With Jay and Silent Bob headed back to the big screen in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, the film's writer, director and star, Kevin Smith, has teased a tribute to late comic writer Stan Lee in the film.

On his Twitter account, someone asked Smith if he was planning on doing a post or pre-credits tribute to Lee for the film, while also acknowledging that Smith wouldn't want to give away any spoilers.

Smith's only response was ominously telling the follower: "Trust me, True Believer...", then ending with #JayAndSilentBobReboot.

While he didn't divulge any details, it seems Smith does have something planned to pay tribute to the legendary comic writer. Friends in real life, Lee first worked with Smith in the latter's film, Mallrats, in which he had a cameo. This led to the two working with each other several times afterwards. Last April, several months before his death, Smith even invited Lee to come live with him at his home out of concern for Lee's welfare.
