The CW announced today at the Television Critics Association that Clerks filmmaker Kevin Smith will direct an upcoming episode of The Flash.

Smith has written a number of comics and a script for Superman Lives back in the '90s, but has always shied away from directing a comic book property.

The episode Smith is set to direct will air in May, close to the season finale of The Flash. No episode number or airdate was revealed at TCA.

I know I can't be the only one who hopes to see a robot spider in the episode...!

While Smith hasn't written The Flash that I can recall, it's worth mentioning that he wrote a critically-acclaimed run on Green Arrow, the other of The CW's big DC superheroes.

Smith, who is prolific on social media, hasn't yet commented on the release of the information.
