‘Jay And Silent Bob Reboot’ Official First Look Revealed

The Fat Man (not so fat anymore) Silent Bob and his heterosexual life partner, Jay, are back in Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The filming for the movie has already wrapped up and Smith decided to mark the occasion by posting an official look of the two iconic characters on his Instagram page:

SNOOGANS! Here’s a first look at @jayandsilentbobreboot, courtesy of our genius @dpronlevy and our master stills artist @kylebonokaplan. On this adventure, Silent Bob’s dressed pretty much the same as he’s been in #Dogma through #clerks2, but Jay’s outfit has changed a bit, including his Ranger Danger t-shirt designed by @captain_ribman (the artist who created my Fat Man logo). Years back when I was working on Clerks III, Ribman and I came up with a slew of Ranger Danger comic covers to flesh out the world of the flick and make it seem like Ranger Danger had been around as long as Superman and the Fantastic Four. When Clerks III went away, the artwork sat dormant on my laptop for years. But when Reboot started taking serious shape, I blew the dust off the Ranger Danger artwork and put it to work all over Brodie’s Secret Stash. But I saved the Dark Knight-ish Ranger Danger: Requiem shirt for Jay to wear throughout the flick because in the world of our movie, Ranger Danger: Requiem is a gritty, rebooted version of a childhood superhero fave. Today marks the end of Week One of filming, and what a wonderful week it’s been! We’ve already shot a fist fulla cameos and @JayMewes is CRUSHING his return to the role that made him famous! If you’re way into this shit like I am, we’ve kicked off a making-of series on my @youtube channel (like we did for Clerks II back in 2006) called “The Road to Reboot”! See it at the link in my bio. #KevinSmith #jaymewes #movie #jayandsilentbobreboot #nola #sabanfilms #neworleans #wwambassador

Though it’s been over a decade since we’ve seen the two in one of Smith’s film,—and age has caught up to them—it’s still a blessing to see the actors in their most well-known roles.

Smith dove more into the shooting and creative process of the film through the IG post:

“SNOOGANS! Here’s a first look at Jay and Silent Bob Reboot courtesy of our genius [Ron Levy] and our master stills artist [Kyle Kaplan],” Smith wrote in the post. “On this adventure, Silent Bob’s dressed pretty much the same as he’s been in Dogma through Clerks 2, but Jay’s outfit has changed a bit, including his Ranger Danger t-shirt designed by [Captain Ribman] (the artist who created my Fat Man logo).

The director also dropped some news that he will be posting episodes of behind-the-scenes through a making-of series on his very own YouTube channel called, The Road to Reboot. Episode 1 and 2 are available for fans to watch in anticipation for the new film.
