The unwavering vision of Zack Snyder’s Justice League has just been unveiled by Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment via HBO Max. The four-hour superhero epic was fashioned to rectify the excisions made to the 2017 theatrical version of the film, which has been disowned by Snyder in the past.
Playing Iris West in the film is Kiersey Clemons, the talented Florida native who made her big-screen debut in the coming-of-age comedy Dope in 2015. In the past five years, Clemons has gone back and forth between film and television to deliver one memorable character after another, though not every role has been a hit.

Niels Arden Oplev’s remake of the 1990 sci-fi thriller Flatliners stars Clemons alongside Elliot Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, and James Norton. The quintet plays a group of medical students who attempt to peer into the afterlife by temporarily stopping their own hearts.
Upon flatlining, each victim experiences a strange hallucinatory purgatory that draws them one step closer to the other side of existence. However, the deeper the group gets invested, the more dangerous the stakes become.
4 Best: Hearts Beat Loud (2018) – 6.9
Clemons stars opposite Nick Offerman in the offbeat musical father-daughter dramedy Hearts Beat Loud, in which the two form an unexpected singer/songwriter team during the summer.
