Kevin Smith is currently in the midst of the Reboot Roadshow, which is taking him across the country to screen Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. The end of the film features a nice tribute to the late, great comics legend, Stan Lee, who Smith has worked with on multiple occasions. Smith first featured Lee in Mallrats back in 1995. In fact, Lee was seen reading the script for the film in last year's Captain Marvel, which happened to take place in '95. Last night, Smith took to Twitter to share a sweet clip of an audience's reaction to the Lee tribute during the latest Reboot screening.
"One of my favorite parts of every #JayAndSilentBobReboot Roadshow screening is the hero's welcome the audience always gives @TheRealStanLee. This is what it was like to be behind the screen at the @FargoTheatre last night, when all that love and laughter hit hardest," Smith wrote.

"He is universally loved and respected. Every time I watch this sequence it activates the water works," @DiscoD_83 wrote.
"I never got to meet Stan Lee but it's indescribable the impact he had upon my life. Huge portions of which only exist because of him. I owe him so much," @KaraTheBroken added.
"Honestly, it doesn't matter how many times I see that clip it always makes me laugh! It such a shame he didn't get to be in Reboot," @lmasterson32 replied.
