Kevin Smith Talks His Upcoming ‘The Flash’ Episode & Possibly Directing ‘Arrow’

Arrow Season 5 officially began production today in Vancouver, Canada, with the premiere being titled “Legacy” which is being directed by James Bamford, the show’s excellent stunt coordinator. In a recent interview with Den of Geek, Kevin Smith (who previously directed an episode of The Flash in Season 2) continued to talk about the chances of him directing an episode one day of Arrow and what he would want to do in that episode.

In the interview, he expressed his interest of adapting the character that he created years ago, Onomatopoeia, as well as revealing when he will be going back to The Flash for Season 3 as well as the episode number.

“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**k.”

The Flash Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, October 4 while Arrow Season 5 is set to premiere on Wednesday, October 5, both respectively at 8/7c on The CW
