Cult hit director Kevin Smith’s contribution to The Flash last season proved to be a solid episode, so the producers are bringing him back again this fall.
In an interview with Den of Geek, Smith confirmed he’ll be back for the seventh episode of Season 3, though he’s still having trouble breaking into fellow CW superhero series Arrow. Smith’s Season 2 episode, “Back to Normal,” featured a few trademark hallmarks (see: obligatory Jason Mewes cameo) but also tugged the right emotional heartstrings. It also brought some buzz to the series, which is always good.
Here’s an excerpt from Smith’s comments on his return:
"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 f**k."
Smith certainly seems to have found a littler corner of the TV universe where he feels comfortable, and though his films are typically a bit love-it-or-hate-it, the structure of the Flash-verse seems to have served him well.
Are you glad to see Smith making a return to The CW?
