The relationship between Hollywood and comic book culture is lambasted in this mockumentary as a beloved heroic character is rung through the studio system.
Don Swan (Mark Hamill) interviews Kevin Smith in the movie and asks him about Smith's fictional first draft of the 'Commander Courage' movie. Smith mentions the movie's producers constantly hounding him over adding a giant spider to the 'Courage' script for no reason, among other problems. The scene is directly referencing Smith's famous real-life hassles attempting to draft a 'Superman' script for Warner Bros.
They did put him in Vietnam and they tried to put a more whimsical skew on his adversaries. There was a character called Ho-Ho-Ho Chi Minh who was sort of a combination, like a gagster version of a Vietnamese madman.
A special thanks to all the people attending the Con for playing along with us.
