Kevin Smith returns Captain Marvel’s cameo nod in new Jay and Silent Bob Reboot still

Kevin Smith has been gleefully updating fans on the filming of Jay and Silent Bob Reboot with a constant torrent of Instagram posts. He’s confirmed appearances from Method Man and Redman, Molly Shannon, Kate Micucci, WWE star Chris Jericho, Craig Robinson, Justin Long, Joe Manganiello, and many more familiar View Askew faces. In his latest post, the writer/director revealed another cameo, this one being a sweet reference to a reference from another geeky film, Captain Marvel.

Spoiler alert for those who haven’t seen Marvel’s latest superhero blockbuster, so turn back now.

Before he passed away, Stan Lee filmed a handful of cameos for forthcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe productions, including Captain Marvel. His appearance comes as Brie Larson’s Vers is hunting a Skrull on the LA Metro. She comes across someone seemingly hiding behind a big, red script, which she pulls down to reveal Stan the Man. The script he’s reading is for Smith’s Mallrats, the filmmaker’s 1995 feature in which Lee cameos as himself to give advice to Jason Lee’s comic obsessed Brodie Bruce. (Captain Marvel takes place in the summer of ’95.)

Smith was clearly touched by the nod, posting a tearful Insta acknowledgement. (This all despite the reality conundrums his inclusion in the Marvel Cinematic Universe presents, like how can a movie that references characters like Hulk and Spider-Man exist in a world where those characters are real, but haven’t even come on the scene yet? But I digress…) Then, today, he shared another shot from the set, repaying Marvel’s favor with a nod of his own. The still sees Lee’s Brodie picking up a fresh copy of the latest Captain Marvel #1, completing the referential circle in perfectly nerdy fashion.

See the post below. Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which finds the title characters reliving the plot of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back when they head to Hollywood to stop a reboot of Bluntman and Chronic, is expected as early as the end of the year.

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
