Kevin Smith Teases Trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot at SDCC 2019

Marvel fans may be waiting for the big Hall H panel coming to SDCC 2019, but if they stick around, they can catch a panel led by director Kevin Smith for his reboot for Jay and Silent Bob.

Smith himself had announced the panel on his Instagram, and also gives us this teaser poster:

This weekend at @comic_con, we’ll be debuting the @jayandsilentbob Reboot trailer during my Saturday night Hall H panel (right after the @marvelstudios panel)! It’ll go out to the world soon after, so folks are going to see much more of the cast, plot and in-movie artwork. So in anticipation, I’ll be sharing images from #jayandsilentbobreboot that I haven’t made public yet. Like this faux movie artwork upon which our plot turns. In the new adventure, #jayandsilentbob find out the old #bluntmanandchronic movie that was based on them is getting a Reboot – so they go back to Hollywood to stop it all over again! But as with any Reboot, the source material has been modernized – so the rebooted Bluntman movie (the reboot of the movie that starred @biggsjason and @vanderjames) now features a female Chronic! I won’t spoil who plays the new Bluntman and Chronic (it’s in the trailer), so I’ll take some guesses instead: Who’s Behind the Masks? When the trailer drops this weekend, you’ll get to see if you were right. But if you’re at Saturday night’s “Kevin Smith Reboots Hall H” panel, you’ll not only see the Reboot trailer: I’m gonna show you the #Bluntman movie-in-a-movie scene too! I can’t wait to start sharing this epic! It’s my all-time favorite of all my flicks and also a meta scrapbook of my entire career (and life) that sequelizes all the #viewaskew movies in one sprawling story! (NOTE: Reboot comes out in the Fall. The B&C poster says “Summer” because that’s when it comes out in the #viewaskewniverse.)

“In the new adventure, #jayandsilentbob find out the old #bluntmanandchronic movie that was based on them is getting a Reboot – so they go back to Hollywood to stop it all over again!

What’s interesting is, it looks like this film is going to comment on the modern climate of superhero movies. You can even see that with the genderbent version of Chronic, it kind of looks like Captain Marvel. Earlier this year, Smith got emotional after he discovered that Captain Marvel had referenced his movie Mallrats. It looks like he’s going to be returning the favor with this movie.

Smith is also teasing who could be under the mask when it comes to this new Bluntman, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be Thor actor Chris Hemsworth. I mean, why else would you have Hemsworth in your film if he’s not playing a hunky superhero? Of course, I could be wrong, but I think it would be the perfect cameo.

Besides Hemsworth, the movie also has a lot of other celebs in the cast including Joe Manganiello, Rosario Dawson, Justin Long, Grant Gustin, and Kate Micucci.

We don’t have a release date for the Jay and Silent Bob reboot yet, but I have a feeling that it could either come out later this year or maybe sometime early 2020.
