The Flash director Rick Famuyiwa announced earlier this week that he was leaving the project, citing creative differences with Warner Bros. He had already cast Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, and actress he had previously worked with on his indy movie Dope.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Clemons to get her thoughts on Famuyiwa leaving The Flash, and naturally she wasn’t too happy about it.
“Rick was one of the main reasons I wanted to do the movie,” Clemons told The Hollywood Reporter. “So him not being a part of it is obviously very upsetting to me.”
“All I can do is give it up to the gods. Let’s see what happens. Let’s see who’s going to jump in,” Clemons said of a new director.
“Ezra and I are going to do what we promised to do from the beginning,” Clemons added. “No matter who the director is, I am going to do what I think Iris should be.”
It was revealed that Clemons also has a cameo as Iris West in Justice League. That movie is due out on November 17, 2017. The Flash, which was supposed to be out in March 2018, will likely be delayed.
