Director Kevin Smith is a lifelong Batman fan and all around professional geek. Most of his films have some sort of Star Wars reference, he has written Batman, Green Arrow, and Daredevil comic book issues. Needless to say, his geek cred run deep. While he has been in a little bit of a slump for his experimental films, he has been killing it on the small screen. Smith directed two of the best episodes of The Flash (“The Runaway Dinosaur” and “Killer Frost”) and his Supergirl episode (“Supergirl Lives”) airs January 23rd. The lifelong Batman fan has never directed anything associated with his favorite comic book character Batman, until now.
