Kevin Smith Heads to The Flash


Earlier this week, filmmaker Kevin Smith arrived on set to film his episode of The Flash.

If the Clerks and Yoga Hosers director is uncharacteristically quiet on social media right now, it's because he's directing his episode, which comes late in the season and in addition to the long filming days on Arrow and The Flash, it's likely filled to the brim with spoilers.

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 when Smith's involvement was announced at the Television Critics Association.

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.
