Many comic book movie fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Kick-Ass 2 since the first film was released; still, the current outlook is less than encouraging. Kick-Ass co-writers Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman (Vaughn also directed) are passing on the followup to work on X-Men: First Class 2. Their replacement is writer/director Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down); a candidate who’s inspired more wariness than high hopes.

Nonetheless, there are still healthy levels of interest (and excitement) from fans looking forward to Kick-Ass 2. Today, we have information to share about some of the more important plot points in the sequel.

It’s previously been reported that Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar’s comic book spinoff about Hit-Girl (which… er, hits shelves this week) will serve as the first act in Wadlow’s Kick-Ass 2 movie. Moviehole has garnered the following insight, with respect to what Mindy Macready/Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) will be getting up to during that portion of the film:

Hit-Girl’s identity is [widely] known by this point – and it evokes much nasty yabbering behind Mindy’s back by her schoolmates (she’s nicknamed “Captain Muffin-Muncher”)… But ‘Hit-Girl’, never one to shy away from a confrontation and seemingly always equipped with the perfect weapon of self defense, gets [revenge in]…  let’s say, rather spectacular fashion. It involves gadgetry, projectile vomiting and much begging.

Millar’s Hit-Girl comic takes place before the events of his Kick-Ass 2 storyline; thus, it makes sense to start off the movie sequel with that plot thread. The darkly humorous first half should also help to ease viewers into the more shock-tastic portion of the film (for those unaware: some truly nasty stuff goes down in Kick-Ass 2, which is bound to generate even more controversy – and publicity – than its predecessor).

Meanwhile, Dave Lizewski/Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson) will also have identity issues to deal with in the sequel. Literally, in fact, as Dave’s secret identity is revealed to “someone important. And it has repercussions.” By the sound of it, the plot buildup will be slightly different than Millar’s Kick-Ass 2 source material. Wadlow’s film will still culminate with an emotionally/physically-brutalized Dave reuniting with Mindy in order to assemble allies, for a “Balls to the Wall” fight with Red Mist (Christopher Mintze-Plasse) and his legion of masked villains.

Meanwhile, we’ll continue to keep you updated on Kick-Ass 2 as the project begins to take solid form – with an eye on production getting fully-underway later this year (early fall, most likely).

  1. Mark Millar use to be one of my favorite writers. But now he seems to be nothing more than a hollywood storyboard maker. Thats really disappointing because his early work was top of the line stuff.

    Im still looking forward to Kick Ass 2, but not really expecting much.

  2. I really hope they do justice to the comics and keep the ultra-brutal violence. Not that I’m a fan of violence but it’s essential for Kick-Ass.
    I watched the first movie before I read the books and I was surprised how much they toned down the brutality…

    • Yeah even tho its 18a still dont wanna see dat rape but i dont think theyll show it

      • There’s that public education again…. Sorry, “dat” public education.

      • Totally agree. There’s no need for that. You know 13 yrs and older teen are going to watch this no matter what and if they see that sh*t, they’re going to be scared for life. Supervillains gang rape, no thanks. Much rather them beat up the poor girl brutally with bats and clubs.

  3. I’m a fan of violence. Keep it coming.

    • Haha, I second that.

  4. Not sure I want to see supervillain gang rape tho……just saying.

    • Im all for it as long as it is with purpose. Sometimes I feel writers say, “lets be edgy and controversial” and they just add stuff for the sake of coverage and attention. I would like to have it in the film only if needed.

      • “lets be edgy and controversial”

        That seems to be exactly what Millar did in Kick ass 2. I have little to no interest in this.

    • I with you, no gang rape for me thank you…

      • I’m with you*

  5. I wasn’t really a fan of the first one (Chloë Grace Moretz’s Hit-Girl was the only real highlight for me) and unfortunately the premise for the sequel doesn’t sound that appealing either to be quite honest.

    An issue that I have with all of this is, if Hit-Girl’s identity is publicly known, why hasn’t she been arrested for all the murders that she’s committed? And who in their right mind would pick on Hit-Girl behind her back KNOWING who she is? She’s freakin kill you for calling her names!!

    I’ll keep an open mind, but I’m not expecting much…

    • I was thinking the same thing about if her identity is publicly known. You would think she be incarcerated.

      Also…you said “Chloë Grace Moretz’s Hit-Girl was the only real highlight for me”…what about Big Daddy? That was Nicolas Cage’s best movie performance since “Leaving Las Vegas.” ;)

  6. @B-List Pornstar Extra & The Avenger:
    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing as well. Like wouldn’t the mob be after her or something. I doubt she would be in prison because remember she’s only a little girl. Also why would you piss her off? You think that’s a good idea!

    Also, I think I know who Dave’s identity might be reveled to. (SPOILER ALERT for those who have not read the comic): his dad.

    • Well, maybe not jail, but certainly some sort of “correctional institution”.

  7. Keep the violence, give us more if possible. But keep the gang rape scene out of it, nobody wants to see that.

    • I would.

      • Then you’re sick in the head.

  8. Lol.whos gonna get raped?

    • hit girl.

    • Actually, no Hit Girl does not get raped. Katie D. (that girl that Dave likes) gets raped. NOT Hit Girl.

      • No Dave, right up the @$$. lol

  9. I think Moretz’s Hit Girl was one of the best acting performances of all time. THat being said, I enjoyed the film much more til I read the comic which was much MUCH better (better Big Daddy secret; no jet-pack; better resolution between Kick Ass and the girl he likes).

    I am a bit worried that Millar went too over the top in his sequel just to be graphic for graphicness sake. Ah well.

    • comic was garbage. film was better.

      • FYI Renji, I was referring only to Kick Ass 1 comic (never read Kick Ass 2 or Hit Girl). I agree that the film went for a different tone, but the jet pack kind of kills the whole third part (plus the final “boss battle” is anti-climactic). I agree with you that occassionally, Millar goes way overboard for shock value, but dont think that was the case in Kick Ass. Both the movie and the comic do certain things well, I just prefer the comic.

        Either way, I am definitely psyched for a Kick Ass 2, especially if they return the awesome cast.

  10. they shouldn’t do a faithful adaption of kickass 2 on film. the comics could have been great deconstruction of the superhero genre but are largely just shock value fluff. the first film changed a few things and made it a great deconstruction and simultaneously a great reconstruction. they should do the same with kickass 2.

  11. The director, Jeff Wadlow, is a complete hack. Let’s band together to stop Universal from ruining Kick-Ass 2!

  12. From the 60 year-old “fanboy”: …The novelty of the first movie can only be sustained in the second production by a strong focus on one of the prior supporting characters. The concensus seems to be one of further developing Hit Girl, and I agree. I’d like to see how life plays out for her in her new home and high school prior to some horrible event sparked by the Red Mist that serves as a catalyst for bringing Hit Girl back together with Kick Ass to save the day. BTW, if they ever do a remake of Supergirl, a much younger version than the one portrayed by Helen Slater in 1984 would be perfect, and Chloe G. Moretz would be ideal for that part, in my humnle estimatation. In the meantime, keep on kicking ass!

  13. I read this piece of writing fully about the comparison of most up-to-date and earlier technologies,
    it’s awesome article.
