'Mallrats 2' Brings Back Jeremy London and Ethan Suplee

40 minutes ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past seven days, director Kevin Smith has had a number of his Mallrats stars confirmed to return in Mallrats 2. The filmmaker revealed on his Twitter page that the next two additions are Jeremy London and Ethan Suplee, reprising their roles as T.S. Quint and William, respectively. They join the filmmaker himself, returning as Silent Bob, Jason Mewes (Jay), Jason Lee (Brody), Stan Lee (Himself), Michael Rooker (Mr. Svenning) and Shannen Doherty (Rene). At this rate, the filmmaker could have his entire cast lined up by next week.

The director mentioned that, after these latest casting additions, he now has "8 down, 4 to go." It is believed that Kevin Smith is referring to Mallrats stars Claire Forlani (Brandi Svenning), Joey Lauren Adams (Gwen), Ben Affleck (Shannon) and Ren&#233e Humphrey (Trish). Given how busy Ben Affleck's schedule is, it isn't known if he would come back for the sequel, »

Jason Lee, Shannen Doherty And More Back For Mallrats 2

25 March 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kevin Smith’s Mallrats 2 is proliferating the filmmaker’s social media streams in the best way possible. The writer-director last week confirmed that he had started developing a sequel to his 1995 cult classic and has now begun rounding up his Mallrats alumni.

In the days that have followed, a number of images featuring stars of the flick have cropped up on Smith’s Twitter and Instagram. Whether they are holding up two fingers or referencing a specific – ahem, chocolate-covered pretzel anyone? – scene, the fact of that matter is clear: the gang is getting back together. Jason Lee is now officially back as Brodie, along with Shannen Doherty who played his long-suffering girlfriend, Renee.

“Would You like a chocolate covered pretzel?” Brodie Is Back! JasonLee’s going to the Mall, ya’ll! 6 more to go! #MR2

Ethan Suplee confirmed for Mallrats 2

25 March 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Returning to Mallrats 2 is our young man with sailboat issues.

Today Kevin Smith posted on Twitter and Facebook that the visually challenged Mallrat William (Ethan Suplee) is also now back in the gang with Mallrats 2.  Kevin Smith has already confirmed that a number of original cast members are returning including Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty, as well as Michael Rooker, Stan Lee and Jason Mewes . Will we get Jeremy London or Ben Affleck tomorrow?

Here’s Kevin Smith’s Tweet :-

Mallrats was originally released in 1995. Considered a flop at the cinema,it rapidly gained a huge cult following (I myself have a copy that is watched yearly).  Mallrats 2 is expected to start filming next year, while Kevin Smith is currently also in the process of pre-production on Clerks III.

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn’t Know About X-Men

25 March 2015 5:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Created in 1963 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the X-Men are one of the most iconic and instantly recognisable superhero teams of all-time. A group of misfits hated and feared by those they are trying to connect, just about anyone and everyone is able to relate to them.

Their impact in the world of comics has been significant, but so too has their time spent on the big screen. The X-Men franchise has now been around for 15 years, spawning a number of box office hits and spinoffs. Right now, the series is showing no signs of slowing down with three instalments – X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, and Gambit – lined up for 2016.

With more titles than you can count (it’s not unusual for the X-Men to have at least three or four team books on sale at the same time) and decades worth of stories behind them, their history is »

Review: 'Marvel's Agents of Shield' - 'Love in the Time of Hydra': Shield vs. Shield

24 March 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as it's a little early for Taco Tuesday... "Love in the Time of Hydra" doesn't explain exactly who is funding Real Shield (to the point where they have their own helicarrier, which Coulson's group would kill for), what kind of authority they have within the U.S. government, how neither Coulson nor Talbot seems to know they exist, or any other pesky details. It does, however, explain why this group, led by Edward James Olmos' Robert Gonzales(*), feels the need to have their own group independent of Nick Fury's desires. And it presents them as good guys who just differ on certain philosophical issues from our heroes. That's a change from the Hydra arc introduced in "Winter Soldier," and hero vs. hero conflicts can often be more interesting than hero vs. villain. (There's a reason one »

'Mallrats 2': Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty Will Return!

24 March 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Kevin Smith confirmed last week that his upcoming sequel Mallrats 2 is happening, the filmmaker has quickly been re-assembling his cast from the 1995 cult classic Mallrats. The director teased last week that original Mallrats stars Jason Mewes, Michael Rooker and Stan Lee will be back, and now he has confirmed two more cast members, Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty. Shannen Doherty was actually a guest on Kevin Smith's Hollywood Babble On podcast, where she confirmed that she will come back. Here's what the director had to say yesterday in a message to his fans.

"'Brenda?' On the new Hollywood Babble On, Shannen Doherty says she's going back to the Mall, ya'll! This is special to me because it was Shando herself who single-handedly got Mallrats the green-light back in '95! So Rene returns, as the Rats roll call continues! 5 down and 7 to go! Collect 'em all! &#8234#&#8206MR2&#8236"

Kevin Smith confirms Jason Lee for Mallrats 2

24 March 2015 10:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well you couldn’t have a Mallrats sequel without him, could you?

Director Kevin Smith took to Twitter and Facebook today to announce that Brodie himself Jason Lee will be returning for Mallrats 2, which is set to start shooting later on this year. This is on the heels of Smith confirming Shannen Doherty yesterday and Michael Rooker, Stan Lee and Jason Mewes last week. Smith also mentioned on his Hollywood Babble On podcast that his co-host Ralph Garman would also have a role.

Here’s the tweet:

Despite being the secondary character in the movie to T.S., Jason Lee’s Brodie is a firm favourite among Kevin Smith’s characters, and his performance would see him work with Smith on Chasing Amy, »

Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty will return for Kevin Smith's Mallrats 2

24 March 2015 4:11 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Kevin Smith has wasted no time assembling his Mallrats 2 cast, despite several other projects (Clerks III, Hit Somebody, Moose Jaws) initially standing between now and then. Last we heard, Smith assembled Jason Mewes, Stan Lee and Michael Rooker to take a return trip to the mall. Today we have confirmation that (arguably) the star of the show has returned; Jason Lee. While the story of Mallrats didn't win anyone over, Jason Lee's performance as Brodie Bruce did, and paved the »

Shannen Doherty confirmed for Mallrats 2

23 March 2015 6:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kevin Smith Instagramed a photo the other day that confirmed he would be going back to the mall along with Jason Mewes (Jay), Michael Rooker (Mr. Svenning) and Stan Lee. Smith has said that he has reached out to all of the original cast, and now he’s confirmed another member of the original Mallrats crew.

Taking to Twitter, Smith posted a picture of him posing alongside Shannen Doherty, who played Rene in the original movie, to confirm that Doherty will be returning for Mallrats 2. Doherty also confirmed this herself on Kevin Smith’s podcast Hollywood Babble On. Doherty was a surprise appearance on the podcast, which was recorded in Canada where she just so happened to be at a fan expo, and when Smith asked her on stage if she was going to be in the movie, she replied, “f**k yeah.”

'Mallrats 2' Photo Reunites Stan Lee, Michael Rooker, Jay & Silent Bob

20 March 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Kevin Smith sent out a mysterious tweet last week, where he revealed his production schedule for the next year and a half, ending with a cryptic hint that a sequel to Mallrats may be happening. Just a few days later, the filmmaker confirmed his plans for the sequel, stating that he could start production by May 2016. Earlier today, Kevin Smith took to his Twitter page once again, hinting that original Mallrats stars Stan Lee, Michael Rooker and Jason Mewes will be back for Mallrats 2. However, the director explained on his Facebook page that they all got together to actually shoot an Audi commercial that will appear online as a tie-in to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he didn't exactly confirm that they will all be back for Mallrats 2. Here's what he had to say below.

Remembering Irwin Hasen: 1918-2015

20 March 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

At its best, comics is like a family, where people in the field are known by their first names by fans and peers alike. Jerry, Joe (well, several Joes, actually, but context always makes it clear which one), Will, Bob, Bill, Stan, Jack, Steve, Marie, Carmine, Len, Marv, Flo.


Irwin Hasen was my friend, just as he was a lot of people’s friend. Of course, millions of people knew Irwin through his comics (Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Wildcat, the Fox, and, of course, Dondi). But because he had no children and no local relatives, Irwin’s friends and companions were his cartooning contemporaries, the cartoonists he mentored, and a steady stream of admirers, thirty to fifty years his junior, who crossed his path in various ways. Some were fans, some fellow comics pros. Some were descendants of his contemporaries, seeking information about and connection with their parents or grandparents through Irwin, »

Here's Proof That Mallrats 2 Is Happening!

20 March 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If there was any doubt in your mind that a sequel to Mallrats is on the way, Kevin Smith has just posted evidence. The filmmaker tossed up a picture on Instagram that features himself, comic legend Stan Lee, and Mallrats stars Jason Mewes and Michael Rooker. In addition to confirming Clerks 3, Smith teased a Mallrats sequel last week, and now we know for sure that it's in the works. "It's half scripted right now and we're pulling our loot together," he told a Tucson, Az, radio station on Friday. "By the time we get to May 2016, we're going to be shooting." So, does this mean we can expect another cameo from Lee? We goin' back to the Mall, ya'll!@therealstanlee, @jaymewes, @michael_rooker & me making a number 2.

Fans of Kevin Smith‘s cult hit “Mallrats” got a treat on Friday when Smith released a photo featuring himself, Stan Lee, Michael Rooker and Jason Mewes, all of whom starred in the film. While many hoped the group had united to discuss “Mallrats 2,” which Smith said in a recent interview he plans to make, sadly it was not the case. According to Smith’s official Facebook page, “ four of us gathered to shoot a really adorable Stan-centric spot for Audi that you’ll see online as we get closer to the release of Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron. »

Kevin Smith teases Mallrats 2

Last week Kevin Smith dropped the announcement that he’s set to follow up Clerks III by revisiting the View Askewniverse once more with Mallrats 2, and now the filmmaker has taken to Twitter to tease the sequel, posting an image of himself alongside Jason Mewes, Michael Rooker and Stan Lee

Smith is currently half way through the script for Mallrats 2, but before then he’s got Yoga-Hosers, Clerks III, Hit Somebody, Moose Jaws and Anti-Claus on his slate, so presumably we won’t get to see the sequel until late 2016 at the earliest…

Female superhero adaptations that nearly happened

18 March 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Wonder Woman to Red Sonja, here are the female comic book projects that we’ve missed out on…

Although Supergirl, Catwoman and Elektra are movies that exist, there are times when we wish they didn’t. To be honest, the ‘perfect’ female-headlined superhero movie is still the stuff of our cinematic dreams. Saying that, TV’s Agent Carter provided us with a brilliant example of bringing a female comic book character to the small screen earlier this year, which hopefully Hollywood will learn a lot from going forward.

Of course, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will be joining their respective cinematic universes soon, with Supergirl getting a pop at small screen success too. It looks like female comic book heroes will be getting the attention they deserve in the live action realm, finally.

This isn’t the first time the powers-that-be in Hollywood have tried to launch a slate of female superheroes, »

Review: 'Marvel's Agents of Shield' - 'One of Us': Supervillain team-up

17 March 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as I introduce the teams over the Pa system... In its bumpy early days, "Agents of Shield" was a superhero show that seemed unwilling and/or unable to admit that it was a superhero show. The stars of the movies were absent (aside from that goofy cameo where Nick Fury showed up to yell at Coulson about a repair bill), and though the team dealt with alien artifacts and people with powers, it always felt like the show was trying to hold all that stuff at arm's length, as if even the popularity of the Marvel films had somehow not made this stuff mainstream enough. That was a long time ago, though, and "One of Us" was a fun damn episode of a show that takes place in a superhero universe and is no longer the least bit ashamed to admit it, »

Marvel Studios Countdown: Meet the Twins From 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

16 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

We may have met “the twins” in Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s post-credits bit, but we won’t find out how they fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe until Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is approaching, well, as fast as Quicksilver. Yes, he’s the showstopper from X-Men: Days of Future Past, but don’t get confused - the Quicksilver in the Avengers sequel is a completely different take bearing the same name (just like how multiple actors have played Superman, but not the same version of Superman). We’ll also get Scarlet Witch, an Avengers mainstay who has been the centerpiece of some of the biggest comic book storylines of all time.   Who created the twins and when was their first appearance? Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created...

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Quicksilver'

13 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ the super-powered 'inhuman' known as 'Quicksilver', aka 'Pietro Maximoff' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) from the set of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

Debuting in Marvel Comics' 'X-Men' #4 (March 1964), 'Quicksilver' was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, as the son of 'Magneto', twin brother of 'Scarlet Witch' and paternal half-brother of 'Polaris'.

An example of a ruthless villain turned good, the character is first revealed cinematically in a mid-credits scene during Marvel Studios' "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

"...according to Marvel Comics, 'Quicksilver' is a mutant capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. Originally capable of running at the speed of sound, the exposure to 'Isotope E' made it possible for the character to run at supersonic speeds of up to 'Mach 10', resisting the effects of friction, reduced oxygen and kinetic impact.

"The character's speed allows him to perform feats such as create cyclone-strength winds, »
