Jay & Silent Bob Reboot will feature a shout out to Captain Marvel.
Kevin Smith got emotional after the Stan Lee cameo in Captain Marvel was an acknowledgement to Mallrats, Smith’s 1995 film in which Lee had a fairly significant role. Now, Mallrats star Jason Lee is going to make a Captain Marvel reference in the forthcoming Jay & Silent Bob Reboot.
Smith announced the shout out — which will take place at Brodie’s Secret Stash, the comic shop owned by Lee’s character in Reboot — on Twitter, sharing a look at the scene. In the photo Smith shared, Lee is putting an issue of Captain Marvel#1, featuring a cover by Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts, on the wall in his comic shop.
Written and directed by Kevin Smith, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot stars Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Shannon Elizabeth, Jason Lee, Donnell Rawlings and more. The film is expected to hit theaters later this year.
