Was Kevin Smith Hired To Write And Leak A Fake Batman v Superman Script?
is Kevin Smith who we thought he was? He's been "Nerd On The Front Lines" recently, not for his films as much as being the one "in-the-know" regarding major geek properties. He's been allowed inside the Star Wars: Episode VII studios, and he's especially been privy to information regarding Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice (thanks to his long friendship with Ben Affleck). But what if it's also because he's something of a spy?

Kevin Smith Left The Star Wars Episode 7 Set Crying Today
Apart from being a well-regarded director and obsessive hockey fan, Kevin Smith has turned into a sort of spokesman for the nerd/ geek community. He’s given access to long-term plans. His opinion is always asked on even the most minor superhero-related controversies, and he’s even invited on sets to view productions in progress.

Justin Long Gets Surgically Turned Into A Walrus In Disgusting First Look At Kevin Smith's Tusk
So exactly what the hell is going on in this picture? Well, in Tusk Justin Long stars as Wallace Bryton, a podcast host who goes missing after going to interview a mysterious seafarer named Mr. Howe (Michael Parks). As you can see, Long doesn't end up being the kind of kidnapping victim who is tied up and locked in a closet. Instead, it would seem that Mr. Howe is determined to transform Wallace into some kind of human walrus.

Kevin Smith Hints Batman V. Superman Is The Beginning Of A 'Massive' Justice League Story
We should probably take all of Kevin Smith comments about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and DC Comics movies with a grain of salt, but if he is right, what do you think of this idea? Is it what you expected? Do you think it will work?

It's the Mallrats cast hot tub photo you didn't realize you've been waiting for, and it's not even #TBT!

This great little piece of movie nostalgia comes from Kevin Smith himself.

Batman's New Suit Isn't Actually Black
While Zack Snyder did a great job revealing Ben Affleck's Batsuit in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman last week, it was missing one very important element: color. Because the picture was shot in black and white and in such a shadowy environment, it was hard to tell what kind of shading was going on in the design.

Justin Long Says That Johnny Depp Is In Kevin Smith's Tusk

Kevin Smith And SModCo Are Now Making A Holiday Horror Anthology
Since announcing at the end of 2012 that Clerks III was going to be his last film, Smith has almost completed a feature that wasn’t even fully conceived of at the time, with another more bizarre project lined up after that. Add another off-center concept to that pile.

Kevin Smith's Tusk Will Travel To Berlin With XYZ Films
Smith keeps pushing how dark Tusk is going to be, and I might finally be starting to believe him. For the record, a rep from XYZ called it “a memorable film that will leave audiences breathless.” I don’t think anyone has ever said quite that about one of Smith’s films before.

Rosario Dawson Returns For Clerks III
Speaking to Den of Geek’s U.S. affiliate, Dawson revealed that Kevin Smith has confirmed that she’s in the planned third Clerks, though she knows nothing else, particularly regarding a shooting date. Dawson played Becky in the second film, the love interest of put-upon Dante (Brian O’Halloran), nonetheless way out of his league.

Kevin Smith Can't Stop Describing Ben Affleck's Batman Suit
You know what would rock right now? If Snyder and Warner Bros. dropped a photo of the new Batman suit. We are talking an AWFUL lot about this suit, and then we have to come back down to Earth and realize that the movie has been pushed all the way back to 2016.

Kevin Smith Plans A Film That Pits Mankind Against A Rapturing Giant Jesus
Similar to Tusk, Smith says the idea behind the story started on a Smodcast episode, and the plot “concerns mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus - which means the budget has to be LOW, because NOBODY'S gonna wanna make that movie.”

Why Quentin Tarantino Said No To Kevin Smith's Tusk
With such a short gestation period – around four months from its initial SModcast conversation to a film soon to be in production – there are a lot of questions left to be answered where this movie in concerned, and Smith wrote a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter, getting some of those pesky details out of the way, such as the truth behind how he approached Quentin Tarantino for a role and why the film is seeing yet another delay in production.

Kevin Smith's Surreal Walrus Horror Tusk Lands Justin Long And Michael Parks
So with Parks in mind, Smith “wrote the script around him, so it’s nothing but Michael Parks dialogue porn. Justin Long is the guy in the walrus suit. I needed a guy who has expressive eyes because once you’re in that suit, you’re covered.”

Joss Whedon And Former Batmen Defend Ben Affleck As Batman
First up is Joss Whedon, who knows a thing or two about superheroes having directed the most successful comic book movie of all time. I have a feeling Whedon’s opinion is powerful enough to get at least 5% of people flipping their opinions on Affleck’s involvement. Geek culture can be pretty fickle at times.

Should Kevin Smith Work With Ben Affleck On Batman?
Since Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman last Thursday, we've been talking about it… a lot. But before we leave the topic behind and go back to speculating about the rest of the superhero universe, we had to deal with the wild suggestion that Sean made to the entire staff a few days back.

Short Story Saturday: And Affleck Wept
He turned his back on the wind as it tousled his hair, picked up his phone and dialed a number he’d almost forgotten. It was a number he thought he’d never dial again but, just now, it was the phone number of the only person in the world who could possibly understand.It rang only once before he heard a raspy, smoker’s cough and then, “hello?” "Hi Kevin, it's Ben,” he said.
