Kevin Smith's Done With Slackers

While talking to the Huffington Post director Kevin Smith revealed that he had an epiphany following Zack and Miri's box-office failure,

"It's sad when you realize you can't be the angry young man anymore. The angry young man is barely ever interesting, and tolerable in his 20s. But his late 20s? Early 30s? God forbid late 30s? You can't anymore. I'm in a business where I get to make pretend for a living, so what the fuck am I angry about? There's nothing anymore; I'm a very content, middle aged man," Smith said. "People are like 'Ah when are Jay and Silent Bob coming back?' And I'm like 'I don't think they are. I'm fuckin' 39! I can't just put my fuckin' hat on backwards."

His next film is A Couple of Dicks starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as buddies who have been on the force for years. That's sad to hear that Smith is done with slacker films after he's made classics like Clerks, Mallrats, and Chasing Amy. But that is just the natural progression of the film career get out before you can't leave. I wonder if this means that there won't be a 3rd Clerks?

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.

The Avengers hits theatres in 2012.
