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…
Unbeknownst to the average joe, or probably many people, Matthew Vaughn didn’t intentionally want that group shot of the X-Men from First Class released nor did he have any knowledge of its origin. Luckily, for /Film and Peter Sciretta, he got an exclusive phone interview with the director and received two great images of the main characters themselves, James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr, WITH HELMET! Check them out after the break!
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.”

Stories have been thrown back and forth whether or not Kick-Ass director, Matthew Vaughn, would be helming the prequel/reboot of the X-Men franchise new film, X-Men: First Class, based off the comic book written by Jeff Parker. Many names were dropped (Louis Leterrier, Jonathan Mostow, Daniel Espinosa, Rupert Sanders, Timur Bekmambetov, David Slade, and Carl Erick Rinsch) in terms of who would be placed to direct this film, but ultimately the final decision has been placed on Matthew Vaughn for a June, 3, 2011 release.
The full length trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass has finally been released and let me tell you, it is kick ass! Based off the graphic novel written by Mark Millar (Wanted), this off the wall superhero comedy/action flick blows Wanted out of the water. The film comes out April 16, and I suggest you watch this trailer and then definitely go see this film, other wise you should get your ass kicked.
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.
