Kevin Smith Returning to Direct Another Season Two Episode
Supergirl isn’t planning on letting Kevin Smith go just yet. After directing the midseason premiere episode ‘Supergirl Lives’, the fan-favorite director will return to helm another episode in the The CW hit series in an untitled 17th installment for the second season.
Kevin Smith shared the news with ComicBook.com that he would be directing another episode of Supergirl this season. However, he is on a limited schedule, as he will be directing the future episode this month after coming back from the Sundance Film Festival. “Monday, the episode of Supergirl that I directed airs, which is thrilling,” Smith said. “I got to Sundance tomorrow and I’m up there for IMDb all week, come home Tuesday, then a few days after that, I go up to Vancouver again to direct another episode of Supergirl.”
Smith mentioned that halfway through filming the episode, the producers got a feel for his schedule. They decided to give him another opportunity to direct another hour of Supergirl with episode 17, which he said was nice of them to notice his work and that they loved seeing what he can do on the show. “I fell in love with everybody up there, so it was easy to say ‘yeah,'” Smith said. The director also added:
It takes something special to make you put aside your own shit 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 shit 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’s great to see that The CW is appreciating Kevin Smith’s talents as a director and a DC Comics fanatic. Are you looking forward to seeing another episode of Supergirl by Smith?
