Writer-director Kevin Smith, the all-round comic book expert that has tossed his proverbial hat into the ring to helm installments of Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and even Daredevil, has confirmed plans to direct an episode of The Flash season 3.
Soon after giving his two cents on the potential introduction of Onomatopoeia in Arrow, Smith revealed that come September, he’ll take the reins of the seventh episode of the upcoming season.
Smith, who drew praise for helming last season’s “The Runaway Dinosaur,” is certainly well versed in all things Barry Allen, and it’ll be interesting to see how things stand by the time episode seven rolls around, particularly with the introduction of the Flashpoint arc.
Whatever the case, here’s what Kevin Smith told Den of Geek in a recent interview.
“I know I’m going back to The Flash, first week of September, to direct episode 7 of season 3. Still haven’t heard anything back from Arrow. You know, I wish, it would be amazing because I would love to write and direct Onomatopoeia in the show. Um, but I know they’re doing – what is it? – Wild Dog this year, as well as Vigilante, so maybe they’re just like ‘we don’t need you,’ or whatever. But, at the moment, anyone over there raises a flag; I’m like ‘please, let me in!’ That’d be fun as fuck.”
The Flash will return for season 3 in October and despite previous claims to the contrary, the long-anticipated Flashpoint arc may not have much of an impact on Arrow after all.
