Mark Millar believes “Kick Ass” the movie will be such a major hit that he foresees them shooting a sequel within two years. Or at least, that’s the plan. I personally don’t see his and Matthew Vaughn’s movie being that big, or bigger than “Wanted”, another one of Millar’s unknown comic book property turned major action movie success. For one, there’s simply too much gratuitous violence in “Kick Ass”, made even worst because it’s being done by and to kids. Trust me, if the film stays as true to the comics as everyone is claiming it will be, there’s gonna be a whole lot of issues the movie studio will have to deal with when they start showing footage of this thing to the public. Anyways, don’t tell Mark Millar that.
The comic book scribe tells SciFiWire:
Kick-Ass 2 is already being plotted out. We’re planning it, because all the actors are quite young and we have to make it relatively quickly. So we’ll definitely do that inside the next 18 to 24 months.
I personally stopped reading the “Kick Ass” comic book after they introduced Hit Girl. I dunno, it just stopped being interesting, but maybe that’s just me. Mark Millar seems incredibly excited though.
