With the unexpected success of Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass, there is expectation of a sequel despite its low box office performance. Well you are in luck my friends because light has been shed by Mark Millar, writer of the Kick-Ass comic. ForcesofGeek got a hold of a press release about the start up of a monthly magazine joint venture with Mark Millar and Titan Magazines, CLiNT, and the status of the Kick-Ass sequel.
“Millar is also launching his sequel to the hit Kick-Ass movie in the first issue of the comic. “Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall” has been scheduled for production in 2011 for a 2012 cinema release, but fans of the first movie can find out what happens two years in advance by picking up CLiNT.”
“The 100-page magazine will be packed with interviews and features from movies, games and television as well as four serialized comic-strips. The biggest names in entertainment will be featured every month and some will even be sticking around to write sci-fi, humour or horror stories after they’ve been interviewed and quizzed.”
Check out the rest of the press release after the jump!
Here she is, Hit Girl, in all her Kick-Ass badassedness……The poster doesn’t look too threatening, but the red band trailer is kick ass and pretty effin’ awesome. Played by Chloe Moretz, Hit Girl is just another superhero in the land of Mark Millar’s creation of a graphic novel. This should be better than Wanted and I am quite excited for this.
Kick-Asshas come out with yet another poster with Nic Cage’s character, Big Daddy, on the front, thanks to UGO for the picture. Take a look at this interesting Mark Millar adaptation and go to SHH to check out a short clip which is pretty funny and cool.
Another poster for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass comic book movie has appeared. McLovin’ is looking pretty badass and will most likely be kicking ass as the character Red Mist. This is an adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic and should be set to be in theaters April 16, 2010.
A sweet new character combo poster has been revealed for the Matthew Vaughn-directed comic book adaptation of Kick-Ass. The official website has launched as well at IAmKick-Ass.com. There is a count down to assuming the trailer.
Opening April 16th, Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.
His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).
The film is based on the groundbreaking, best-selling comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.
This is a clip from Mark Millar’s live action adaptation of his comic book, Kick-Ass. The story is about Dave Lizewski, Aaron Johnson, a high school student who reads comic books and forms his own superhero persona, Kick-Ass. This film has no release date as of yet, but hopefully it will come out soon.
