……. it’s just that the flash film got like recasted 3 times and she’s the most vocal because she’s waiting for over 2 years and nothing to show for it when she could do another project she could get more recognition for.

    • I mean…yeah a majority of them blow but that’s a silly reason to say they do

  • Victor Roa

    …… okay this is confusing, yeah, the question was is there a “snyder cut” and then kinda goes into “shots were finished 8 months ago.” and considering how even productions still have to go through rendering, production and edit, it still wouldn’t have been as done as the leaked photo. So all of these questions mean NOTHING if she’s still in the upcoming Flash film, he’s an effects guy who had to insert a digital double a year ago.

    One can only hope.
    She’s a horrid actress.

    Who cares. DCCU blows.
