The first official stills from Matthew Vaughn’s sure-to-be kickass comic book movie “Kick Ass” (aka the other cool comic book movie of 2009 not named “Watchmen”) have surfaced online via the boys over at Newsarama. If you’ve read the comics by writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr., then you know this thing looks spot-on accurate, right now to the bad homemade sewing stitches on the costume. Okay, the costume itself doesn’t look so bad. In fact, I think it could have looked a little bit more “teenage boy did this”-ish, but what the hey, I’m digging this movie way too much to start nitpicking it now. Check out the pics below.
Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan with a few friends and who lives alone with his father. His life is not very difficult and his personal trials not that overwhelming. However, one day he makes the simple decision to become a super-hero even though he has no powers or training.
Matthew Vaughn, may I just say, you are kick-ass, my man.
Below: Don’t make fun of the costume. You’ll make him cry.
