Ben Affleck has labored with Kevin Smith quite a few occasions — Mallrats, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back — however not since 2006’s Clerks II. In truth, the ex-pals haven’t spoken to one another in years. The fractured relationship is because of “one of us [having] a big mouth and [telling] too many candid stories that sometimes weren’t his to tell,” Smith defined, “and the other one is Ben.” The Jay and Silent Reboot author and director (who defended Affleck’s “unfairly maligned” Batman) additionally admitted that “I don’t think I pop up on his radar nearly as much he pops up on my radar. But I try honestly [to] limit the amount that I do talk about him… I know it always brings him grief or heartache in some way.”
Maybe the therapeutic has begun?
While selling Triple Frontier, his Netflix film with Oscar Isaac, Jax Teller, and the Red Viper, Affleck was requested whether or not his characters from Mallrats (Shannon Hamilton) or Chasing Amy (Holden McNeil) will present up in Reboot. “Your guess is a good as mine. I haven’t been asked to make an appearance, but you never know, there’s still time. We’ll see,” he replied. “I think if it was up to me, I would rather do Holden than Shannon, but I would defer to Kevin.”
It’s by no means too late to reboot a friendship. Feel free to make use of that as a tagline, Kevin Smith. Anyway, time will inform whether or not Affleck can match a Reboot cameo into his packed-but-not-packed-with-Batman-movies schedule, however one other superhero might be within the movie. Following the shock Mallrats shout-out in Captain Marvel, Smith is re-paying a favor to the House That Stan Lee Built.
