Kevin Smith is returning to direct another episode of “The Flash”.
The “Mallrats” and “Tusk” director helmed an episode (‘The Runaway Dinosaur’) of The CW series earlier this year and now tells Den of Geek he’s returning to direct a season 3 episode.
“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—.”
Smith says he wants to do an episode of “Arrow” so much so he can bring to the show a character he himself created for the “Green Arrow” comic book – Onomatopoeia.
The villainous character he wrote gets about saying sound effects like ‘boom’ but Smith doesn’t think that’d work for the series.
“[I]nstead of just doing the actual sound – which to me, in the real world, would be like the dude from Police Academy making noises with his mouth – he’ll just have little cards. Business cards that have typewritten words of whatever the f—. So instead of him saying ‘blam’, you’d find this card on your desk and turn around and ‘blam’, he’d shoot you and stuff like that. Which I think is a little more chilly, you know, for doing it in live action. So [you read] ‘slit’, and you’re like ‘slit?’, and then all of a sudden you turn around he cuts your f—ing throat and dude just cocks his head Michael Myers style and watches you go down. So yeah, I’ve obviously thought about it a little bit, but it would be cool to do. Hopefully, hopefully they’ll tap me.”
“The Flash” and “The Arrow” return to The CW in October.
