Those of you came out yesterday screaming bloody murder when we posted a rumor that suggested Kevin Smith might be up for a directing gig on the Green Arrow flick Supermax -- well, don't worry, he's not doing it. If you read Cinematical religiously (which you should ... but I didn't say that), you probably already know that Smith has denied the entire thing. When and where did he deny it, you ask? Well, look no further than the comments section on Cinematical. Yup, as he does on occasion, Smith himself showed up in response to the rumor that Peter from SlashFilm had previously posted. In case you missed it, or glanced passed it, here's what Smith had to say: "I dig Peter at slashfilm, but that conjecture was a real stretch. I.E. - No, I'm not directing "SuperMax". You may all breathe a sigh of relief now."

Here's where you say: "Um, dude, how do you know that was Kevin Smith answering and not some poser trying to deceive you?" Valid question. But following the comment, I spoke to Kevin directly and confirmed that it was indeed him who left that comment. So there ya go. He's not directing Supermax. But the question still remains: Will Smith finally direct a superhero-related film following Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Red State? He's stressed before that he'd like to, not to mention the fact that he's written superhero-related scripts, was at one point attached to write and direct a Green Lantern flick, and is currently signed on to helm an episode of that Heroes spin-off show, Heroes: Origins. The cards certainly seem to be lining up for the man; now, the fun part -- we play the waiting game. Cue Jeopardy music ...
