When asked to describe the newly-unveiled Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, Kevin Smith summed it up perfectly: “it’s a movie which makes fun of sequels and remakes and reboots while being all three at the same time.” Where do we sign up?
Hot off this morning’s decidedly NSFW trailer and we have official confirmation that the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot features not one, not two, but three
Batmen Batmans. You can count Ben Affleck among that exclusive club, though Kevin Smith refused to divulge further details of those other two Caped Crusaders.
Chances are the writer-director-star has made room in his ranks for Diedrich Bader, who voiced Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, while Kevin Conroy seems like another safe bet, given he previously worked with Kevin Smith on Yoga Hosers. And let’s face it: barring some unforeseen twist, we can effectively rule out Robert Pattinson, who has yet to don the cape and cowl for Warner Bros.
Among the star-studded cast for the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot are Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Craig Robinson, Joe Manganiello, Val Kilmer, Melissa Benoist and Chris Hemsworth of Avengers: Endgame, who seemingly took some time out during his busy MCU schedule to spend a day filming alongside Smith and Jason Mewes (Jay), much to the delight of everyone involved.
Chris Hemsworth made time during Avengers: Endgame press to come out and shoot with us for a day. It was pretty amazing. I mean, the dude’s legit funny. So, we’ve got an Avenger in the movie! It’s a comic book-friendly cast, that’s for sure.
Any film that takes advantage of Chris Hemsworth’s comedic chops (see: Thor: Ragnarok, Ghostbusters, and yes, even Men In Black: International) is most definitely worth the price of admission. And while it’s unlikely to score a wide release, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will begin making its way into select theaters come October.
