Kevin Smith To Direct An Episode Of ‘Supergirl’…Plus There Will Be A Musical Crossover With The Flash!
Smith made the announcement on his YouTube channel. During the almost 20 minute clip he talked about his feelings on the first season of Supergirl, and like many, he felt that the show got off to a slow start. In fact, he says that it wasn’t until the seventh episode of the season where he thought the series began to fly (no pun intended). He also praised the show on how rich it was with the characters it had chosen to be the villains for Supergirl to face. Smith even talked about the importance of the show for many of the female fans and had a message for those who may have claimed “…that J’onn J’onzz isn’t my J’onn J’onzz” because of how different his origin on the show differed from his origins in the comics by saying that were being “nit picky.”
As of right now, there is no other news as to which number episode he will be directing or when it will air. The only information is the title and that it will air this season. In other news, Supergirl and The Flash will come together for a two-part musical crossover. This is in addition to the 4-way crossover that is expected between all the CW/DC Universe shows.
The announcement for a musical crossover also came turn the TCA’s where the shows’ Exectutive Producer, Greg Berlanti, had this to say,
“So many times, it’s a musical episode off the set. On all of the shows we like to use all of the actors’ talents. [There will] probably be an element of the songs being in the characters’ heads.”
According to the report, the show will use existing songs for the most part, but are also considering writing an original for the leads to sing.
Supergirl and The Flash premiere on Monday and Tuesday in the first week in October 2016.
