Kiersey Clemons has nothing but praise for her character's introduction in Justice League. Warner Bros. officially kicked off the DC Extended Universe last year with Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and then followed up that film with David Ayer's Suicide Squad and Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman -- both of which helped expand the shared universe. Now, the world's finest heroes will unite in Snyder's Justice League later this year, where we'll also see some of their supporting casts join the fold.
In addition to bringing back the Trinity -- Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) -- Justice League fully introduces audiences to the remaining three core Leaguers: Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Furthermore, some of them have at least one supporting character from their solo movies that will make their DCEU debuts in Justice League, such as Commissioner Gordon (J.K. Simmons), Nuidis Vulko (Willem Dafoe), and Iris West (Clemons). Although there isn't much that's known about their roles at this time, Clemons has at least shared her excitement regarding her character's introduction.

In an interview with Coming Soon, Clemons was asked if she had taken part in ongoing reshoots being helmed by Joss Whedon (who took over for Snyder following the filmmaker's departure from the project earlier this summer), to which she responded:
"Everyone’s asking me that. No, I finished all my stuff with Zack [Snyder], I wish him well and I have no idea what’s going on right now but I’m sure whatever they’re doing is necessary. I know the parts that I did introducing Iris are f---ing sick. I can’t wait to see the movie. I’m so happy that I’ve been introduced to this genre because I didn’t really have any type of desire to be a part of any superhero world. And then I stepped on the set of Justice League and I was like, 'Holy s--t. Alright!'"
Aside from the barrage of rumors that constantly plague the DCEU, another thing that remains constant seems to be the undying love these actors and actresses have for their roles in the shared universe, and that's a sentiment that's shared by people starring in virtually every comic book movie. As for her future in the DCEU, Clemons will eventually reprise her role as Iris West in The Flash movie, titled Flashpoint. The title was officially unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con last month, and it will presumably be based on the 2011 comic book series of the same name by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert. Unfortunately, there's no telling when Flashpoint will release, but Clemons hopes it enters production by January 2018.
"Yeah. I’m gonna leave tonight to go film. I’m gonna finish up the year, and then by January if we aren’t gonna go on The Flash I will probably get back to writing and then take a little break."
The Flash movie was originally slated to release in March 2018, but with both Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa having departed the project due to creative differences, the film had been removed from the schedule. Warner Bros. is reportedly looking at multiple directors, such as Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future), to helm the production, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. If the film does move into production in 2018, it's possible that it can release in 2019 or take one of new 2020 release dates. But right now, the next DCEU movie on the docket following Justice League is James Wan's Aquaman in 2018, with David F. Sandberg's Shazam! and Wonder Woman 2 coming in 2019, along with Cyborg and Green Lantern Corps still slated for 2020.
