8) Another Kevin Smith Episode
One of the highlights of The Flash season 2 was ‘The Runaway Dinosaur’, a very funny and touching episode directed by Kevin Smith. Fans will be pleased to learn, then, that the Clerks helmer is returning to direct a new episode this year. It is pencilled in as episode 7 and will also be written by ‘The Runaway Dinosaur’ (and X-Men: First Class and Thor) scribe Zack Stentz.
Though he hasn’t yet achieved his ambition to write an episode of Arrow, Smith will also direct a Supergirl episode too. That one is titled ‘Supergirl Lives’, as a nod to his unmade Superman film Superman Lives.
