During an appearance at Zanies Comedy Club in Nashville, Tennessee as part of the Wild West Comedy Festival, director Kevin Smith shared some info about the upcoming Mallrats sequel. After pointing out that Stan Lee is the number one actor he’s worked with if you totaled up the box office for all the movies he’s been in, Smith praised Lee as being someone who is always eager to work with him.

Smith said Lee responded, “Oh my god, finally, now I’ll get more than two lines.”
