With the Kevin Smith-directed Season 2 episode of The Flash being one of the better episodes of the season, Smith is being brought back for Season 3.

Smith took to his Instagram account to offer a couple of possible teases for his The Flash Season 3 episode which includes mention of the DC Comics character Gentleman Ghost. Smith also says The Flash is still his favorite series. 

"Meanwhile, in the #Vangroovy production headquarters of @cwtheflash, a villain hides like a coward from his directorial responsibilities! I'm back at #TheFlash prepping my ep! Just had an FX budget meeting and now headed out to scout some locations. We've got lots more action sequences and fights to shoot in this ep so I'll likely be hiding like I am in this pic the whole time I'm here, terrified of improving as a visual storyteller. Or maybe, just maybe, I'll try to shoot the shit out of it instead - especially because the episode contains a lot of "First" moments and super heroic sparring spectacle. And having already seen the first and second episodes of Season 3, I know the bar is set very high (those eps are a stellar start to this new year). But this is my favorite show - so the #Flash deserves no less than my best.

I'm trying to convince the fun folks on @cwtheflash to use this low budget version of #GentlemanGhost as the main villain in season 3. He's old school @dccomics but even still, everyone seems spooked by the idea...

Kevin Smith also offered that he's seen the first two episodes of The Flash Season 3, which deals with the Flashpoint event:

They’re shooting episode 6 right now, so I’ve seen episode 1 and 2 cut together. Phenomenal. Phenomenal. The bar is high, so I’m kind of worried about that. 

The Flash Season 3 premieres Tuesday, October 4th at 8pm ET on The CW starring Grant Gustin. Kevin Smith is also directing an episode of Supergirl.
