Kevin Smith Has an Emotional Response To His CAPTAIN MARVEL Easter Egg
After Kevin Smith saw Captain Marvel, he posted this photo of himself on Instagram with his eyes welled up with tears. Why? Because there was an Easter egg in the film that referenced him.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, and you don’t want the Easter egg spoiled for you then…
The Kevin Smith reference comes along with Stan Lee’s big cameo in the film. When Brie Larson enters a train looking for her Skrull target, she sees Stan Lee sitting down with a script of Smith’s film Mallrats, and he is practicing his lines. With the film being set in the 90s, this is the perfect freakin’ cameo for Lee and the audiences loved it!
Anyway, here’s the emotional response that Smith had in regards to his Easter egg:

Just saw @captainmarvelofficial. I am a blubbering mess. After a lifetime spent referencing the movies, the movies just referenced me! Many thanks to @marvelstudios, #ryanfleck, #annabodin, and to my friend @therealstanlee for the cinematic shout-out! But if I’m now part of the @marvel Universe, I have only one question: Did I survive The Snap? #KevinSmith #captainmarvel #marveluniverse #marvel #marvelstudios #gratitude #kevinfeige #ryanfleck #annaboden
The guy is obviously so grateful for the reference and it must’ve been such a cool experience for him to see that.
