In the latest "Fat Man on Batman" podcast, filmmaker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats) talks about his upcoming episode of The Flash.

"It is wonderful, dude," Smith told his co-host, Marc Bernardin. "First cut was 55-minutes, of my episode of The Flash that I directed. We got it down to the running time, it's 42-minutes. It may be my favorite thing I've ever directed. Now that doesn't mean like I suddenly don't like the movies that I directed. I wrote and directed those things. But this, just as a directing exercise — removing scripts and sh*t like that and about how I personally feel about material, whether or not it generated from me — I think this is hands down my best directing job I've ever done. Just directing. I feel good, and I've gotten some nice praise from upstairs. Sounds like I will be able to go back, unless they catch me with a dead girl or a live boy. I think I will be able to go back."

"Boy oh boy, it turned out well," he added. "I'm very very happy. This is going to sound gross, but I've watched it no less than 50 times. It really holds up."

Listen to Smith's comments in the video below.

Smith's episode of The Flash, which was written by Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men First Class) and will feature an appearance from Jason Mewes, will air next month.
