Kevin Smith to Direct Supergirl Episode 2×17

Next week is the midseason premiere of Supergirl, as well as the episode that famed nerd director Kevin Smith helmed as well. If you are a big Kevin Smith fan, you should be happy to know that he is going to be directing another episode this season. It is going to be the yet to be titled episode 17 of the season. I’ll even assume it hasn’t even been written yet. Smith stated that while filming ‘Supergirl Lives’ producers came up to him wondering if he wanted to film another episode and he said it was sweet and he would love to. Smith had this to say about the whole experience.

“I fell in love with everybody up there, so it was easy to say ‘yeah,'” Smith said. “It takes something special to make you put aside your own s*** when you’re creative. When you have the ability to make the stories you want to make, it’s fun to watch other people’s stories, it’s just way more fun to make your own. So whenever you put your s*** aside, it has to be for something worthwhile. Working on Supergirl is like a month of your life, but I’d give it up in a heartbeat because the last experience I had was so rewarding and I was so happy with what we did. I like all the people up there, and I believe in the show in a big, bad way. It’s incredibly warm. It’s just well-made entertainment, and it’s got something to it. It’s a little nourishing, it’s not just fast food. There’s always some heart to it.”

It is very clear from the quote above that Smith loves this show, experience, and directing as a whole. He also stated that while he did enjoy Supergirl last season on CBS, he said that they’ve really stepped up this season while on the CW. I very much agree. I am very excited for Smith’s upcoming episode as well as the next one he’s doing. I thought he did a good job on the Flash with ‘Runaway Dinosaur’ and ‘Killer Frost’, so I am very hopeful for this episode.
