SPOILERS ahead for Captain Marvel.
Kevin Smith is officially part of the MCU thanks to a reference to Mallrats in Captain Marvel.
Kevin Smith took to Instagram and posted a very emotional picture and message that thanked Marvel for the inclusion of the script of Mallrats, which was being read by the one-and-only Stan Lee in one of his famous cameos.
“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”
