While the West-Allen epic romance in the DC TV show 'The Flash' continues to enthrall viewers, it has lately come to light that the showrunners of the film 'The Flash', are looking for a new Iris West.

The film has undergone a plethora of changes from scriptwriters to directors and release dates. Fans had even begun to lose all hope for a Flash film, that was meant to debut in 2018.

According to the latest update, Kiersey Clemons will no longer be Iris West in the forthcoming movie. The casting team wants a 21 to 25-year-old actor to play the 23-year-old Iris West. The character is described as a smart, bold cub reporter for The Citizen.

Kiersey Clemons was cast as the original Iris West in the 2017 film 'Justice League'. However, after Zack Snyder left the project due to a personal tragedy and Joss Whedon was brought on, she was no longer a part of the film.

We did get to see her in a deleted leaked scene, and fans always hoped that we would get to see Kiersey as Iris in the upcoming movies. The film has been stalled for way too long now, but the makers looking for a new Iris West indicates that things are moving forward for the film. 

Unfortunately, that's not to be so. While fans are rather upset with the news, others are wondering who could play the new Iris West. One fan suggested 'Daredevil' actress Debora Ann Woll, who does not make for a bad casting choice at all. She did do a stellar job of playing Karen Page.

Help her win this role," a fan wrote. "Nooooooo why tell us why?" one fan wrote, upset that Clemons would be replaced.

Other fans want Ezra Miller to be replaced as the Flash as well. "Ezra Miller needs to be replaced," a fan tweeted. Another wrote, "And when will Ezra Miller be replaced?"

"I believe this is a sign of DC rebooting The Flash and starting everything fresh. I wouldn't be surprised if we get news of Ezra departure next and DC announcing who will be the new Barry Allen/The Flash and Iris West in the next couple of months. #TheFlash #DCW #DCUniverse," another fan tweeted.
