The conversation wasn’t all serious and topics of discussion quickly took a turn for the geeky – starting with the cast’s breakdown of why Robin the Boy Wonder has zero chance of standing up to his dark alternate, Hit-Girl:

Aaron Taylor-Johnson: I can answer for her that, she would totally [take Robin].

Chloe Grace Moretz: Yea I would definitely beat up Robin, I think I would.

Jeff Wadlow: Does it depend on the Robin we’re talking about?

Aaron Taylor-Johnson: Isn’t Joseph Gordon-Levitt Robin?

Jeff Wadlow: He’s been Robin in the most recent one.

Chloe Grace Moretz: Or is he the new Batman? That’s the question. [Smiles coyly]

Jeff Wadlow: My money is still on Hit Girl

Chloe Grace Moretz: Ok, I’ll take the compliment.

Not to be outdone, Aaron Taylor-Johnson was treated to his own geek inquiry when the subject of his previously-rumored candidacy for the Amazing Spider-Man franchise was brought up:

Aaron Taylor-Johnson: …I do think there are some characteristics that do kind of resemble a Spider-Man/Peter Parker thing. I think definitely Dave would have been a huge fan of Spider-Man and we play on that I think in the first one… and I’m going to leave it at that.

Jeff Wadlow: Even Mark has said in many interviews that ‘Kick-Ass’ is sort of the real-world more warped view of the Marvel universe – and not just the Marvel universe the entire comic book universe – because obviously Hit-Girl and Big Daddy are Robin and Batman and Kick-Ass is Spiderman. We talked about how the Colonel is our version of Captain America. While the other superheroes are sort of warped riffs on famous comic book characters—

Aaron Taylor-Johnson: like the Avengers or whatever…

An ironic statement from Johnson, given that he WILL be joining the actual Avengers, playing the character of Quicksilver in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Joss Whedon’s sequel to his highly-successful Avengers film.


Kick-Ass 2 will be in theaters on August 16, 2013.

Be sure to stay tuned for more of our interviews with the cast & crew.

  1. Sorry Hit Girl but Robin will kick your ass

    • @StarLord:

    • Hit Girl would kill Robin, literally.

      • Exactly.

      • Depends which robin we are talking about
        Dick Grayson would simply dodge her, call half the dc world and they would gang up on her
        Jason hmm per red hood she might win. Post red hood- pre new 52 I see them killing each other. Post red hood new 52 Jason nails her.
        Tim would simply see her coming way before anything happens.
        Damian would kill her. No questions . He dispatched squads of man bat creatures while diving from an airplane when he was not even 10. Killed nobody with his bate hands when he was 11 – and the guy was the son of Henri ducard, one of the master of batman who trained his son to be the best. The boy was practically grown in a tube, raised by assassins and then on top of that trained by batman, his father. Bottom line hit girl is a girl who was trained by a comic book nerd… Damian would crucify her.

  2. Can’t wait to see this movie, loved the first one. Bad guys take note: if you want to hurt Hit-Girl, get a van :)

  3. theres no way in hell Robin beats hit girl. pointless argument but in my opinion hitgirl is way more violent and a lot less…sissy than robin is.

  4. I didn’t think the first was good but I’ll catch this to see if it’s an improvement.

    I still prefer Super though, that movie was great.

    • Super is SOOO underrated. Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page great in it. Kevin Bacon was an awesome villain.
      Shame they never made a sequel.

      • I disliked super and found kickass to be better in almost every aspect. I didnt even chuckle during super it was just bland. But hey its one guys opinion

  5. The Damian Wayne Robin would murder her

  6. This might just end up being the best comic book movie of the year for me.

    • Same.

  7. Really excited to see this sequel! Hit-girl for the win!

  8. @mike Hit-Girl could not beat Robin (Damian Wayne). Damian Wayne is more skilled due being trained by the League of Assassins, he was born to to kill. If Hit-Girl is up against the other previous Robins, yes she would beat them.

  9. Lol, hit girl wouldn’t stand a chance against any Robin. Not even a little. Hit girls good, but Robin? Come on…

  10. Dick Jason Tim and Damian have all proven to be able to not only hold their own against MULTIPLE (20-25+) ninjas, but defeat them. Hit girl couldn’t fight the bad guy at the end of the first kick ass on her own. Big Daddy couldn’t take a Robin down. And he needs/uses guns.

  11. Am I the only notice the date when the movie comes out?: August 16, 2103
