Fanboy filmmaker Kevin Smith proved that he could hang in The CW’s corner of the DC Universe when he directed the season three episode of ‘The Flash’ titled ‘The Runaway Dinosaur’. In fact, he did such a good job that the powers that be decided to bring him back for another lap with the Scarlet Speedster. But when exactly will we find Silent Bob behind the camera chronicling the adventures of Barry Allen once again? Now we have a better idea.
Following his first stint on The Fastest Man Alive’s show, Smith revealed that he’d love to bring his DC Comics creation Onomatopoeia to ‘Arrow’ next. Though that doesn’t appear to be in the cards just yet, his crusade to bring the villain to the small screen continues on. And while he happened to be talking about that mission with Den of Geek, the director shared when he would be returning to Central City:
“Oh my god, I would love that so much. I’ve not heard from anybody over there, even though I’ve talked about it in the press quite a bit and stuff. 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***. Even if they don’t, maybe I could do it on ‘Flash’, or ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’, or now ‘Supergirl’ as well. There’s a couple of shows there.”
There you have it. Kevin Smith will direct the seventh episode of ‘The Flash’ season three. With the season premiere set for October 4th, that would mean that we’re likely to see his episode sometime in November. And though we don’t have any details regarding what awaits Smith (or Barry for that matter) right now, it’s very possible that we may know more by the time San Diego Comic Con rolls around in a few weeks. If that’s the case, we here at ScienceFiction.com will keep you informed.
