Rumors about my favorite films tug on my heart strings hard, especially when the air is cleared. As Sin City 2 has proven, many things should be taken with a grain of salt until we find out the truth. And like Sin City 2, it appears that Kick-Ass 2 will not be happening anytime soon. Keep reading to find out why…
With the amount of underground success Kick-Ass had with its movie and the fan base the first comic rang up, it was only a matter of time before Frank Millar would give us Kick-Ass 2. But will we see a Kick-Ass 2 movie? With the low ticket sales, yet high DVD sales, Kick-Ass 2 is up in the air. Perhaps Vaughn will try again and make it independently. John Romita Jr. looks on top of his game with his artwork and Millar continues his run of witty writing.
I’m not entirely sure if this is released to your local comic shop, but /Film is saying you can pick it up. So keep reading after the break if you want to check out the first few pages of what Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall looks like.
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.”
