 Mark Millar Talks ‘Kick Ass 2’ Fight Scenes

After hearing that Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down) was taking over the director’s chair from Matthew Vaughn for Kick-Ass 2, fans of the 2010 hit were unsure if he would bring the same visual flair and penchant for ingenious, yet violent, fight scenes that helped make the first Kick-Ass a worldwide smash to the anticipated sequel.

Mark Millar, writer/co-creator of the Kick-Ass comic book, recently revealed some details about the fight scenes in the upcoming film, after viewing some pre-visualized versions performed by the stunt team. By his account, fans should expect to be wowed again when the film is released next June.

Said Millar, via his forum,

“The Mother Russia fight is going to be one of the most brutal and epic battles in cinema. Think how good Mindy is, and then multiply it to 300 pounds of female muscle just pounding her and using every weapon you can imagine in the midst of that big final battle,”

Even though the film doesn’t start shooting until September 10th, the stunt team has been hard at work for several weeks rehearsing the fight scenes. The pre-visualization fight sequences are intended to give the filmmakers a sense of what they will look like in the finished product, and ergo, what to expect when they shoot the real thing with the cast on set.

This looks amazing with the stunt team and a temp. Imagine what it’s going to look like with the actors, Jeff’s direction, Eddie’s edits and a final soundtrack. I’m really, really excited,” Millar said.

Kick-Ass 2 will be based on the sequel comic by Millar and John Romita Jr. It focuses on Mindy Macready/Hit-Girl attempting to acclimate to her new, “normal” life as a school student, while Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass tries to deal the new wave of copycat heroes he has inspired, and the ramifications that come when his secret identity gets out. Trouble rears its head for both Mindy and Dave as Red Mist (redubbed “The Motherfu*ker”) takes to the streets with a gang of  super villains (such as the aforementioned “Mother Russia”) seeking terrible vengeance on both Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl. The comic contained some brutal and controversial moments; however, according to star Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist), some of that brutality has been toned-down for the film.

Kick Ass 2 will be in theaters on June 28, 2013.

  1. I’m more wary of the fact that McLovin himself will be the main villain this time around. I was ok with him the first time around, but mark Strong was great.

    I can’t see Mintz-Plasse filling those shoes too well.

  2. I read over the comic and if it stays true to it this is going to be one dark brutal movie.

    • I just hope it keeps as true to the comments as possible. The rape scene has been removed which is unfortunate but hopefully it is hinted as i feel that it would definetly give Kick-ass more of a reason to try to kill Red Mist in the final fight (Yes i know his new name)

      Some things they should really keep are;
      The Rape Scene (Or atleast a refrence)
      The lynching scene
      The Funeral and Funeral attack (THIS IS MAJORLY IMPORTANT)
      The explosive comic book store and Kick-ass’s house scene
      The dead shark (this hammers in that Red Mist is just following the teachings of movie villains)
      Cops vs Mother Russia. The shootout scene where Mother Russia kills the cops should be kept.
      Red Mist killing innocent kids
      Mother Russia’s death (Needs to be exactly as depicted in the comics)
      Kick-Ass Vs Red-Mist needs to be slightly more brutal than the comics due to the kind of character the film version Red Mist is. Still needs to have Red Mist try to bribe Kick-ass to stop though
      The Ending (Needs to be kept the same. Red Mist should be taken to hospital after falling, Mindy should take the blame and be imprisoned – in a similar feeling scene to The Dark Knight ending)

  3. Seriously I was halfway through the thing, and I had to put it down for a sec cause it got freaking ****ed up man.

    • yes you are totally right. happy now !

    • now,my english grammar is bad,but yours is terrible. what is – turrible-?

  4. ^obviously trolling

    • Lmao I know and its so attention seekingly-obvious. If your going to do it, the trick is to sound older then five.

    • Kick-Ass was a terrible movie but your “opinions” are clearly trolling via the comments you made.

      LOTR was a fantastic trilogy, Nolan’s Batman trilogy was great, Austin Powers? Not very good at all.

      Unless you’re just preparing for a role in the inevitable US remake of Troll Hunter.

      • touche´! : )

  5. Im not trolling im stating facts just if i was 2 say transformers franchise is better than the star wars franchise!!!guess im trolling now huh?
