Arrow Is Too Dark For Kevin Smith To Direct

According to Marc Guggenheim, that is.

Kevin Smith is mostly known for his film work, but he's spent the last few years working on the small screen directing episode of The Flash and Supergirl. He gave an interview with Screen Rant recently where he had a conversation with Marc Guggenheim about potentially directing an episode of Arrow.

I talked to him once after a panel at the Paley Center, I was the moderator for the Paley Center CW panel at the Hollywood and Highland complex. And so afterwards, I was talking to Marc, and I was like, "hey man, fans keep saying they want me to direct an episode of [Arrow], I would love that, I wrote Green Arrow." He knows that. And he goes, "yeah, you know, Arrow is very dark. Legends [of Tomorrow] would be good for you." [laughs] So, I don't think they're ever gonna let me near Arrow, which is totally fine.

Smith's comedic background is certainly more suited to a show such as Legends of Tomorrow, but as of late, he's been trying his hand at darker movies like Red State, so maybe an episode of Arrow could be in his quiver.
