14. Iris West

The Flash 2

Candice Patton will play Iris West in The Flash, but judging from this trailer, she won’t be quite as close to Barry Allen as her comic book counterpart…at least not yet! Iris and Barry were at one point married, but “The New 52” reboot made them just friends, and it looks like that’s what we should expect here as well. Since their marriage was wiped from history, one of Barry’s fellow CSI’s – Patty Spivot – has become his main love interest, but whether this series will introduce her somewhere down the line remains to be seen. Iris was portrayed as Caucasian in the comic books, so casting Patton is a good way of bringing some diversity to this world. What isn’t clear from this trailer is whether or not Iris is a journalist in this take on The Flash, but it seems likely that she will be.
