13 Badass Female Film Stars

Kiersey Clemons will make her DC Extended Universe debut as Iris West in "Justice League" later this year, telling TooFab she's "f-cking stoked" to be part of the superhero world in the wake of "Wonder Woman's" massive success.

The 23-year-old actress will play Barry Allen's better half alongside Ezra Miller in the upcoming "Flashpoint" film, but already filmed a cameo for the 2017 team-up movie.

"It was really exciting and I loved everyone," she told TooFab while promoting her upcoming film "The Only Living Boy In New York. "Everyone was really excited to be there. I wasn't there for very long, I didn't shoot very much, but I just got thrown into the world of it all so it was like an adrenaline rush."

And Hall H at Comic-Con wasn't the only one excited for the film after the latest trailer dropped. "I was fucking pumped," she said of the sneak peek, "I was like, 'Are you kidding me?!'"

After "Batman v. Superman" was mildly received, the DCEU got a burst of renewed interest after the release of "Wonder Woman." So, how does it feel to be part of this world in light of the film's record-breaking run?

"Wonder Woman was the shit. After I saw it, I was like, oh my god, I can't fucking wait," said Clemons. "I'm not playing a Wonder Woman, but that was very inspiring, not just as a woman but as an actress. I'm fucking stoked!"

Going forward in her career, it sounds like Clemons would love to take on a role like Diana of Themyscira herself.

"I want to do some physical stuff. I want to do something not as sweet or docile. I want to be a badass," he explained. "I'm ready to fucking fight. I just did a thriller and there's a lot of fighting in it and I think that's what inspired me to be like, you know what, I want to do this action thing."

Fans will see Clemons' Iris West cameo in "Justice League" when it drops November 17.

We'll have more from Kiersey about working with Kate Beckinsale, Jeff Bridges, Pierce Brosnan and Callum Turner on "The Only Living Boy In New York" next week.
