Kevin Smith is no stranger to the Arrowverse. He has directed multiple episodes of The Flash and Supergirl. He has yet to touch Arrow, which is truly a shame due to the fact that he’s the creator of one of Green Arrow’s greatest foes, Onomatopoeia.
The Arrowverse is known for its yearly crossovers and they recently did Crisis On Earth-X. Smith hasn’t directed a crossover episode as yet, but the episodes he’s done for The Flash and Supergirl are widely praised. So, it figures that Kevin Smith would want in on the crossover action. On a the most recent Fat Man on Batman Podcast, Smith revealed he had a few ideas for an Arrowverse Crossover.
“If they gave me any kind of carte blanche I would try to do “Rock of Ages”, but you couldn’t really do it without the real Justice League, it would be so compromised. I would go for, I mean, you can’t do the real “Crisis on Infinite Earths”, but they do have a multiverse in that show like Supergirl exists in a different universe than Flash and Arrow, so you could. The worlds are colliding, like the multiverse story, the classic “Crisis on Infinite Earths” multiverse story. That would cover a week of programming and stuff. I would go for that.”
Arrow executive producer and showrunner Marc Guggenheim revealed that he intended for Crisis on Earth-X to be a full fledged TV movie. The idea was cut short due to union rules involving credit. This could bode well for Kevin Smith as he could direct all episodes of the crossover and combine them into one big film.

Crisis On Earth-X was the crossover Arrowverse fans had been waiting for, bringing together the universes of all four CW DC programs into one epic showdown. Now, a DC Comics concept artist who works on the design of the shows gave us a peek behind the scenes to see some in-progress looks at the characters.
Here is the synopsis for Crisis On Earth-X:
THE EPIC FOUR-WAY CROSSOVER WITH “ARROW,” “SUPERGIRL,” “THE FLASH” AND “DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW” BEGINS — Barry (guest star Grant Gustin) and Iris’s (guest star Candice Patton) wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. All of the superheroes band together with help from their super friends like Citizen Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller), The Ray (guest star Russell Tovey), Felicity Smoak (guest star Emily Bett Rickards), Iris West and Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) to take on their most formidable villains yet. Earth’s mightiest heroes – Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin) and White Canary (guest star Caity Lotz) – lead their teams into battle to save the world. Larry Teng directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg & Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Robert Rovner & Jessica Queller (#308).
The Arrowverse shows will return next week starting with Supergirl on Monday at 8|7c only on The CW.
