It looks like fans might have to wait a little longer for any concrete official information on DC’s upcoming standalone film The Flash. Actress Kiersey Clemons who portrays the character of Iris West in DCEU has confirmed that she is not shooting for The Flash film this year. This adds to the authenticity of the recent report that claimed that the principal photography on the film will likely start next year in February.
During an interview with Variety, when Clemons was asked to offer an update on the status of The Flash film, she said that she doesn’t know much about the film except for the director’s name who is helming the film.
“No idea,” Clemons said about The Flash film. “We don’t know yet. I mean, we have a little bit of idea who the director is, but, I can’t say that.”
She seemed to sway away from saying anything about the upcoming project as the film studio hasn’t officially announced any information yet.
When asked if The Flash is currently on hold, Clemons said a yes. She confirmed that she is not shooting for the film for the rest of the year.
“So far, I am not doing Flash for the rest of the year,” Clemons said.
Earlier this month, it was confirmed that the movie will begin principal photography next year in February, with production taking place in Leavesden, England, and in Atlanta, Georgia. The Flash filming is rumored to wrap up by May of 2019.
Nothing much about The Flash movie is known at the moment except that John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are helming the film. Some of the actors who are confirmed to show up in the upcoming film are Ezra Miller reprising the titular character, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West and Billy Crudup as Barry’s Father, Henry Allen. Casting for the other characters is expected to begin soon.
While The Flash doesn’t have a release date attached yet, it is expected to come out sometime around 2020.
