"Kick-Ass" ist die Verfilmung der gleichnamigen Comic-Serie von Mark Millar...
Was passiert, wenn ein High-School-Schüler (Aaron Johnson, u.a. "Herr der Diebe") auf die Idee kommt, ab sofort ein Superheld zu sein, sich dazu lediglich eine Maske überstreift und deshalb glaubt unbesiegbar zu sein? Er wird mit der harten Realität konfrontiert !!!
Slashfilm meldet... [...] Mark Miller tells ASK MEN UK that Kick-Ass 2 will be all about the villains:
"Kick-Ass was about a kid who loved superhero comics going out dressed up as a superhero and doing what he had always fantasised about doing. The sequel is more like A Clockwork Orange, about a bunch of little shits who are like "Oh my God there’s these superheroes out there, let’s go and [frick] them up." They dress up as super-villains to try and find them and go about doing robberies and rapes dressed as supervillains. Kick-Ass felt like what a real superhero would be like and Kick-Ass 2 is about what a supervillain would be like, and how would the superhero stop them. There are two major new characters in the next movie. One’s called Mother Russia, who’s pumped up on steroids - she’s the ultimate killing machine. Then there’s an older superhero, a retired guy who’s fed up with the little shits in the neighbourhood and forms a team of superheroes. I had Johnny Depp in mind when I was writing, but I said that in an interview, then the next day it went on like 500 websites." [...]

"We shoot Kick-Ass 2 and American Jesus this summer. Then Matthew and I have Secret Service, which is a neddy James Bond," Mark explains. [...]
DH meldet... Late Friday, rumours surfaced that "Kick-Ass" co-writer Jane Goldman was already at work on the script for the proposed sequel.
Now, Goldman has shot down reports, saying on her Twitter account "saw a few erroneous reports today that I'm currently writing Kick Ass 2 script - sorry if anyone's disappointed, but not true. Currently writing for 2 other projects, then on to lovely Matthew Vaughn's next thing (right now, looks unlikely to be KA2) when X-Men post-prod' ends". [...]

Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zu einer Testvorführung... [...] I couldn't find any flaws in "Kickass." It was nearly a perfect script, filled with at least 8 to maybe 11 "oh shit" moments and lines that made people clap and freak out. Not only was it filled with amazing action sequences reminiscent of the gun play in The Professional or the fight work in the last two Batman films (hold the fast editing), it was simultaneously heartfelt and funny ´[...]

Moriarty von AICN liefert seine Kritik zum Drehbuch... Und bei Millarworld.tv berichtet Mark Millar über seinen Besuch am Set in den Elstree Studios... [...] The sets being built yesterday included a massive comic store that's going to be a continuous back-drop in the story and SURE to become a news item once we release what the shop is called (Hint: It's an ad for one of our friends). We also saw the gangster's penthouse in a half-finished state and the model for weird gadget Kick-Ass will be using in the third act. The stunt guys are all out in Canada at the moment where filming resumes in a couple of days [...]
Kick-Ass, Red Mist and Hit-Girl's costumes are all completely done and ready to be flown to Canada at the weekend. Also standing right in front of me was the mentally-ill Armenian guy's costume from the opening three pages of issue one. The problems the tech people had with the wings has been fucking mental, but all resumed now and it's worked out great. I sort of couldn't believe it when I was looking at it. Johnny is going to flip when he hits Canada next week and sees all this stuff that popped out of his pencils standing in three dimensions. [...]
Slashfilm.com meldet... With buzz climbing for his performance in the October comedy, Sex Drive, actor Clark Duke has landed a role in Matthew Vaughn’s violent comic book flick Kick-Ass. Ever since we laughed our asses off at Duke being repeatedly mistaken for a girl on the web series, Clark and Michael, we’ve hoped to see him stake a claim in cool features, so this is great news. [..] Duke will play Marty, a good friend to the film’s titular character [...]
