SUPERGIRL: Kevin Smith Wants To Direct A "Guardian-Centric" Episode And He Already Has An Idea For The Story

The most recent episode of Supergirl saw the Girl of Steel share a large portion of the spotlight with Jimmy Olsen, and now Kevin Smith is interested in directing an episode focused on the hero Guardian.

When it was first revealed that Mehcad Brooks’ Jimmy Olsen was going to be suiting up as Guardian on Supergirl, not all fans were on board, especially as it’s quite the departure from the Jimmy seen in the comic books.

Yet, the show has managed to win some over with their take on Superman’s pal, including director and longtime comic book fan Kevin Smith. Not only is the director a fan of the CW’s take on the character, but as he revealed on Twitter he has recently become interested in directing an episode focused on the hero, and he is already has an "idea for a wicked story."

According to Smith’s tweet, this inspiration came after watching the most recent episode of Supergirl, which saw Olsen share much of the episode’s focus as he dealt with the weight of being a black superhero and the possibility of revealing his identity.




While Smith’s comments shouldn’t be taken as a sign that he will direct an episode centered around Guardian, given his past work on the show and on The Flash, it is very strong possibility.

So, what do you folks think of a Guardian-centric episode directed by Kevin Smith? Is it something you would be interested in?
