Kevin Smith Wants To Direct Arrow, Legends Of Tomorrow, Gotham, And Riverdale

Kevin Smith is starting to check off the CW DC shows one by one, and the fan favorite director isn't content with stopping at just The Flash and Supergirl.

Tonight's episode of The Flash will be Smith's third episode in the CW DC-verse, but in his latest Facebook Live chat, Smith was asked if he would like to expand to the other two shows on the roster. Smith obviously would love to direct Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow, but he isn't stopping with just The CW.

“Well, it’s a big belt Wess, let’s be honest. I can fit a lot, all four CW series and about 8 networks under this belt, um, the belt that I wear around this prestigious gut. However, I love, I’m just glad I got to do anything. So I’ve done two Flash’s, and a Supergirl. Hopefully, I get to come back and do another Supergirl. I would love to go over to Legends of course man, and as I said last season, I’d love to go to Arrow, particularly if they let me write an episode where I could bring back my character or co-write whatever, with my character Onomatopoeia, the guy who makes noises, Mr. Shushee in the comics, that would be fantastic, so I’ve let that be known many times “I’d love to do Arrow!” and crickets, so ya know, I’ll, I don’t care, anybody that’s just like “come play”, I like to come play, and these are shows that I actually adore. I love Flash and Supergirl, so it’s very to go play in that world. I’m a big Legends fan as well, so it would be easy to dive into that world, but the Arrow thing, ya know, is personal connects because I wrote the comic years ago, so hopefully one day man.”

DC's reach doesn't just end with The CW, and Smith would love to get a crack at those as well.

“Maybe Gotham too, but that’s not Berlanti-verse. Riverdale son, that’s the next one man. I’ve seen it in little pieces and whatnot. Riverdale, it’s Archie as if it took place in like Twin Peaks. Sick, I can’t wait. I want to direct that, that’s a high school show.”

Those could all very well happen, but in the meantime, Smith's episode of The Flash, "Killer Frost", airs tonight. As for Arrow, the show is taking a break before it's big 100th episode. You can view the synopsis for that episode below.

ARROW CELEBRATES 100 EPISODES; THE EPIC SUPERHERO CROSSOVER CONTINUES — Oliver (Stephen Amell) wakes up to a life where he never got on The Queen’s Gambit.

Everything seems perfect, but Oliver starts to notice small imperfections that make him question this new reality.
