Filmmaker and geek icon Kevin Smith has had the privilege of directing three episodes for Supergirl and three episodes of The Flash. Given his love for comic books and extensive knowledge of DC Comics characters, having him directing numerous episodes for these two popular Arrowverse shows is a no-brainer.
Recently, Smith shared a special gift he received from the Construction/Paint team from The Flash. You can check out Smith’s gift down below:

Smith has directed the following episodes for Supergirl: “Damage”, “Distant Sun” and “Supergirl Lives”. As for The Flash, Smith directed “Null and Annoyed”, “Killer Frost” and “The Runaway Dinosaur”.
It is nice to see The Flash‘s construction/paint team honor Smith’s work behind the camera on these episodes. Smith is known for being such a huge fan of these characters, so this gift is well-deserved.
