24!!Tropes & Trivia in her works:
26* DeletedRole: Rick Famuyiwa (who previously directed her in ''Dope'') chose Kiersey to portray Iris West in his planned film adaptation of Franchise/TheFlash in the Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse starring Creator/EzraMiller as Barry Allen, but then he left the project out of CreativeDifferences with Creator/DCFilms in 2016. Kiersey was still set to appear in 2017's ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'', but her scenes were ultimately scrapped by Creator/JossWhedon after Creator/ZackSnyder left the post-production. The role was eventually restored in the [[ReCut director's cut]], ''Film/ZackSnydersJusticeLeague''. One week before the latter film's release in March 2021, Clemons was announced to reprise the role of Iris in ''Film/{{The Flash|2022}}'', which was eventually directed by Creator/AndresMuschietti.
