Acclaimed movie director and comic book Writer Kevin Smith is to direct an upcoming episode of ‘The Flash’ towards the end of the current season, slated to air in may. The announcement came from The CW at the Television Critic’s Association press tour today (January 10th).
Other than a script for the failed ‘Superman Lives’ movie, Kevin Smith has steered clear of working on comic book properties on-screen. He’s well known for writing comics and has well regarded runs under his belt on Green Arrow, Spider-Man, Green Hornet, Batman and more. Smith is a known fan of ‘The Flash’ having spoken about how much he enjoys the show on his podcast recently.
There are no other details about the episode he will direct at this time.
‘The Flash’ returns to TV on January 18th.
