This month, Kevin Smith has been busy shooting Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The film will act as a reboot/remake/sequel to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, but as we’ve seen in various set photo revelations and production diaries, this is also a way for Kevin Smith to revisit his old movies and friends from the View Askewniverse (including Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, and Clerks II). But there’s been one face from Kevin Smith’s that everyone has assumed wouldn’t return.
Kevin Smith used to be great friends with Ben Affleck. The director even helped boost Affleck’s career as a leading man thanks to Chasing Amy. However, the last time they worked together was Clerks II in 2006, and over the years, Smith has made it clear that he and Affleck really weren’t friends anymore. However, it sounds like Affleck is open to burying the hatchet if there’s an opportunity. The only problem is it might be too late. Read More »
Jay and Silent Reboot is shaping up to be a reunion of almost everyone that Kevin Smith has ever worked with.

But there is one surprise that comes in the form of WWE wrestler Chris Jericho being part of the cast.
Find out what Kevin Smith had to say about these two joining the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot cast below. Read More »
In Kevin Smith‘s breakout debut film Clerks, which launched an interconnected series of movies set in the “View Askewniverse,” one of the main characters worked at a video rental store. The movie was set in the mid-1990s, so that occupation made sense.
Now, 25 years later, Smith is filming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which is also set in that cinematic world – but today, video rental stores are no more. In the caption of a new set photo, Smith explains how he convinced Redbox to come in as a replacement and teases how his new movie features “one of the funniest sequences [he’s] ever shot.”

Marvel Studios surprised us all during the Television Critics Association panels by revealing an exciting new partnership with Hulu for four new animated series based on comic books. MODOK, Tigra & Dazzler, Hit-Monkey and Howard the Duck are all getting their own animated shows before joining forces with each other for a crossover series called The Offenders. That’s certainly one way for Marvel to kickstart their streaming projects again after Netflix canceled all of the shows that formed The Defenders.
Kevin Smith is the one tasked with bringing the hilariously raunchy space-hopping mallard Howard the Duck to life in animated form. You might be worried that his animated experience only extends to a short-lived Clerks animated series, but thankfully, he’s working with Aqua Teen Hunger Force‘s Dave Willis to what promises to be a wacky sci-fi comic book comedy. Now Smith has revealed which comics are influencing their Howard the Duck animated series, and he’s also seen footage from MODOK and Hit-Monkey, both of which sound extremely promising.
