Kevin Smith will be back for another round with The Flash. Warner Bros. Television has confirmed that Smith will be back to direct an episode during the first half of season three.
Smith made his directorial debut this season, working on the episode “The Runaway Dinosaur” which will air next week. This episodes focuses on what to do with Barry (Grant Gustin) gone. The team has to find a way to handle an old yet familiar enemy. Smith directed the episode which was written by Zack Stentz.
Now that production on his episode has wrapped, Smith talked about the experience on his podcast “Fat Man on Batman.”
“It is wonderful, dude. First cut was 55-minutes, of my episode of The Flash that I directed. We got it down to the running time, it’s 42-minutes. It may be my favorite thing I’ve ever directed. Now that doesn’t mean like I suddenly don’t like the movies that I directed. I wrote and directed those things. But this, just as a directing exercise— removing scripts and sh*t like that and about how I personally feel about material, whether or not it generated from me — I think this is hands down my best directing job I’ve ever done. Just directing. I feel good, and I’ve gotten some nice praise from upstairs. Sounds like I will be able to go back, unless they catch me with a dead girl or a live boy. I think I will be able to go back.”
The Flash is currently on a production hiatus but will be heading back for season three early July.
