Director Kevin Smith is heading to Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada this weekend for a special Maritime edition of the 'Fatman on Batman' podcast at Fundy Fan Fest. Comic fans will get insights into the Dark Knight from a man who "knows Batman inside and out," according to Smith's longtime friend and collaborator Jason Mewes (a.k.a. Jay of 'Jay and Silent Bob').
He says that Fan Fest-goers should be prepared to shed some tears while sharing laughs with Smith and co-host Marc Bernardin during the show.
"Kevin literally cries over Batman stuff," Mewes told Civilized recently. "He'll cry over stuff if he's talking about - he gets very emotional if he's talking stuff like you know, 'The first time I read this Batman comic and this happened, and that happened' and stuff like that. He'll cry. Not in a bad way. It's a good thing. He just gets so into comics."
So be sure to bring along a box of Kleenex if you're heading to Fundy Fan Fest this weekend. And if you can't make the show, check out his podcast on YouTube, featuring last week's discussion of 'The Last Jedi,' 'Deadpool 2' and 'The Dark Tower.' Plus Smith and Bernardin dust off their impersonations of Tom Hardy's Bane from 'The Dark Knight Rises.'
