Don’t expect ‘Kick-Ass 3’, kids

Mark Millar, comic book artist and notorious exaggerator, is uncharacteristically apprehensive about a third Kick-Ass movie. Though he’s written enough material for a new Kick-Ass film, Millar is in doubt the people with the money will want to fund it. He gave Comic Book Resources the math: “With Kick-Ass, it was a no brainer. It […]

The Mindy project – Kick-Ass 2 review

By Simon Miraudo August 20, 2013 With its second instalment, the Kick-Ass saga has officially been stripped of its satirical bite. No biggie. So long as Chloë Grace Moretz‘s murderous Mindy Macready – aka Hit Girl – remains in the limelight, I’ll take little umbrage with the bastardisation of the comics upon which these movies […]

According to Deadline, Universal want Carrey to play The Colonel in the DIY superhero flick. The character brings together a group of crime-fighters, Nick Fury style, to take down evil forces.

Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, and Nicolas Cage in talks for Kick-Ass 2

We’ve trained ourselves to not believe a word that comes out of Kick-Ass author Mark Millar’s mouth, so you can imagine our surprise when Deadline revealed a sequel to his 2010 superhero flick was indeed in the works. Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz are currently finalising deals with Universal Pictures to appear in the second instalment as […]

Kick-Ass 2 shooting this year?

That headline should be taken with not just a grain of salt, but perhaps an entire refinery. Comic author Mark Millar told Scotland’s Daily Record a sequel to Kick-Ass would begin shooting in the American summer. This would indeed be impressive, considering there are no stars attached, no screenplay, no director, and no formal announcement from studio Lionsgate. […]

Kick Ass 2 is happening, says wild exaggerator.

Mark Millar has built a reputation for himself as one of the entertainment industry’s least reliable sources of information. Therefore, we take his declaration on BBC Radio that Kick Ass 2 has been greenlit with a pinch of salt. Millar is, of course, the creator of the Kick Ass comic, and a pathological exaggerator (lest […]
