Kevin Smith’s return to stand-up comedy ended in the hospital. But from an Instagram selfie on his hospital bed, the director of Clerks and Chasing Amy hints he’s moving forward with Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.

On early Monday morning, Smith shared an Instagram selfie from a hospital bed, following a heart attack he suffered on Sunday night. “If I hadn’t canceled the second show to go to the hospital, the Doc said I would’ve died tonight,” Smith wrote.

The day before, on Sunday, Smith was shooting the first of two new live specials in Glendale when he suffered a heart attack that forced the cancellation of his second show. At the hospital, Smith was informed that he had “100% blockage” of his LAD artery, which he says is known as the “Widow-Maker.” Thankfully, Smith made it to the hospital in time.

Characteristically open and honest about his personal life in public, Smith said he was “content” if his time was up, with the only disappointment being that he wouldn’t get to make Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, a continuation of Smith’s View Askew film series.

“But as I stared into the infinite, I realized I was relatively content,” Smith wrote. “Yes, I’d miss life as it moved on without me - and I was bummed we weren’t gonna get to make #jayandsilentbobreboot before I shuffled loose the mortal coil. But generally speaking, I was okay with the end, if this was gonna be it.”

Making a movie is probably the least of Smith’s concerns at the moment. But for the past few months, Smith has given regular updates via social media on writing and producing Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, in which Smith’s pot-smoking mascots Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) attempt to stop the movie reboot of their comic book Bluntman and Chronic.

The film is a sequel to 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, when the duo first traveled all the way from New Jersey to Hollywood to stop the original Bluntman and Chronic, which starred fictionalized versions of James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) and Jason Biggs (American Pie).

Aside from directing movies and shows like The Flash and Supergirl, Smith is also a podcaster whose fans tune in to listen to his take on geek pop culture. They’re also interested in his sometimes fascinating personal life; for example, his bizarre adventures writing the script for Tim Burton’s failed Superman movie with Nicholas Cage. Smith says this latest episode “is part of my mythology now,” which can only mean a podcast about the harrowing experience is in store.

“This is all a part of my mythology now and I’m sure I’ll be facing some lifestyle changes (maybe it’s time to go Vegan),” Smith said. “But the point of this post is to tell you that I faced my greatest fear tonight… and it wasn’t as bad as I’ve always imagined it’d be. I don’t want my life to end but if it ends, I can’t complain. It was such a gift.”

There is not yet a release date for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.

Everyone’s favorite interdimensional animated duo, Morty Smith and Rick Sanchez, have been on hiatus since Rick and Morty Season 3 ended in October 2017. Even though Adult Swim ordered a whopping 70 more episodes of the show for the near future, the only thing on anybody’s mind is when Season 4 might finally grace us with more wacky adventures.

The Dragon Prince landed on Netflix last week, but the show is already a hit, generating loads of fan art and a passionate community eager to dive into this new fantasy world from some of the minds behind Avatar: The Last Airbender. The show’s first season lasts for just nine episodes, so there’s a pretty good chance you’ve already binged through it. If that’s the case, you’re probably already wondering when we can expect to get a release date for Dragon Prince Season 2.

The first official photo of Joaquin Phoenix in character as the Joker had him looking decidedly nonplussed, but the first video teaser may give you genuine chills. The new Joker camera test not only gives Phoenix some creepy clown makeup, but the Clown Prince of Crime even cracks a smile.

Earlier this week, Joker director Todd Phillips shared the first official photo of Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, the man that goes on to become Batman’s greatest nemesis, but on Friday afternoon, he shared a screen test from what looks like the same moment as the photo. Except here, the projection of a clown video flickers across Fleck’s face as he slowly cracks a smile, revealing a layer of smudged clown makeup across his face.

The very last week of Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 challenges are here, and even though huge changes are bound to happen very soon, the typical “search between” challenge model is totally back for Week 10.

Week 10 challenges in Fortnite were released Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and one of the “HARD” challenges has players “search between a covered bridge, waterfall, and the 9th green.”

The very last week of Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 challenges are here, and for Week 10, players have to solve a puzzle — or at least find a bunch of jigsaw puzzle pieces.

Week 10 challenges in Fortnite were released Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and perhaps the most fun challenge has players “search jigsaw puzzle pieces in basements.” This one’s just like previous challenges involving gnomes, rubber duckies, or even letters — there are many locations on the map that contain puzzle pieces, but players only need to get seven of them to complete the challenge. In this case, every puzzle piece will be located in some kind of basement, and it does seem like almost every basement on the map has one.
