Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is shaping up to be quite the comic book movie. Kevin Smith has just revealed that the reboot contains three different Batman actors, which is a pretty amazing feat. Smith is taking on the current entertainment business climate of the reboots, remakes, and sequels with his clever twist. The director recently unveiled the poster for the highly anticipated movie featuring wildly different takes on Bluntman and Chronic. The gritty poster even swaps Chronic out for a female actress this time around.
Kevin Smith is doing his best to promote Jay & Silent Bob Reboot without giving anything away. However, he did say there are, "three different Batmans in the movie, which is kind of amazing." When asked if he could reveal who they were, Smith replied with a laugh, "No, no, I can't." There's a lot of possibilities here, but the main guess has to go to Ben Affleck. Smith and the former Batman actor have been working together for over two decades. With that being said, they did reportedly have a recent falling out, which may have been mended by now.
Other Batman guesses include Kevin Conroy, Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Val Kilmer, and Christian Bale. It's even possible that Kevin Smith was able to pull in Robert Pattinson for Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. Whatever the case may be, it sounds like the movie is going to be perfect for fans of Smith and comic book movies. When talking about the movie, Smith says it, "Pokes fun at the business. Pokes fun at remakes sequels and reboots while being all three of them at the same time."
Fans have been waiting a long time to see Jay & Silent Bob Reboot make it to the big screen. It's been an uphill battle for Kevin Smith, but he seems to be really satisfied with what he was able to pull off. While Smith can't talk about the Batman actors in the movie, he did talk about what it was like working with Thor actor Chris Hemsworth. He had this to say.
"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."
Jay & Silent Bob Reboot will be introduced at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. Smith will be sharing some of his secrets and unveiling even more cameos from the movie that he hasn't shown off on social media. The director kept a pretty extensive social media journal while shooting Reboot in New Orleans earlier this year. Jay & Silent Bob Reboot hits theaters sometime this year, so hopefully Smith announces a release date too. The interview with Kevin Smith was originally conducted by Entertainment Weekly.
