Kevin Smith (Clerks, Tusk) fulfilled one of his career dreams when he stepped onto the set of The CW’s The Flash to direct “The Runaway Dinosaur” in season two. Smith is now returning to The Flash to direct episode 7 of season three and is taking to Twitter to express his excitement.
Love "directing" @CW_TheFlash so much! We shot a scene with Alchemy last night. I had to hide my nerd-boner with my script the whole time…

This episode will be the last before the big crossover event between The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.
With season three already in production, the director is now getting ready to film that episode in Vancouver. Deep in the Berlanti-verse up in Canada, the director has been able to see the first two episodes of season three that are now complete and has nothing but praise for them.
“I saw episode 1 and 2 already, because they are up to shooting episode 6 right now, so I’ve seen episodes 1 and 2 cut together. Phenomenal! The bar is high, so I’m kind of worried about that.”
“Blinded by anger, Barry unwittingly plays into Zoom’s game and uncovers the evil speedster’s true goal: to destroy all Earths in the multiverse. In the race of his life, Barry ultimately gets the upper hand against Zoom and defeats his nemesis. But unable to celebrate victory, Barry makes a world-shaking decision and speeds back in time to the night his mother died to stop Reverse Flash from killing her, irrevocably changing his past and redetermining his future.”
The Flash Season 3 is set to kick-off on Tuesday, October 4 at 8/7c on The CW with the Season 3 premiere titled “Flashpoint”.
