Jay & Silent Bob Reboot Will Feature a Stan Lee Tribute
Prepare some fabrics because Kevin Smith will include a tribute to the late Stan Lee in his next film Jay and Silent Bob Reboot . This will serve Smith's return to his own film universe, View Askewniverse, which debuted with his first film Clerks in the 1990s, long before the Marvel Film Universe became infuriated with interconnectedness. Smith has not been immersed in this well for more than a decade, which makes him special for his fans. We now know that it will be special for Marvel fans as well.
Tragically, Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee died last year. Kevin Smith and himself had worked together several times over the years, with Lee appearing in Mallrats . This particular role was immortalized via Lee's cameo in Captain Marvel . Beyond their professional relationship, both had developed a kind of friendship over the years and Smith was a fan of comics ever since. So, Lee counted a lot for him. To the question of whether the filmmaker was considering whether to include a tribute before or after the credit to the icon in his next film on Twitter, Smith had this to say.
"Believe me, true believer … #JayAndSilentBobReboot"
This response was referring to one of Stan Lee's lines taken from Mallrats . Kevin Smith obviously does not want to spoil anything, but he makes it very clear that the man will receive the recognition he deserves in Jay & Silent Bob Reboot . It's worth noting that it will not be Marvel's only connection in the movie, as it had already been revealed that Thor's actor, Chris Hemsworth, would make an appearance appeared.
Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith lead the cast, returning to the roles of Jay and Silent Bob, respectively. The cast also includes a large number of favorites such as Jason Lee, Brian O Halloran, Elizabeth Shannon, Diedrich Bader, Rosario Dawson and more. New additions include Method Man, Red Man, Molly Shannon, Kate Micucci and Chris Jericho. Smith promised that there would be a lot of celebrity cameos, but he's trying to keep at least a few under the hood for now. It would not be surprising to see a trailer sooner than others, and we saw some famous faces appear.

This is Kevin Smith's first movie since his heart attack almost fatal. The filmmaker did not waste time coming back as a result of his major health problem. While some specific details of the plot are kept under lock and key, the past, Smith joked that it's the same movie as Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, which is a commentary on the merry nature reboot of Hollywood. The release date has not yet been set, but production was completed in March and Smith said he expects it to be out in the fall. Be sure to check Kevin Smith's original Twitter account below.
