It looks like Kevin Smith wants another bite of the glorious superhero pie that's got Hollywood hooked at the moment. The filmmaker/comic book fan recently directed an episode of "The Flash" - which was quite well received. So much so that Smith expressed a desire to write and direct something for "Arrow" as well.
Now, in a recent interview with IGN, Smith indicated that he would love to direct an episode of "Daredevil."
"I told [Marvel chief creative officer] Joe Quesada - we worked on Daredevil together back in the day, I wrote it, he drew it - I said, 'Dude, I want to direct Daredevil, man. That'd be wild to be able to do it in real-life - let's co-direct it, that'd be cool, just like we did the book. We could co-direct an episode and then, like, take the passion from the page to the screen.'"
Smith added that he's very keen to make the "Daredevil" thing happen. "Every time I talk to Quesada or [Executive Vice President of Marvel Television] Jeph Loeb, I'm like, 'Hey! When are you going back down to the cameras?'"
Well, it remains to be seen if Smith gets a shot at "Daredevil," as a third season for the show is yet to be announced. However, he seems equally excited about the prospect of directing an episode for "The Defenders" which is confirmed to release and stream on Netflix.
"You know, they're gearing up now for The Defenders," he said. "If I can get a piece of that Defenders mini-series holy s**t, could you imagine, dude? Because then you're working with multiple suits at once, that'd be phenomenal. Just doing a mini Avengers - even one episode of that run of Defenders is like, 'oh, I get to exercise any interest I had in Avengers but doing it on a scale where nobody's betting $200 million on the guy that made f**kin' Yoga Hosers."
