Kevin Smith To Direct An Episode of The Flash


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.

    This is incredible news! It's also cool to hear he'll be doing one of the late episodes in the season, as the storyline will be close to reaching it's boiling point and he's perfect to give his insight.

  1. Yay! Way to go Kevin!

    One thing I know from listening to his podcast is that K. Smith certainly has a great love for CW's "The Flash" series. That's a great place to start.

    I guess I'm the only one who finds Smith overrated and annoying. We get it, he's a comic book fan. Doesn't mean they have to keep asking him what he thinks about EVERYTHING comic book related or keep hire him to direct episodes or anything. It's not like "Flash" need the publicity, it seems to be doing just fine by CW standards without added press.
