Masters of the Universe: Revelation: Kevin Smith Is Big Tony Todd Fan

The last time we checked in with director and "Uber-Geek" Kevin Smith, he was throwing out tons of love at Comic-Con@Home to writers Marc Bernardin (Castle Rock), Eric Carrasco (Supergirl), Diya Mishra (October Faction), and Tim Sheridan (The Death and Return of Superman), the cast, and animation studio Powerhouse (Castlevania) for all of their hard work on Masters of the Universe: Revelation. From the lengthy update he gave (here), it sounds like their return to Eternia will be one that fans will be proud of. We're now two weeks later, and we can't shake this feeling that we might be getting a teaser of some type soon, even if it's only with 10-15 seconds of actual footage.

Heading over to Smith's Twitter account for an update, we found a nice exchange between Smith and actor Tony Todd (Candyman, The Crow) that began with Todd thanking Smith for bringing him on board as the voice of Scareglow (Skeletor ally who uses fear as a weapon). Smith would retweet Todd's post, commenting on Todd's "unsettling and commanding" performance and offering him a "glowing" approval:
