‘Kick-Ass’ Will End with Teaser for Sequel

kick ass movie comic book Kick Ass Will End with Teaser for Sequel

Although Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass doesn’t premier for another seven months, Mark Millar (co-creator of the comic) already has high expectations, telling MTV that a sequel is already in the works. According to Millar:

“There’s a basic plot. The series ends on a teaser for the next one, and the movie ends on that teaser, too…We don’t want to sound too cocky, but we know this is good. It didn’t cost that much money to make. There will definitely be another one.”

Millar and Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn have been hinting at a sequel for months now. In fact, we first reported the possibility of a sequel before Kick-Ass premiered any footage at Comic-Con or even had a distributor. Can you say confidence? I wonder if this is the “different ending” artist John Romita, Jr. talked about a few months back?

Expectations for Kick-Ass are very high, especially among the comic’s core audience. If the film’s reception at Comic-Con is any indication, however, fanboys should be more than satisfied. The real question is whether or not Kick-Ass can find success outside of the film’s built-in fanbase.

As Watchmen demonstrated, the public’s thirst for unconventional R-rated comic book films is tepid at best. On the other hand, Watchmen had a much higher budget than Kick-Ass and was attempting to tell a story that was much larger in scope. Assuming critics don’t kill it first, I have a feeling that Kick-Ass will more than make its budget back.

What do you think? Is talk of a sequel a bit premature, or are you already ready for Kick-Ass 2, 3, 4, and more?

Kick-Ass hits theaters on April 16th, 2010.

  1. I have the script for this movie, I read it, and- I have to say… it was aggressively awesome.

    I would consider myself a VERY harsh critic but this movie did a phenomenal job of mixing action, comedy and gore together. And I love the little wink “Yeah, we know how improbable this stuff is” that this movie has, it’s got an unique vibe.

    And- I got this from reading the script alone.

    Now- regarding the ending;
    Yes. The ending CLEARLY shows the viewers that a sequel will definitely happen. It’s not only a “Dead bad guy snaps his eyes open after the credits” ending, but it is also a “Radioactive spider crawls around a room of sleeping cops after the credits” these examples of course are not what literally happens (i wouldnt spoil it) but in a figurative way, sorta.

    By the way, Nick Cage is a huge miscast in this movie. He does not in any way remind me of the character he is playing (Big Daddy)
