Today at the CW Executive Session at the ongoing Television Critics Association (a.k.a. TCA) Winter Press Tour, Mark Pedowitz, who is the president of the network, announced that the legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith will be directing an episode of The Flash! He couldn’t give any plot details just yet, but that it will be an episode that will air in May so it could be either episode 21, 22 or 23 (the season finale!), if we predict it right.
Smith will also be hosting, along with DC Comics CCO Geoff Johns, a DC special titled “Dawn of the Justice League” on Tuesday, January 19th at 9:30 PM on The CW. You know what else happens that night? The Flash FINALLY comes back with new episodes at 8/7c.
“DC FILMS PRESENTS: DAWN OF THE JUSTICE LEAGUE invites viewers behind the scenes of the exciting new movies coming out of the DC Films universe, culminating in the thrilling world premiere of the all-new trailer for “Suicide Squad,” DC’s misfit crew of antiheroes forced into saving the world this summer, with director David Ayer. Hosted by filmmaker/writer/lifelong comics fan Kevin Smith, with special guest DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns, the special showcases the explosive landscape of DC’s greatest heroes, kicking off with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” in theatres this March, and with a sneak peek from the upcoming Wonder Woman feature film.
Get a look at never-before-seen footage, and see interviews with such stars as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, and directors Zack Snyder and Patty Jenkins – just a few of the creative forces behind the much-anticipated film franchise that will bring together the greatest collective of Super Heroes in the upcoming Justice League feature film. And because no Super Hero could make his or her mark without a truly formidable foe, the special also provides glimpses of DC’s most famous Super Villains.”
