Kevin Smith Wants To Bring Onomatopoeia To Arrow

onomatopoeiaRecently I did a write up of what I'd like to see in Arrow season five and one of the things on the list was the villain Onomatopoeia. Turns out I'm not the only one. The creator of the villain and former Green Arrow comic writer Kevin Smith told Variety that he would like to write an episode or two of Arrow and introduce his quirky killer.

I would love to jump in for a one or two episode arc just to bring that Onomatopoeia character to life. That would be so badass – I created this character in the comics and then to do a live-action version of it that fit into their universe, fit into the run of their show? That would be exciting to me. That's the one I can get my head around writing, but 'Flash,' whenever they bring me back, I think I prefer somebody else doing it. I heard rumor that when I go back, I think Zack [Stentz] might be writing my script again, which would be amazing – we'd be keeping the home team together, so that'd be cool.

Smith directed last night's episode of The Flash and is slated to return to the director's chair for the series in season three but would prefer if someone else wrote the scripts there. But he would step up to the keyboard for the Emerald Archer.
