New Batman suit

Zack Snyder‘s reveal of Ben Affleck‘s new Batsuit was international news. Fans everywhere analyzed the photo like it was evidence in a murder trial, dissecting the costume’s texture, the size of specific elements, Affleck’s muscular structure, and more. Snyder specifically released the photo in black and white, leaving the color of the suit up for debate. Photoshoppers everywhere took the hint and colored-in the image giving fans a bunch of options of what the suit might really look like.

Some might remember, long before the world saw the suit, director, Batman fan and friend of Affleck Kevin Smith admitted he’d seen it. “You have not seen this costume in a movie, on film before,” Smith said at the time, “For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending.” Well, the photo Snyder released kind of looks like other suits, so Smith clarified his original statement. He said the suit he saw was the Frank Miller-designed, Dark Knight Returns combo of blue and grey. Read More »

WTF: Someone Is Crowdfunding a Kevin Smith Biopic

Shooting Clerks

Since the release of his first film Clerks, Kevin Smith has cultivated a group of incredibly loyal, vocal fans. It makes sense, considering Smith’s story: that of the everyman going after the American dream; it’s a rags-to-riches story fueled with big risks, pop culture references and dick jokes. This is a man we could all relate to and be happy for.

That fandom just took a whole new leap, though, as Christopher Downie and Brett Murray have begun to crowdsource a film on IndieGoGo called Shooting Clerks. It’ll be a biopic of Smith and the struggles he encountered making his first film. This is no unauthorized effort, however. Smith fully endorses the project and will even cameo. (If it gets made, of course.) This is crazy, awesome, weird, meta stuff. Check it out below. Read More »

Clerks II

“Nobody but me can make a CLERKS film,” said Kevin Smith in a Reddit AMA Thursday. “But ANYONE can make a Krampus picture. So before anyone else does, I figured it’s time to keep moving forward: we’re gonna shoot COMES THE KRAMPUS in April, before CLERKS III.”

Comes the Krampus is a holiday horror anthology Smith announced a few weeks back. Different directors will each oversee segments of the film. The plan originally was to make it after Smith did Clerks III. That’s now changed, however, and Clerks III is on hold until Comes the Krampus is made. Read More »
