Warning: Mild Captain Marvel spoilers are below!
If you’ve seen Captain Marvel by now, you’ll know there’s something in it Kevin Smith probably loved to see.
Stan’s cameo in the movie is him on the train in Los Angeles, reading the script to Mallrats while rehearsing his lines from the movie. Obviously, fans wanted to know what Kevin Smith thought about that, and he’s now posted his reaction:
Just saw @captainmarvel. I am a blubbering mess. After a lifetime spent referencing the movies, the movies just referenced me! Many thanks to @MarvelStudios and to my friend @TheRealStanLee for the shout-out! But if I’m now part of the @Marvel Universe… Did I survive The Snap? pic.twitter.com/S560n3mQFl

The cameo is a great reference, since Mallrats was released in 1995, and it was great to see Stan reading that script and saying his familiar lines from his cameo in it. Smith’s reaction is pretty much what most people expected, and it’s very genuine.
