JJ Abrams Superman with Michael B Jordan So Kevin Smith reacts when he hears the news from us

J.J. Abrams’ “Superman” with Michael B. Jordan: So Kevin Smith reacts when he hears the news from us

Kevin Smith is one of the largest “Superman” fans at all – and the script for the never-realized “Superman Lives” with Nicolas Cage, he has also written. Still, he knew nothing of the new “Superman” project until we tell him about it …

Cult filmmaker Kevin Smith ( “Clerks,” “Dogma”) is the most famous pop culture nerd on the planet – and currently he is touring America and the rest of the world to present to his new film “Jay And Silent Bob Reboot”. We have Kevin Smith therefore met in London for an interview – and since it is well known what a huge fan of “Superman” He, of course we have the advantage of the situation used to it possible also for his opinion on the news of a new “Superman” movie to question.

Finally, less than 24 hours earlier came out that Warner Bros. apparently with J.J. Abrams worked as a producer and director on a new “Superman” with Michael B. Jordan in the lead role.

But had to our surprise Kevin Smith, who not only a fixed panel on the San Diego Comic Con keeps, but has also directed four episodes of “Super Girl” in the past two years, yet no opinion on the subject – because he in Promo -Stress even nothing at all had heard of the message:

FILM STARTS: Great news yesterday …

Kevin Smith: Why? What happened then?

Kevin Smith:

FILM STARTS: Warner Bros. apparently planning a new “Superman” movie – with J.J. Abrams as director and Michael B. Jordan in the lead role …

Kevin Smith (suddenly very loud): That’s what happened yesterday?

Kevin Smith (suddenly very loud):

FILM STARTS: Yes. I wanted you actually ask about the project in your opinion. But apparently the news is not yet arrived with you …

Kevin Smith: Oh, my God, will you kidding me? I know that J GOMOVIES.J. a deal with Warner Bros. and will work for “Star Wars 9” primarily there … At last they make the things that we have always dreamed of. Finally they use the public as a focus group. Can you remember that there was such a rumor even a few years ago – not with J.J., but with Michael B. Jordan as Superman.

Kevin Smith:

One would have imagined great – but the studio people have then but politely declined. Now they do such things last. I can not wait any longer. That just does so much sense. J.J. is easily one of smartesten filmmakers in the business – that is fan service at the highest level. In the “Watchmen” series they have the Superman metaphor precisely really taken to the extreme – now it will be exciting to see what J.J. thus makes.

(In a brief pause, the message seems slowly to really arrive.)

WOW, that’s great. And they gave the yesterday?

FILM STARTS: Yes. While it is still a rumor, but with a very high probability that it is true. Yesterday it was really reading everywhere …

Kevin Smith: That is phenomenal. That’s incredible. When the deal by J.J. signed with Warner Bros., there was never the official announcement that he is there now worry about the comic book movies. Instead, it was just that he gets there a fat deal. But it’s obvious that if someone like J.J. goes to a club, where there are a lot of brands with which they did not always start right, it is of course the man who was so selecting a project. It just makes sense.

Kevin Smith:

The rest of the interview follows later

The full and surprisingly open interview with Kevin Smith appears next year in time for the German release of “Jay And Silent Bob Reboot” with us – but here you can watch the match like ever the trailer for the next part of the so-called View Askewniverse saga View (among the already all sorts of other more or less interconnected Kevin Smith films like “dogma” and the two “Clerks” parts):
