The Flash is basically mixing issues up in Season four, and apparently revealing villains proper off the bat and introducing new heroes is working out for them, as a result of the writers supposedly have already got Season 5’s storyline within the works. That is what comedian geek and occasional Flash director Kevin Smith is saying, anyway, and he has a fairly dependable supply:
We might’ve assumed Kevin Smith was tight sufficient with The Flash‘s co-creator Andrew Kreisberg to listen to this info, contemplating his previous directing efforts on the present, however to truly tweet it out should imply these guys each be ok with revealing Season 5 is a factor that is occurring. (No less than unofficially, since The CW nonetheless hasn’t put in that prolonged renewal.) So far as why Smith has to dwell one other 12 months to see (or be part of) what unfolds in Season 5 of the collection, we will solely speculate. (Past simply, you already know, wanting to not die within the meantime.) What received Kevin Smith so jazzed about The Flash that he would tweet so enthusiastically about subsequent season whereas Season four continues to be in its early levels?
A storyline that features references to main comedian e-book lore is a protected wager, as Kevin Smith is all the time a fan of referencing previous materials at any time when he is concerned in an Arrow-verse present. It is also doable Kevin Smith requested Andrew Kreisberg the place Season four is headed, which result in him telling Smith that The Thinker will probably stay Barry’s foe going into Season 5. If not, for what different causes would the 2 talk about Season 5 of The Flash with so little of Season four out of the way in which?
The apparent reply would appear to be that it was a enterprise lunch, and Kevin Smith was particularly with Andrew Kreisberg to debate returning to The Flash to direct an episode of Season 5 or a later episode of Season four. If that is the case, this may be Smith’s first time again within the director’s chair for the collection since Season three’s “Killer Frost” episode, which noticed the beginning of Caitlin Snow’s troubles along with her meta alter ego. If Smith was requested something whereas he realized in regards to the story behind Season 5, we will solely assume from his tweet that he agreed to no matter was requested of him, which might imply Season 5’s planning levels are already off to an ideal begin!
As Kevin Smith tweets about Season 5, The Flash followers should patiently wade by way of the remainder of Season four, which airs Tuesday nights on The CW at eight p.m. ET.
