It was announced today that Kevin Smith would not only be returning to direct an episode of The Flash this September, but that he’ll also be directing an episode of new CW acquisition Supergirl. Smith announced his joy at the opportunity to direct Melissa Benoist and co. via a Facebook post, where he also ended up revealing the title of the episode he’ll be directing, Supergirl Lives.
You may remember Smith wrote a script for a Superman movie titled Superman Lives, which in the end never got made. Smith clarified that the title has nothing to do with the plot of the episode itself and is merely a homage to his failed Superman project.
