After directing the latest episode of The Flash, comic book aficionado Kevin Smith says he wants to try his hand at Arrow.
Speaking to Variety, Smith said he would be glad to write and direct an episode of the show that started The CW’s comic book TV universe.
The indie filmmaker, who has written two Green Arrow comics, said, “I would love to jump in for a one or two episode arc just to bring that Onomatopoeia character to life. That would be so badass – I created this character in the comics and then to do a live-action version of it that fit into their universe, fit into the run of their show? That would be exciting to me.”
Kevin Smith, an uber-fan of both shows, had a blast working with the cast and the production team of The Flash. And, he’s already been signed on to direct an episode in Season 3, which is likely to begin filming in August.
With two episodes of The Flash left in this season, Smith said he got a peek at what comes next for Barry Allen and his friends. He said the ending of next week’s episode is ‘huge’ and ‘massive’, leading into Barry’s conflict with Zoom in the finale.
He said, “I saw what was happening in the episode after mine and I got jealous, because the tail end of the episode after mine, that’s like jaw-droppingly huge in the world of ‘Flash,’ it’s massive.”
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8pm EST on The CW.SuperFable
