Why Kevin Smith Directing Flash is Great and Isaiah Mullins is an Idiot.

Editors Note: This post is inspired by our community contributor chat where Isaiah Mullins insists that Kevin Smith directing The Flash isn’t even kinda cool. – MM

In case you’re living under a rock, blissfully ignorant or Isaiah Mullins here’s a few reasons why you should be excited that Kevin Smith is directing an upcoming episode of CW’s Flash.

He’s Kevin Smith dummies!! Forget the next few reasons, just his movies alone should prove his worth for directing something like this and the love he’d put into it. Love is gramma’s secret recipe and gramma bakes some awesome fucking cookies. If you’ve seen his movies then you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for?

Let’s look beyond his screen work. How are we even having this conversation? According to a Ray Kurzweil book I read before this internet thing fastened itself to my brain, the exception proves the rule and if our own not-so-round geek, Isaiah, is the exception then I guess there’s a rule. So here we are. Kevin Smith has written numerous full runs for both DC and Marvel; Batman, Daredevil, Green Arrow, Spiderman, just to name a few. All that and he wrote the comic book extensions of his own properties. He didn’t just write them but he rocked them. The critics, who you probably don’t care about, all shouted praise for his runs with our favorite heroes. In fact, he’s even been hailed as the one who brought back Green Arrow.

CW’s Flash is an offshoot of their Arrow series and here comes the man with a proven love of comics who brought some life back into it all. How’s that not exciting? How are you not standing on you chair wearing nothing but a pair of tube socks and shouting out with GLEEEEEE? I think we need to keep things simple and face the facts, folks. If Kevin Smith directing an episode of The Flash doesn’t at least inspire a “Hey, that’s pretty cool,” from you then you’re probably just another fanboy and your opinion really doesn’t count.

Personally, I’ve never even seen the series and I’m excited. Especially since I just saw bits of the pilot the other day and thought it looked cool enough to give a shot. This will be my 3rd ever CW show… wish me luck.

So that’s all I have to say. Kevin Smith is an excellent if not obvious choice for this show. Let us know the consensus in the comments, is Isaiah an idiot or is Isaiah an idiot? I’ll be waiting for his return fire in the meantime.
