The Flash Season 2 has seemed to outpace and outdo Season 1 in many ways, but for many fans, it is not just the explosion of new DC Comics characters. Kevin Smith recently stepped in to direct an episode of The Flash Season 2, and apparently it went quite well. The Flash himself, Grant Gustin, really enjoyed Kevin Smith’s directorial debut on the show. According to Comicbook, Gustin saw it as a pleasure.
“It’s been such a pleasure. We need to lock you into multiple episodes for season 3!”
Although the plot and pretty much everything else is unknown about Smith’s episode, it is known that it will be the 21st episode of Season 2. It is unclear how well Kevin Smith did, as far as fans are concerned, but they will find out soon enough. Smith could be back for more of The Flash, but that likely will also depend on his schedule. Perhaps for a crossover episode of The Flash? The Flash/Supergirl crossover is coming up soon enough. The Flash has crossed over with Arrow more than once, but Grant Gustin would love to see more crossovers. In fact, he hopes they all crossover.

“Hopefully close enough that they’ll need a rematch next season, maybe with Green Arrow and the Legends as an audience. The whole point of us doing this crossover is setting up the fact that maybe next year we can cross over all of them.”
It has been stated enough times that with Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and now potentially with Supergirl, the showrunners are building a DC Comics TV universe, so it will certainly be interesting to see how far it stretches.
Speaking of new additions to the The Flash and other parts of the DC Comics TV universe, as reported by the Inquisitr last week, a new speedster is headed to Central City. Trajectory’s trajectory is set for Star City, but little is known beyond that. Flash producer Todd Helbing illuminates fans with a little sneak peak.
“We get to see our group go out and be 25-year-olds and have fun for a change. So they all go out to a club. There is a new meta-human that shows up, who is a speedster. And it’s our first female speedster. Her name is Trajectory. She is going a lot faster than Barry.”
Unfortunately, based on the sneak peek, both the video and Helbing’s description, it doesn’t explain much about Trajectory’s modus operandi. Flash producer Aaron Helbing added that fans should “would not miss the last five minutes.” The Flash Season 2 episode “Trajectory” will air Tuesday at 8 p.m.
There is another speedster being adapted, but this time for the big screen. The Flash will soon have his own film and also will appear in Batman v Superman. However, the Flash appearing that film will not be Grant Gustin, CW’s The Flash, but a new, freshly-picked actor. This has caused a little bit of a rift between fans, but director Zack Snyder said Gustin’s interpretation just “wasn’t a good fit.”
“I just don’t think (Gustin) was a good fit,” Snyder said. “I’m very strict with this universe and I just don’t see a version where…that (tone is) not our world. Even if Grant Gustin is my favorite guy in the world and he’s very good, we made a commitment to the multiverse (idea), so it’s just not a thing that’s possible.”
Snyder’s response certainly won’t quell some fans rage or distaste for multiple actors playing The Flash, but he makes a point that at least some will accept and probably isn’t the worst.
