Kevin Smith Gave A Super-Cool Wrap Gift to the Supergirl Cast & Crew

It is no secret that film director Kevin Smith is fantastically excited to be directing the upcoming “Supergirl” episode “Supergirl Lives.”

Now, with filming on his episode concluded, the director has shared some details of the “thank you” gift he had created for his co-workers and colleagues on the show – a commemorative wrap-party t-shirt.

The shirt features some specially commissioned art by Jeff Quigley that riffs off the iconic George Pérez cover from “Crisis on Infinite Earths” #7. But in the place of the Man of Steel, there is “the Man of Shhhh” — Silent Bob, holding a fallen Supergirl.

In a post on his Facebook page Smith explained his reasons for giving the shirts, saying: “having worked on both #Supergirl and @cwtheflash, I can equate the experience to making both a[n] sfx extravaganza AND an indie flick at the same time: you have the talent and tools of a big budget movie but the time of a low budget flick.”

“Most of the folks who work on these shows COME from feature films and do work you’d normally see in feature films – but do it in only 8 days. So it feels natural to celebrate the end of our journey the same way we wrap movies: with a free, commemorative t-shirt,” he added.

The director went on to heap more praise on his “Supergirl” colleagues, saying “If there’s any[thing] bad about #supergirllives, it’s entirely mine: because the cast and crew made a fantastic episode. I know this not only because I was there watching when they did it, but also because I’ve already peeped [at] some of the scenes our editor Barbara cut together. This ‘thank you’ t-shirt is the least I can do for the folks who made me look like I might be good at my job.”
