After making his CW-verse debut directing this week's episode of The Flash, Kevin Smith wants to return - but to write Arrow and bring in one of the characters he created for the character's comic book title.
“I would love to jump in for a one or two episode arc just to bring that Onomatopoeia character to life,” Smith told Variety. “That would be so badass – I created this character in the comics and then to do a live-action version of it that fit into their universe, fit into the run of their show? That would be exciting to me.”
“That’s the one I can get my head around writing, but Flash, whenever they bring me back, I think I prefer somebody else doing it,” Smith continued. Smith will return to direct a season 3 episode of The Flash. “I heard rumor that when I go back, I think Zack [Stentz] might be writing my script again, which would be amazing – we’d be keeping the home team together, so that’d be cool.”
Smith helped relaunch Green Arrow in 2001 when the character of Oliver Queen was brought back from the dead, a run which included the creation of the aforementioned Onomatopoeia. He has yet to be involved in the Arrow television show.
